Liam Fox denies sending controversial tweet while sitting in front of a giant picture of it. pic.twitter.com/TARGC0qLgu— Angry Salmond (@AngrySalmond) March 12, 2017
It’s been said many times before, but it bears repeating: people see the Internet. The latest victim of this is a British politician by the name of Dr. Liam Fox. The good doctor was on a television show passionately denying a Tweet that had been attributed to him. The problem was that as he was being questioned about the Tweet, the host was posting the actual Tweet on a screen behind him, and he continued to deny it…saying that it was from a speech from a year-and-a-half ago that was taken out of context…but never released by him. Even though it was from his Twitter page…and could be a seen on a screen directly over his left shoulder. Ooops.
