A month after losing the 2012 presidential election, Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, were at the ringside in Las Vegas on Saturday night to watch Manny Pacquiao getting knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez in the sixth round of their welterweight bout.
You can almost see the Romneys having flashbacks to last month's election night!
The referee waved the fight to an end after Pacquiao went down for about two minutes after Marquez threw a right hand that flattened Pacquiao face down on the canvas in the sixth round.
Before the fight, Romney met Pacquiao in the fighter's dressing room at the MGM Grand, according to the New York Times, which described the "surreal" exchange:
In came Mitt Romney. Yes, that Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and the presidential runner-up, every hair on his head in place. Romney, in fact, came in twice. His introduction was at once awkward and hilarious.
"Hi, Manny," he said. "I'm Mitt Romney. I ran for president. I lost."
This is apparently how Mitt Romney might be introducing himself to people since losing the elections!
Well, with a lot that’s been going on social media regarding Pacquiao’s loss, these tweets are among the toppers.
