The official social media account for Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) took aim at liberal critics Thursday on the deal that Democrats made with Republicans on President Donald Trump's judicial nominees.

Here's what happened

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) got Democrats to agree to unanimously confirm 15 judicial nominees in order that the politicians could return to their home districts to campaign for the midterm elections.

Brian Fallon, a liberal activist and former aide to Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), criticized the deal in a tweet that reflected the somber and frustrated mood among liberals about the defeat.

"Any single Democrat can object to this," Fallon tweeted in response to the news that McConnell had offered the deal to Democrats.

No Democrat objected, and the motion was passed unanimously.

A tweet from Sen. Hatch's office mocked his frustration by responding with an animated image of comedian Jerry Seinfeld pretending not to recognize a phone call.

When a liberal account attempted to mock Hatch with an animated image of the Senator reaching for glasses that were not on his face, the account came back with the perfect response.

The social media savagery of the official Hatch office was noted among those on the right.

The Hatch account concluded with a popular animated image of Majority Leader McConnell smiling.

Liberal activists expressed frustration and anger Thursday at the deal they said was a weak collapse of Democratic leaders to the Republican Party.
