Remember Paul Ryan, that guy who lifts weights in a backward hat? Well, some people must not, because Ryan keeps getting confused for Anthony Weiner, a different man who lifts weights without a shirt on and sometimes takes selfies.

This was quite insulting to Ryan, because Weiner represents a different political party (and also tanked his career by texting photographs of his penis to young women). Ryan would like everyone to be clear that he merely writes terrible budget proposals and wants to defund school lunches.

Reached for comment by Business Insider, Weiner called the idea that anyone would get him mixed up with Ryan "the final insult."
