Donald Trump just can’t resist making a complete ass out of himself. Lately, if he hasn’t been taking to Twitter to throw a massive hissy fit over the Mueller report, he’s been posting bizarre nonsense to distract the public from the fact that he’s guilty as hell and his cover-up is falling apart right under his nose.
This evening it seems he chose the latter when he posted a weird and uncomfortable video to his Twitter account meant to attack Senator Mitt Romney.
He captioned the video, “If @MittRomney spent the same energy fighting Barack Obama as he does fighting Donald Trump, he could have won the race (maybe)!”

This Trump Twitter tantrum comes in the wake of Romney’s pretty unflattering opinion of Donald, the Trump administration, and the information contained in the redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report that was released on Thursday.
Romney sent out a statement via Twitter yesterday expressing his harsh criticism of the president.
“I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including our president,” Romney’s statement read. “Reading the report is a sobering revelation of how far we have strayed from the aspirations and principles of the founders.”

Of course, Mitt ran against Obama as the Republican party’s nominee back in 2012 but ultimately lost the election. Now, it seems that Trump found this to be the perfect opportunity to not only attack and bully someone that dared to defy him, but also throw his favorite scapegoat under the bus once again by attacking his forerunner, Barack Obama — all while, of course, singing his own praises.
Also, it seems that he thought it’d be cool to refer to himself in the third person — which is always just awkward as hell.
He doesn’t seem to understand that Romney’s statement wasn’t even “fighting” him, it was simply acknowledging the truth — something Donald Trump definitely needs a lesson in.
