Hey Donald, If Mitt Romney’s A ‘Choker,’ What’s That Make You?

By losing to an incumbent president, Donald Trump has said, Mitt Romney 'just choked, choked like a dog,' and 'let us all down.' How is Trump doing by comparison?
Back in March, Donald Trump told a crowd in Salt Lake City, Utah, “I have many friends that live in Salt Lake, I have a lot of friends. By the way, Mitt Romney is not one of them. Did he choke? Did this guy choke? He’s a choke artist, I can’t believe. Are you sure he’s a Mormon, are we sure?”
For Trump, who likes to pin particular insults on particular people, “choker” is the favored nom-de-epithet for Romney. Just after the 2012 election, Trump told Newsmax:
Romney’s solution of “self deportation” for illegal aliens made no sense and suggested that Republicans do not care about Hispanics in general, Trump says.
“He had a crazy policy of self deportation which was maniacal,” Trump says. “It sounded as bad as it was, and he lost all of the Latino vote,” Trump notes. “He lost the Asian vote. He lost everybody who is inspired to come into this country.”
He ramped up his attacks and began repeating his standard insult that Romney “choked.” Here he is in January 2015:
“I supported Mitt Romney and he didn’t bring out the people. He choked in the end,” Trump said flatly. “The last month was a disaster. He should have won that election. He was going against the president, who was absolutely not good and not doing well.”
“Frankly, he just choked, choked like a dog, and we cannot allow that to happen again. The Romneycare is still with you, many other issues including the 47% statement that’s going to be brought up again, and he’ll lose for the same reason,” Trump said of Romney.

Trump won the last 2 debates plus the commander in chief forum. Romney was a one hit wonder on the first debate.
