Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)'s spokeswoman AshLee Strong is not having a very good day.
Earlier on Saturday, Strong tweeted that the U.S. House of Representatives' freshly-passed American Healthcare Act (AHCA) -- also known as "Trumpcare" -- has been examined and graded by the Congressional Budget Office.
"While we're setting the record straight: AHCA was posted online a month ago, went through 4 committees, & has been scored by CBO -- twice," Strong tweeted.

Twitter responded swiftly and harshly as the social medium is wont to do, and Strong's subsequent plaintive tweets about how she was getting ganged up on by angry liberals just served as more fodder for mockery.
@brooklynmarie @onlxn @AshLeeStrong @snopes She just tweeted two links from March. That's not the same legislation, is it?— Charlie Millson (@Charlie Millson) 1494094091.0

@AshLeeStrong Hi! I'm the managing editor for @Snopes and we'd also love links to back this claim + the current score. Thanks!— Brooke Binkowski (@Brooke Binkowski) 1494091916.0
Even "Star Trek: The Next Generation" actress Marina Sirtis -- who played Counselor Deanna Troi -- piled on, calling Strong a "lying sack of sh*t."
