While many on the right used the anniversary of the death of Ronald Reagan to celebrate his achievements, many on the left used to it mock all Republicans with vulgar insults.
Reagan's two terms in the White House from 1981 to 1989 are considered wildly successful revivals of conservatism in the United States. He died on June 5, 2004, at the age of 93 after a long fight with Alzheimer's disease.
On Sunday, some liberals mocked and insulted Reagan's legacy with ghoulish glee.
"Just found out that OTD in 2004 Ronald Reagan dropped f***in dead. Happy birthday to me you old dead b****," read one popular tweet.
"Ronald Reagan was one of the worst Presidents in US History," claimed another critic. "#Reagan was an awful person & we celebrate June 5 since he died on this day in 2004."
"18 years ago today Ronald Reagan did his one good deed for the world," tweeted one user who identified as a socialist.
"Happy ronald reagan death day to all who celebrate," read another popular tweet.
"18 years ago today, Ronald Reagan did the best thing he ever did. He died." tweeted a user who identified as "genderqueer."
"Happy ronald reagan death day," read one tweet with more than 8.6k likes.
Liberals were similarly outraged on Wednesday when the Biden administration announced on Wednesday that first lady Jill Biden would be honoring Nancy Reagan with a U.S. Postal Service stamp. Some were especially incensed that it was announced on the first day of LGBTQ Pride Month.
"Pride did not start in celebration. It started in defiance against people just like the Reagans. They had the blood of thousands of queer people on their hands," tweeted one detractor.
