Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney laid into Hillary Clinton Monday two days after her campaign’s relaunch speech, saying her rhetoric is “so different than what she’s said in the past,” it’s “jarring.”

Romney also tied her facial expressions on stage to her new stances on issues, telling MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that while Clinton is smiling with her mouth, “her eyes are saying ‘where’s my latte?'”

“I thought the text touched the various places she needs to touch to try and keep her base intact,” Romney said when asked to react to the speech.

“Somehow, when you see her on a stage or when she comes into a room of people, she is smiling with her mouth, but her eyes are saying, you know, ‘Where’s my latte?'” Romney said. “It just doesn’t suggest that she believes everything she’s saying.”

“I was afraid as I watched that speech, in some respects perhaps it was that it’s so different than what she said in the past that I was finding it a bit jarring,” Romney said. “But I’m sure she’ll become more effective as time goes on. At this stage, what does she really believe? I think people wonder, can they really trust Hillary Clinton?”
