The New York Daily News reports:
Ron DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw was ridiculed on social media this week after tweeting a fake news story about a gay-owned, anti-gay dachshund.
On Monday, the conservative spokeswoman shared on Twitter the screenshot of a story, which was supposedly written by Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz, titled “This dog is the new face of online homophobia.”
The article, dated May 13, included a blurb stating that “internet trolls” have turned the dog “into a viral homophobic meme — and her gay owners don’t know what to do.”
The cultists, should you be unaware, loathe Taylor Lorenz because she exposed the woman behind the viciously anti-LGBTQ account, Libs Of TikTok.
