Twitter quickly found out Thursday that Democratic leader Jon Cooper was not a Freaks And Geeks fan. The chairman of the Democratic Coalition Against Trump (isn’t the whole damn party against Trump??) fired off a photo from his Twitter account that he thought was a photo that proved White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has always been a bit of a sourpuss.

Only, it wasn’t that tall glass of Southern sour tea! It was Busy Philipps, who naturally went nuclear over the comparison:
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? IS THIS A JOKE? THIS IS ME FROM FREAKS AND GEEKS. FAKE NEWS. https://t.co/3l8WVntlG3

Jon boy has since deleted his tweet, but that didn’t stop Busy for going nuts. See, you should never remark on a gal’s looks, people. It’s mean! I learned that the hard way one time growing up when I told my mom she looked tired and should go take a nap. Thank God for my cat-like reflexes, or I would probably still have a mark on my forehead from the George Foreman grill she threw at me – with a sandwich still cooking inside! Entertainment Weekly said that, even though Jon took the post down, it took him a while to accept that the gal in the photo was actually Busy. Jon might be a contender for Dancing With The Stars next year considering the creative walk-back he then waltzed into:
I'm indeed a HUGE fan of Busy! She was my favorite character on Cougar Town (tho I did miss watching Freaks and Geeks). Anyway, I APOLOGIZE!

In Jon’s defense, if you Google “Sarah Huckabee as a teen,” that photo of Busy is the first thing that pops up. Busy added that it’s better to mock a gal for the lies she tells and not by the way she looks. Remember that Jon! Sarah tells those by the hour! Leave her signature growl from the podium alone. You’d rock one of those, too, if you had to craft impromptu defenses for Trump. In other news, if you Google for Donald Trump as a teen, your computer just gets up and jumps out the window.
