    25 "The Politician" Tweets And Tumblr Posts For Anyone That Loves River Barkley

    And I'm not alone. Here are some of the best tweets and tumblr posts about River and David:

    #DavidCorenswet is like a cross between Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill in #ThePolitician, but better. I just thought it was important you all knew that.
