A staffer for a congressional Democrat tweeted out an edited video of an event at the Trump White House, where President Donald Trump allegedly ignored a wheelchair-bound child when he shook hands with everyone else.
Liberals were outraged and the tweet was retweeted (i.e. re-shared) by the likes of Keith Olbermann and author J.K. Rowling. The irony is that when the allegation was debunked, the staffer deleted the original tweet and apologized , “Deleted an earlier tweet because it turned out to be missing some context. Apologies.”
Here’s the video that the staffer tweeted out:

Another fake news outrage over a nothing burger.
