“Because my kids don’t think of me as an emoji guy, I go crazy on emojis,” Speaker Paul Ryan said in a video celebrating #WorldEmojiDay on Monday.
Yes, America. While you are biting your nails over the GOP’s secretive health care reform bill, Speaker Ryan tried to relate to the youth of our country and appear as a #fun family man through his use of emoji.
It’s OK, though. 2017 has been a slow year for the United States government. There isn’t really much going on, and everyone is very happy with the current state of affairs.
Naturally, Twitter took the opportunity to roast Ryan, using text, emoji, and GIFs. (It is currently unclear if Ryan is also a GIF guy.) Mostly people used the opportunity to tell Ryan how much they hate the GOP health care bill, but the poop emoji was also very popular.
Here’s an emoji for you, Speaker Ryan: you’re going to get 🔥’ed by @pnehlen in 2018!
