Mitt Romney fires back at ‘Mean Tweets’ from Donald Trump supporters

Ouch.Mitt Romney had to know this was coming. After censuring Republican front-runner Donald Trump — he called him a “phony” and a “fraud” — the 2012 Republican presidential candidate received a slew of “mean tweets,” which host Jimmy Kimmel naturally invited him to read during his Tuesday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The first slam came courtesy of Trump himself. “Mitt Romney had his chance and blew it.Lindsay Graham ran, got ZERO, and quit. Why are they now spokesmen against me? Sad!”

“Uh, got zero?” Romney shot back. “The only people I know who ‘got zero’ are the ones who paid $25,000 to be at Trump University. They’re the ones who got zero.”

Romney did concede to one tweet, however. “Mitt Romney = loser,” one Twitter user wrote, to which Romney replied, “That’s true actually. I lost.”

The last jab read, “I’d pay good money to watch Mitt Romney crying in a ball pit at a Chucky Cheese.”

“Something tells me (he) may have had personal experience doing something like that himself,” Romney dodged effortlessly.

Kimmel later asked Romney how much he would pay to persuade Trump to withdraw from the race. Romney explained that he couldn’t put a dollar amount on that, adding, “Donald Trump just needs to get out of the race… let’s make people happy and let’s have a candidate we can be proud of.”

One Response to Mitt Romney fires back at ‘Mean Tweets’ from Donald Trump supporters

    The reluctance of GOP leaders to support Trump is typical of our wish-washy representatives in DC. However, Trump won the Republican nomination not by endorsements from politicians but from endorsements far more important; the American voters. What I don’t understand is why it’s so hard for the media and politicians to understand that the people want change in our government. We’re so sick of nothing getting done and if something does get done it’s not what we wanted. They give away our money like they’re the ones who earned it. Ninety percent of them have never earned a dollar because they’ve never had a job. It’s time we put a limit on the amount of terms Congressman and Senators can hold office. This will eliminate their automatic lifetime paycheck. I think it’s up to the American people to vote on what type of medical insurance they should have. After all they participated in the most undemocratic move this country has ever witnessed when they voted for the American people’s insurance knowing they had different. Where do we start in getting our representatives to do what’s best for America and not their party?
