Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s poll numbers are sinking rapidly and Politico reported on Wednesday that there is increasing friction between the candidate and the Republican National Committee.
RNC chairman Reince Priebus, however, took to Twitter on Thursday to assure the world that everything between Trump and the RNC is just fine. In fact, Priebus even said he was flying on Trump’s plane down to Texas to campaign events:
Flying to Dallas now with @realDonaldTrump…Reports of discord are pure fiction. Great events lined up all over Texas. Rs will win in Nov!

It didn’t take long for the rest of Twitter to point at Priebus and laugh, however, as the RNC chairman has gained a reputation as the “Baghdad Bob” of the 2016 elections. Here’s a sample of the internet’s best mockery:
