Classic pig-headed Romney in action…
Trump-hating Republican Sen. Mitt Romney flat out refused to endorse any presidential candidate last election.
Despite Trump proving his critics wrong during his first term and holding to his promise to Make America Great Again (unlike so many past presidents who threw their campaign promises out the window as soon as they stepped into office), RINO Romney is stuck in the mud and hasn’t changed his mind.
“I don’t think endorsements are worth a thimble of spit,” he said on Friday.
What a thing for a U.S. senator to say.
Especially one who once ran for presidency.
I wonder if Romney thought his endorsement from Trump back in 2012 wasn’t worth “a thimble of spit”?
Take a look at news of Romney’s stiff-necked attitude on Twitter:
Romney's cantankerous comments have spawned a bunch of witty (and true) response tweets from people with common sense who recognize the foolishness of his refusal to endorse the only 2020 candidate for president committed to actually building a better present and future for America.
Not that Trump needs endorsement from a failed presidential candidate whom some regard as no better than a snake-eyed Dem...

Fox News has more details on Romney's comment:
The 2012 Republican presidential nominee, who has not shied away from criticizing Trump, told reporters at his annual E2 Summit in the Utah ski-resort town of Park City that he doesn’t thing endorsements really matter anyway.
"I don't think endorsements are worth a thimble of spit," Romney said.
Romney in 2016 refused to support Trump, famously giving a speech in which he referred to the candidate as a “phony, a fraud." He said he later wrote the name of his wife, Ann, on that ballot.
The Hill also added:
Romney, who was the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, has had a fraught relationship with Trump at times during the latter's political career. In 2016, when Trump won the White House, Romney wrote his wife’s name on his ballot.
The Utah Republican said Friday it’s still too early to issue any official endorsements, though he said while “it’s not a sure thing” he believes Trump is likely to win reelection in 2020 in part due to a strong economy.
Romney has voiced support for some of Trump’s policies, including his sweeping tax cut plan in 2017 and Supreme Court nominations, though the Utah Republican has emerged as a fierce critic of the president's rhetoric and trade policies.
