Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker tried to celebrate National Sandwich Day like everyone else with some tweets.

Celebrating #NationalSandwichDay with my daily ham & cheese sandwich and cranberry juice!

He shared photos of his ham and cheese sandwich on BOTH of his Twitter accounts.

And people responded RUTHLESSLY. "This is the best sandwich you could come up with?" one person asked.

@ScottWalker this is the best sandwich you could come up with?

It made people sad. "Jesus Christ, man, this is insanely depressing."

And affected others personally. "Your sandwich depresses me."

Lots of people commented on the ~style~ of his sandwich. "He cuts it into triangles, LMAO."

"Crusts on because you're macho."

"Did your mom cut the crust off?"

Some discussed the apparent blandness of the lunch."Hey, dude. Take it easy," this person advised, "don't be so wild."

Another person had concern for the governor. "Why would you tweet this? Are you okay?"

@GovWalker why would you tweet this. are you ok

Others were slightly more polite with their criticism. "Sorry," this person began, "but that's one sad-looking sandwich."

@ScottWalker sorry, but that's one sad looking sandwich....

Overall, though, people were BRUTAL. "This is quite possibly the most boring tweet ever."

@GovWalker This is quite possibly the most boring tweet ever.

"Disgusting."

Walker also recently posted a photo of the cranberry juice that accompanied his lunch.

Fun fact, did you know that about 60% of America’s cranberries come from WI?
