Thanks, 2016, for giving grown-ups the choice between watching fights on the playground or making a run for it and hoping the creepy clowns don’t get you.
Things had sunk pretty far already when Sean Hannity picked up on Megyn Kelly’s on-air criticism of his nightly tuck-ins for Donald Trump at his network safe space and moved the awkwardness to Twitter. It wasn’t a good look for either one, but leave it to Harry Reid to drag down the tone even further.
If Trump wants to come down from the penthouse his daddy bought him to lecture us on Nevada, he could at least pronounce it correctly.

Finally, someone’s addressing the issues. That’s quite a lot packed into one tweet that’s supposedly about Trump’s pronunciation, and there likely are 318 million or so Americans in a better position to criticize Trump on how he paid for his pricey real estate.
@SenatorReid where's the burn cream?

Check the medicine cabinet, next to the antiseptic spray and bandages.

@SenatorReid didn't the mob beat your old ass?

A mob of exercise equipment, yes. An elected official is obligated to stay slim and trim or risk leaving himself open to fat-shaming blackmail attempts.
Of course, Reid lives in a condo at the DC Ritz-Carlton (though he did buy it himself). https://t.co/HK7kpJmiTN

Scrimping and saving every step of the way, to boot.

@SenatorReid Says the man who's been sucking off the taxpayers for decades

@SenatorReid Im sure you're broke Harry. Or are you like most career bureaucrats, worth millions of bucks, fat off decades of public cash?
— Matt Taylor (@mattyrm) October 6, 2016
He’s going to leave office dead broke, or at least that’s how he’ll recount it.
@SenatorReid A rich politician is a crook….how did you get so rich Harry?
— Fat Deplorable (@murphylinn) October 6, 2016
@SenatorReid what the hell do you know about Nevada? You've been getting rich living in Washington for the past 40 years!

Trump should probably leave this one alone and apparently has so far; check back around 3 a.m. for the update.

Why start now?
