NBC News senior White House correspondent Kelly O'Donnell, who is also president of the White House Correspondents' Association, earned ridicule on social media for sharing a post in which she shared a "clear sign" that former President Donald Trump is no longer president of the United States.
"A clear sign he is not president anymore. Despite all the motorcades and perks, his plane has to wait to taxi. Air Force One gets immediate clearance," O'Donnell wrote when sharing a photo of what appears to be Trump's aircraft and another plane.
The post has amassed more than 4 million views so far, and many people have responded with ridicule.
"A clear sign Kelly O'Donnell is a totally unserious journalist," Jason Rantz wrote.
"At long last. A clear sign. The closure I needed," Eddie Scarry replied.
"I guess Kelly was a QAnon loon who thought he WAS still President," Sebastian Gorka wrote, adding the hashtag, "#JustAnotherHack."
"Congratulations on breaking the biggest story of your career," someone else mocked.
Others suggested that high gas prices are a signal that Trump is no longer in office.
"Another sign that Trump isn't president anymore: these gas prices," tweeted Charles Correll III, speechwriter for House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).
"Gas prices are the clearest sign Trump is not president anymore," someone else wrote.
"The clearest sign he isn't President is the current economy, war in Ukraine, high inflation, energy dependence, open borders with mass migration and a country that is in decline while the politicians get richer, the lobbyists steer policy and the good people of this country bear the cost," another person wrote.
"The replies to this post are spectacular," Megyn Kelly opined.
"You see what journalism has become. This person is meant to lead other journalists to hold @JoeBiden to account! The replies to the post are brutal," tweeted, Simon Ateba, chief White House correspondent at Today News Africa in Washington.
