Yesterday, the upcoming debate moderator and so-called “journalist” Steve Scully was busted online asking Trump-hater Anthony Scaramuci for advice on whether or not he should “respond” to Trump.
It appears as though Scully meant to “DM” or “private message” that to Scaramucci, but instead, accidentally tweeted it out publically.
TIRED OF THE ADS? BECOME A PREMIUM USER TODAY!!
Obviously, everyone was appalled and called Mr. Scully out for his unprofessionalism and bias.
Mr. Scully responded to the incident and further embarrassed himself by saying that he was “hacked” and claiming it was not really him who sent that message to Scaramuccci.
Nobody believed that nonsense, but before much could be said, Mr. Scully deactivated his Twitter account and scampered off the internet with his tail between his legs.
But while he was gone, we discovered some other damning news.

Apparently, Mr. Scully has cried “hacker” a couple of times before.
Back in 2012 & 2013 to be exact.
That’s right, Scully claims he was also hacked in 2012 and 2013, and said he wasn’t the one who sent the tweets…he’d been “hacked.”
Jeez, just how many times has this idiot been hacked? 😉

From Fox News
Presidential debate moderator Steve Scully claimed through a statement by C-SPAN Friday that he believed his Twitter account was “hacked” after a tweet showing him reaching out to outspoken Trump foe Anthony Scaramucci went viral Thursday night.
However, resurfaced tweets show that Scully has a history of blaming hackers for his social media posts.
The “Washington Journal” host appeared to reach out to the former White House communications director, who has become a vocal supporter of Joe Biden, in the now-deleted tweet that read: “@Scaramucci should I respond to trump.”
Both the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) and C-SPAN have issued statements claiming Scully didn’t actually send that tweet.
C-SPAN’s statement said Scully “did not originate the tweet,” adding that the CPD was investigating the incident “with the help of authorities,” who were unidentified. Scully himself did not immediately comment.
However, critics who remain skeptical of Scully’s “hack” claim dug up old tweets showing him blaming hackers for other tweets that were made on his account.
In May 2012, Scully appeared apologetic about tweets that were made about weight loss.
“I apologize for Saturday’s tweets regarding weight loss, etc. I still have my day job at C-SPAN…darn those hackers. Have a great Sunday,” Scully wrote.
In another tweet from March 2013, Scully apologizes for posts that were sent by his Twitter account, though it is unclear what the content was in those tweets written by alleged hackers.
“I apologize for some earlier TWEETS…account was hacked…those tweets did not come from me. Thanks all for alerting me. SS,” Scully wrote at the time.
The two tweets, which were gaining traction on Friday afternoon, have since been deleted.
Sounds like this bozo uses “hackers” as an excuse when he gets into trouble with his own tweets.
Maybe when he drinks too much and can’t tell the difference between a public tweet and a private DM message?
Either way, this man should NOT be moderating anything, let alone a presidential debate. He should resign or be removed.
