House Speaker Paul Ryan reads 'Mean Tweets'

- Following such popular videos on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan dropped a "Mean Tweets" video of his own.

The Wisconsin Republican announced a decision in April to end his 20-year career in politics, saying he did not want his children growing up with a "weekend dad."

Rep. Ryan will step down at the end of his term in January.

Ryan, who has been in the spotlight since running with Mitt Romney in the 2012 Presidential election, and was critical of Donald Trump during the 2016 election, has been criticized by those on both sides of the aisle for his leniency as Speaker with the president.

On Wednesday, Ryan met with Congressional Summer Interns for the Summer Lecture Series. His remarks focused on compromise and civility in politics.

Other politicians have done mean-tweet videos, including former House Speaker John Boehner and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.

Some of the featured tweets included:

"Paul Ryan could be a live-action Disney Villain #WidowsPeak"

"Paul Ryan is proof that you don't need a spine to do P90X"

"Woodchucks eating Paul Ryan's car has given me hope for the future."

"I want to high five Paul Ryan's face with a shovel. Just hard enough to make him see birdies. Hate that smug look."
