Remember What Romney Said About Trump? He Was Right! Here’s What He Said

Back on March 3, 2016 Mitt Romney gave a scathing speech in which he outlined why choosingUS-Flag Donald Trump as the Republican candidate would be a very bad idea. Below are some excerpts from that speech that show that, much to our chagrin, Romney was right on the money in his assessment of the qualities and competence of Trump.

1. Donald Trump: “lacks the temperament to be President!”

I am far from the first to conclude that Donald Trump lacks the temperament to be President. After all, this is an individual:

  • who mocked a disabled reporter,
  • who attributed a reporter’s questions to her menstrual cycle,
  • who mocked a brilliant rival who happened to be a woman due to her appearance,
  • who bragged about his marital affairs during the Vietnam War while John McCain, whom he has mocked, was imprisoned and tortured,
  • who laces his public speeches with vulgarity,
  • who says he admires Vladimir Putin,
  • who has called George W. Bush a liar. That is a twisted example of evil trumping good.

2. Donald Trump: “dishonesty is his trademark!”

Dishonesty is Trump’s hallmark:

  • He claimed that he had spoken clearly and boldly against going into Iraq. Wrong, he spoke in favor of invading Iraq.
  • He said he saw thousands of Muslims in New Jersey celebrating 9/11. Wrong, he saw no such thing. He imagined it.

His is not the temperament of a stable, thoughtful leader. His imagination must not be married to real power.

3. Donald Trump: “fails in the basic responsibility of honorable conduct!”

…Think of Donald Trump’s personal qualities, the bullying, the greed, the showing off, the misogyny, the absurd third grade theatrics. We have long referred to him as “The Donald.” He is the only person in America to whom we have added an article before his name. It wasn’t because he had attributes we admired.

Now imagine your children and your grandchildren acting the way he does. Will you welcome that? Haven’t we seen before what happens when people in prominent positions fail the basic responsibility of honorable conduct? We have, and it always injures our families and our country.

4. Donald Trump: “lacks the temperament, stability, and suitability to be President!”

Watch how he responds to my speech today. Will he talk about our policy differences or will he attack me with every imaginable low road insult? This may tell you what you need to know about his temperament, his stability, and his suitability to be President.

5. Donald Trump: “is a con man, a fake!”

There are a number of people who claim that Mr. Trump is a con man, a fake. There is indeed evidence of that. Mr. Trump has changed his positions not just over the years, but over the course of the campaign, and on the Ku Klux Klan, daily for three days in a row.

6. Donald Trump: “is a phony!”

We will only really know if he is the real deal or a phony if he releases his tax returns and the tape of his interview with the New York Times. I predict:

  • that there are more bombshells in his tax returns,
  • that he doesn’t give much if anything to the disabled and to our veterans,
  • that he told the New York Times that his immigration talk is just that: talk and
  • that, despite his promise to do so…over a year ago, he will never ever release his tax returns. Never. Not the returns under audit, not even the returns that are no longer being audited. He has too much to hide.
  • that he will not authorize the Times to release the tapes.

If I’m right, you will have all the proof you need to know that Donald Trump is a phony and attacking me, as he surely will, won’t prove him any less of a phony. It’s entirely in his hands to prove me wrong. All he has to do is to release his back taxes like he promised he would, and let us hear what he said behind closed doors to the New York Times…

7. Donald Trump: “is playing the American public for suckers!”

Here’s what I know.

  1. Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud.
  2. His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University.
  3. He’s playing the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat.
  4. His domestic policies would lead to recession.
  5. His foreign policies would make America and the world less safe.
  6. He has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be President.
  7. His personal qualities would mean that America would cease to be a shining city on a hill.

America has greatness ahead [but Trump] will not make that vision a reality.

2. Trump’s Presidency Is A Blessing In Disguise – Here’s the Surprising Reason Why!

I’d like to sincerely thank Donald Trump for so diligently playing his role in the polarization process that ends up assisting in the Ascension of Consciousness for a kinder and gentler America. We couldn’t have done it without you, Donald. After all, we can’t clean the counters if we never move the cookie jar to see that they’re dirty.


  1. Thank you Lorimer for your statements. I am very tired of these so-called geniuses banging on Trump. I’ve been screaming for the last decade for these guys to get off their ass and do something. They’ve done NOTHING, especially Romney. He blew that election so badly it was difficult to watch. I went Independent 10 years ago and I am shocked by the lackadaisical right and just how much of a bunch of wienies they’ve become. It’s tragic to watch these leaders on the right basically afraid of their own shadow. Well now it’s caught up to them and I really love the way they call us stupid for going with Trump. Romney is a major embarrassment just like the rest of the leaders of the Republican party. They sicken me and may they rot in hell for what they did with our votes.

  2. Another email received about this article:

    David Stockman spent over twenty years on Wall Street as a founding partner of Blackrock then a few years with his own firm. He knows the nonsense of Wall Street and when he takes on Romney’s Bain Capital he knows whereof he speaks (see below – from his March 3rd article entitled “Mitt Romney Is The Real Super-Fraud: Here’s The Proof, Chapter And Verse”).

    “Now that’s a screaming case of the pot calling the kettle black if there ever was one. Mitt Romney has lashed out at The Donald for being a “phony and fraud”, but consider this.During his 16-years at Bain Capital, fully one-fourth or $600 million of the firms cumulative $2.5 billion of profits were scalped from companies which went bankrupt soon after Mitt and his partners got out of town with the loot.”

    This is exactly why I said in my earlier message that he was precisely the wrong person to take on Trump. He is a proven sleaze who has no credibility, especially with the blue collar folks Trump is appealing to and with whom he is most effective.

    Using Romney is actually counter productive.

  3. Below is an email I received on the above article:

    All true…at least essentially correct. But so what?

    Using Mitt Romney to make the case is equally stupid since he is of a class that is separate from the folks to which Trump appeals. In fact he has all kinds of links to the controlling elites both within and outside the Republican party.

    When the elites of both parties, who when push comes to shove in all respects, except cultural and social issues, the masses who have been manipulated forever, including the Evangelical Christians, take their their cue.

    What do I mean? When the important people, the power people, the elites of society come together publicly to take on Trump, it sends the message to the voters, not just Republicans, but everyone who feels ‘used and abused’ by the system, that they, the masses, need to take the opposite position.

    In other words,”if the important folks are universally lined up against Trump, he clearly is the the one for me because those elites definitely do not share or promote my interests.” Each election they tell me what I want to hear based on focus group analyses and then promptly forget me after the election.

    In summary, Romney is correct, but it is dumb strategy on the part of the ruling elites to identify themselves publicly by jointly chastising Trump. They merely make him more acceptable to the people Trump is targeting.

    Remember, that approximately half of the eligible US electorate does not vote. It is to those folks Trump’s populist approach most appeals. I predict this/Romney’s type of public whacking of Trump will bring large numbers of non voters out for Trump.

    Moreover, if the Republican party establishment deflect Trump from the nomination at the Republican convention using various nefarious techniques, that too will make him even more marketable, especially among disaffected and minor Republican voters, but also disenchanted Dems. Without a Republican label he is even more saleable.

    Trump can win and Hillary better be prepared to get whacked by him.
