So of course Hillary Clinton‘s big campaign speech at Roosevelt Island was going to draw the best and worst Twitter had to offer on Saturday. Most were heavily politicized, partisan and not really worth the time. Many others, however, were downright wonderful — intentional and otherwise.
Here’s some of our favorites from across the political spectrum, including a smattering of sarcasm:

But let’s be honest, everyone was thinking the same thing — when would Hillary just break out her rendition of “Domi Arigato, Clinton Roboto”?
Hillary Clinton sounds like a robot. — Tobe (@Elu_Isi) June 13, 2015
Really, did the Clinton Foundation spend that forgotten $134M on a Hillary robot?
