On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders verbally smacked Democrat Ted Lieu so hard for going after her with fake news that the broken congressman had to issue a retraction on Twitter.
Lieu targeted the press secretary by quoting a report from The Hill. Though, as noted by The Daily Caller's Peter Hasson, the outlet completely misrepresented what Mrs. Sanders said earlier in the day on "Fox & Friends."
"Huckabee Sanders: GOP 'begged' Dems to work on tax reform," read The Hill headline.
But here's what Sanders really said: "Democrats shouldn’t need to be begged to be a part of cutting taxes for the American people," she stated. "They should've been begging and banging down the door of the building behind me to be part of this process and to be part of helping more Americans be more successful."
Quoting the false tweet, Lieu attacked: "Dear @PressSec: You don't serve in Congress. I do. And I can say with absolute certainty that you are lying."
He would later delete the tweet (after racking up more than 15,000 retweets, of course).
Sanders then hilariously crushes the California representative for spreading misinformation and kindly suggested he "spend less time tweeting, more time doing your job."
"Dear @tedlieu - I don’t serve in Congress, but I can read," wrote Sanders. "If you had read the story, not an incorrect tweet, you would see that what I said was Dems should be begging to help Americans keep more of their money. You should spend less time tweeting, more time doing your job."
The Democrat had to issue a retraction for his embarrassing tweet, though it was of course backhanded and ripped President Trump.
"Dear @PressSec: If the Hill tweet was incorrect, then my tweet based on it would also be incorrect," he wrote. "Unlike the Trump Administration, I am confident enough to admit errors. Also, I dare you to give the same tweeting advice you gave me to your boss."
The Hill, too, has deleted their tweet.
