Shortly after it was clear that Donald Trump was on his way to steam roll the primaries, 2008 and 2012 nomination loser, Mitt Romney, jumped into the fray to criticize Trump’s reluctance to release his IRS filings to the public.
The attack turned to be severely hypocritical as Romney did not release his full returns into September of 2012.
But reality showed no influence over Romney’s thinking.
The Establishment kingpin then went on to attack Trump over his non-failure to disavow the KKK and David Duke:
A disqualifying & disgusting response by @realDonaldTrump to the KKK. His coddling of repugnant bigotry is not in the character of America.

After years from the political spotlight, Romney was pulled from political retirement to serve as the attack dog for the establishment elite.
