A spokesperson for the Pentagon is now saying the message was ‘erroneously retweeted’ but for a moment it looked like the security agency was endorsing twitter user ‘Proud Resister’ who called for Roy Moore, Senator Al Franken and President Trump to all resign or step aside due to allegations of sexual misconduct. The tweet was retweeted-and then soon deleted-by the Department Of Defense Twitter account. “GOP: Stop making sexual assault a partisan issue”. Col Rob Manning confirmed the retweet was made by the authorized operator of the department’s Twitter account. In her own tweet Dana White, Pentagon Spokesperson, said the call for Trump’s resignation was ‘erroneously retweeted’ and contained ‘content that would not be endorsed by the Department of Defense’.
