David Frum Accuses Serena Williams Of Steroids Use, Former Bush Speechwriter Quickly Deletes Tweets

David Frum, a political commentator and a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush, took to Twitter to accuse Serena Williams of steroids use after the Tennis player won her eighth Wimbledon women’s World Championship.

Frum almost instantly deleted the posts, before then admitting that they were meant for a private conversation. Raw Story, via the Grio, managed to screen-capture Grum’s tweets before he deleted them off his @davidfrum account, though.

Frum wrote, “Not to allege against Serena — again I don’t know — but she’s not above the question.” He then followed this up with, “Fans don’t want to know.” Frum then finally tweeted, “Maybe. But consider how long sports press looked away from McGuire Armstrong et al.”

A few days before these messages were posted, Frum also took uploaded the following provocative post.

David Frum, who is now a senior editor for the Atlantic and the Chairman for the Policy Exchange, was quick to take down the messages. He then insisted that they were meant for a private conversation with a friend.
