As Twitchy reported yesterday, Hurricane Sandy has spawned a flood of fake disaster photos. And tonight, smarter-than-you race-baiting 9/11 truther and MSNBC contributor Touré fell for one of them. Hard.

The mockage was swift and glorious:

So amazingly fake. RT @toure: This is the most incredible Sandy pic I’ve seen yet. A scuba diver in the subway. bit.ly/RrMGRL

— Michael C Moynihan (@mcmoynihan) October 31, 2012

@toure You honestly believe that’s real? LOL No wonder you’re invited to appear on @msnbc so often.

— Flora Duh (@FloraDuh1) October 31, 2012

@toure Yep… notice the incredible water reflections on the floor… underwater… #suckah

— TruckingConservative (@Jim__Smith) October 31, 2012

Yes, most incredible. And clever, but not believable. For starters, the lights are on … RT @toure: twitter.com/Toure/status/2…

Who wants to be the one to explain Photoshop to @toure? twitter.com/toure/status/2…

And this is why you’re a truther. RT @toure: This is the most incredible Sandy pic I’ve seen yet. A scuba diver in the subway.

Now we know @toure will fall for all kinds of shit: 9/11 Trutherism, Obama, fake scuba subway pics ….

@toure Wow yeah here’s another ‘incredible Sandy pic’, you gullible halfwit: twitpic.com/b8x1sw

— Robert Harkin (@DoomsdayPicnic) October 31, 2012

Share photos on twitter with Twitpic

Praise. Jeebus.

Just FYI: @toure‘s standard operating procedure is to pretend he was joking.

— John Ekdahl, Jr. (@JohnEkdahl) October 31, 2012

Lo and behold, Touré tried to cover his tracks:

Ok, the subway scuba pic is fake. That’s why it’s incredible. Cuz it’s not credible.

— Touré (@Toure) October 31, 2012

Neither is Touré. About anything. But the backpedaling came too late; the damage was done.

Told ya. He was “kidding” RT @toure: Ok, the subway scuba pic is fake. That’s why it’s incredible. Cuz it’s not credible.

— John Ekdahl, Jr. (@JohnEkdahl) October 31, 2012

I do not think it means what you think it means RT @toure Ok, the subway scuba pic is fake. That’s why it’s incredible Cuz it’s not credible

YOU DESERVE ALL THE PUNCHES IN THE FACE RT @toure: Ok, the subway scuba pic is fake. That’s why it’s incredible. Cuz it’s not credible.

Oh, but we did. And damn, it felt good.

Update:

Rut-roh … somebody’s cranky!

Getting dissed by @michellemalkin means you matter. (Thanks for the conpliment!) I never diss her because she doesn’t.

— Touré (@Toure) October 31, 2012

He got “dissed” because he matters? That’s one way to look at it. Unfortunately for him, it’s the wrong way. Touré got dissed because his prized pair of smartypants is full of holes.

We hope he enjoys the “conpliment.”

you just did, dingleberry MT @toure: Getting dissed by @michellemalkin means you matter. I never diss her because she doesn’t.

— PolitiCajun (@PolitiCajun) October 31, 2012

@twitchyteam @toure didn’t he “dis”, ergo compliment @michellemalkin with that tweet?

— Rob Lennox (@elpaco313) October 31, 2012

@toure @michellemalkin You just “dissed” Michelle. Or is it not a “diss” b/c you “dissed” her? That’s what makes it “credible” b/c it’s not?

— Eric Rodriguez (@erodthelaw) October 31, 2012

RT @toure “Getting dissed by @michellemalkin means you matter.(Thanks for the conpliment!)I never diss her because she doesn’t” #Incoherent

— Adam Baldwin (@adamsbaldwin) October 31, 2012

To be fair, coherence was never Touré’s strong suit. He is a 9/11 truther, after all.

@toure Getting dissed by @michellemalkin doesn’t mean you matter it means you were incredibly stupid to think that SCUBA diver was real

— Tim Jones (@coelkhntr) October 31, 2012

@toure Getting dissed by @michellemalkin means you so stupid that people noticed.As far as my daily entertainment, though, you matter, bro

— Joseph Ryan (@jmotivator) October 31, 2012

@toure Pretty much you got dissed by everybody that doesn’t open emails from Nigeria.

— JohnnyFriegas (@johnnyfriegas) October 31, 2012

Heh.

Update:

Touré’s delusion has reached new heights: he is now convinced that Twitchy CEO Michelle Malkin is in love with him. No, really:

@michellemalkin is now obsessed with me and acting stalkerish. It’s not a good look. I’m married. You have no chance with me. Am I clear?

— Touré (@Toure) October 31, 2012

Oh. Dear. Lord.

OH Lawdy!!! LMAO!!! @toure @michellemalkin

— Jeff Pye Lawrence (@JeffromTAirport) October 31, 2012

@toure @michellemalkin someone’s a bit conceited. Good luck dealing with her wrath! You should have stayed silent when you had the chance

— K (@kmangels1220) October 31, 2012

@toure @michellemalkin Don’t flatter yourself. She despises you as much as millions of other Americans do.

— John Stevens (@VikingGod) October 31, 2012

But the entertainment value is through the roof. Don’t stop now, Touré. We’re having way too much fun.
