Tagg Romney Defends Grandpa on Twitter

Sunday night’s episode of Mad Men included a reference to George Romney in which Henry Francis, a political P.R. guy, doesn’t want his boss going to Michigan “because Romney’s a clown, and I don’t want him standing next to him.” That Romney, father of current presidential candidate Mitt, was governor of Michigan in 1966, the year in which the show’s current season takes place. Mitt’s son Tagg was not pleased with the shout-out, taking to Twitter to exclaim, “Seriously, lib media mocking my dead grandpa?” and clarify, “George Romney was as good a man I’ve ever known. Inspirational leader, worked for civil rights, promoted freedom. We need more like him.”
