CNN Anchor Calls Out Tea Party Congressman Over Insensitive Joke… The Problem Is, He Doesn’t Exist

CNN Anchor Calls Out Tea Party ‘Congressman’ Over Insensitive Joke, But There’s A Significant Problem – The Blaze

When a Tea Party “congressman” representing Georgia’s “15th district” made a joke at the expense of Germans, CNN’s Christine Amanpour was quick to call him out.

“Maybe if we kept a better eye on them in 1939, WWII wouldn’t have happened,” Rep. “Steve Smith” tweeted after Amanpour announced her interview with the German Foreign Minister.

“Seriously?” Amanpour replied in disgust, retweeting his message.

The only problem is, there is no Rep. Steve Smith nor is there a 15th congressional district in Georgia. Someone apparently created the fake/parody “Tea Party Patriot” account to mess with people like Amanpour, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and others.
