Campaign 2016’s Silly Season: A Weekly Tweet Round-Up Sept. 25


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.

Your correspondent took a week off to travel the nation's highway and byways, and price Trump pinatas.

Plenty has happened since. We lost two of our governor candidates: Smart-Guy Glasses Rick Perry and Harleys-and-Hamburgers-Lover Scott Walker. Both exits spurred a flurry of NICE tweets from the 14 remaining GOP competitors.

Except for Bobby Jindal, who's turned into the campaign's Mean Girl, forever dispensing insults, like this freestyle jab at Trump's friendly farewell.
Trump bit back.

Rand Paul was annoyed too.

Which annoyed Trump.
The GOP debates last week drew a couple tweets from the Democrats, but scheduled for a grueling three hours, one candidate simply took to his bed after two hours.

Mike Huckabee took a moment to share some foreign policy strategies.

Ted Cruz is polling in the single digits. Selling clothing that HIDES you might not be the best PR option. (And just what is that pink camo supposed to help us blend in with?)


Ted also offered this Zen koan: If the Department of Education is abolished, how can it end Common Core?


As they say, even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Lately, Lincoln Chafee has been focused mostly on relevant issues, but bless his heart, he returned to head-scratching form this week.

And so we bid a fond farewell to The Great Wisconsin Hope Scott Walker, who, given the amount of fast-food stops he tweeted, might be healthier off the campaign trail. The day before he quit, he tweeted this prophetic photo.
