Failed vice presidential candidate and half-term Governor Sarah Palin took to her Twitter account to call Stacey Abrams a “literal loser” on Tuesday. Abrams, by the way, studied public policy at the University of Texas at Austin’s LBJ School of Public Affairs and earned a Master of Public Affairs degree in 1998. Then in 1999, she earned a law degree from Yale Law School. She lost her bid for Governor in deep red Georgia in a rigged race but it was closer than expected. Abrams is set to deliver the response to Donald Trump’s State of the Union address next week, so Palin jumped in to call her a loser.

That backfired immediately.
You lost the VP race. You quit your job as governor so you could do a TV show. That got canceled. Now you’re just an idiot tweeting and trying to stay relevant. I’d say you live in a glass house but you’re too stupid to know what that means. Loser indeed.

Hey man, I forget, what are you most famous for again

I must have missed when you were sworn in as Vice President, literal loser.

Are you kidding me? Stacey Abrams has bachelor’s, master’s, & law degrees. She was a deputy city atty in Atlanta, & served in the Georgia House for over 10 years, becoming the first woman to hold a leadership position in that chamber. You didn’t even finish a term as governor.

My favorite scene in Game Change was at the end when they told you how you weren’t going to get to give your own concession speech and you tried to give one anyway and John McCain told you to bugger off.

Vice President Palin, you make a great point! Losers need to shut up!

Gov. Palin I just wanted to congratulate you on finishing this tweet.

Wow. A person who’s performance on the national stage set the standard for moronic loser disparaging a woman of color for losing a very close- rigged -election in a deeply red southern state. Sarah, you exemplify everything vacuous, uninspiring, & reductive in American politics.

How’d that vice-president gig work out for you half-governor?

Hey Sarah- losers are the people who never try at all or the ones that quit when things don’t go their way. Stacey Abrams keeps fighting and she keeps on going- that makes her a winner. She didn’t quit, like you did… do you understand the difference?

I am proud to have @staceyabrams represent my country and my party. Among her many accomplishments, politician, lawyer, novelist, and she was also the first black female major-party gubernatorial nominee in the history of the United States! She is AWESOME!

Remember that time she said Paul Revere rode his horse through the countryside, ringing bells saying, “Hey British, we’re coming!” ???

How many votes did you cost McCain just by standing next to him? Over 2 million?You couldn’t even land a job heading Trump’s VA, and he routinely employs handbag designers and dessert chefs.

Reminder: Sarah Palin wasn’t even invited to Sen. John McCain’s funeral.
