In a stunning act of hypocrisy, Washington Post columnist and technology reporter Taylor Lorenz who weeks ago cried on national television that people were harassing and threatening her online, reached out to Governor Ron DeSantis’s press secretary Christina Pushaw to help her expose the person behind the popular Twitter account “Libs of TikTok.”
Late Monday evening, Pushaw posted to Twitter an email from Lorenz seeking comment about her story "exposing the woman behind the ‘Libs of TikTok account.” See Pushaw’s tweet below:
Amongst the predictable uproar on social media, The Babylonbee's social media manager posted from her Twitter account @Morganisawizard to reveal she has confirmation that not only has she reached out to Pushaw, but Lorenz also knocked on the door of a relative of the woman who runs Libs of TikTok, and has been calling numerous family members.

There was speculation about what Pushaw said in her response to Lorenz, with the popular Twitter account @Beyondreasdoubt posting what she should say, but Pushaw didn’t post her response.
NewsBusters reached out to Pushaw to get her statement to Lorenz, and she sent us this screenshot (see below):
Needless to say, this is Orwellian stuff. Mark Levin is right for calling The Washington Post "The Washington Compost".
