WaPo reporter deletes ‘grossly inappropriate’ tweet about Biden visit to cemetery where his family is buried
Washington Post White House reporter Annie Linsky deleted a tweet on Sunday about President Biden‘s visit to a cemetery where his daughter, son and former wife are buried.
“Biden goes to church and walks through a graveyard in Wilmington as his legislative agenda in dying in Washington,” Linksky tweeted. After a flurry of criticism and outrage, Linsky deleted the tweet.
She said, “I deleted an earlier tweet, which was not intended to cause offense.”
Tech journalist, Ed Bott, responded by asking Linsky if she is “incapable of actually apologizing.”
The Washington Post reporter later tweeted an addendum. She said, “It was a badly conceived and insensitive tweet. I’m sorry.”
