“I’m not sure about these cookies. Did you make those cookies? You didn’t, did you? No. No. They came from the local 7-Eleven bakery or wherever.”
— Mitt Romney in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, April 17, 2012, dismissing a plate of cookies that local people brought to a picnic table photo-op. Turns out the cookies were made by the Bethel Bakery, a popular and beloved local business, and Romney didn’t even try one.
“Let him eat cake next time.”
— John Walsh, owner of the Bethel Bakery, responding to Romney’s classless comment.
