Was U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner being a gentleman, stopping his car to allow Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri to cross the Capitol Plaza?

We think so, but Kasie Hunt of NBC News is claiming Gardner almost hit the senator and posted this video.

Clearly Gardner was stopping to let her pass, and McCaskill was joking when she called out to him that he lost his only shot to take her out.

We call fake news tweet on this one.
