The Environmental Protection Agency sent out a press release on Thursday, apparently intending to feature praise of President Trump's recent rollback of Obama-era climate and energy rules.
But the first statement in that list not only misattributed the source, but was almost exactly the opposite of the message's intent.
The statement, misattributed to Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) but actually from Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE), was an unflinching criticism of the order.
Here's the full statement.
Trump has repeatedly called climate change a "hoax," though he has also said it might be real. His EPA head, Scott Pruitt, has gone against his own department's website on the causes of climate change.
The EPA later sent a correction with Capito's actual statement.
Shortly after Trump's inauguration and subsequent gag order on the EPA , "rogue" versions of some government agencies popped up on Twitter, many spouting climate change facts while claiming to be run by employees of the agencies. One of them was @ActualEPA facts.
However, there's no evidence that the two are connected.
