[ laughter ]threat made on the potatoes? because -- is isis planning to cripple our supply of tater
[ laughter ]now, donald trump's nearest competitor, senator ted cruz, was in virginia. he must not have secret service protection because tmz got rightout his latest piece of campaign merchandise. >> senator cruz, what's going to be good about the yoga mats you got coming out? everyone to go to our website, tedcruz.org, and get a breathe yoga mat. it's very good for calming. if you find your head exploding.illed with rage and unable to control yourself. spend some time on the breathe yoga mat. and it will bring you to peace.to make a heck of a qvc host when he loses this election. [ laughter ] i don't know who -- i'm not sure who would buy a ted cruz yoga mat. but they're a real thing. made. unlike ted himself.

eight bucks each.donald trump's shop is slightly more subdued than the other candidates. other than the fact that he's offering 17 different kinds of hats. he's also selling baby onesies. because you know, babies scream all day also. so that's a perfect gift for ] [ applause ] the democrats aren't doing so great in the merchandise department either.ets the "mom's trying too hard to be cool in front of her daughter's friends award" for this "yaaas hillary" shirt.l yaaas type. so hillary. and finally this is not something that bernie sanders isfficial page. but i think he should. this is the bernie sanders ceramic pipe. for tobacco only.upporters love their tobacco. it's the perfect way to say i support my favorite candidate,

e ] >> jimmy: we're back. our next guest is the -- was the 2012 republican nominee for president. he's returned to public life to do battle with donald trump.or of massachusetts. please welcome mitt romney. [ cheers and applause ] welcome. and you're just as handsome in r to be on television. >> you say that to all the guys, i know. >> jimmy: you have big hands, too. i like that in a politician. this is the first time i think anybody's ever come to the show
something. [ laughter ]le to go see this or do that -- >> it's the country, though, it's a country we're talking about. we have toing to be the leader of the free world. and i don't think donald trump should be that leader. [ cheers and applause ]ss they agree. i wanted -- i'm curious as to just how this began brewing. like were you at home, sitting hing donald trump on television and you just got so angry you ran out to the driveway and stomped on a ketchup packet? how did it happen?hat was 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 and strikes and a foul now and then. and i did that. but you know, over time, with the mocking a reporter that's orter that asked tough questions did so because she was on her menstrual cycle, saying that george w.
disparaging all muslims and then for me the straw that broke the camel's back was the pretending david duke is, we don't know about the ku klux klan. i was with my son. we were driving. and he said to me, "dad, what the grandkids you did to stop donald trump?" and i said you know what, i've got to do something, now's the time. [ cheers and applause ]ow what i would say to my dad -- if my dad said that to me, i would have said, i don't know, what are you going to do? i'm getting out of the car.rump is not a person you want to mess with. i mean, he is -- he can be very, very vicious. if he is elected president, you're going to have to move. [ laughter ]hat, right? >> that's probably the case. but i will make sure that he does not audit my taxes. he apparently is very good at auditing taxes. >> jimmy: what about this tax thing?returns. he hasn't released tax returns and people said, well, you took a long time to release your tax returns. but ultima tax returns.
find in his tax returns and is there something you know that we don't?eleased my back taxes in january of 2012. so he should have released them by now. he went on various shows and them, that they were beautiful. [ laughter ] and now he's pushing back, maybe he -- my guess is he will never release his tax returns because that really will surprise people and cause a lot of people to move away from him. i don't know what it will be.s to dissuade and push aside and divert you know something's going on. either he's not making the money people think he is or not paying much in taxes or takingt don't seem right or not giving money to the veterans he cares so deeply about in his speeches. something will point out he's not the person he's been telling people he is.norance but aren't you required to release your tax returns? >> you're not. you're not required to. it's just been a long tradition residents say you want to take a look at who i am? it's not just what i'm going to tell you about myself, it's what the real deal is.
think he's not the real deal, that he's a phoney. and others who think he is. hey, prove it to us. give us the tax returns. if you have done what you've said you've done. and then also "the new york times" tape, let's see them.

[ applause ]speak hypothetically, mitt. who would you vote -- if you had to pick one of those two people? >> i would either write in a ot or i'd find some other candidate in there who was a conservative that i could support. >> jimmy: would you, if you are writing in a name, would you write my name on that ballot?] >> you write mine, i'll write yours. >> jimmy: okay. that would be pretty exciting to get your endorsement.t? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: obviously, you're a republican.
republicans. you want somebody from the republican party.s 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.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 wrong.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 world. >> jimmy: and yet given the choice you would select bernie sanders over donald trump. yes? >> no, no, no, no. >> jimmy: oh. >> jimmy: sorry, i'm getting carried away with myself. you know, it's funny because your hair is so perfect.

>> look, it's 24 grandkids.hat 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 a hill? and 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 whod on their religion or their race or their gender. this is a time for inclusion and greatness, and donald trump doesn't represent that to me.
