As has been historically true, Americans grow ever sillier as they begin to focus on electing new leadership. This is the point in our democratic process where we struggle to balance our true, inner, personal beliefs and what we would have the rest of our fellow countrymen see of us.
This delicate balancing act has been a longstanding tradition in American politics, and has certainly led to more than a few cliché calls to “pull the curtain back”, or some similar analogous nonsense. Just this week, television host Joe Scarborough went so far as to insinuate that even our elected officials are guilty of this in regard to impeachment.
In keeping with the spirit of this deceit, failed presidential candidate and current Utah Senator Mitt Romney has now admitted to using a phony Twitter account under the name “Pierre Delecto” to monitor and comment on political current events.
Mike Huckabee then ripped into Romney over the childish behavior.
The outburst came during an appearance on Fox & Friends.
“The man’s 72 years old,” Huckabee emphasized. “Having fake Twitter accounts on social media, that’s the work of kids, cowards, couch potatoes and perverts like Carlos Danger. What on Earth does a United States senator do calling himself Pierre Delecto? If he’s got something to say, man up and say it.”
“Let us all realize that this guy is not a team player,” he continued. “He’s still bitter because Donald Trump got elected and he didn’t. He needs to get over it.”
The embarrassing admission by Romney became ever more cringeworthy as Twitter users reviewed Pierre Delecto’s posting history, finding numerous occasions in which the disguised Utah Senator would refer to himself in the third person, in his own defense.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
