Riffing off of Jimmy Kimmel's popular "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets" series, the folks at NowThisNews decided to corral some politicians and have them do the same. For the most part, the tweets aren't actually that mean, but still, the results are pretty amusing!

Check out the video below to see how Rep. Paul Ryan feels about being called "Satan incarnate," or how Sen. Claire McCaskill reacts to being told she sucks a particularly unpleasant part of a farm animal's anatomy. Sen. Chuck Schumer makes an appearance, too, and seems to thoroughly enjoy himself. Of course he does.
