• Romney: When Clinton Smiles, Her Eyes Say ‘Where’s My Latte?’

    Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney ripped Democratic contender Hillary Clinton on Monday morning for seeming disingenuous at her campaign relaunch at Governor’s Island.

    “Somehow, though, when you see her on a stage or when she comes into a room full of people, she is smiling with her mouth, but her eyes are saying, where’s my latte?”Romney said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “It doesn’t suggest that she believes everything she’s saying,” he said.  “I was afraid as I watched the speech, in some respects perhaps it was that it’s so different than what she said in the past that I was finding it a bit jarring. I’m sure she’ll become more effective as time goes on. At this stage, what does she really believe? I think people wonder, can they really trust Hillary Clinton.”

    Romney warned that Clinton’s own personal wealth undercuts her progressive and populist campaign message.

    “Making populism a centerpiece of her campaign makes her particularly vulnerable,” he said. “Hillary Clinton is somebody who talks about how much money some people are making and how much less other people are making, but look at how much money she’s been making,”

    “How can she get out there and sell a populist message when she makes in one hour a multiple of what the average American will make in a year ?” he said

    “At this stage, what does she really believe I think people wonder, can they really trust Hillary Clinton?”
