Happy Birthday, George Washington! You're looking smashing for 285 years old. On Monday, millions of Americans have the day off in recognition of our nation's first leader for Presidents Day — so of course that means that there are millions of Americans tweeting up a storm on Twitter. Of course #PresidentsDay is trending, and there are a ton of funny tweets on Presidents Day — but so are plenty of other hashtags with varying degrees of political commentary to layer on top of the federal holiday.
But what would our Founding Fathers have to say about social media? Besides something along the lines of "What are these magical printing machines upon which the people write?!" they would probably be blown away with the immediacy of how Americans can talk to each other, as well as just how outspoken us former colonists can actually be. I guarantee you they'd be just as enamored with the #SaltBae and Biden Bro memes as we have been — but I'm sure they'd be terribly confused about Sad Pepe. Hell, I'm still confused about Sad Pepe.
Thank goodness our country was founded on the principles of freedom of speech and the press, because there is a lot of hilariously deft political commentary on Twitter — God Bless America, am I right? Here is a round up of some of the funniest Presidents Day tweets in the Twitterverse on Monday.
