In celebration of President Donald Trump, numerous White House staffers and Senators' infection with the viral pathogen behind the global pandemic, Georgia Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler decided to post a GIF of Trump created from one of his WWE appearances in a staged fight orchestrated by Vince McMahon.

The irony of posting something as fake and staged as Trump wrestling was apparently lost on Loeffler.

Backlash about her choice of posts was swift online.

CNN's Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper summed up the many things wrong with Loeffler's post.

He tweeted:

"A) he's still infected"
"B) his doctors said he's not out of the woods yet"
"C) defeating [the virus] has nothing to do with 'toughness' and to act as if it does is a huge insult to those suffering from it or who have died from it"

Loeffler's disregard for those who are also infected, died or lost a loved one was the most prominent objection to her post.

As of Tuesday October 6, over 308,000 people have been infected and over 7,000 people have died in Loeffler's home state of Georgia.

Some felt the clip Loeffler chose to share didn't show Trump in the best light.

Many felt the post said a lot about Loeffler.

Loeffler was appointed to the Senate by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to fill a seat vacated by Johnny Isakson who resigned at the end of 2019 for health reasons.

A former executive in her husband's commodity and financial services company, Loeffler will appear for the first time on the ballot in November 2020 when she faces off against a slate of candidates from her own and the Democratic party in accordance with Georgia special election law which allows all qualified candidates to appear on a ballot without going through the primary process.
