Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) received widespread praise during her 2020 presidential bid for how she worked to convince young girls that it was natural for a female to run for president.
Warren would tell the young girl that she is running for president "because that's what girls do" -- and would then ask for a pinky-swear that the lesson had been learned.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo -- who works for the 45th man to serve as president -- on Saturday appeared to be mocking Warren's lesson.
Here's some of what people said about Pompeo's Twitter post:
