Mitt Romney, parroting another right-wing conspiracy theory:
Mitt Romney, speaking to a group of more than 200 supporters in hotel in the heart of London this evening, said he is “looking forward” to returning the bust of Winston Churchill to the White House after it was sent back to Great Britain by President Obama.
Wait, this bust?
That’s Obama showing off the Churchill bust to British Prime Minister David Cameron … INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE.
So yeah, the bust was never “returned” to the UK. In fact, it was moved to the residence. In its place in the Oval Office, Obama placed a bust of Pres. Abraham Lincoln. Pretty sensible, right?
Which goes to show, only in America does the self-styled “patriotic American” party get insanely outraged when a bust of a foreign leader gets replaced with that of an American president. And a Republican president, at that.
