Mitt Romney’s staff, with help from Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), played a little practical joke on Mitt Romney today at a campaign stop in Milwaukee, WI. Here’s the setup. Romney thought he was going to speak before an enthusiastic crowd after introductions by Ryan and Johnson. He got a big introduction, complete with loud crowd applause and his theme music and, as he stepped out behind the screen with Sen. Johnson he saw that it was all a prank. The room was almost empty.

Here’s the video, straight from Twitter, by his “body man” Garrett Jackson.

April Fools!!
