Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, speaks during a roundtable discussion at Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital with officials and health experts to receive an update on anti-vaping efforts Thursday, Oct. 10, 2019, in Salt Lake City. In his first public appearance since President Donald Trump unleashed a storm of insults on Twitter, Mitt Romney stuck by his criticism of Trump’s actions but said he’ll likely win reelection.

Mitt Romney was trolled by his own grandson with a particularly on-the-nose Halloween costume, according to The Hill.

Romney’s son, Tagg Romney, tweeted a photo on Thursday of his son Thomas dressed up as “Pierre Delecto.” The costume included dark sunglasses, a beret and mustache, and a name tag with “Mitt Romney” crossed out and “Pierre Delecto” written underneath.

The costume is a reference to a secret Twitter account that was revealed earlier this month to belong to Mitt Romney, according to The Hill.

Romney said he uses a secret account to follow political figures and news on Twitter, the Deseret News reported earlier this month. When asked if the “Pierre Delecto” account belonged to him, Romney responded, “C’est moi,” or “It’s me” in French.

Twitter users responded with delight to Thomas Romney’s costume. One person tweeted that the costume was “my favorite meta halloween costume of all time.”

Another tweeted that the costume was a sign of the times, claiming, “Nothing more 2019 than dressing up as Grandpa’s twitter name for Halloween.”

Others questioned whether the costume was leading to bigger things.

One Twitter user claimed that Thomas Romney “wins Halloween” with the costume.

However, Thomas Romney wasn’t the only one with a Pierre Delecto costume this year.
