Let’s get this out of the way first: we really think the following tweets, if necessary at all, should have come from President Trump’s personal account, @realDonaldTrump, and not the official White House account. But the White House is fighting back against senators’ calls to abolish ICE, so here we are:

Plenty of journalists are shocked that the White House account would “target” individual senators, but NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell wasn’t having any of it.

FALSELY in all caps was a nice touch, but Mitchell wasn’t through advocating for those poor, defenseless senators. Here’s where she transforms from an unbiased journalist into a legal scholar within 8 minutes:

About her interpretation of the law, though …

She certainly has stirred up a lot of people online who now think those tweets were illegal. For example:

Um …

But Andrea Mitchell tweeted it! ANDREA MITCHELL! There’s no more trusted name in journalism.

Yep … that eight-year nap is over, for real.

Not Obama too!

We’ll see who’s wrong when they frog march Trump out of the White House tomorrow with Mitchell watching proudly from the sidelines.
