Mitt Romney

Hits Costco

Buys Toy Car (Manufactured in China)

Mitt Romney went on a MASSIVE (and fiscally responsible) shopping spree at a Costco near his home in La Jolla, CA this week ... stocking up on all sorts of goods ... including a product MADE IN CHINA!!!

Besides the paper plates, dixie cups, wrapping paper, V8 juice drinks, pretzel snacks, Bisquick and bottled water ... Mitt and his wife Ann also purchased a model car made by the Maisto company (probably a gift for one of his 18 grandkids ... sorry for spoiling Xmas).

TMZ spoke to a rep for Maisto who confirmed their products are manufactured in China ... before they're shipped to the distribution center in Fontana, CA.

Of course, Mitt railed against China during his bid for the presidency ... claiming the country is manipulating currency and stealing American manufacturing jobs.

We tried to find some American-made toy cars that Mitt could've bought instead ... but we couldn't ... not even Hot Wheels ... they're manufactured in China and Mexico.

Mitt is a gigantic hypocrite taking his imported non-American made merchandise back to his swanky La Jolla mansion while most Americans have no health insurance and work minimum wage jobs. Thank GOD he lost the election!

It still supports American jibs for Costco . These nasty comments are filthy just like the filthy communist president we're stuck with because morons like you.

You libs had NO PROBLEM when Obama was campaigning in a foreign made bus but you rake this guy for buying a toy made in China, when even you numbskulls admit no toy cars are made here. I gues TMZ is where J school flunk-outs go. No wonder your TV ratings are so low

Kirkland the Costco house brand? Imagine that. Surely he could dig into one of those overseas bank accounts or rent out one of those million dollar homes to have enough to splurge a little more.

It's so great this horrible man did not win. If you voted for mitt your either a f**king idiot or someone who does not love america! He would have sent this country into a tailspin we would never recover from you dummies. I hate to break it to you a**holes but the country is obviously changing for the better & is smarter than you. Minorities actually vote informed now. Romney was a bad governor and did not respect minorities. He Ben refused to grace the telmundo network with his presence after he promised. He did not respect WORKING Americans. Thank god for Obama, now stop listening to racist rush Limbaugh and lying Fox News and pay attention to what real Americans want.
