Ohio Representative Tim Ryan had enough of Donald Trump's State of the Union, claiming to have walked out during the speech.
But Ryan took things a step too far in the world of wrestling social media, saying the State of the Union was "all fake" and "like watching professional wrestling"
I just walked out of the #StateOfTheUnion. I’ve had enough. It’s like watching professional wrestling. It’s all fake.— Congressman Tim Ryan (@RepTimRyan) February 5, 2020
Trump is a member of the WWE Hall of Fame.
As you would expect, pro wrestlers weren't too thrilled with Ryan calling their sport "fake."
If this guy thinks political twitter is bad, he obviously hasn’t felt the wrath of Wrestling twitter yet. https://t.co/a5HRh0ZOYJ— Kamille (@kamillebrick) February 5, 2020
We aren’t fake. TRUMP IS. We don’t deserve to be lumped into his category. TRUMP= unpredictable and FAKE. WRESTLING= predetermined and physically REAL. We are the escape from this reality https://t.co/cEcxmlXGCw— Gail Kim-Irvine (@gailkimITSME) February 5, 2020
