On Thursday, the Huffington Post reported that White House reporters are planning a party for the departing Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, complete with “farewell drinks,” at a fancy D.C. restaurant sometime next week.
In no time, the internet weighed in, with numerous commenters on Twitter incredulous that journalists would honor a press secretary notorious for habitual lying, attempts to silence reporters, and in recent weeks, her total absence from the briefing room.
Here are some of the reactions:
