Mitt Romney hypocritically condemns Donald Trump
Mitt Romney held a press conference earlier this week, the purpose of which seemed to be condemning Donald Trump. "Let me put it plainly," he said. "If we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished." Romney went on to call Trump a "con man," "fraud," "a phony," and "fake." All of which are true about Trump. However, let's take a moment to consider the source of this criticism. Mitt Romney ran an entire presidential campaign centered around the idea that our economy was failing, and we needed a smart business man to turn things around. Interesting coming from a man whose company specialized in bankrupting otherwise profitable businesses, and profiting in the process. Which is exactly what Bain Capital did. Interesting that Romney also criticized Trump for having owned businesses that went bankrupt. He probably had to check to make sure Bain Capital wasn't behind any of those bankruptcies before making that statement! But, again, Mr. Romney was not wrong when calling Trump a bad business man. We ARE talking about a man who thought it would be a good business decision to sell steaks exclusively at the sharper image. Surprisingly, it didn't work out quite as well as Mr.Trump had planned. Trump responded predictably by calling Romney's comments "irrelevant," and going on to say that Mr. Romney was so desperate for his endorsement that he would have "gotten down on his knees." While this comment is shocking coming from a Republican presidential candidate (never mind the fore runner), what can we expect from Mr. Trump at this point? This is the same man who labeled Mexicans as rapists, insulted Carly Fiorina's face, and said that Jon McCain was "not a war hero" since he was captured. Although, having the image of Mitt Romney performing felatio on Donald Trump shoved into your head may just be too much for some. Nobody deserves having their brain raped in such a way. However, despite all these crude comments and seemingly no knowledge of foreign policy, Donald Trump still has a commanding lead in the Republican polls and the most delegates. It looks like he will be our Republican nominee for president. So what does that say about Republican voters? This is who they want to lead us? A fake, phony, immature man with a history of failed business ventures and an inability to censor his crude mouth? Everyone thought it was a joke when his run began, but here we are. Now there's even talk of the Republicans trying to block him from the nomination. However, this could backfire as Trump supporters could then vote Democrat out of protest. Is Donald Trump the end of the Republican party as we know it? With all the hypocricy and lies on the right, one can only hope so.
