In late March, when Trump was informed that Sen. Mitt Romney was in quarantine after being exposed to Sen. Rand Paul, who had tested positive for COVID-19, he told a reporter, “Gee, that’s too bad,” according to the Washington Post. The reporter then asked Trump, “Do I detect sarcasm there, sir?” Trump replied, “No, none whatsoever.” A couple of days later, when Romney shared that he had tested negative for COVID-19, the president, actually employing sarcasm correctly, tweeted, “This is really great news! I am so happy I can barely speak. He may have been a terrible presidential candidate and an even worse U.S. Senator, but he is a RINO, and I like him a lot!” Trump refers to Romney as a “RINO,” which means “Republican In Name Only,” because the Utah senator has spoken against the president and voted to impeach him.
