Tweets suck. Literally no one wants any one of them ever, but here we always are, reading them

Why, just this week, the president tweeted about a porn star. That fucking sucked, didn’t it? And that didn’t even come close to cracking the shittiest tweets of the week.

There were so, so many worse ones.

Here are the worst political tweets of the week, broken down by the Daily Dot’s politics team, Andrew Wyrich (AW) and David Covucci (DC).

Worst Political Tweets of the Week

1) Matt Schlapp doesn’t know what journalism is

AW: Dear Matt Schlapp, that is exactly what journalists are supposed to do. We really need media literacy education in this country.

DC: Is he the dude who walked out of the WHCD?

AW: One in the same. He wasn’t offended by the “elites mocking all of us” enough to not attend the after party though.

DC: Matt Schlapp then went on CNN after the journalism dinner and said the job of journalists is to not call out the president for lying. Is he … nuts?

AW: He clearly doesn’t know what journalism is.

2) Trump gets a day of the week named after him

AW: RT if you agree, David!

DC: I did. Every day is not happy but every day is Trump.

AW: Upcoming Executive Order: Wednesdays will now be called “Trump Day.”

3) Giuliani faces the Storm

AW: ….owning the right?

DC: Is Fox & Friends owning the right? I guess given how often the “owning the libs” political strategy backfires, it does wind up owning the right.

4) Mike Huckabee solves the Tide Pod challenge

AWTide Pods making the comeback!

DC: That doesn’t make sense. Young people are vulgar, so they love Tide Pods to wash their own mouths with soap? Why would they do that?

AW: But they look like candy, David! This is just the first of many bad Huckabee tweets I suspect we’ll comment on in the future.

DC: We could only do Huckabee tweets.

5) Pray for the GOP after these Twitter burns

AW: You can imagine how quickly this tweet from the GOP was mocked.

DC: He’s definitely thinking about getting a blowie from the woman three rows back, right?
