In light of the news that Bill Gates acknowledged an extramarital affair with a Microsoft employee, a Facebook post with what appears to be a screenshot of a tweet from Chelsea Clinton weighing in on the news, has gone viral. The purported tweet is accompanied by a picture of Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.
This is not a real tweet from Clinton.
A spokesperson for Chelsea Clinton, Sara Horowitz, confirmed to The Dispatch Fact Check via email that the tweet is “fake.”
Aside from the fact that the screenshot of the post does not match the real font or format of a genuine tweet, the tweet in question does not appear anywhere on Clinton’s Twitter Page or in her Twitter archive.
