Apparently, Sanders was attempting to take a swipe at Alexa by claiming that a rival product, Google Echo, allowed her 2 year-old to order an expensive toy just by yelling “batman!” If it seems like a long walk for that punchlines, that’s because it is.

Especially troubling is the fact that the President has a long, antagonistic history with Amazon, frequently targeting the company in his Twitter rants.

Worse yet, Sanders’ failed attempt at a light hearted joke ultimately violated government code, as elected officials cannot discuss purchases from private companies on government accounts.

Of course, where the White House Press Secretary did not know the law, Twitter did. What followed suit was a swift schooling for the Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
