Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah shared a video on Wednesday in which he discussed his love for hot dogs.

“Well, as you all know, today is national hot dog day,” the lawmaker said as he carried a hot dog while wearing a hat with a hot dog design on it. He noted, “Perhaps you also know that hot dog is my favorite meat. I love hot dogs.”

The senator’s tweet, which has amassed more than 2 million views so far, elicited ridicule from many on social media.

“A deeply unserious person,” Blaze Media president Gaston Mooney tweeted in response to Romney’s post.
