Trump Tries to Tag Fox News Host in Tweet, Ends Up Tagging Left-Wing Activist Instead
President Donald Trump tried to tag Fox News’ host Steve Doocy in a tweet on Monday but accidentally tagged a Los Angeles man named Steve Ducey instead. Ducey is a left-wing activist and campaigner against homelessness who has said many uncomplimentary things about the President.
Will be looking into the Scott Hapgood case, and the Island of Anguilla. Something looks and sounds very wrong. I know Anguilla will want to see this case be properly and justly resolved! @foxandfriends @SteveDucey @ainsleyearhardt

Steve Ducey is Hollywood Field Manager for LA City Council candidate Nithya Raman. Both Ducey and Raman have used Twitter to attack Trump’s policies, particularly his attitude to homelessness.
“Trump doesn’t wanna save lives he wants to disappear people to the desert for real estate profits,” Ducey tweeted in reply to the Mayor of Los Angeles in September this year.
Trump doesn't wanna save lives he wants to disappear people to the desert for real estate profits you dunderhead

Ducey also slammed Trump’s immigration policies and has frequently criticized Democrats for not doing enough and being hypocritical in the face of major issues.
Trump's brutal immigration policies (fueled by his white supremacist adviser Stephen Miller) are horrid but #Resistance Democrats need to reckon with the racist history of Border Enforcement.https://t.co/u4z1QuSi45 pic.twitter.com/NMigP5amPi

Nithya Raman, the city council candidate that Ducey works for, has also been highly critical of Trump. Back in 2016, she linked the then Republican presidential candidate to rape.

Funnily enough, Ducey was mistakenly tagged in place of Fox’s Steve Doocy back in August by someone replying to Trump. Trump has now made the error himself.
this is not the Steve Doocy you're looking for

Trump’s tweet had not been deleted by the time of writing.
