The tweeted photo of the day features a friendly looking Wisconsin voter wearing a Brewers baseball hat with a “Go F**k Yourself” T-Shirt standing next to a delighted, completely oblivious Paul Ryan.
Twitter went wild for the photo, taken Saturday at a Kiwanis Club Pancake Day fundraiser in Racine, Wisconsin, where the apron-wearing speaker of the House was apparently helping flip pancakes — and pouring coffee, judging by the cups in his pocket and pot in his hand. (He also attended last year’s Pancake Day, showing off his flipping skills in the video above.)
The T-shirt, which reads “‘Repeal and go f**k yourself.’ – GOP,” makes a pointed comment about House Republicans who voted to end health insurance for millions of Americans earlier this week.
The photo, captioned “Couple friends of the pod hanging out this morning,” was posted by @Minnysconsin. The “pod” refers to the political podcast “Pod Save America,” which sells the shirt. Podcast co-host and former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau challenged other listeners to top the stunt.
The Ryan tweet triggered a flood of Twitter high-fives, and may have birthed similar photobomb political plots. Twitter user @Annie_Fox wrote, “That’s two things Ryan didn’t bother to read this week.” Another user noted that the only thing better would be if Ryan had been wearing the shirt.
