Posted: Updated:

By now we've learned that people write some pretty brutal tweets about celebrities. And thanks to Jimmy Kimmel, we've also learned that it's pretty hilarious to watch celebrities read those mean tweets about themselves.

So why not try the same concept on politicians?

Now This News teamed up with the Today Show to get Paul Ryan, Chuck Schumer and other members of Congress to read some of the meanest tweets about themselves that Twitter had to offer.

Watch the video above if only to see Paul Ryan actually call himself "Satan incarnate". You won't be sorry.
