Mitt Romney holds an event to help with storm relief and this is the crap he gets.
At least one reporter has low expectations for Mitt Romney’s performance at a storm relief collection event in Ohio today, as a live stream ahead of the event revealed.
This isn’t the first time that media figures have been overheard showing contempt for Romney. “They are happy to have a party with black people drowning,” Yahoo News’ Washington bureau chief David Chalian was overheard saying, in the context of the Republican National Convention taking place as a tropical storm brewed. The remark cost him his job.
These are not reporters. They’re DNC operatives with keyboards.
Update: We were going to surmise it was some clown from BuzzFeed earlier. Turns out our hunch was correct.
Looks like my snide comment, caught on livestream, was wrong: Romney got the tone just right at this event in Dayton.
