Some Genius Has Recreated Gerry Adams' Tweets In Microsoft Paint

The leader of Sinn Féin as you've never seen him before.

Posted on

Gerry Adams, the prominent Irish Republican and leader of Sinn Féin, is well known for having a totally bonkers Twitter account.

When not dealing with the domestic political agenda or being arrested by police in relation to an ongoing murder investigation, he can be found trying to win a llama jumper and sharing his every thought on Twitter.

Now an anonymous artist operating as @GA_Illustrated has kindly agreed to let BuzzFeed share their visual interpretations of these tweets. And they're quite something.

So sez I 2 Pres Obama 'may we do a selfie?' 'Sure'sez he. So we did. Only I didnt have phone set right! Buck eejit!!!
