White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders — who is rarely seen these days since she has all but abandoned facing the press — was raked over the coals on Twitter for posting a meme attacking critics of President Donald Trump.
Mid-afternoon on Monday, Sanders attempted a victory dance after the president was cleared by Attorney General Bill Barr, based upon his interpretation of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report that the GOP now is hesitant to release.
For her part, Sanders posted a March Madness-eque bracket attacking members of the press and Trump critics.
The Twitter consensus seemed to be that it was unprofessional for someone on the government payroll to indulge in petty attacks, with one commenter writing, “Go home, Aunt Lydia, you’re drunk” in reference to a previous joke about the press secretary by comedian Michelle Wolf.
