British Politician Denies Sending A Tweet That Was Literally Displayed On A Screen Behind Him

This one goes out to Donald Trump and all the “fake news” people out there.  If you see something that you literally did but didn’t like and there’s proof beyond a shadow of a doubt sitting right on a giant screen behind you,  just keep denying it.  That’s what one British politician did over the weekend.   According to Telegraph

Liam Fox has denied sending a controversial tweet — while sitting in front of a giant picture of it. The Secretary of State for International Trade was in an interview with Sophy Ridge when he claimed not to have sent a tweet from his account. The tweet, which was sent in March 2016, read: “The United Kingdom, is one of the few countries in the European Union that does not need to bury its 20th century history.”

Many retweeted it last week after reports that officials were calling their plans to secure trade deals in Africa as “Empire 2.0”. Mr Fox claimed the tweet had not been sent out by him, but that it was an “out-of-context” snippet of one of his speeches sent out by the Guardian.

I think that Liam Fox has set a new precedent for the American Government.  Anyone in the Trump administration must be watching this thinking “Of course! Why didn’t we think of that?”  Now, just in case Trump staffers have giant party featuring lines of cocaine and prostitutes, record the whole thing,  post it to Instagram and then have it plastered all over the news, no big deal.  Just say it didn’t happen.

For those reading this, the clip below is 100% real and is not doctored in any way.  This guy’s got some set of brass on him.  I’ll give him that.
