For their counter-programming for the Democratic convention, Republicans brought in Omarosa Manigault, a former contestant on the first season of Donald Trump’s television show “The Apprentice,” to take on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy views on Tuesday.

Sean Spicer is the Republican National Committee’s communications director and chief strategist. His tweet promoting Maginault’s appearance at the press conference highlights the difference between Trump’s surrogates and the prominent officials willing to go to bat for Clinton.

On Monday night, First Lady Michelle Obama, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) offered rousing endorsements of Clinton. The next day, Republicans tapped a contestant from Trump’s reality TV show to talk about the former secretary of state’s foreign policy record.

The mockery on Twitter was swift.
