As part of the continuing pattern of sadistic behavior (towards animals and humans) and cowardice (in every way) with Willard “Mitt” Romney, we now have this.
A few days later, [Romney’s close friend Matthew] Friedemann entered Stevens Hall off the school’s collegiate quad to find Romney marching out of his own room ahead of a prep school posse shouting about their plan to cut [“presumed” homosexual John] Lauber’s hair. Friedemann followed them to a nearby room where they came upon Lauber, tackled him and pinned him to the ground. As Lauber, his eyes filling with tears, screamed for help, Romney repeatedly clipped his hair with a pair of scissors. […]
“It was a hack job,” recalled Maxwell, a childhood friend of Romney who was in the dorm room when the incident occurred. “It was vicious.”
Also note that “[t]he incident was recalled similarly by five students, who gave their accounts independently of one another.” Confronted with this, of course Willard immediately owned up to it and profusely apologized for his heinous behavior, right? Uh, wait a minute, we’re talking about someone who wouldn’t stand up to Ted Nugent, Donald Trump, Rush Limbaugh, or a bunch of raging homophobes who just drove one of Willard’s top aides off his campaign. In other words, he’s the classic bully/coward, picking on animals and those less powerful than he is. So, of course, Willard claims he has “no recollection of the [gay-bashing] incident.” As usual, it’s a Willard #FAIL!!!
P.S. Romney now says, lamely: “Back in high school I did some dumb things and if anybody was hurt by that or offended by that I apologize”
