Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin attempted to mock Stacey Abrams as a “literal loser” on Tuesday.

It didn’t go well.

Abrams, a rising star in the Democratic Party after losing a closer-than-expected race in deep red Georgia, has been tapped to deliver the response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address next week.

But Palin ― the former Alaska governor who was on the literal losing ticket in 2008 when she ran on the Republican ticket alongside John McCain against Barack Obama― tweeted:

Chuck Schumer Wants A LITERAL LOSER To Deliver The Democratic SOTU Response

Palin’s tweet ― including the “literal loser” phrase ― was the headline to a story she was linking to, and not written by her.

But given the fact that she shared it without altering it, Palin was given a pretty blunt reminder of her own history:

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

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

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.

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

Self-awareness. How does it work?

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.

Again: can you see Russia from that GLASS HOUSE??

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

— Terry Coats (@terry_coats) January 29, 2019

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.
