2016 Election: Shade Olympics Medal Ceremony
You laughed. You cried. You dry heaved. And then you logged into Twitter, and laughed some more.
The 2016 Presidential Election took mudslinging on Twitter to Olympic levels, with everyone from the President-Elect himself to Professor Snape joining in.
But Crowdbabble, didn’t the election end a month ago?
The election aftermath is far from over on social media. With @realdonaldtrump tweeting more than ever, Twitter’s olympic mudslingers did their best work after November 8.
Here are Twitter’s gold medal shade throwers from the 2016 Election.
