Campaign 2016’s Silly Season: A Weekly Tweet Round-Up Aug. 6

Posted By on Thu, Aug 6, 2015 at 10:43 AM

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.

This week, we're posting a bit early to get out ahead of the debate tonight. 

If you're watching the debate — 9 p.m. Thu., Aug. 6, on Fox News — be sure to download one or more from City Paper's set of Bingo Debate Cards.

And fooling no one, Trump promised to play nice at the debate.
