Flynn Jr Has Been Fired Over Fake News, What About Flynn Sr?

After the Pizzagate lunacy almost turned into a bloodbath at D.C's Comet Ping Pong restaurant, Gen. Flynn's son has been fired from the Trump transition by the president-elect for still promoting the insane conspiracy theory.

As wacky as Flynn junior has been on twitter, his father is much worse since he's a been huge Trump surrogate all along until he was named Trump's national security adviser.

Politico writes:

But Flynn himself has used social media to promote a series of outrageous conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama and their inner circles in recent months — pushing dubious factoids at least 16 times since Aug. 9, according to a POLITICO review of his Twitter posts. Flynn, who has 106,000 Twitter followers, has used the platform to retweet accusations that Clinton is involved with child sex trafficking and has "secretly waged war” on the Catholic Church, as well as charges that Obama is a “jihadi” who “laundered” money for Muslim terrorists.

In the vast majority of instances in the past four months, he was passing along other people’s conspiratorial tweets instead of casting them in his own voice. In one example, he retweeted a post about a Fox News story claiming that the Army had identified Clinton as an “insider threat.” Another time, he reposted a tweet by someone named “Eagle Wings” about an alleged United Nations one-world-government plot called Agenda 21.

Here are a few tweets I found from the General.

Former CIA agent Phil Mudd described Flynn's antics to Wolf Blitzer, thus, “I’m watching a clown show! I’ve had it with this, Wolf! I want to see a transition from a campaign to reality, and I don’t see it yet.”

Former State Department policy adviser Peter Singer said:

"We are not talking about policy toward China or Russia," Singer, now a national security strategist at the think tank New America, said in an interview Monday.

"We are talking about some of the most bizarre conspiracy theories out there. We are down the rabbit hole. How can you take him seriously when he is discussing people in D.C. drinking human blood? It is exasperating.”
