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.

Another week, and the low-polling hangers-on continue to hang on in both parties. This week, there is an immediate opening for House Speaker some candidates might consider: It's not president but next in line after the VP. Pretty close!

Erick Erickson also got hit with the Trump insult cannon, but I'm more intrigued that Trump is not above FIRING A DOG.

Oh dogs, a politician's best friend. Ben Carson had an awkward week with off-the-cuff statements. No better solution than to pose with a rescue dog.
