Trump: Romney ‘Demeaned’ Himself Reading Mean Tweets I Wrote on Jimmy Kimmel

‘I thought he didn’t look good

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
[excerpt]

DOOCY: “You have to feel good after a week or so after being the human pinata where the Super PACs spent tens of millions of dollars attacking you and your biography, for you to actually wind up with the last laugh.”
TRUMP: “Well, I do feel good. And I’ll tell you, Steve, it was vicious. It was disgusting. They were lies — those ads are lies. It was a disgrace to see what happened. That’s one of the reasons I did what I did when I showed the steaks. I showed wines, I showed the magazine. All of this stuff. You know, I sold the airline. You’re not allowed to sell — you know? I filed with the federal elections commission one of the greatest financial statements ever created, okay, ever created. By the way, if I didn’t create that statement, if I didn’t do well, you know I wouldn’t be able to run for president, because I’ll be scrutinized like nobody before. I filed almost a hundred pages of documents listing assets and debt and we have very little debt, and all of these things. And then I have somebody get up and talk about steak and a magazine and, you know, small stuff. And, you know, I have a great magazine. I mean, it’s for my club magazine. All of these different things. I thought it was so terrible that Mitt Romney did that. Now, it was false. But I’ll tell you he shouldn’t have done what he did last week, I understand where he’s coming from. You know, he had a big defeat four years ago. I understand where he’s coming from and he should and have gone on the Jimmy Kimmel show. He demeaned himself by doing that?”
KILMEADE: “In what way did he demean himself?”
TRUMP: “I thought it didn’t look good. I don’t think I would have done that. I don’t think he should have been reading the tweets — negative tweets. Why is he doing that? What is he doing? I thought it was demeaning. Nothing to do with me. I thought it was demeaning to him.”
DOOCY: “Donald, tell you what, some people are unfamiliar with what you’re talking about so here’s the clip of Mitt Romney last night with Jimmy Kimmel reading mean tweets.”
[clip starts]
ROMNEY: “@realDonaldTrump: Mitt Romney had his chance and blew it. Lindsey graham ran for president, got zero, capitalized and quit. Why are they now spokesman against me? sad. Got zero. Got zero. The only people I know who got zero with the ones who paid 25 grand to be at Trump University. They’re the ones who got zero.” (Laughter)
