READ: Sarah Palin Tweets ‘Chuck Schumer Wants A LITERAL LOSER To Deliver The Democratic SOTU Response’

Sure you want to go there?

Stacey Abrams ran for Governor of Georgia last year during midterm elections, but her ideas and campaign stances held the attention of millions outside the state lines.

That’s why Americans across the country were thrilled when Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced that Abrams would be delivering the official rebuttal to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union on February 5.

Though Abrams lost her election by 1.2 percentage points (largely due to voting policies in the state designed to benefit the GOP), she’s retained the national attention brought on by her campaign.

But though Abrams is adored by Democrats, Republicans critical of her delivering the State of the Union response spoke out as well.

One was particularly notable: 2008 Vice Presidential nominee and former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin.

Palin shared an article from a far-right Republican blog calling Abrams a “LITERAL LOSER.” The irony seemed to be lost on the Vice Presidential nominee, who with the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ), lost her presidential bid in 2008 to a much wider margin.

Since the 2008 election, Palin has become more and more of a fringe politician, however she’s still fiercely popular with the Tea Party (her rhetoric during the 2008 campaign helped mobilize the then-burgeoning GOP subset) as well as many on the alt-right.

However, in the political mainstream, she’s regarded as little more than a GOP pundit, which may be why her tweet instantly began getting backlash.

They even reminded Palin of some of her statements from 2008.
