Scaramucci decries 'cancel culture' after Steve Scully suspension

BREAKING: C-SPAN suspends political editor Steve Scully indefinitely after he lied about his Twitter being hacked

Former Joe Biden intern and C-SPAN host Steve Scully was suspended on Thursday after lying about his Twitter feed being hacked, reports the Associated Press.

While the debate was up in the air, and Trump was criticizing Scully publicly, the C-SPAN veteran sent a tweet to Trump friend-turned-foe Anthony Scaramucci. While a casual observer might not see the harm in Scully asking a former Trump staffer just how he would suggest handling such a contentious personality after the chaotic and unhinged way Trump behaved towards Chris Wallace, the first Presidential Debate moderator, the tweet ignited criticism from Republicans, who questioned Scully's potential fairness.

Scully was placed on administrative leave, C-SPAN said.

Scully reportedly has since confessed to lying about the tweet, which he said he fired off after weeks of social media attacks regarding his role in the debate.

"This culminated on Thursday, October 8", Scully wrote Thursday, "when I heard President Trump go on national television twice and falsely attack me by name".

Mr Scully said that when he saw his tweet had created a controversy, "I falsely claimed that my Twitter account had been hacked". 'We were very saddened by this news and do not condone his actions'.

"Ignore. He is having a hard enough time". 'Some more bad stuff about to go down'. "Steve Scully just admitted he was lying about his Twitter being hacked", the president wrote on Twitter, repeating past claims that the debate was "rigged".

"These were both errors in judgement for which I am totally responsible".

He also asked for forgiveness from his professional colleagues in the media and at C-SPAN, where he has worked for the past 30 years. The Debate was Rigged!

Trump was quick to tweet after news broke of Scully admitting concocting the hacking claim and his firing.

Despite Scully's history of working for Joe Biden when he was a senator and Democratic Sen.

The Commission on Presidential Debates responded by reporting the hack to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and to Twitter.

Soon after Scully's suspension was announced, Mr Trump responded to the news, heralding his own "good instincts".

"Steve Scully did not originate the tweet and believes his account has been hacked", C-SPAN said in a statement.

The Trump campaign's attack on the nonpartisan debate commission began after the September 29 debate with former vice president Joe Biden, which had been marked by Trump's constant interrupting and moderator Chris Wallace, of Fox News, failing to gain control of the proceedings.
