Campaign 2016's Silly Season: A Weekly Tweet Roundup Feb. 26

Posted By on Fri, Feb 26, 2016 at 2:20 PM

We slog through the Twitter streams of the 2016 Presidential candidates and give you a weekly roundup of the more entertaining ones.  

Another head-spinning week, as Trump racked up victories in South Carolina and Nevada (and every other time and place ever according to him), and America was treated to another free-for-all "debate." (Best line of the night: Ben Carson pondering the "fruit salad of their lives," when asked about potential Supreme Court picks.)


And we lost Jeb(!). He sent out this sad farewell tweet. Not even a rousing exclamation point see us off.

I know I'll miss his truly terrible Twitter optics, like this one him posing awkwardly and alone in a green screen.

The word-nerd part of me loves this: Used like a GOAT, fired like a DOG.



Kasich gives some answers, including "yes" and "nope."



Clinton shamelessly co-opts this viral moment, and also misses the point of it all.


The Sanders playlist expands: Killer Mike, Red Hot Chili Peppers, now Woody Guthrie.


Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney jumped in the fray, using some of that fancy-person talk that helped torpedo his 2012 campaign.


Marco Rubio picked up endorsements, including highly coveted ones from wrestler Kurt Angle, Mr. Proud to Be an American Lee Greenwood and "the other Wahlberg."
