Mitt Romney, who has been repeatedly and alarmingly attempting to shed his humorless droid persona in a limp bid to #StopTrump, reportedly joked (!) at the National Republican Congressional Committee’s annual dinner about Donald Trump’s various “foreign” wives.

“Donald Trump has had several foreign wives,” Romney said, referring to our good friend Ivana Trump, of Czechoslovakia, and Melania Trump, from Slovenia. “It turns out that there really are jobs Americans won’t do.”


(When confronted with the fact that he appears to rely heavily on foreign workers at his Mar-a-Lago estate and elsewhere, the rabidly anti-immigrant Trump has claimed that “getting help in Palm Beach during the season is almost impossible,” and that the local workers who applied “weren’t qualified.”)

Of course, this is Mitt Romney, and his sick nasty burn has been around for a while (he also appears to have said it before himself); the joke first surfaced on Raw Story’s Eric Kleefeld’s Twitter in September 2015, where it was then tweeted again by a bunch of people who pretended they had come up with it, and it’s possible that a Romney aide literally saw it on a hardware store sign.

Anyway, what I’m trying to say is: good for Mitt, and also, nothing means anything and life is a desolate whirlpool.
