Mitt Romney debuted some solid new Donald Trump zingers

Certainly, no one would confuse Mitt Romney with being a comedian. But on Tuesday night, he debuted two new jokes regarding his feud with Donald Trump that were, dare we say, actually creative.

Romney, who has loudly and publicly denounced Trump in the past few weeks, addressed his ongoing feud with Trump at the National Republican Congressional Committee on Tuesday night. Two jokes stood out.

The first was in response to Trump’s questioning of Romney’s Mormon religion—”Are we sure he is a Mormon? Are we sure?”—in Salt Lake City last week:

(The Mormon Church banned the practice of polygamy in 1890.)


Romney also got personal in the second joke by targeting Trump’s foreign wives:

Trump’s first ex-wife, Ivana, was born in Czechoslovakia, and his current wife, Melania, was born in Slovenia.

Trump has yet to respond to Romney on Twitter, as he usually does. Instead, he tweeted on Tuesday night about Ted Cruz’s wife, threatening to “spill the beans” on her.
