Journo Tricks Conservatives Into Retweeting Embarrassing Pix
June 1, 2021

Journalist/Twitter provocateurs Ken Klippenstein trolled some prominent Republicans on Twitter yesterday, including Matt Gaetz, Matt Schlapp and Dinesh D'Souza, into sharing a picture of Lee Harvey Oswald wearing his Marine uniform.

Klippenstein tweeted to them, pretending that Oswald was a family member.




Then Candace Owens got involved:

Guess Candace doesn't know that much like today, extremist Lee Harvey Oswald did indeed serve in the U.S. military as a Marine. No Photoshop required!
