‘Fake News’ Alert! Trump’s Social Media Director Tweets False Hurricane Irma Video


On Sunday, White House social media director Dan Scavino tweeted a video he claimed was of Hurricane Irma – but it wasn’t!


In the tweet which he has since deleted, Scavino said it showed planes in the flooded Miami International Airport.

Scavino went so far as to tag President Donald Trump and VP Mike Pence’s twitter accounts, essentially exposing the country’s leaders to ‘Fake News.’

The airport responded to the tweet alerting Scavino to his error:

Scavino eventually took down his tweet and acknowledged his error:

For the record, the video tweeted by Scavino was from flooding at an airport in Mexico City two weeks ago, and can be viewed below:
