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

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

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." 

Ouch. Cruz bravely tweets through tears after his former Mama Grizzly boo picks Trump.

Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee filed reviews of 13 Hours.

Earlier this month, not one candidate weighed in on David Bowie's passing, but Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey made the Classic Rock In Memorial Reel.

Well, actually it's a giant scribble, and one more sign that these kids aren't taking Rand very seriously.

In which John Kasich is devoured by an aggressive rug:

It's really not much of a hug.

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

Carly has slipped entirely into fantasy.
