It’s really hard for Mitt to publicly call out a friend on something he disagrees with, no matter how nut job wacko the friend’s opinion is. He’s gonna do great negotiating with foreign leaders. It’s kinda like when John Boehner was asked about birthers, and he just would NOT say they were wrong.
I would like a president who has enough back bone to stand up against something that’s wrong. McCain confronted the crazies that came to his campaign appearances. Romney should do the same, instead of encouraging it.
The truth is, if Romney does not publicly say Trumps wrong then he can milk those voters who are angry, even over made-up crap. It’s cheap.
