Trump Jr. Calls for Scully to Be ‘Fired’ and the Commission on Presidential Debates to be ‘Disbanded’ Over ‘Hacked’ Flop

President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., was one of the most vocal critics of suspended C-SPAN Political Editor Steve Scully who claimed that he was hacked after an ill-advised tweet. He has now called on Scully to be “fired” and the Commission of Presidential debates to be “disbanded.”

He stayed on him so much so that Washington Post reporter Jeremy Barr asked on Saturday, “Why is Donald Trump Jr. still going after Steve Scully when the second debate was already cancelled?”

On Friday, Trump Jr. asked, “Since Steve Scully claims he was hacked, will he allow Twitter to show all logins to his account? If he was hacked that could be a serious attempt of a foreign election intervention. If he won’t, did he an the commission lie to the American people?”

Then on Saturday, he stated in the morning, “Considering how outraged the media has been over potential election interference for four years it’s amazing that no one is covering Steve Scully (the 2nd debate moderator) supposedly getting his Twitter account hacked.

He wondered, “Has he filed an FBI report yet? If not, why not?”

Later that day before Barr’s tweet, Trump Jr. tweeted out screenshots of previous tweets where Scully had claimed to be hacked in 2012 and 2013.

Trump Jr. said, “Given Steve Scully’s long history of being “hacked” I wonder if he’s ever called the authorities, or is that just his excuse for being stupid and showing his bias on a public forum before moderating the 2nd Presidential debate?”

Following the revelations today, Trump Jr. tweeted, “Wow. Everyone really thought he was havked” with the “eye-roll” emoji and shared an AP article titled “C-SPAN suspends political editor Steve Scully indefinitely after he admits he lied about his Twitter feed being hacked.”

Trump Jr. then tweeted out, “The fix was in. He should be fired and the debate commission should be disbanded. Did the debate commission do anything to confirm that he was hacked or did they just go along with it because it was convenient? Anyone with a brain knew that it was bullsh*t.”

The co-chairman on the Commission of Presidential Debates, Frank Fahrenkopf, had staunchly defended Scully, telling Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade, “Steve is a man of great integrity, okay? I don’t know this question about whether he tweeted something out or not, I do know, and you’ll probably pick up on it in a minute, that he was hacked… Apparently, there’s something now that’s been on television and the radio saying that he talked to Scaramucci… He was hacked. It didn’t happen.”

President Trump has tweeted about the situation also, saying “I was right again! Steve Scully just admitted he was lying about his Twitter being hacked. The Debate was Rigged! He was suspended from C-SPAN indefinitely. The Trump Campaign was not treated fairly by the ‘Commission.’ Did I show good instincts in being the first to know?”
