We slog through the twitter streams of the 2016 Presidential candidates, and give you a weekly round-up of the more entertaining ones, every Friday.

A relatively quiet week until Trump started insulting everybody.


Some stragglers from the Iowa State Fall, where it's all about the pork products. You decide: Who flipped it best?

Trump spent the week smiting various foes, but here's two opinions I concur with. Running as "Jeb!" is a weird PR choice, and yes, a wall is not a fence.

Awkwardly worded, it only reminds us that Christie also has legal questions about his own scandals to answer ...

I'm embarrassed for everybody.

We're probably only one campaign away from a target-shooting contest between gun-happy candidates.

A tweet to horrify copy-editors. Random comma, attached ellipses?! A lot of hesitation in this "bold" statement.

Lincoln Chafee continues to file opinions on topics completely unrelated to the campaign. This week: the garbage crisis in Lebanon.

And to wind up a tough week, here's a cute photo of Rick Perry's dogs. Wiener dog, y'all!
