Poor Mitt Romney. His European tour that was supposed to be a campaign-boosting, charm-fest, but the trip has taken a turn for the worst, with Romney gaffing it up during his time at London Olympics. Those gaffes have inspired Twitter trends like #Romneyshambles, #Mitthitsthefan and #AmericanBorat.

First, a Romney advisor was quoted saying President Barack Obama doesn't understand the "Anglo-Saxon heritage" of Britain and the United States. Then, in an interview with NBC, Romney questioned if London was really "ready" for the Olympics.

Prime Minister David Cameron jabbed back at Romney's insulting comments, telling the Telegraph, "We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world. Of course it's easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere." Cameron refers, of course, to when Romney's Utah-based commodities firm assisted during the 2002 Winter Olympics in Utah City.

When the world got wind of how Romney was treating his London hosts, the jokes came almost too easily. Twitter flooded with quips from users and "#Romneyshambles" quickly turned into a popular Twitter hashtag in the UK on Thursday afternoon, according to Yahoo News.

Democrats capitalized on the #Romneyshambles trend with a video compiling the various gaffes Obama's likely opponent has made during his London trip.

One Telegraph commentator in the clip says: "Mitt Romney is perhaps the only politician who could start a trip that was supposed to be a charm offensive by being utterly devoid of charm and mildly offensive."
