White House Spokesperson Sarah Sanders jumped into the fray on Thursday afternoon, publicly deploring the mass shooting at an Annapolis newspaper that left at least five dead and seven injured by using her official White House Twitter account.
"Strongly condemn the evil act of senseless violence in Annapolis, MD. A violent attack on innocent journalists doing their job is an attack on every American. Our prayers are with the victims and their friends and families," she wrote.
Needless to say, Sanders was immediately reminded by Twitter denizens of her almost daily attacks on reporters asking her questions in the White House briefing room as well as President Donald Trump's incendiary rhetoric aimed at the press.
The responses -- which you can see below -- were not pretty.
