Mitt Romney just ripped on Donald Trump big time — and celebs are loving it! He totally slammed Trump in a speech about the 2016 election by declaring that the presidential candidate is a ‘phony,’ which made anti-Trump stars go crazy on Twitter. See the tweets below!
Thanks to Mitt Romney, we now know which celebs won’t be voting for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election! After the 68-year-old politician expressed his disgust with the 69-year-old GOP candidate, Twitter blew up over Mitt’s strongly opinionated speech. While some people didn’t approve, Josh Gad and Montel Williams were amongst those who applauded Mitt!
Mitt held nothing back in his rant against Trump, calling him out for having faulty ideas and policies that would only result in a less safe or prosperous America. “He has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president,” Mitt sternly stated. “And his personal qualities would mean that America would cease to be a shining city on a hill.” Watch the whole speech here!
Yikes, Mitt really went hard! Not only did Mitt suggest that Republicans shouldn’t pick Trump as their candidate, but he mocked all of the things Trump has put his name on over the years — even declaring “his promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University”! Although some of Mitt’s statements were quite harsh, quite a few celebs totally loved it!

We should remember Mitt Romney is largely self made in business… His success wasn’t predicated on inheritance…

Mitt Romney went in so hard on Donald Trump today that I threw a white towel at my TV to stop the fight.

I tell ya, I think a hell of a lot higher of Mitt Romney now. People that stay true to their principles rather than falling in line are rare

Of course, Donald wasn’t going to stay quiet while his fellow Republican bashed him. Excerpts of Mitt’s speech were leaked just before his speech, and Trump quickly fired back!
“Looks like two-time failed candidate Mitt Romney is going to be telling Republicans how to get elected. Not a good messenger!” he wrote on Twitter. “Failed candidate Mitt Romney, who ran one of the worst races in presidential history, is working the establishment to bury a big “R” win!”
With eight months remaining before election day in November, surely more politicians and celebs will voice their disapproval for Trump. But he has been dominating polls, so it’s looking more and more likely that Donald will be the Republican candidate. If that is the case, it’ll certainly be interesting to see what Mitt and his supporters have to say!
