Well, as earlier suspected, Mitt Romney and Donald Trump appeared together in Las Vegas so Trump could finally endorse the Republican candidate. Mitt Romney opened his remarks by voicing what everyone was thinking: "There are some things that you just can't imagine happening in your life. This is one of them." Hear, hear!
Trump opened for him, sounding a lot like all the Republicans concerned with whether the world is "laughing" at America. "Our country is in serious, serious trouble. They take advantage of us, they laugh at us, they can't believe their good fortunes, and they can't believe what they are getting away with." He continued, “Mitt is tough, he’s smart, he’s sharp, he’s not going to allow bad things to continue to happen to this country that we all love." As Trump spoke, Romney kept the sort of tight smile he usually reserves for his fellow candidates when they criticize him at debates. (As pictured above.) But he had kind words for Trump and used most of the speech to address issues facing Nevada voters. At any rate, we've finally learned how the Republican reality show ends.
