As Twitchy reported Sunday, Sen. Mitt Romney himself admitted to being behind the “Pierre Delecto” Twitter account.
Sen. Mitt Romney says he has been secretly using a Twitter account apparently intended to monitor political discussions on social media and to defend himself. https://t.co/YdTHhFMkA2

And because he’s also pretty much confirmed as pro-impeachment, he’s been getting a lot of attention from the media otherwise. He’s now the go-to Republican for the mainstream media when they need an anti-Trump quote, and Buck Sexton isn’t having it:
Mitt Romney is a sitting Senator worth hundreds of millions of dollars who feels the need to operate a sock puppet twitter account to snark at people and pump himself up

The good people of Utah have been skunked…should start a recall…

If he started the account to defend himself, he must be awfully damn busy typing.

Seems like something a Bill Kristol guy would do….

Yeah, I'll bet he referred to #PierreDelecto in conversations too. You know, just to make sure people knew that his own thoughts and ideas were mainstream. 😂😂😂😂

Mitt is sneaky AND subversive.

He's so dignified. He's so civil. Yeah, right.

He’s not the Boy Scout we thought he was.

He's a phony. Citizens of Utah this is what you got.

We’re not supposed to see his hand work the puppet’s mouth.
— Ronald G. Richards (@RGRichards) October 21, 2019
The really astonishing thing is that Mitt still thinks he has broad support.

Should change both Twitter accounts to Dr flip flop and Mr Liberal

Becket Adams has a pretty good theory for Chris Cillizza as to why Mitt Romney maintained secret 'Pierre Delecto' Twitter account https://t.co/3LMFIYTerI
