Ugh. Donald Trump again. Why? Mitt Romney. Blame Romney.
Mitt Romney, who will be the official GOP candidate for President as of today, is throwing a Las Vegas fundraiser with Donald Trump. A man who continues to say out loud that the President was not born in the U.S. Donald Trump is a horrible man. And the Democrats want you to know that Romney associates happily with this horrible man. So they’ve released the clip above, juxtaposing Romney with prior GOP presidential candidate John McCain, who rejected supporters that said such things.
“You know I don’t agree with all the people who support me and my guess is they don’t all agree with everything I believe in,” said Romney. The Dems are framing it as a character issue, however, showing that, once again, Romney will not come out against people who say offensive and outrageous things.
Even Groupon doesn’t want anything to do with Trump.
“Republicans are struggling to understand Romney’s continued association with Trump, who they fear hurts Romney more than he helps, especially among independents,” Buzzfeed writes.
George Will, a conservative columnist, called Trump a “bloviating ignoramus” this past Sunday on This Week. (Trump called Will “overrated.”) Everyone knows it’s for money. But can you sink too low to raise campaign dollars? Yes. Absolutely, yes.
