It’s been a big, historic week, you guys. While we were all busy being distracted by the final primary elections, someone gathered up all the politicians and clearly held some sort of internet tutorial. And oh boy did it work. Suddenly, and all at once, all the grown-ups’ Twitter games are solidly on point.
It obviously started with Hillary Clinton running out of fucks to give.

If you’re not familiar with Twitter slams, by the way, here’s a nice little primer on this particular burn.
It’s basically the tweet equivalent of
Next, after being called “Pocahontas”
one a BUNCH too many times, she seconded Clinton’s call for Trump’s self-deletion.
No, seriously — Delete your account. https://t.co/O1u7oc0jAR— Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) June 10, 2016
(This, by the way, was in response to Trump saying Warren has a “nasty mouth,” a disgusting choice of words and a ludicrous claim for Trump to be making about ANYONE.)
The best politician tweet, though, came in response to CBS News’ Will Rahn.
Tbh we should all delete our accounts.— Will Rahn (@willrahn) June 9, 2016
Too late for some of us. https://t.co/NgyzWsP9tN— (((Anthony Weiner))) (@anthonyweiner) June 9, 2016
Now, I’m sure at least the vast majority of these politicians don’t do their own tweeting, but things like this do NOT get sent out without approval (or subsequent firings), so I think it’s right to credit them directly for this masterful tweeting.
Well done, all.
