We’re not sure how we missed this one the other day, but here’s Sen. Mitt Romney, dressed in what looks like Romney-branded camouflage, eating his favorite meat to celebrate National Hot Dog Day.
“I have a good one here, sliced in half with some pickles, onions, and ketchup, which is the way I prefer it”:

We have no idea why he and the folks in the background are wearing camo, though:
Anyone know why he is wearing camouflage? https://t.co/Z2eRJBWGpB

Some in the media fact-checked him if hot dog is a meat or not:
I miss the old days when silliness like this was the thing of the week. (The meat is called pork, senator. It's in the shape of *a* hot dog. Next I'll explain Dutch Apple Pie.) https://t.co/4BmhdrTSTU

Please tell me you know that “hot dog” is not a meat. It’s not like there are wild hot dogs out there https://t.co/nV0htklQo3

Libs, of course, aren’t happy:
Romney, 1/1/19: "I do not intend to comment on every tweet or fault. But I will speak out against significant statements or actions that are divisive, racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, dishonest or destructive to democratic institutions."
