Campaign 2016’s Silly Season: A Weekly Tweet Round-Up Dec. 14

Posted By on Mon, Dec 14, 2015 at 2:17 PM

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

The impending holiday season isn't bringing much good cheer or fellow-feeling to the campaign: The griping, fear-mongering and name-calling continues.

The next GOP debate is Tue., Dec. 15 (8:30 p.m. on CNN), and it marks the return of Chris Christie to the prime-time event. (Pataki, Graham, Santorum and Huckabee will put on a brave face on the early debate — 6 p.m., also on CNN.) The bromance between Trump and Cruz is over, and the two will be manning adjacent podiums tomorrow night. Look for insults, and the chance for personal-space invasion between these two.

This week, in Twitterville, we got a couple of petro-carbon gags:

Hillary tweeted out the new Mount Rushmore. I'm giddy imagining in what cabinet-level roles these funny ladies could fill ...

After chain sawing the tax code earlier in the campaign, Paul put the instrument to its true use.

Ted Cruz took a pair of insults in stride. He turned the other cheek on Cher with a passive-aggressive blessing, and met Trump's "maniac" accusation with a Flashdance clip (which doubles as an ass shot).

Can we trust a president who refers to himself in air quotes?

Can we afford a president that operates at this low-ball level of quid pro quo?

I feel this "report" is from an old cartoon: I see a giant box with a hand-cranked wheel and a sign taped on it that reads "Passport Machine."
