In a stunning display of Romneycare, Mitt Romney’s son, Josh, says he lifted four people out of a car that crashed into a home late Thursday night after celebrating Thanksgiving. He updated his Twitter with the not-so-candid picture, and later sent a written statement to the Salt Lake Tribune:
“Last night, after Thanksgiving dinner with my parents and family, I drove with my wife and children to my home. We exited I-215 South at 4500 South and came to a stop at the intersection. Just then, a vehicle traveling at highway speed passed narrowly by my car, through the intersection and into the kitchen of a home across the street.
I drove to the accident site and entered the home where the car had come to a stop on its side. I opened the car door and spoke with the four passengers inside the car. Miraculously, they appeared to have no major injuries. I was able to help each of them get out of the car and lift them down to the ground.
My family and I are grateful that no one was seriously injured and glad to have been able to help those affected by this terrible accident. What I did to help the people involved in the accident is what anyone else would do who witnessed such a potentially dangerous situation.”
While the lack of pupils in his eyes suggests not having a soul, his actions certainly suggest otherwise. Rescuing people from a wrecked car is commendable. But the juxtaposition of the wreckage while smiling like a tourist at Disneyworld just seems kind of awkward. Regardless, nice work, Josh. Now work on your Twitter-Fu, your humblebrag is showing.
