    While some netizens bashed the Senator and praised her critics, others poked fun at the use of the word "Marxist" during the exchange.

    Republican Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn has got herself into some very hot water after dishing out a few unsavoury epithets online, at the hands of Democrat strategist Adam Parkhomenko who, as the Daily Caller points out, previously worked for Hillary Clinton during her unsuccessful 2016 presidential run.

    According to the media outlet, Blackburn earlier criticized Black Lives Matter on Twitter for being run by “trained Marxists”, later clarifying that she was referring to BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who has “called herself and her fellow BLM organizers 'trained Marxists'”.

    "You are inbred racist trash. Please f*ck off”, Parkhomenko tweeted in response.

    ​Adam's move elicited a largely positive reaction from his social media audience, with many netizens praising him and criticizing Blackburn.
