Earlier this week, Twitter users unearthed a way-back gem from White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. It appears that Sanders, who is infamous for her particularly combative brand of snark when dodging press questions on behalf of the Trump Administration, brought that same signature bluster to a tweet she posted a year ago.
The tweet, originally posted during the election campaign in response to a tweet from Political Wire Publisher Taegan Goddard, appeared to throw a punch at Hillary Clinton during the FBI's investigation of her private email server at the time.
"Huckabee Sanders' Old Tweet Hilariously Backfires What goes out into the twitterverse so frequently orbits back to haunt one—and always at the most inopportune times, as Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been so painfully reminded today. 'When you're attacking FBI agents...'"LOL #karma— Dye Kavadas (@DyeKavadas) December 5, 2017
"When you're attacking FBI agents because you're under criminal investigation, you're losing." That's a direct quote taken from Sarah hillbilly Sanders Twitter account over a year ago. Karma stings when she bites.— neal rose (@nealresist) December 4, 2017
And while Sanders will no doubt roll her eyes at any attempt by the press to make her reconcile her words with the President's actions over the weekend, it seems turnabout is fair play in the eyes of Twitter users.
