Sarah Palin didn't hold back in her criticism of Saturday night's White House Correspondents' Dinner.
"That #WHCD was pathetic. The rest of America is out there working our asses off while these DC assclowns throw themselves a #nerdprom," Palin tweeted after the event.
The former Alaska governor also took to Facebook to blast the event, although there she held back on the more colorful language.
"Yuk it up media and pols," she wrote. "While America is buried in taxes and a fight for our rights, the permanent political class in DC dresses up and has a prom to make fun of themselves. No need for that, we get the real joke."
Palin has never attended the event, but she did go to the Vanity Fair and MSNBC after-parties in 2011. Her daughter, Bristol, and husband, Todd, have gone to the dinner in previous years, the Washington Post reports.
