Social media rakes Romney over hot coals for anti-Trump speech; ‘voters will decide!’

Mitt Romney’s attack on Republican candidate Donald Trump in a speech at the University of Utah set the internet ablaze Thursday.

Calling Trump a “phony” and a “fraud,” Romney said the GOP candidate’s promises were “as worthless as a degree from Trump University.”

Not surprisingly, the backlash on social media was swift, and scathing as Twitter users reminded Romney of his own campaign history.

As some pointed out, Trump’s apparent knack for gaining momentum every time the establishment attacks him may backfire on Romney and the GOP.

One hashtag summed up the Washington political system the Twitter users continue to bash.
