Ahead of General Election, Politicians Read Mean Tweets About Themselves

StoryfulNews Published September 16, 2017

Rumble Ahead of the general election in New Zealand on September 23, politicians in the country appeared in a video to read mean tweets about themselves, featuring MPs from both sides of the political spectrum, including Prime Minister Bill English. Peter Dunne was described as a “chinless wonder,” while Green Party leader James Shaw was told to “fuck off and be stupid in private”, and Prime Minister Bill English read a tweet suggesting he has bad breath, which he promptly refuted. Taking its cue from a similar feature on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the video was produced by the University of Auckland’s Public Policy Club, a student group interested in politics.
