Mean tweets?

That’s what you get when you combine an unpopular Congress with the ever-trending use of social media.

Now This News has come up with

a Capitol Hill version

of Jimmy Kimmel's hilarious "Mean Tweets" series featuring celebrities.

In the D.C. edition, it’s members of Congress who recite “mean tweets” they’ve received.

You’ll see Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan reading one tweet acknowledging his “pretty blue eyes,” but adding that he is “Satan incarnate.”

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill may steal the show with her tweet.

“You really suck a pig’s ass,” she reads, looking straight into the camera.
