Blue Check Twitter Mocks Tom Price’s Resignation: ‘Too Much Baggage, Overhead’

Once President Donald Trump announced on Friday afternoon that he would decide sometime Friday evening about his fate, it seemed like just a matter of time before Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price would be out of a job. Price opted not to wait for the axe to fall, and he resigned his post — in a decision announced moments after the President’s remarks.

Price has been under fire for spending exorbitant sums of taxpayer money on private planes. He offered to pay a portion of the money back, but this did little to quiet the widespread public criticism.

Blue check Twitter was quick to weigh-in on the latest Friday departure from the Trump administration; following Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Chief of Staff Reince Pribus, and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. Here’s a sampling of the reaction from politicians, journalists, and other verified Twitter users. (Warning: prepare for some puns ranging in quality from middling to Cillizza.)
