Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was mocked Tuesday after claiming that a “hacker” had “erased” her Twitter account — despite making this announcement from her account and with no evidence of past posts being deleted.
“I have been hacked and my Twitter account has been erased,” Waters, who serves as chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, wrote on Twitter. The California Democrat claimed she knew the culprit behind the so-called hack, vowing: “I will take care of this. M Waters.”
Waters did not provide any further details regarding the matter. The congresswoman’s tweet sparked mockery, memes, and wise-cracking from reporters across the political spectrum. more
