Finally, the episode of “Mean Tweets” that we’ve all been waiting for.
Amid the most contentious election process of my lifetime, Jimmy Kimmel is once again back to provide us with some much-needed comic relief.
“While the Presidency and even Democracy hangs in the balance, we know one thing for sure, that the internet is terrible and caused all of this. Social media is trying to kill us. So, as we near the end of an exhausting election we asked some well-known names from the world of politics to read some of the worst things ever written about them.”
The video featured Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Ted Cruz, Andrew Yang, Anthony Scaramucci, Nancy Pelosi, Cory Booker, John Kerry, Al Franken, John Kasich, Pete Buttigieg, Adam Schiff, and Mike Bloomberg.
Hollywood actors, athletes, rock stars…. roasting them every so often just to drop their ego a notch is all well and good, but there is something just so damn satisfying about watching these politicians, on both sides of the aisle, confront their Twitter haters. Something tells me they could all use a reality check every once in a while.
