Romney Slams Trump Surrogates for Attending Trial

“I think it’s a little demeaning to show up in front of the courthouse — and particularly one where we’re talking about an allegation of paying a porn star. And it’s really, really very difficult to watch. … There’s a level of dignity and decorum that you expect the people who are running for the highest station in the land, and going out and prostrating themselves in front of the public to try and, apparently, curry favor with the person who’s our nominee is embarrassing.”

— Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) slammed his fellow Republicans for showing up at Donald Trump’s porn star hush money trial this week.

Coulter Disses Ramaswamy on His Own Podcast

“You are so bright and articulate — and I guess I can call you “articulate” since you’re not an American Black. Can’t say that about them, that’s derogatory,” she sneered, before turning her venom towards his own skin color. … I agreed with many, many things you said during — in fact, probably more than most other candidates when you were running for president, but I still would not have voted for you because you’re an Indian.”
