When Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, tested positive for Covid-19 on Sunday, it wasn’t long before some people on the right tried to dunk on the president’s representative - and the US vaccine programme.

Ms Psaki released a statement confirming the news on Twitter, in which she said she had not had “close contact in person” with President Biden, but that she was disclosing the result “out of an abundance of transparency”.

“Thanks to the vaccine, I have only experienced mild symptoms which has enabled me to continue working from home,” she said.

Well wishes soon flooded in, but for Christina Pushaw – press secretary for Florida governor and Republican Ron DeSantis – she didn’t seem to understand the circumstances around Psaki’s infection and her pro-vaccine stance.

“PS: Get well soon, @PressSec,” she tweeted.

We’re not too sure insinuating someone is illogical and then wishing them well from a deadly virus is the best thing to do in one tweet, but whatever tickles your pickle, Christina.

Speaking of pickles, that’s exactly what Ms Pushaw found herself in online, when she was promptly corrected on why her argument was fundamentally flawed:

We hope Ms Pushaw has since been able to locate the logic in her mentions.
