The Disease That Won’t Go Away

From 5-12-16 episode of The Rob Zicari Show LIVE 10-1pm M-F

Mitt Romney is a little bitch. Yeah, I said it.

Even though I didn’t agree with it, I understood why Mitt did the press conference where he bashed Donald Trump. It was in the heat of the primary season and Trump is steamrolling through everybody. Panicked Republican establishment figures went to Romney and said, “You gotta help us. Trump is going to destroy us. Help us, Obi-Wan Mitt Romney, you’re our only hope.” So Mitt went out and torched Trump. His rant was covered on all the news channels and analyzed by all the expert pundits.

The plan backfired. The voters not only covered their ears at what Romney was saying, many were genuinely pissed off. “Shut up, Mitt. Go away. We rejected you in 2012. Take your magic underpants and scram. Go fight another old boxer with your man-boobs flopping around. Go away. We hate you.”

Now he’s back. Mitt cannot take a hint. You know what he’s like? He’s like the HIV virus. Something swimming around in your blood that you can’t get rid of. If you don’t take your medication, it develops into full-blown AIDS and you die. Mitt Romney is HIV. He popped up in 2008, but he was suppressed by John McCain. McCain kept the virus under control. Then he flared up again in 2012. Mitt was full-blown AIDS in 2012. We’re talking Matthew McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club. Tom Hanks in Philadelphia.


Obama suppressed Mitt and now’s he’s flared up again. If HIV is too strong an analogy, Mitt Romney is herpes. A swollen, red, painful, oozing boil that always seems to pop up before a hot date. You cancel your date, take medication, and a week or two later it goes away. Then a month or two goes by, you wake up and it’s there again. That’s Mitt Romney.

Herpes Romney has flared up again. Recent polls have shown Trump neck in neck with Hillary in key battleground states, so to divert everyone’s attention away from that, Mitt Romney made a post on Facebook:

It is disqualifying for a modern-day presidential nominee to refuse to release tax returns to the voters, especially one who has not been subject to public scrutiny in either military or public service. Tax returns provide the public with its sole confirmation of the veracity of a candidate’s representations regarding charities, priorities, wealth, tax conformance, and conflicts of interest. Further, while not a likely circumstance, the potential for hidden inappropriate associations with foreign entities, criminal organizations, or other unsavory groups is simply too great a risk to ignore for someone who is seeking to become commander-in-chief.

Mr. Trump says he is being audited. So? There is nothing that prevents releasing tax returns that are being audited. Further, he could release returns for the years immediately prior to the years under audit. There is only one logical explanation for Mr. Trump’s refusal to release his returns: there is a bombshell in them. Given Mr. Trump’s equanimity with other flaws in his history, we can only assume it’s a bombshell of unusual size.

(Anticipating inquiries regarding my own tax release history, I released my 2010 tax returns in January of 2012 and I released my 2011 tax returns as soon as they were completed, in September of 2012.) 

There has been a big push to have Donald Trump release his tax returns. Trump says he will release them after the IRS is done auditing him. This makes perfect sense. Why would you want to have the media going through your taxes and possibly raising red flags while you are under investigation? Any intelligent accountant would tell you the same thing. Wait until the audit is finished.

The primary season is over. Donald Trump is the nominee. When Mitt Romney does what he’s doing, from having meetings with Bill Kristol to float various third party scenarios to making a Facebook post  whining about Trump’s taxes, it makes him look like a jealous, jilted, stalker girlfriend. Mitt Romney needs to understand that it’s over.


Mitt Romney popping up like a herpes sore is as perplexing as it is pathetic. The only reason to do what he’s doing has to do with his third party meeting with Bill Kristol. Kristol’s plan is to run one or more candidates in key states to deny both Trump and Hillary the necessary electoral votes and have the presidency decided in the House of Representatives with Speaker Paul Ryan waiting in the wings as the White Knight. There’s definitely some plotting and shenanigans going on. Last week, Ted Cruz made moves to deny Trump his delegates in Texas. Why would he do this, unless he’s part of the Kristol scenario?

Romney says Trump hasn’t been subject to public scrutiny. Are you kidding me? Mitt is so jealous that Trump is the nominee, he can’t even see straight. He can’t think straight either, as evidenced by this moronic statement:

Further, while not a likely circumstance, the potential for hidden inappropriate associations with foreign entities, criminal organizations, or other unsavory groups is simply too great a risk to ignore for someone who is seeking to become commander-in-chief.

Let me ask you something. If you’re dealing with criminal organizations and unsavory groups and foreign countries on the terror list, are you going to list them on your tax returns? If you’re doing business with ISIS or the Sinaloa cartel, would you put that down? I’m telling you, Mitt Romney is mentally challenged. He’s an overwrought stalker ex-girlfriend drunk-dialing Donald Trump at 2AM. He’s a stubborn, nasty, pus-filled lesion that won’t go away. You take medicine to suppress it, but it’s always there. Lingering. You’re doomed with it all your life. That’s Mitt Romney.


The Republican Party is doomed if they go through this third party plot. The Mitt Romney disease will never go away, but with proper medication it can be controlled. The first reply to Romney’s post perfectly sums up what everybody is feeling about the Romney outbreak:

Mitt I like you and I would (have) voted for you in 2016 but please shut up and go home

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Trump 2016
