Verified leftist Twitter got really upset with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday after she asked WH reporters to share what they’re thankful for.

With the Thanksgiving holiday coming up on Thursday, Sanders’ insistence that reporters give thanks before asking a question was supposed to be a kindhearted, example-setting gesture. Instead, it angered the left, who devolved into ad hominem attacks and cried about First Amendment infringement.

The leftist hero of the briefing turned out to be Cecilia Vega, who responded that she was thankful for the First Amendment, implying that it may be under attack by the Trump administration.

“I’m thankful that awkward briefing is over,” The Washington Post’s Josh Rogin said.

One verified musician attacked Sanders’ makeup, saying her eyeshadow looks like “Elastigirl’s mask.”

“Bizarre,” Will Sommer of The Hill said about the exercise.
