To Know Trump . . . (Mitt Romney Endorsement Edition)

Donald Trump is to Corporate America what plaid is to Bermuda shorts (Campaign Outsider Analogy pat. pending).

Mitt Romney, by contrast, is khaki.

So how does Trump’s endorsement benefit Romney, besides locking up the comb-over vote?

The big announcement from the Trump Las Vegas Hotel:


When you think about it, the most remarkable (as Mitt might say) aspect of this isn’t Trump’s squishy endorsement of Romney (“He’s not going to allow bad things to continue to happen to this country we all love”).

It’s Romney’s response:

There are some things you just can’t imagine happening in your life. This is one of them. Being in Donald Trump’s magnificent hotel and having his endorsement  is a delight – I’m so honored and pleased to have his endorsement . . .

Given that Romney is 100% irony-deficient, we’re forced to take that statement at face value. Then again, remember what has previously “delighted” the former Massachusetts governor (via New York Times Op-It Girl Maureen Dowd):

Hunting, Dear Sir? Delighted!


Watching Mitt Romney in the Myrtle Beach debate gave me acid flashbacks to Poppy Bush.

Maybe it was when Mittens decorously noted, in front of the raucous, bloodthirsty South Carolina crowd: “When I get invited, I’m delighted to be able to go hunting.”

You know those small varmints Romney said he hunted? That would be Donald Trump’s hair.

    Would Willard be shocked SHOCKED to know gambling is going on in Trump properties in Las Vegas? Drinking too. What is the LDS position on gambling? They’re agin it. Drinking too. and don’t get me started on porn. Trump has profited greatly from the first two; the Marriott chain from all three. OK, Marriott is now removing porn from their hotel rooms now, but that’s because so many people get their porn from the internets and not TV in the rooms.

  2. I’m pretty sure Mitt isn’t khaki — he’s “stone.”
