The year in politics, explained in 24 powerful tweets

BY EMILY CAHN
This year in politics was largely dominated by the 2016 presidential election and its massive field of candidates.

But it was also peppered with historic court decisions, landmark speeches, the rise of new world leaders and tragic terrorist attacks.

Much of that story can be told through Twitter, which politicians and world leaders are increasingly using to communicate directly with constituencies — without the media's lens. Here are some of the top political tweets of the year.

(Did we miss any big ones? Let us know in the comments.)

@RealDonaldTrump

It’s hard to choose just one tweet that epitomizes the bombastic businessman.

But the billionaire — and his Twitter feed — has sucked up much of the media coverage of the impending U.S. presidential election so far.

And after looking at Trump's antagonistic and politically incorrect missives on Twitter, it’s clear why

Whether it was his feuds with Fox News' Megyn Kelly...

Every poll, Time, Drudge, Slate and others, said I won both debates - but heard Megyn Kelly had her two puppets say bad stuff. I don't watch

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 16, 2015

or Jeb Bush...

The last thing our country needs is another BUSH! Dumb as a rock!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 18, 2015

or Ben Carson...

With Ben Carson wanting to hit his mother on head with a hammer, stab a friend and Pyramids built for grain storage - don't people get it?

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 6, 2015

Trump sure knows how to use Twitter to get attention.

Vaccination fears

In 2015, concern that vaccinations could cause autism led to growth in the anti-vaccination movement, despite science that proves otherwise.

The discussion over vaccines even had its moment in the presidential arena.

Hillary Clinton attempted to debunk the link between autism and vaccines in one of her most-retweeted tweets of the year:

The science is clear: The earth is round, the sky is blue, and #vaccineswork. Let's protect all our kids. #GrandmothersKnowBest

— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) February 3, 2015

Israeli elections spill into the halls of Congress

When now-former Speaker John Boehner invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to deliver an address to a joint session of Congress — without consulting President Barack Obama — it set off a firestorm in the halls of the Capitol.

Many Democrats protested the speech, saying Netanyahu was undermining Obama.

Boehner and Netanyahu said the speech was meant to inform Congress of their issues with the Iranian nuclear deal before the body voted on it this fall.

Netanyahu's tweet defending his visit was among his most popular of the year.

I am going to the United States not because I seek a confrontation with the President, but to speak up for very survival of my country.

— Benjamin Netanyahu (@netanyahu) February 10, 2015

POTUS gets a Twitter handle

After six years in the White House, Obama finally got his own Twitter handle in 2015 — an official @POTUS account that will be passed down to future Oval Office occupants.

Obama's first tweet from the account got hundreds of thousands of retweets.

Hello, Twitter! It's Barack. Really! Six years in, they're finally giving me my own account.

— President Obama (@POTUS) May 18, 2015

But it was an exchange with former President Bill Clinton that got the most attention, when the 42nd president asked if the handle would be passed down "for a friend." (Cough, Hillary, cough.)

Welcome to @Twitter, @POTUS! One question: Does that username stay with the office? #askingforafriend

— Bill Clinton (@billclinton) May 18, 2015

Obama's quip in return was equally as coy.

Good question, @billclinton. The handle comes with the house. Know anyone interested in @FLOTUS?

— President Obama (@POTUS) May 18, 2015

Pope wades into the politics of climate change

It is often said you should never mix politics and religion.

But in 2015, Pope Francis did just that, stressing the need to address climate change in his travels across the globe — including an historic visit to the U.S.

Throughout the year, the Pontifex said climate change was a problem that would greatly impact the poor in poor nations, and called for action.

This tweet was a particularly forceful reminder of his position.

The earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth.

— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) June 18, 2015

Confederate flag falls in South Carolina

A movement to remove the Confederate flag from the grounds of the South Carolina capital grew this year after a gunman opened fire on a black church in Charleston in hopes of starting a race war.

The suspected shooter, Dylann Storm Roof, was seen in a Facebook photo wearing a jacket with two flags — one representing Rhodesia and the other apartheid South Africa — which came to symbolize Roof's support of racism and slavery.

The movement to remove the Confederate flag in South Carolina got a big boost when 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney tweeted his support to take it down.

Take down the #ConfederateFlag at the SC Capitol. To many, it is a symbol of racial hatred. Remove it now to honor #Charleston victims.

— Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) June 20, 2015

The South Carolina state legislature eventually voted to remove the flag from the capital grounds, an outcome praised by South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

July 4th is just around the corner. It will be fitting that our state Capitol will soon fly the flags of our country & state, and no others.

— Nikki Haley (@nikkihaley) June 22, 2015

Supreme Court strikes down gay marriage ban

In an historic 5-4 ruling, the Supreme Court struck down a ban on same-sex marriage — ending a decades-long fight in the LGBT community.

As public support for same-sex marriage grew, many brands got in on the celebration of marriage, using the hashtags #LoveWins and #LoveIsLove.

— AT&T (@ATT) June 26, 2015

Obama's tweet on the landmark ruling was also one of his most popular of the year.

Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else. #LoveWins

— President Obama (@POTUS) June 26, 2015

U.S. re-opens its embassy in Cuba

In yet another historic moment in 2015, the United States and Cuba re-opened embassies in one another's country for the first time since a trade embargo was set in place in the 1960s.

The move allowed Secretary of State John Kerry to visit the country, the first secretary of state to step foot in Cuba since Franklin Roosevelt was president.

The decision was not met with universal approval. Presidential candidate and Sen. Marco Rubio, the child of Cuban immigrants, has been a vocal opponent of normalized relations with Cuba.

My goal is a free Cuba. Lifting the embargo with no meaningful reforms will only strengthen Castro regime

— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) July 6, 2015

But Kerry marked the occasion with this tweet celebrating the newfound relationship between the two nations.

Pleased to be in #Havana for historic day @USEmbCuba. Incredible: last time #SecState visited #Cuba, FDR was @POTUS. pic.twitter.com/URedAaDpZs

— John Kerry (@JohnKerry) August 14, 2015

Ahmed and the clock

When 14-year-old Muslim student Ahmed Mohamed was arrested at his Texas high school after bringing in a homemade alarm clock that a teacher mistakenly thought was a bomb, it set off a massive discussion about racial profiling in America.

Tech innovators and celebrities alike praised Ahmed for his creativity, including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and music artist Pharell Williams.

Ahmed, it's innovative, curious, bright minds like yours who move humanity forward. You are our future. Keep inventing! #IStandWithAhmed

— Pharrell Williams (@Pharrell) September 16, 2015

And Obama's tweet praising Ahmed garnered more than 400,000 retweets.

Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It's what makes America great.

— President Obama (@POTUS) September 16, 2015

Jeb Bush admits to smoking pot

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush admitted during a GOP debate in September that he smoked pot 40 years ago — joining the club of politicians who experimented with the drug in their youth.

Bush's admission led to this.

Sorry Mom

— Jeb Bush (@JebBush) September 17, 2015

Sanders starts a political revolution

When 2015 began, many thought Hillary Clinton would have a clear path to the Democratic presidential nomination.

And while she's still the overwhelming favorite, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' campaign has gained more traction than anyone could have imagined when he launched his campaign this spring.

This widely retweeted tweet, marking Back to the Future Day, is proof of his popular appeal in the race.

Tell me, future boy, who's President of the United States in 2017?
"Bernie Sanders."
Bernie Sanders?! From Vermont? pic.twitter.com/saXRY3aguV

— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) October 21, 2015

Whoops...

Speaking of Hillary Clinton, this badly cut-off tweet led to one of the lighter moments of her 2016 presidential run so far.

Paris attacks

The world paused in November, when a series of coordinated terrorist attacks rocked Paris and sent a chilling reminder to the world that terror could strike anytime and anywhere.

The attacks heightened fears that the Islamic State (ISIS) is growing in power, and spilled over into the presidential contest in 2016.

French President François Hollande has vowed to help in the fight to defeat ISIS. This tweet, one of Hollande's most popular of the year, roughly translates to "we will defeat terrorists."

Face à l'effroi, il y a une Nation qui sait se défendre, sait mobiliser ses forces et, une fois encore, saura vaincre les terroristes.

— François Hollande (@fhollande) November 13, 2015

Syrian refugees

After the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, California, fear of bringing Syrian refugees into the U.S. began to hit a peak.

Many politicians proposed bans on letting refugees from Syria — where ISIS has claimed much territory — into the U.S., despite the humanitarian crisis Syrians face at home.

Yet newly minted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau broke from the pack, vowing to accept 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of the year — a number it will double by the end of 2016.

Welcome to Canada. pic.twitter.com/xEOn44GjJF

Star Wars mania

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a cultural phenomenon in 2015, grossing hundreds of millions in its opening weekend and setting box office records around the globe.

Politicians didn't want to be left out of the craze.

This Star Wars-related tweet was one of First Lady Michelle Obama's most retweeted of the year.

Welcome to the @WhiteHouse, R2-D2. #StarWars pic.twitter.com/LVJZereiUh
