Rick Scott says 'Fire politicians!', twitter wonders if he should be the first one
If there’s one thing that the internet loves, it’s a failure to understand irony. Case in point: Florida Governor Rick Scott proudly announcing plans to fire the politicians. Given that this came from a politician, it received mixed reviews on Twitter.
