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.

Plenty has happened since. We lost two of our governor candidates: Smart-Guy Glasses Rick Perry and Harleys-and-Hamburgers-Lover Scott Walker. Both exits spurred a flurry of NICE tweets from the 14 remaining GOP competitors.

Except for Bobby Jindal, who's turned into the campaign's Mean Girl, forever dispensing insults, like this freestyle jab at Trump's friendly farewell.

And so we bid a fond farewell to The Great Wisconsin Hope Scott Walker, who, given the amount of fast-food stops he tweeted, might be healthier off the campaign trail. The day before he quit, he tweeted this prophetic photo.
