I believe that is a logical fallacy combo. It is a "red herring" coupled with a Straw man. The two ideas are not related (hence "red herring") and the logical conclusion you attribute was not what was said (straw man).

Go back and read her post. The conclusion was exactly what she was saying.

"Sorry, I think the number is more like 95%"

And the only evidence she offered was that she did it.
