A congressional reporter for the Washington Post viciously attacked President Trump’s new picks to head the Department of State and the Central Intelligence Agency Tuesday; calling the new directors “bomb throwers” and “torture overseers.”

The Post’s Erica Werner slammed the President’s appointees on social media within minutes of his announcement; suggesting his choices would face an uphill battle during the required Senate confirmation hearings on Capitol Hill.

“A Benghazi bomb-thrower will be SecState and a torture overseer will be CIA director — IF CONFIRMED BY THE SENATE,” she tweeted.

The journalist’s comments came under fire within minutes, with users on social media questioning the reporters fairness in covering the President’s nominees; writing “Welcome to balanced reporting from the Washington Post.”
