Ouch. Talk about social media shade. 

As Americans wait to find out the final results of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, some big names in politics attempted to bring a little laughter by reading mean tweets about themselves on the Nov. 4 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Cory Booker, former Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Mayor Mike Bloomberg and Andrew Yang—they all sought the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination but later ended their campaigns—were just a few of the participants.

Warren, for instance, read a post that claimed she's "what happens when Jan Brady grows up," and Sanders' claimed he "seems like the type of guy who would return a single piece of fruit to Walmart and hold up the line for an hour." As for Bloomberg, his message compared his presidential run to "finding out Nickelback is playing the Super Bowl halftime show." He then replied, "I like Nickelback!"

Senator Ted Cruz, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, former Governor John Kasich, former Senator Al Franken and Rep. Adam Schiff joined in on the fun, as well.

As former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci read, "Anthony Scaramucci is what happens when cold lasagna served on a Sopranos DVD makes a wish upon a star to be a real boy." Meanwhile, former Secretary of State John Kerry could barely keep a straight face. "If John Kerry's head were to be carved on a mountain, it would be actual size," he said, joking, "Mount Rushmore here I come!"
