Everyone Points and Laughs at James O’Keefe’s Incredibly Embarrassing Journalism Blunder

The Washington Post reported today that infamous conservative provocateur James O’Keefe and his sting organization attempted to sell the paper on a fake story about Roy Moore. A woman who apparently works for O’Keefe’s operation went to WaPo to falsely claim that the embattled Alabama GOP Senate nominee impregnated her when she was 15 and that she later got an abortion.

Obviously, since WaPo was the first to report that Moore pursued sexual relationships with teenage girls when he was in his 30s, Project Veritas was hoping that the Post would run with this made-up tale so O’Keefe could use the story to discredit the paper. However, since the Post employs actual, real-life journalists, the fake story was easily sniffed out and Project Veritas was exposed.

And, man, did the entire Internet just have a good ol’ time at O’Keefe’s expense. For the most part, folks on Twitter couldn’t stop pointing and laughing at Project Veritas’ massive self-own:
