Watch Mitt Romney Stone Cold Diss a Sick Man Who Asks Him About Medical Marijuana

If you thought Mitt Romney's quest to be the least compassionate human-like machine on the planet was new, you would be wrong. Here's an damning video of him from back in 2007 when a muscular dystrophy patient confronted then Governor Romney about his views on medical marijuana. The man, who is in a wheelchair, tells Romney that he and his doctor agree that medical marijuana is the only thing that helps him with his ailment. Mittens first suggests he use synthetic marijuana, but the man counters, saying he's tried it, but it makes him throw up. Then the man asks if Mitt would arrest him and his doctor for using medical marijuana, and that's when Mr. Robotney begins to experience a major malfunction. He abruptly cuts the conversation off and walks away—so that's where Michele Bachmann learned that move—and then starts saying hello to random people in the crowd, like a broken Roomba that keeps jamming itself into a wall. Yep, this ought to go a loooong way toward burnishing his image as a totally relatable cuddle bear.
