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.
