Hillary Clinton is using her Twitter account to spread fake news—also known as lies—the Washington Free Beacon has learned.
“2022 is the first year women’s faces will appear on U.S. quarters. It’s about time,” the failed politician wrote on Wednesday. She also posted a link to a story published by 19th News that also claimed “women’s faces will appear on quarters for the first time” in 2022. Journalist Alexa Mikhail amplified the statement, writing, “It’s FINALLY happening in 2022!”
Fact Check: That’s false. The face of Helen Keller, a woman, was featured on the Alabama state quarter issued in March 2003. That wasn’t even the first quarter to feature a real woman. More than a century earlier, Queen Isabella of Spain appeared on a special commemorative quarter released in 1893.
Clinton wasn’t just wrong. She was reckless. Spreading disinformation on social media platforms not only undermines public trust in our most cherished institutions, it threatens to erode our faith in democracy itself. Clinton’s failure to find success in politics is no excuse for this brazen assault on the truth.
