Campaign 2016's Silly Season: A Weekly Tweet Round-Up Jan. 22

Posted By on Fri, Jan 22, 2016 at 4:20 PM

Things are getting frantic in the rush up to the Iowa caucus. Trump continued to dominate headlines. He locked in an endorsement from Sarah Palin, Mike Tyson and one of TV's famed duckhunters, Willie Boss Hog. (Willie's dad, Phil, came out for Trump arch-rival Ted Cruz earlier, so this is like a sub-feud.)

A bunch of eggheads at the National Review got together to publish an issue devoted to explaining why Trump is bad. One of the articles unironically contains the phrase "stand athwart Trumpism."

When your campaign is running on your choice of garment layers, it's time to pack a suitcase and go home.
