White House Trolls House Speaker With Brutally Honest Valentine's Day Card

A card posted on social media read, "Roses are red/ Violets are blue/ The border was crushed/ Because of you."

Looks like the White House sent a Valentine’s Day card to House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) ― but its message wasn’t nearly as loving as the typical V-Day card.

Instead, the card posted on social media noted that Johnson played a key role in defeating a border bill that even the conservative Wall Street Journal called “the most restrictive migrant legislation in decades” with “long-time GOP priorities that the party’s restrictionists could never have passed only a few months ago.”

Although many people suggested Johnson’s opposition to the bipartisan bill was only to help Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential election, he claimed that was “absurd.”

That didn’t stop the White House’s social media accounts from sending the speaker a heartfelt and brutal message: “Roses are red / Violets are blue / The border deal was crushed / Because of you.”

Johnson hadn’t responded to the Valentine’s Day poem as of Wednesday evening, and his staff didn’t immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.

Still, many people on X, formerly Twitter, noticed the White House was slinging arrows like Cupid.
