Mitt Romney is a famous political figure. He rose to national fame when he unsuccessfully ran for President of the United States against Barack Obama.
Since losing the election, Mitt has stayed in the public eye. He was an outspoken critic of President Trump during his 2016 campaign and many felt he betrayed the Republican Party for breaking with Trump on key issues.
Now, Mitt is a U.S. Senator for the State of Utah. In a clip that has now gone viral, Mitt's team can be seen presenting him with a cake for his birthday. The cake is made out of Twinkies and was topped with candles.
However, that's when things got really weird. Instead of blowing out his Twinkie-cake like a normal human being, Mitt decided to pick each and every candle out of the cake and blow them out individually.
The team in the room appears to keep their composure but they were most likely just as confused as the rest of us who watched the bizarre incident unfold via the social media post. Many people wondered why on earth Mitt chose to blow out the candles this way.
Now, Romney is opening up on the incident. The Senator claims he had two major reasons for choosing to blow out the candles in a strange manner. He says he has a "bit of a cold" and didn't want to "spray" his germs on all of the Twinkies, according to TMZ.
He also mentioned that he joked with his staff about each candle being an extra wish. So, in Mitt's eyes, it was a win-win. Still, the internet almost exploded after his antics.
