Busy Philipps Mistaken for Sarah Huckabee Sanders by Jon Cooper

Busy Philipps Mistaken for Sarah Huckabee Sanders by Jon Cooper
From Rolling Stone - September 15, 2017

Jon Cooper felt the wrath of a thousand Freaks and Geeks fans, as well as actress Busy Philipps herself, when he mistakenly identified a photo of her younger self in character as White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The mishap took place Thursday afternoon, when Cooper, the chairman of grassroots organizationDemocratic Coalition Against Trump(founded last year), shared what he presumed to be a throwback photo of Sanders to Twitter.

"Sarah Huckabee Sanders even looked habitually pissed when she was a teenager!" he wrote in the accompanying tweet. "I guess having @GovMikeHuckabee as your dad does that to you."

The photo turned out to be a screenshot of Philipps pouting in character as Kim Kelly. (Some other familiar Hollywood names also got their start on the short-lived cult favorite, which ran from 1999 to 2000: Jason Segel, James Franco and Seth Rogen, to name a few.)

Philipps was not amused when she caught wind of the erroneous tweet, and took Cooper to task in a series of outraged messages.
