Mitt Romney's Twitter Alter Ego Pierre Delecto Is Running For President As A Democrat

POLITICS | November 15th, 2019 7:05 AM

As if the field of democratic presidential hopefuls wasn’t already crammed full of all those relatives who only came to Thanksgiving for the excessively heaping Jenga towers of free food, we have yet another late candidate who swears they’re your distant cousin but you’re relatively certain that they just saw the vehicular cluster, smelled your aunt’s famous pecan pie, and honestly had nothing to lose. This week’s newest entrant is, surprisingly, Republican Senator Mitt Romney’s Twitter alter ego, Pierre Delecto.

Last month, the news media and social media were abuzz after some follower figuring led to the uncovering of the secret pseudonym. Both Delecto and Romney believe that the amount of positive exposure Delecto received following the incident is more than enough to entertain a presidential run. “He got more news coverage than I ever did while I was running for president,” Romney said. “Plus, 'elect' is right there in his name. The decision was a no-brainer.”

When asked about the fact that Pierre is somehow a Democrat despite Romney’s Republican allegiance, the Utah senator had this to say, “I can’t control who he is. We may not agree on every policy, but I’m stuck with him regardless. It's a blessing and a curse.”

Early polls which include Delecto show that he is quickly gaining popularity. The only question mark so far surrounds Delecto’s citizenship. Delecto steadfastly defends his United States citizenship, but Republican detractors claim he was born in France. Delecto may get out of this one on a technicality, however, since he was never physically born at all.
