For Politicians, Unintentionally Funny is the Best Kind of Funny

Author: #NAMB Guest Author, Current Events/Politics

When politicians don’t have handlers — and even sometimes when they do — they have a tendency to tweet unintentionally funny and/or ridiculous things. And with the millions of users on Twitter, the comments on those tweets (and the reaction on cable news networks) make them into total catastrophes.

Here are some of the best, starting with our (shudders and cries a little) President, Donald Trump.

There’s so much wrong with this tweet. For one, the taco bowl Trump is eating isn’t even made at Trump Tower Grill. Second, the fact that he tweeted this while boasting about wanting to build a wall to keep Mexicans out of the country — while deporting hundreds of thousands of Hispanics from the country — is absurd. Then of course there’s his “I love Hispanics!” finale. Come on, dude.

Up next…

 

Anthony Weiner 

Weiner, who went from being a disgraced New York City congressman to a disgraced candidate for New York City mayor (because of lewd sexts both times), weighed in when Hillary Clinton famously told Donald Trump to delete his twitter account during the race for president.

“Too late for some of us,” Weiner tweeted.

Okay, maybe this doesn’t fit into the “unintentionally funny” descriptor. But coming from Weiner, it really might have been just an admission that he had done himself in. And it was hysterical.

And next…

Hillary Clinton

In 2015, Hillary Clinton’s account retweeted a story — writing “guilty as charged” — that said her campaign was powered by pizza, and that analysis proved it. However, when viewing the retweet on mobile, it said her campaign was powered by…

pizza, anal… 

The word analysis was cut off, giving us one of the most hysterical and ridiculous retweets of all-time.

And finally…

 

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders said lots of great things during his campaign for the democratic presidential nomination. And he did it all with honesty, courage and conviction.

Once, though, he did it from behind a podium that was shaped like a tub of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. And this was the result:

Thank you for that, Bernie.
