As GOP members of the House of Representatives trip over themselves to turn FBI agent Peter Strzok's hearing into a circus, Twitter let them have it.
"Intermittently listening to the Peter Strzok hearing," HuffPost's Marina Fang tweeted, accompanied by a screenshot from Mad Max: Thunder Road featuring Charlize Theron's Furiosa character with a disgruntled expression as the subtitle describes "men yelling indistinctly."

In another tweet, The Washington Post's Aaron Blake detailed House Republicans' double standard in the Strzok hearings.
"The contrast here is pretty stark," he tweeted. "GOP in one breath threatens Strzok with contempt if he doesn't detail Russia investigation, which is ongoing. Then it says it won't release transcript of Strzok's initial testimony ... because its investigation is ongoing."
