Mitt Romney dresses as Ted Lasso for Halloween


Sen. Mitt Romney is adding some pep — and a mustache — to the upper chamber, debuting a “Ted Lasso”-inspired costume for Halloween.

The Utah Republican posted an image of himself on Thursday dressed as the Apple TV show’s earnest protagonist, complete with a Lasso-ism or two, and a little “Friday Night Lights”:

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) played along with Romney’s turn as Lasso — subbing in for Hannah Waddingham’s character on the show, AFC Wimbledon owner Rebecca Welton.

ITK hears Romney is a fan of the Apple TV series, and he’s previously put his own spin on coach Eric Taylor’s famous catchphrase from “Friday Night Lights.”

Jason Sudeikis, who stars as Lasso, frequently portrayed Romney on “Saturday Night Live” during the then-GOP presidential nominee’s 2012 White House bid.

It’s not the first time that a member of the Romney clan has gotten in the Halloween spirit.

Back in 2019, the 74-year-old lawmaker’s grandson, Thomas Romney, dressed as “Pierre Delecto.” The fictional French figure was the name of Romney’s online alter ego that he used for a Twitter account.
