A lie started circulating quickly on social media about Rep. Katie Porter, claiming that the Democratic lawyer said pedophilia isn't a crime. Rep. Ronny Jackson tweeted that Porter is the "embodiment of evil." Porter was talking about people on social media (Trump supporters) labeling LGBTQ individuals as pedos and groomers because of their sexual orientation.

CNN's Daniel Dale took Rep. Drunky McDrunkFace to task for lying about what Porter said.

Libs of TikTok, a noxious woman who is highly transphobic and homophobic, did the same thing. Even some of her supporters called her out. And she inadvertently proved Porter's point.

Her followers called her out.

Others called her out, too.

John is right. That's precisely what she was doing. The TikTok lady knows that Trump supporters will believe a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g without doing even a little research. I have an account on Truth Social. I admit that I use it to annoy people because I'm obnoxious like that, but the second I opened that account, I was flooded with people calling me a groomer or a pedo. It happens every single day there.

So, it's not just the LGBTQ+ community. Trumpers have spread that lie to include anyone that doesn't agree with them -- because Democrats support gay rights. It's harmful and dangerous rhetoric. And it's kind of bizarre to see that the first thing Truth Social users do in the morning is to think about pedophilia. They should all have their browsing history checked, including the TikTok lady.
