READ: Chelsea Handler Tweets to Kirstjen Nielsen: ‘I’m Not Sure Where You’ll Get Hired With a Resume That Includes ‘Locking Kids in Cages”

Ouch.

On Sunday, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) head Kirstjen Nielsen became the 12th cabinet member to resign from the Trump administration. President Donald Trump has been increasingly vocal over his displeasure with Nielsen and her handling of border security.

Rather than a feather in his cap, the border remains a black spot on his administration’s record.

After a disastrous series of appearances before Congress where Nielsen’s competency was questioned, the Trump appointee abruptly resigned Sunday.

But people are sending her less than fond farewells online.

Comedian Chelsea Handler took to Twitter with her message. She posted:

“Best of luck to Kirstjen Nielsen. I’m not sure where you’ll get hired with a resume that includes ‘locking kids in cages.’ I’m kidding, good luck at Fox News.”

Nielsen will forever be linked with the Stephen Miller created and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions implemented family separation policy. After reports of abuse and neglect of migrant children as well as more than one death under Nielsen’s watch, she was called to testify before Congress.

But Nielsen seemed ill prepared, with few answers or knowledge to share in response to congressional inquiries. This lack of accountability for the deaths of children as well as the images of children in cages reflected poorly on Nielsen and her boss, President Trump.

Nielsen is a less than popular figure for both liberals and conservatives. One side saw her as heartless, the other not tough enough.

Very few people had anything kind to say about Nielsen in the wake of her resignation.
