Sarah Sanders Shares 'Mueller Madness' Bracket Mocking 'Angry Trump Haters' In The Media

Following the announcement that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into collusion and obstruction of justice were complete, and the news that Attorney General William Barr had decided not to proceed with any further charges, members of the White House staff and other supporters of President Donald Trump continued to revel in the news.

Many of the president's supporters and members of his administration have pointed to the media's coverage of Mueller's two-year investigation, repeating Trump's often-voiced phrase of fake news and calling for outlets such as CNN, MSNBC and The Washington Post to apologize for vilifying the president in their coverage.

On Monday, Trump's re-election campaign issued a list of Democrats who had criticized Trump on cable news networks and network programming on CBS and NBC, recommending that the networks avoid booking them as guests. The letter also stated if the individuals are booked to appear on a program, showing a video of their previous statements about Trump and his campaign allegedly involved in collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign, should be used and the guest asked to explain their comments.

Monday evening, The New York Post published an opinion piece titled "Mueller Madness: The media pundits who got it most wrong," including a four-quadrant bracket featuring divisions for cable news, network news, Twitter and print journalists.

"The president's haters no doubt wish to memory-hole collusion and move on to the next anti-Trump theory. But not so fast: We want to laurel the punditry "champion" — the one who peddled the most nonsensical nonsense, the wildest inanities, the weirdest theories and unsubstantiated stories," Post op-ed editor Sohrab Ahmari wrote.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders quickly picked up the story, retweeting the bracket with the message, "Mueller Madness! Which of the angry and hysterical @realDonaldTrump haters got it most embarrassingly wrong? #YouDecide"

Sanders' tweet quickly garnered thousands of responses, including Twitter user Molly Jong-Fast replying to say in a series of tweets that taxpayers paid Sanders' salary and tweeting about the bracket seemed like a poor use of tax dollars.

"Gloating is the only tenet of trumpism," Fast said in another tweet.

Another user, Debohhhh, replied to say, "As a tax payer, this is highly inappropriate for a governmental employee to use their official social media for such a petty and small post. #BeBest."

"Your twitter account appears to have been hacked by somebody extremely unprofessional," Twitter user Arkenor said.

Other users found Sanders tweet, and the bracket, to be a great idea.

"Love It!!! I vote for the #1 seed Rachel Maddow to win it all!," user mikelaib wrote in reply.

"That's awesome ! I approve my tax Dollars for this," Twitter user cubancapitalist wrote.

User JohnLockedown37 said, "Incredible. Keep up the great work! We appreciate all you do to combat the biased and dishonest media."
