In a spin on Jimmy Kimmel’s popular segment “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets,” the folks at NowThis News have asked politicians to read aloud mean tweets about themselves.
“Paul Ryan has such pretty blue eyes, sometimes it’s easier to forget he’s Satan incarnate,” says Republican Rep. Paul Ryan says in the video titled “Mean Tweets DC.”
“[Y]ou really suck a pig’s ass,” reads Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill.
“Hey Himes, I can’t decide whether you are stupid or willfully deceitful… can you help me out?” says Democratic Rep. Jim Himes.
And Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell pretended to hear voices when he read, “When was the last time you heard voices? It is important to take your medicine regularly.”
