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.

This week saw another GOP contender drop out — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal packed it in. The campaign has been rough on governors — we've already lost Texas' Rick Perry and Wisconsin's Scott Walker. There are still four current or former governors left — John Kasich, Jeb(!) Bush, George Pataki and Chris Christie — and so far none of them have been electrifying the electorate.

Most of the GOP candidates went full froth after last week's Paris attacks — screaming for banning Syrian refugees, ramping up the military in Middle East or blaming Obama for everything. Among them, give Rick Santorum points for crafting a not-so-funny zinger that rips on Obama's foreign policy and Bill Clinton's decades-old sexcapades.
