Is there a more useless politician than Mitt Romney? Not only is he a massive snake in the Republican Party, but he also apparently is so sensitive to criticism and maintaining his image that he had a burner account for years, with tweets all either defending something he was doing, praising himself, or attacking Trump (which he does personally anyway).
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) recently revealed that he had a “lurker” Twitter account to The Atlantic McKay Coppins, though he did not disclose what the name of the account actually was. However, he gave them enough information about the account for them to discover what it was. His now-not-so-secret burner account is called Pierre Delecto, with the handle “@qaws9876”. Not sure what that’s supposed to mean, but when asked about it, Romney confirmed it by saying “C’est moi”, which is French for “it’s me.”
Of course, scorn and ridicule are some of what Romney received as a result. The guy is too worried about his own image, wherein he faults Donald Trump for tweeting too much and engaging in pointless Twitter debates with people, and yet does the exact same thing with a burner account.
Now, the reason I call it a “burner” account is because this is sometimes used when it comes to other celebrities, namely sports figures, when they use accounts other than their official ones to defend themselves or to attack someone else. People like former Philadelphia 76ers General Manager Bryan Colangelo and Brooklyn Nets superstar forward Kevin Durant have all been found to have used burner accounts for various reasons, though often for some of the same reasons as Romney does.
However, there is a difference between a sports star using a burner account and a 72-YEAR-OLD SITTING UNITED STATES SENATOR USING A BURNER ACCOUNT. Dumb as it may have been, Durant’s burner accounts (yes, plural) aren’t really a big deal because the guy is considerably younger and more naïve. But what excuse does Romney have?
The guy is less than a year younger than Trump and yet has the mental capacity of a child. And I honestly mean that. You have to be fundamentally dumb to side with the people and party who destroyed you in 2012 just because you have a personal vendetta against the Republican president.
You have to be stupid to think you can honestly primary Donald Trump and actually expect to win. Anthony Scaramucci has said that he believes Trump “will not be the [Republican] nominee come November.” This guy also has a personal vendetta against Trump for having fired him (and likely other reasons) but he’s an idiot for actually expecting this.
Similarly, with reports saying Romney was asking other Republicans about primarying Trump, he falls into a similar category of stupidity as a result.
But it’s not just stupidity; it’s hypocrisy. Many people have attacked Trump for being on Twitter so much and for engaging in pointless and needless arguments with other people, whether they be politicians or even celebrities who hate his guts. Romney is one of them, but he’s apparently been doing this LONG BEFORE Trump even showed up.
“Pierre Delecto”’s Twitter account was created in July of 2011, only one month after Romney announced he would be running for president.
Among Pierre’s tweets, at least recently, we find tweets replying to supposed conservative journalist Jennifer Rubin saying Romney is spineless because he won’t confront Trump by replying: “Jennifer, you need to take a breath. Maybe you can then acknowledge the people who agree with you in large measure even if not in every measure.”
In other words, he’s telling her: “Hey, don’t be mean to me because we are on the same side on this issue.” Only he’s too scared to use his actual account to say that because he has an image of a morally and intellectually superior political prince who finds such confrontation to be beneath someone of his stature.
He’s a fool and he doesn’t even know it.
And people certainly aren’t defending him for this either. Even former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee said having a fake Twitter account for this reason is “the work of kids, cowards, couch potatoes and perverts like Carlos Danger.”
I wholeheartedly agree. Romney is like a 14-year-old girl. He won’t directly fight with someone outright, but will talk trash about them in secret or behind their backs, trying to ruin the reputations of the people they hate. Teenage girls can be vindictive like that (not that I would personally know, being a guy) and that’s what Romney is acting like. He has the mind of a child.
He doesn’t have the spine to directly stand up to anyone or do much to defend himself, so he sets up fake Twitter accounts to do it in total obscurity. Unfortunately, he made Pierre’s account private, but I wish I could’ve seen what he said when Harry Reid said he put his dog on top of his car during a road-trip or when he was accused of not caring about an employee’s wife dying of cancer or when the whole “binders full of women” fiasco occurred.
The guy is a total coward and is the face of the Republican Never Trump movement. I’d say it’s a great fit.
“Terrors frighten him on every side, and chase him at his heels.”
