Scott Baio, the actor from “Happy Days” and “Charles in Charge,” responded to Mitt Romney’s tweet attacking the president by threatening him.
“Hey, @MittRomney, beautiful golf courses in Utah……maybe I’ll move there, play a few rounds, and unseat you,” the actor said.
And he didn’t stop there. He humiliated Massachusetts’s former governor by saying that he owes his wife money for a fundraiser that was canceled.
“My wife is still waiting for her $2600 refund. Remember your wife canceled that Beverly Hills political luncheon fundraiser? But your campaign kept the money,” he added.
Baio tweeted in response to the supposed Republican senator’s attack on President Trump.
“Having failed to make even a plausible case of widespread voter fraud or conspiracy before any court of law, the President has now resorted to overt pressure on state and local officials to subvert the will of the people and overturn the election. It is difficult to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American president,” Romney had said.
According to The Blaze, Baio’s tweet was retweeted more than 8,000 times to support his sentiment. However, this was not the first time since Senator Romney appeared to take sides against Trump.
Romney had appeared after the election on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” and he had said then to host Chuck Todd: “I think when you say that the election was corrupt or stolen or rigged, that that’s, unfortunately, rhetoric that gets picked up by authoritarians around the world. And I think it also discourages confidence in our democratic process here at home.”
“And with a battle going on right now between authoritarianism and freedom, why, I think it’s imperative that we not use language which can encourage a history course which would be very, very unfortunate,” he said.
Romney admitted that no matter who becomes the president in January, President Trump “is without question the most powerful voice in our Party. He will have an enormous impact on our Party going forward.”
“He is not disappearing by any means,” he said, referring to President Trump. “He is the 900-pound gorilla when it comes to the Republican Party.” “We will follow the normal course in an election — recounts investigating irregularities — and when it’s over, it’ll be over,” he said.
