Donald Trump responded to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s attack on the Republican presidential front-runner. But if you thought it would be a thoughtful, scholarly discussion of the issues, you don’t know Trump.
Romney called it earlier.
Romney earlier: See if Trump replies to me on issues or personal attack.
Trump now: Personal attack with BJ jokes.
Point proven. #NeverTrump

Still, Trump had his supporters, who said that the candidate meant it as a vassal kneeling before his lord.
@FoxNews only dirty minded people will flip this around and not fully listen to what he said . Mitt was begging . People Remember that

My take is mitt to drop to his knees like a knight does to a King crooked media take is it was a vulgar thing.

Trump does this often: He’ll make a statement that can be taken more than one way. In this case, everyone thinks the obvious, vulgar meaning, and when he’s criticized for it, he can go back and say “that’s not what I meant! I would never say such a thing.”
But whatever meaning you want to ascribe to his words, it’s still a personal attack.
