Twitter reacts to Mitt Romney calling Donald Trump a 'phony'

Nothing seems to unite Donald Trump's supporters like an attack on their candidate, and Mitt Romney's comments Thursday, speaking from the University of Utah, definitely got their attention.

Here is a sampling of those reactions:

Trump let his Twitter legions handle the counterattack, opting only to post some benign tweets from his own account about a campaign stop in Portland, Maine, and Ben Carson's decision not to participate in Thursday night's Republican debate in Detroit.

Perhaps Trump said all he had to say in the preemptive tweets posted earlier Thursday morning.

Not sure about the begging part, but Trump did endorse Romney in 2012.
