Mitt Romney may be a multimillionaire but that doesn’t mean he can’t enjoy a good bargain.
Romney was seen with his wife, Ann, stocking up on just about everything during a trip to Costco in La Jolla, Calif. this week.
Besides the paper plates, dixie cups, wrapping paper, V8 juice drinks, pretzel snacks, Bisquick and bottled water … Mitt and his wife Ann also purchased a model car made by the Maisto company (probably a gift for one of his 18 grandkids … sorry for spoiling Xmas).
TMZ spoke to a rep for Maisto who confirmed their products are manufactured in China … before they’re shipped to the distribution center in Fontana, CA.
Of course, Mitt railed against China during his bid for the presidency … claiming the country is manipulating currency and stealing American manufacturing jobs.
Romney’s inability to connect with average voters may have cost him the election, as he was painted as a wealthy Republican with no concern for the middle class. The 65-year-old didn’t help his image thanks to secretly taped video footage where he announced that 47 percent of Americans feel entitled to government assistance.
