National’s queen of twitter just got owned. She tweeted a fake news story and demanded that Jacinda Ardern denounce whatever it was the fake news story was saying.
Here is the tweet:
Newshub has the background:
National Party MP Judith Collins has shared a story from a website known for its ‘fake news’, calling on the Prime Minister to “denounce” the claims made in the story.
The story alleges France has voted against having an age of consent, “becoming the latest nation to give in to pressure from an international network of liberal activists determined to normalise pedophilia and decriminalise sex with children across the world.”
“Is @jacindaardern willing to denounce this legislation of child sexual abuse?” Ms Collins tweeted.
The site is the frequent subject of fake-news-busting stories, including a list of fake news sites identified by CBS.
Other stories currently on the ‘Your News Wire’ site include ‘Hundreds Of Scientists Debunk Darwin’s Theory Of Evolution’ and ‘FBI Admits ‘Aliens From Other Dimensions’ Have Visited Earth’.
This is unfortunate timing for Judith. Just as Newshub is running another who should lead National poll that Judith is currently winning.
But the big question is, will Judith be willing to denounce the use of fake news?
