The priceless moment was captured by Dalton Bennett of the Washington Post.

The reporter, Al Jazeera English's Kimberly Halkett, was apparently trying to get an interview with Gov. Mike Pence when she was pushed out of the way. She was nahhht happy.

But, actually. We've all been there. (Right?)

Everyone immediately fell in love with her, because obviously.

Jesus I wasn't ready for that "thanks a lot bitch" 😂😂😂😂

They said the video was both intriguing and surprising.

This video from the debate has: — Dramatic plot — Character development — Passes the Bechdel Test — Twist ending

And made them more excited for the debate, TBH.

"'Thanks a lot, bitch' might be my favorite thing of 2016. Sums it up real fuckin well," one person said.

"Thanks a lot, bitch" might be my favorite thing of 2016. Sums it up real fuckin well.

She won herself a ton of new fans.

Others wanted to see her at the debate stage.

And some said that the candidates could learn a thing or two from her.

I hope Clinton ends the debate this way. Walks up to dumpster fire, "thanks a lot bitch"! https://t.co/0uZJUSHVAl

Following the debate, Halkett told BuzzFeed News that she was working and could not speak.

CORRECTION

Helkett was chasing Mike Pence. An original version of this story misstated who she was trying to interview.
