[ cheers and applause ] as to just how this began brewing. like were you at home, sitting in the mitt cave, watchingevision and you just got so angry you ran out to the driveway and stomped on a ketchup packet? how did it happen? what the straw that broke the camel's back? >> well, it's been building over time. although i thought that i'd be best being a neutral arbiter here and calling balls and strikes and a foul nowi did that.
the mocking a reporter that's disabled di that asked tough questions did so because she was on her menstrual cycle, saying that george w. bush lied, saying that john mccain isn't a hero, and then disparaging all muslims andhe straw that broke the camel's back was the pretending that we don't know who david duke is, we don't know about the was with my son. we were driving. and he said to me, "dad, what are you going to tell the grandkids you did to stop donaldaid you know what, i've got to do something, now's the time. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: you know what i would say to my dad -- if myo me, i would have said, i don't know, what are you going to do? i'm getting out of the car. because donald trump is not a person you want to mess with. i mean, he is -- he can be ous. if he is elected president, you're going to have to move. [ laughter ] you know, that right? >> that's probably the case. but i will make sure that he taxes. he apparently is very good at auditing taxes. >> jimmy: what about this tax thing?
he hasn't released tax said, well, you took a long time to release your tax returns. but ultimately you did release your tax returns.nk we're going to find in his tax returns and is there something you know that we don't? >> well, actually, i released my back taxes in january of 2012. so he them by now. he went on various shows and said he would release them, that they were beautiful. [ laughter ] and now he's -- my guess is he will never they'll show something that really will surprise people and cause a lot of people to move away from him.hey will be. but when somebody tries to dissuade and push aside and divert you know something's going on. money people think he is or not paying taxes or take the deductions or speeches. something will point out he's not the person he's been telling people he is.
>> you're not. you're not required to. it's just been a long tradition in this country that presidents say you want to take a look at who i am? it's not just what i'm goingmyself, it's what the real deal is. and when it comes to donald trump there are some of us who think he's not the real deal, he's a phony. and others who think he is. hey, proves the tax returns. let us take a look and see if you have done what you've said you've done. and then also "the new york times" tape, let's see them.ay he's a phony. i'm sure everybody's played this clip and confronted you with it. but there was a happier time for you and donald trump. there was a time where he was supporting you and he his endorsement. at that time did you think he was a phony? >> well, when you're running for president, you want a lot of people to endorse you. and 61 for me. i was very pleased with that. but i would not endorse 61 million people for president. i'm happy to have the endorsement of a number of folks but i wouldn't endorse dobld trump has said during this campaign. what he said for instance, about
then he says putin on the other hand is a leader. he's got this all mixed up. had he said the things he said now during that last year i wouldn't have asked for his endorsement. >> jimmy: you would not not endorsement. >> no. >> jimmy: and i'm sure you hate this. this picture's not framed in your home? of the other candidates called you and said hey, thanks for saying that? >> well, i've actually contacted the other candidates. >> jimmy: oh. >> and said look, i'm happy too be of help in your campaigns. i don't know which of the three of you's going to be the strongest contender. but the great majority of republicans want someone other than donald help that person become the president. >> jimmy: of those three which one do you like the most? >> we're going to wait and see who can do the best job tonight, who can do the best job in theho can be the most effective posting up against donald trump. >> jimmy: so any of those three guys you're okay with. >> i will be happy to endorse any one of those three.o you know they're not phonies? have you checked these guys out? have you seen their tax returns? >> yeah. they've put their tax returns out.
people want to know about them. >> jimmy: now, we have -- this was actually your idea. and i like this idea. we've collected some mean tweetsluding donald trump have written about you. and we're going to take a break. when we come back, you're going to read some of those. share some of thoseis here.
>> jimmy: we're back with mitt romney. we're talking about donald trump. oh, man, he must hate you, huh?probably. >> jimmy: so if it came down to it and you had to vote for either donald trump or hillary clinton, what would you do in that situation? >> well, i'm nothappening. i'm going to do everything i can to support someone who can actually make sure our nominee is conservative ideals and someone i can be proud of. [ applause ] >> jimmy: let's speak hypothetically, mitt. who would you to pick one of those two people? >> i would either write in a name on the ballot or i'd find some other candidate in there who was a conservative that i could support. >> jimmy: would you,n a name, would you write my name on that ballot?
>> you write mine, i'll write yours. >> jimmy: okay. that would be get your endorsement. >> one vote each, right? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: obviously, you're a republican. you're siding with the republicans. you wantrepublican party. bernie sanders, what is your take on him? do you think he's an honest guy? do you think he is a guy that means what he says when -- >> i do. authentic guy. i think he's an honest guy. i just think he's terribly misguided. ronald reagan used to say it's not that liberals are ignorant. it's just that what they know is what bernie sanders knows is simply wrong. he's not going to help people come out of poverty. he's not going to build a strong middle class with policies that have been a failure around the my: and yet given the choice you would select bernie sanders over donald trump. yes? >> no, no, no, no. >> jimmy: sorry, i'm getting carried away with myself. youunny because your hair is so perfect. [ laughter ] you must look at bernie sanders and you go like what is this
>> you know, he is follically challenged. so you do what you can. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: of cl come and at that time if there are -- one candidate has the majority of the delegates that candidate will be the nominee. if no candidate has the delegates, then they have to figure things out. whether they keep voting until somebody has a majority. >> yes. >> jimmy: is there any chance you can wind up in there and you could wind up being a guy nominate to be the candidate? is that possible? >> no. >> jimmy: that's not possible? >> there are four people running for president. one of them will be our the first time something like that has happened, by the way, if it does happen. in the republican party history there have been i think 10eone has -- where there's been a contested convention. and in that situation seven of theid not have the plurality going into the contested convention ended up being the nominee. >> jimmy: when was the last time?
>> i think 1948 was thet happened. it's been a while. >> jimmy: a different world at that time. >> yeah. >> jimmy: so the only reason you're involved in any of this is simply to get rid of donald trump. >> look, it's 24 saying, you know, what kind of america are we going to have? are we going to remain the leader of the free world? are we going to be the shining city on aeek with the passing of nancy reagan we're reminded of the greatness of our presidents in the past. i want to make sure we have a great president, not someone who disparages people based onir race or their gender. this is a time for inclusion and greatness, and donald trump doesn't represent that to me. [ cheers and applause ]w, i have some tweets here. these are real tweets. these were made by various parties, including -- >> i'll sit up for this. >> jimmy: -- your friend donald trump. mind, i'll hand you each one. just read them aloud. it'll be painless if you just go through them. and there you go. all right. mitt romney reading -- d trum. mitt romney had his chance and
lindsey graham ran for president, got zero, capitalized, and quit. why are they now spokesmen got zero. got zero. the only people i know who got zero are the ones who paid 25 grand to be at trump university. [ applause ] >> jimmy: right. this is from a trump supporter. >> okay. donald trump is trying to pull america back from the brink and freakin mittth matches in the bathroom. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: is there any truth to that in. >> i'm not touching that. i'll tell you that. okay. @mittromney equals loser. that's true, actually. i lost. may not have noticed. let's see. who are you anyway? and by the way, where do you buy the shoe polish you wear in your hair?

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: one final question. you've made a lot of money. you've been very successful. how much would you pay donald trum top get out of the race? >> there's not a right price donald trump just needs to get out of the race. he said in there that he's sad.
