A liberal pollster has refused to delete a false tweet about President Trump's Easter mass attendance that went viral because he says it "wasn't factually inaccurate" when it was posted.

On Easter Sunday, Matt McDermott of Whitman Insight Strategies tweeted out a collage of photos of former President Obama and his family attending church, writing, "The Obama's spent every Easter attending church service. Trump hasn't attended church once since his inauguration. Where's the GOP outrage?"

As of Monday morning, it has been retweeted nearly 32,000 times and favorited more than 63,000 times.

However, the message is incorrect. Trump and his family attended Easter services at Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida.

CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski later noted McDermott's inaccuracy, leading to a back-and-forth between the two.

McDermott said the "hypocrisy still stands."

When Kaczynski continued to point out the tweet was wrong, McDermott said it was correct when he put it up and blamed the White House for not putting Trump's church attendance on his official schedule.

Nevertheless, McDermott persisted.

As of Monday morning, the tweet remains up.
