During Tuesday night's State of the Union, many Democrats reacted with disgust at remarks that were made by Donald Trump. In response, the president's press secretary decided to single out House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi.

Sanders on Pelosi

Heading into the State of the Union address on Tuesday night, questions were raised as to what kind of speech Donald Trump would give. Over the course of the next 90 minutes, Trump appeared mostly non-controversial, hitting light tones that appealed more to moderate conservative crowd rather than his far right base.

However, several times throughout his speech Trump made comments that didn't go over well with some of the top Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi who was seen on more than one occasion grilling the president. This issue was discussed by Sarah Huckabee Sanders during an interview with CNN on January.

Joining CNN host Chris Cuomo on Wednesday morning was White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders who didn't hold back her thoughts on the Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi, in regards to their reaction to the State of the Union. "I think Nancy Pelosi looks like that all the time.

I think she should smile a lot more often," she said. Not stopping there, Sanders went on to accuse Pelosi and other Democrats of having "bitterness" that is dividing the country.

Instant reaction

Following her remarks, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was called out across social media. "Can you imagine what would be said if Nancy Pelosi made a comment to the press that was like 'I think (SHS) needs to lose 40 pounds, she embodies the excess of the GOP?'" one tweet read in reference to the size difference between the two women.

"Will someone please explain the definition of the word BUT to Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

She sounds like a fool in her statements defending her boss. Any words said prior to the word BUT means Nothing," a Twitter user wrote. "(SHS) should apologize to the world for her puke inducing existence. Also, smile more," another tweet added.

"To be fair, I don’t think Sarah Huckabee Sanders should smile either. I think making a face like you’re trying to hold down a bad tuna sub is 100% appropriate for a person who sells a slice of her soul on TV every day," TV writer Caissie St.

Orange wrote. "(SHS) should look in the mirror before criticizing ANY human. She's a joke," yet another tweet noted. The backlash continued as the fallout to the State of the Union is showing no signs of slowing down.
