House Speaker Paul Ryan, thou hast been trolled.
During a public appearance at a Kiwanis Club event in his home state of Wisconsin, Ryan apparently agreed to a photo request that didn’t quite go the way he’d hoped. Here’s a pro tip for any current or aspiring politicians out there: When somebody wearing a jacket or a hoodie asks you for a photo, you might want to make sure you’re not about to fall for a T-shirt troll.
In this case, the young man photographed next to Ryan opened his hoodie (presumably moments before the photo was taken) to reveal a shirt bearing the words “Repeal and go fuck yourself.” The shirt itself is merchandise from the folks at Pod Save America, which is just one of the reasons it’s brought such delight to the podcast’s hosts, ex-Obama administration alumni Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Tommy Vietor, and Dan Pfieffer. Another, of course, is that this embarrassing image will now live on for eternity.
Needless to say, for many Democrats and progressives, the sight of Ryan—who was instrumental in getting the American Healthcare Act passed in the House on Thursday—getting trolled by a very pointed message is a light bit of fun at the end of a very taxing week.
