Mitt Romney operates a secret Twitter account where he defends himself against critics and slams Trump's policies

Mitt Romney admitted that he operates a secret Twitter account where he slams President Donald Trump's policies and defends himself against critics.

Slate's Ashley Feinberg uncovered an account which operated under the handle @qaws9876, and went by the name Pierre Delecto. The account, which has since been made private, joined Twitter in July 2011, one month after Romney announced his presidential campaign.

According to screenshots of the account provided by Slate, Delecto's Twitter activity involved defending Romney against critics, slamming Trump's policies including his decision to withdraw US troops from Syria, and liking dozens of tweets from official Mitt Romney pages.

Romney, one of few Republicans in Congress who has openly criticized Trump, admitted that he operates a "lurker" account on Twitter to The Atlantic's McKay Coppins in a profile published by the outlet on Sunday.

4. "Pierre" is probably from his Mormon mission in Paris, for which he avoided the draft...

and Delecto is Latin for "I delight/please/charm" so obviously is delusional self-worshipping fantasy.
