People can be mean on the Internet, especially when it comes to politics. But many people probably don't know that even celebrities and politicians sometimes see what's written about them, even when the ire comes from anonymous trolls.

Now we can prove it.

Borrowing from "Jimmy Kimmel Live's" segment that shows celebrities reading horribly nasty tweets about themselves on air, the website Now This News convinced a handful of legislators in Washington to recite unsavory bits of their own Twittery reply feed. 

The result is hilarious.
