Vulgarian Donald Trump Responds to Romney; Gets Personal [VIDEO]

Bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump responded to 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s scathing speech on Thursday, a speech in which Romney invoked Reagan’s 1964,”A Time for Choosing,” and called the real estate mogul a “phony” while accusing him of waffling on disavowing former KKK grand wizard David Duke’s support.

Romney hit Trump on issues like anti-free trade tariffs, taxes, entitlements and debt reduction, as well as for being vague or “flimsy,” as Romney put it, on policy positions while flip-flopping recently and frequently on several key issues.

Romney also slammed Trump for “lacing his speeches with vulgarities,” and ironically, as Romney predicted, Trump responded with what could easily be interpreted as a vulgar comment — an attempt to ridicule Romney’s criticisms without having to discuss specific policy issues.

“Mitt is a failed candidate,” Trump began, saying that Romney was a “failed candidate,” and expressed how disappointed he was in the outcome of the 2012 election.

“He was begging for my endorsement,” Trump claimed. “I could have said, ‘Mitt, drop to your knees — he would have dropped to his knees,” Trump said.
