‘More phony news’: No, Rep. Louie Gohmert didn’t go to your home fitness center after learning he checked favorable for coronavirus

As we informed you previously, GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert has tested favorable for COVID-19

Remarks from Democrat Rep. Steny Hoyer obviously stimulated a spate of alarmed tweets from the media that had to be reeled back in:

Deleted earlier tweet– @LeaderHoyer was referring to Paul, not Gohmert. https://t.co/JtHsLd2qVo pic.twitter.com/S2bdk0G10 S

— Ben Siegel (@benyc) July 29, 2020

Deleting this tweet– Hoyer remedied himself later in the call with reporters stating he indicated Rand Paul went to the gym after evaluating positive, not Gohmert pic.twitter.com/p1tx6vatGe

— Katherine Faulders (@KFaulders) July 29, 2020

The original tweets from the media acquired a lot of traction prior to being withdrawn.

Gohmert likewise weighed in:

The reports of my going to the member gym are more #fakenews I have not been to the member fitness center in weeks.

— Louie Gohmert (@replouiegohmert) July 29, 2020

This story was yet another example of how someone “misspeaking” to the media can spread false information in record time. And speaking of false information …

And @RandPaul Paul did NOT go to the gym after learning he had coronavirus. So his correction was also inaccurate, yet everybody is retweeting it!!! https://t.co/2eb1XpVQnk

That isn’t real. Rand left the Capitol immediately after getting his test outcomes. https://t.co/2yWkYlsRtA

They can’t keep up with the lies … over time this is what takes place

Over and over and over once again.
