Funny Sarah Sanders Calls Out Amazon After 2-Year-Old's Batman Toy Order
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders took to Twitter to call out Amazon after her young son inadvertently ordered an $80 toy using the company's Echo device.
"Alexa, we have a problem if my 2 year old can order a Batman toy by yelling "Batman!" over and over again into the Echo," Sanders tweeted on Sunday.

Amazon has not commented on her tweet.
Critics then called out Sanders for using her official White House social media account for the funny observation, rather than a personal Twitter handle.
If you were a low-level staffer with no press duties in a big department, @PressSec, your boss might just stroll into your office and ask you to delete this. But you're not that. Employees throughout govt look to you to set an example because tone from the top matters. Do better.

Alexa, can you track @PressSec inappropriate use of an official Twitter account? Thanks.

Not sure you understand the purpose of the official @PressSec twitter handle.

Others on Twitter expressed concern that Sanders has the Echo in her home, warning it could be compromised and used to listen to her conversations.
