Sarah Huckabee Sanders got a little salty over her incorrect photo details

Marcus Gilmer

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders doesn't have time for your nit-picky, detail-oriented technicality bull, Twitter.

The secretary took a break from echoing her boss's venom-spewing at former FBI directer James Comey Saturday to herald Trump's airstrikes on Syria in retribution for the Syrian government's use of chemical weapons on its own people.

The tweet, posted on Saturday night, 24 hours after the airstrikes were carried out, garnered lots of reactions that forced a follow-up from Sanders, but not for the reasons you might expect. Like general opposition to the strikes or all of those old Trump tweets from the Obama era which Trump has now, uh, directly contradicted.

No, perturbed people called out the photo for not being from the actual meeting in which Trump ordered the strikes.

It might seem to be a bit picky to go after Sanders for that, but, then again, this is an administration that has railed against what it alleges is "fake news."

All of this forced Sanders to send a somewhat salty reply on Sunday.

To be fair, when you're the press secretary for a president who likes to criticize news coverage he doesn't like, but then continues to dig his own hole deeper with more bad news, you'd probably be drained by such parsing, as well.

So clean your pallette with this tremendous moment of zen reading by Sanders from the White House easter egg roll a few short weeks ago.

Ah, just another day in paradise.
