Before today’s anti-Trump tirade delivered at the University of Utah, Romney almost certainly wrote “Dad” at the top of his speech notes. He does this for every speech and debate. Weird, I know. And you can see an example of Romney doing this with his debate notes in the Netflix documentary Mitt.
The Romneys are a politically ambitious family, but it doesn’t seem to occur to Mitt that he may have just killed the political prospects of the next generation by denouncing Donald Trump—and by extension, the millions of Americans who support him.
