Sarah Palin calls Stacey Abrams a ‘literal loser’ and gets pelted with internet karma

Former Alaska governor and failed vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin came out of hibernation Tuesday just long enough to mock Stacey Abrams, who will deliver the Democratic response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address next Tuesday.

Unfortunately for Palin, however, her comments were met with reminders that she remains one of the least popular people in the country.

Here’s what Palin tweeted Tuesday evening:

The reference to “literal loser” in the headline Palin shared is clearly meant to be a slam on Abrams, who did indeed lose the 2018 Georgia governor’s race by the slimmest of margins. It should also be noted that Abrams was defeated by the former chief elections official in the state, Secretary of State Brian Kemp, and there were numerous claims of voter suppression.

In response to Palin’s tweet, others on social media reminded the half-term governor that she hadn’t exactly done very well in the 2008 race, either:
