When even notoriously biased leftist fact-checkers accuse a fellow leftist of lying, it is obvious there is trouble brewing on the horizon.
Enter Chelsea Clinton, who was not necessarily accused outright of lying, but whose lie was subsequently exposed by the liberal fact-checking website Snopes.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, this week Clinton tweeted out two news stories — one claiming that certain climate information was “disappearing,” and the other alleging that Arkansas had just passed a law that allows rapists to sue victims who get an abortion.
Both stories were soon after revealed to be patently false, but instead of admitting as much, Clinton reportedly only “corrected” the climate change story but continued to run with the Arkansas one:
@ChuckRossDC Sadly, the Arkansas law is all too real. Thankfully, the other WAS mistaken & I corrected once I realized it.

Never mind the fact that even Snopes, a veritable ally of the Clintons, has admitted that this claim is 100 percent false. What the law in Arkansas actually does is allow spouses, parents and legal guardians to sue physicians who perform an abortion by dismembering the fetus.
“JR Davis, spokesman for Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, pointed to a section of the law that prevents damages from being awarded when a terminated pregnancy was the result of a criminal act: ‘Civil damages shall not be awarded to a plaintiff if the pregnancy resulted from the criminal conduct of the plaintiff,’” Snopes reported.
Yet as of Saturday morning, Clinton’s original tweet still remained intact:
Unconscionable – if only also unreal. Never thought I’d be wishing anything was fake news. https://t.co/lUNpMIL1CA

Behold the true colors of Chelsea Clinton, a woman so warped by radical leftist ideology that she would rather burrow deeper and deeper into her den of lies than just simply admit that the “news” she had shared is a total crock, aka a lie, aka fake news.
The irony is that her mother, defeated 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, made it a mission after her humiliating defeat last year to highlight the need for lawmakers to tackle the alleged “epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda.”
“It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly,” she said. “Bipartisan legislation is making its way through Congress to boost the government’s response to foreign propaganda and Silicon Valley is starting to grapple with the challenge and threat of fake news.”
Correction: With the “challenge and threat of fake news” purveyors such as her own daughter.
