Mitt Romney thinks selfies are super weird.

"It's just a strange thing in America today," Romney said on Bloomberg Politics' new show With All Due Respect with Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. "Which is, if you're famous or you've been on TV people want to take a selfie and then put it on their Facebook and say, 'Look here's me with a famous person.' I wish I could say all those people voted for me and I would have won by a wide margin but I'm convinced that most of the selfies are just looking for someone they've seen before."

Here's exhibit A through K:
