1. For all those of you who can't resist the urge to jump on the Romney rehab wagon lets look back at 2012. Remember when Trump, Guiliani and Preibus threw a big donor event for Romney? (note the article written by Maggie Haberman) politico.com/blogs/burns-ha…
2. Here's the agenda for that 2012 Trump event. Note Trump & Trump sycophants who supported Mitt Romney listed as "the Intrepid Special guests" Priebus, Guiliani, Trump. Romney has long been woven into the same GOP machinery that brought us the Trump WH. He's not a liberal ally.
3. Romney chose Kris Kobach, Trump's single most notorious anti immigration crusader who has ties to White Supremacists as an advisor in 2012. Romney supported the Kobach backed law SB 1070 that institutionalizes racial profiling.

4. Romney chose Islamophobe John “it’s never a bad day to bomb Iran” Bolton as his Foreign Policy Adviser. Bolton, a favorite of the Mercers & anti-Muslim activists like Pamela Geller, (pictured here Bolton & Romney.) Bolton is now serving as Trump's National Security Advisor.
5. Walid Phares another Romney/Trump advisor is "a former militiaman & foreign affairs spox for the mostly Christian Lebanese Front—the militia responsible for the Sabra & Shatila massacres of Muslims during the Lebanese Civil War." He has ties to Horowitz, Gaffney, and Geller.
6. Another Romney adviser in 2008 and 2012 was Cofer Black, the former Blackwater executive and CIA official who ran the “extraordinary rendition” torture program. Blackwater is the private militia company founded by Erik Prince. thedailybeast.com/meet-mitt-romn…
7. In 2012 Romney joined virulent anti Muslim activists Pamela Geller & Robert Spencer's campaign against the Manhattan Islamic center which was derided in this article. Romney is not a moderate or more moral alternative to Trump. #VoteDemocrat2020. archive.boston.com/bostonglobe/ed…
