After receiving Donald Trump’s endorsement in 2012, the Republican Party’s sad ex-boyfriend Mitt Romney apparently has no intention of returning the favor.
“I see way too much demagoguery and populism on both sides of the aisle,” said Romney at a Washington dinner gala Thursday night. “I don’t intend on supporting either of the major party candidates at this point.”
According to The Washington Examiner, Romney explained that he was “dismayed” by the current state of American politics and wished that voters had “better choices” in the upcoming election:
I don’t know what happens when we elect somebody to the White House what they’ll do as opposed to what they’re saying, but I certainly think this is a critical time for freedom, a critical time for America. I think it happens to be an inflection point in our history as we go through this dramatic change economically and militarily, socially, all those things … And I happen to think that the person who is leading the nation has an enormous and disproportionate impact on the course of the world, so I am dismayed at where we are now, I wish we had better choices, and I keep hoping that somehow things will get better, and I just don’t see an easy answer from where we are.
“No one,” it seems, is quickly becoming the old Grand Old Party’s favorite candidate for president.
