"Celebrities Read Mean Tweets" is an unstoppable machine at this point, thanks in large part to Jimmy Kimmel. Now, that same format has been borrowed for the purposes of the 2015 Radio & Television Correspondents' Association Dinner.

Speaker John Boehner, Senator Bernie Sanders, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Congressman Kevin McCarthy all took turns reading some mean tweets in their own spin on the viral sensation.

Highlights include: Boehner smiling without his face breaking and Pelosi implying that Boehner looks more like a tub of orange sherbet than she does.
