Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham appeared on Lou Dobbs Tonight last week and, instead of refuting John Bolton’s allegation that the White House had blocked his Twitter account, suggested that a guy who has been active on Twitter for nearly a decade and has more than 847,000 followers is just too old to understand how it works.
I wrote about this (with video) on Crooks and Liars yesterday. Do check it out.
Your theory is correct. I explained it in my C&L post.
I did not see or hear him say the White House had attached software, just that they had blocked him.
Can I say it? The explanations are getting weirder and weirder. Can’t get Bugs Bunny spinning madly away out of my head
Don’t get me wrong. I can’t stand serial lying Grisham. But I’m not going to say she’s wrong for once like a broken clock. Bolton’s original statement was some strange claim the White House had attached software to his Twitter account to block his access which sounds a bit crackpot to me. How exactly would that work?
What I could believe is he turned over, at some point, his Twitter account credentials to the White House (e.g., so some staffers could make announcements on his behalf) and they switched his password on him to silence him.
