Sometimes, Sarah Huckabee Sanders just makes it too easy. Whether she's refusing to denounce slavery on national TV or getting into feuds over pecan pies, we can always rely on her to be terrible. Hey, at least she's consistent. In her latest snafu, Sanders chided Congressman Ted Lieu for tweeting instead of doing his job. That's when Twitter stepped in to make sure she knew just how absurdly bonkers that statement was coming from the spokeswoman for President Donald Trump.
California Congressman Ted Lieu recently got into some hot water with the White House over an inaccurate tweet.

He quoted a now-deleted article which reported that Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Democrats were “begging” to work on tax reform. Apparently, what she really said was that Democrats should be begging to work on tax reform.
But Lieu didn’t know that, and tweeted at Sanders, saying, “You don’t serve in Congress. I do. And I can say with absolute certainty that you are lying.”
As soon as the article was deleted, Lieu deleted his tweet.
But that wasn't before Sanders got ahold of it and tweeted her response:
Sanders had the audacity to end her tweet to Lieu with the words, “You should spend less time tweeting, more time doing your job.”
That’s actually a really funny joke coming from Donald Trump’s press secretary. You know, because Trump tweets literally all the time instead of doing his job of running the country? Gotta hand it to Sarah on this one–
What? She wasn’t joking? She tweeted this without a hint of irony? Say it isn’t so!
But it is. It is.
Apparently, Sanders has some fans out there who really truly thought she threw out a totally sick burn.
We’re sorry you had to see this. We know that you’ll never be the same again. But we had a point to make. And that point was: Some people are stupid.
Obviously, most people smelled the irony in Sanders' tweet immediately.
This Twitter user was kind enough to warn Sanders that her tweet — especially that last sentence — might come back to haunt her, much like the creation of the electoral college came back to haunt us in a big way in the 2016 presidential election.
Many other Twitter users weren’t so kind to the Secretary…
