White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who cancelled last week’s scheduled press conference following the Parkland shooting massacre in Florida, received harsh criticism online for the callowness of her statements.
“Here at the White House the victims and families have constantly been in our thoughts and prayers,” she said.
In the same press conference, Sanders also melted down trying to defend Trump’s attempt to blame the shooting on the FBI’s investigation of Russian collusion.
Here are some of the best commentary:

"Here at the White House, the victims are in our thoughts and prayers." – Sarah Huckabee Sanders, whose boss golfed during all of yesterday's #Parkland funerals.
No wonder she bumped today's #PressBriefing for hours.
