Many on the left responded angrily at a report that some reporters were throwing a "going away" party for outgoing White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

President Donald Trump tweeted that Sanders would be stepping down from her position as his spokesperson, but it was a later report on Thursday in the Huffington Post that infuriated many online.

The party is to be held at an upscale D.C. restaurant with several media members invited.

"This is so damn embarrassing," responded former Obama advisor Dan Pfeiffer.

"Sarah repeatedly LIED to reporters and then refused to hold a single press briefing during the last 3+ months of her tenure." said former Democratic candidate Dena Grayson. "Good riddance, Sarah."

Media Matters' editor-at-large Parker Molloy demanded that the White House Correspondents' Association address why one of their board members was helping organize the party for Sanders.

"Is WHCA planning to address this?" she tweeted.

"Sarah Sanders spent her time as Press Secretary lying to the press and to the American people to defend a president who is dangerously eroding democratic norms," tweeted political scientist Miranda Yaver. "They shouldn't reward her with a goodbye party."

Feminist writer Jodi Jacobson demanded that the list of attendees be made public.

"I feel we deserve to know for the sake of integrity and transparency," Jacobson said.

Slate's Ashley Feinberg also tweeted an obscene reaction to the news.

The White House has not indicated who will take up the position after Sanders, but some reports indicate the first lady's spokeswoman is in the running.

Here's the latest on Sanders stepping down:
