What does it take to go viral? For Mitt Romney, all you need is a button-down shirt, a Utah Jazz jersey over it, and a little trash-talking.
The former Massachusetts governor and presidential candidate, now running in Utah for the U.S. Senate seat held by Orrin Hatch, had courtside seats at Monday night’s Jazz playoff game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the TV cameras caught him taunting Thunder star Russell Westbrook.
That moment has gone viral online and inspired a lot of snarky comments on Twitter. Here is a sample of the funniest tweets:
ROMNEY: I love to watch basket-ball [pronounced with a hyphen somehow]. The Jazz are a fine troupe.— Simon Maloy (@SimonMaloy) April 24, 2018
Mitt Romney taunting Westbrook while wearing a jersey over a button-up kinda makes sense if you’ve ever played Church Ball on a Wednesday night with a bunch of Mormon guys.— Janan (@jananamirah) April 24, 2018
