FUNNY: Mitt Romney And Donald Trump Birth Illegitimate Tweets
Just as Mitt Romney was securing the Republican presidential nomination with a win in the Texas primary — and just as the truth sunk in to loyal viewers of The Republican Nominee Show that Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich and Marcus Bachmann may not be returning any time soon with guest appearances — we were confronting something about this election season that we really hate getting used to: boredom.
Enter Donald Trump. Not our first pick for a starring role, but better than sinking deeper into a mid-season slump. In case you haven't heard, the typically flip-flopping Romney has teamed up with The Donald to boost his campaign and has just as quickly distanced himself, due to Trump's leading the charge of the "birther movement," so called for its claims that Barack Obama was not actually born in the U.S. and therefore cannot legitimately serve as president. (OK, someone's been watching too much Game of Thrones!)
In all honesty, any time is a good time to make fun of Trump, whose guest-hosting gig on The View last Friday may win him an Emmy for Orangest TV Personality (sorry Tan Mom, you passed orange on your way to baseball-glove brown in approx. 1997). But enough truth-telling, here are our favorite Trump-inspired tweets from this week:
