2012 Republican nominee, Mitt Romney may be the Republican parties only hope in stopping 2016 leading GOP nominee, Donald Trump in his race to the White House. Romney called out Trump last Thursday in an attempt to change the party’s stance in selecting Trump as leading front-runner for the GOP: “Here’s what I know: Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud,” Romney said. “His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He’s playing members of the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat.” Romney said that “dishonesty is Donald Trump’s hallmark,” pointing to his “bullying, the greed, the showing off, the misogyny, the absurd third-grade theatrics.” (Courtesy of CNN). Romney also pointed out that Trump will have some type of backlash about his speech, here is what Trump had to say:  “He was begging for my endorsement. (CNN). The irony in this situation being Romney courted Trump’s endorsement and Trump supported Romney in his 2012 campaign against President Obama.

Last Saturday night during a broadcast of SNL(Saturday Night Live), a skit was preformed, satirical to Donald Trump’s racist and outlandish remarks. The skit was viewed by millions and shared on social media, Trumps numbers have dropped,with Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio gaining running ground behind him. A similar situation occurred in 2008 with Sarah Palin; once SNL started to mock the politician, her popularity dropped rapidly.
