Mitt Romney has had a one-track mind for a very long time.
So what has he said about the US President in 2016 alone?
A phony and a fraud. He said Trump was not fit for office and was guaranteeing a Hillary Clinton win. He should never get the nomination. He said he is low energy. He does not like Trump, and said he is repulsed by him. He has thought of every excuse under the sun.
It’s not news.
Mitt Romney: The president shapes the public character of the nation. Trump’s character falls short.
Trump had no problem reminding people that Romney is not spewing anything new.
And easily creating an interesting narrative:
"Would much prefer that Mitt focus on Border Security and so many other things where he can be helpful. I won big, and he didn't. He should be happy for all Republicans. Be a TEAM player & WIN!"
It is a lull, and when that happens, we have a hamster wheel and a vortex where no one seems to have any new ideas, and hope one of the old ones that fell flat the last hundred times gains something resembling traction...
