Terry McAuliffe was probably thinking his July 4th Everyman routine wasn’t terrible, and whatever family member or intern shot it for him was probably just so happy they were able to help him look hip and cool on Twitter. However, while not the worst we’ve seen when it comes to grilling tweets, it was still horrifying.

Cal Cunningham, who ran for the U.S. Senate in North Carolina, famously posted a photo of himself standing next to a grill that backfired tremendously.

Also purchased just for this video is whatever the hell spatula that is he’s holding. I have never seen that before, and I spent hours looking all over the Internet. Maybe I missed it, but it looks like an inefficient
