Bloomberg Journo Fabricates Bernie Sanders Quote About Buttigieg Having A 'Gay Problem'

In the latest example of MSM hackery, Bloomberg reporter Emma Kinery took it upon herself to fabricate a quote from Bernie Sanders (I-VA) to suggest that 2020 candidate Pete Buttigieg has a 'gay' problem.

During an interview with New Hampshire Public Radio, Sanders was asked if gender is "still an obstacle for female politicians," to which he replied: "yes, but I think everybody has their own set of problems. I'm 78 years of age, that's a problem ... If you're looking at Buttigieg, he's a young guy."

Except, Kinery - in a now-deleted tweet, quoted Sanders as saying:

"Buttigieg is young and Buttigieg is gay."

Here’s the video. Watch the video and compare it to

With no explanation or apology, Kinery deleted her tweet and re-tweeted a verbatim transcript:
