Mitt Romney, Kyrsten Sinema do “Ted Lasso” for Halloween

God knows he tried.

Utah Senator Mitt Romney on Thursday confused Twitter users by posting a message GIF about myself, dressed as the lead character from Ted Lasso for Halloween … with a caption from another show, Friday Night Lights.

Moving image shows a Republican Senator clicking on a yellow and blue poster that says “I Believe” – ​​just like American football coach Jason Sudeikis does British football coach in the Apple TV + Emmy Award-winning comedy “. …

Completing the Teda Lasso look, Romney wears a navy blue AFC Richmond jacket, a coaching whistle and, of course, Sudeikis’ signature mustache. However, the tweet text pays homage to another fictional soccer coach: Eric Taylor of Kyle Chandler from the hit sports drama Friday Night Lights.

“If you believe in yourself, you have clear eyes and full hearts, you cannot fail,” Romney wrote, quoting a famous quote from his beloved coach Taylor.

Perhaps Romney simply intended to kill two birds with one stone, saluting several TV heroes at once, but fans of both series did not quickly give him reason to doubt.

“It’s one thing to joke on a one-off tweet because you quoted a completely different show than what you planned.” tweeted writer Charlotte Claymer. “It’s a completely different matter to obviously plan a tweet in advance, and no one on your communications team picks up the obvious inconsistency.”

“Wrong Show, Champion” wrote Nation sports editor Dave Zirin. “[F]be angry with whoever did it. “

The politician later corrected the course by posting another GIF about how he catches a soccer ball in Ted’s suit and signs it with real lasso: “Your body is like daytime rice. If you don’t warm it up properly, something very bad can happen. “

In a subsequent tweet, Romney addressed Sudeikis directly, who is known to have played the 2012 presidential nominee during his tenure as an actor on Saturday Night Live.

“After 10 years, I’m finally coming back for a favor,” Romney wrote. “What was my @TedLasso, @JasonSudeikis?” Sudeikis, who is mostly inactive on Twitter, did not respond.

Also the Teda Lasso channel for Halloween is Arizona Senator Kirsten Cinema, who has joined Republican Senator as AFC Richmond owner Rebecca Welton (Hannah Waddingham) to pay tribute to the famous series.

While still one more tweetRomney shared a gif of himself delivering a small pink box of cookies at Sinema, a nod to Ted and Rebecca’s morning ritual at Ted Lasso.

“Boss Cookies,” signed the image of Romney. “She’s a cool cookie.”
