Mitt Romney was a bully in high school. His bullying is recounted by no less than 5 witnesses, some who have worked for Republican offices, and they all express remorse and shame that they either participated in the bullying or abetted it with their silent complicity. Mitt, however, laughs it off and says he can’t remember doing any such thing, but “If there’s anything I said that was offensive to someone I certainly am sorry about that, very deeply sorry about that but there was no harm intended.” He also maintains he didn’t know his victim was gay. Yeah. There was no homophobic bullying in 1960 because no one knew what “gay” was. I buy that.
One of the witnesses openly called shenanigans on the idea that Mitt didn’t remember this boyish prank. The witness went on to describe the incident as anything but funny: “I’m a lawyer. I know what an assault is. This kid was scared. He was terrified. That’s an assault,”.
I don’t like bullies.
They are asshats.
