READ: Rep. Paul Gosar Deleted His Tweet Falsely Stating: ‘Let Me Just Make Sure I Have the Facts: First Pelosi Shuts the Government Down’

Wrong.

Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ) is in hot water following a tweet chock full of erroneous “facts” regarding the role of Democrats in the current government shutdown over funding for a wall at the southern border.

The outcry was so swift, that he soon deleted the tweet, but he neglected the fact that the internet is eternal.

First, Gosar claimed that then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) shut down the government when in reality Paul Ryan was Speaker at the time.

He also claimed that the Democrats refused to meet with President Donald Trump, neglecting the fact that Trump bragged about storming out of the most recent meeting with Democratic leaders, calling it a “waste of time.”

Then, Gosar neglected to mention that Pelosi’s letter to the President regarding the State of the Union (slated for January 29) did not seek to deny him his address, but rather delay it until the government reopens to ensure the proper security is provided.

Many were quick to correct him.

Nevertheless, Twitter let the roasting begin.

Before long, users were bringing up Gosar’s past blunders.
