Remember Jen Psaki? She’s giving Sean Spicer and Kellyanne Conway advice about lying . . . no joke!

A woman who could spin with the best of them is lecturing Trump administration officials on lying.

In an op-ed published on CNN, former Obama White House communications director Jen Psaki offered President Donald Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer and senior aide Kellyanne Conway some unsolicited advice: Stop lying.

“If the fact that you are speaking on behalf of the United States government and that the American people rely on the information you share isn’t enough, then the reality that this isn’t Russia, we don’t have a state-run media and you will be caught in your lie should be reason enough,” she wrote. “If you don’t have the information or the answer, just say so.”

Psaki, now a CNN contributor, may be best known for launching “hashtag diplomacy,” a reaction to Russia annexing Crimea, when she called on the Kremlin to “live by the promise of hashtag.”

Either way, social media users were astounded by the audacity of the former Obama aide to lecture anyone about lying.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
