Romney had been a vocal critic of Trump during the 2016 campaign, and on Tuesday, people couldn't help notice he looked a little...uneasy.

In March, Romney called Trump a phony and a fraud. After dinner on Tuesday, he told reporters he was impressed with Trump's speech upon winning the presidency and the people he had chosen for his transition team and cabinet."He did something I tried to do and was unsuccessful in accomplishing," Romney said. "He won the general election."

It looked like a bad blind date.

When your friend sets you up and asks how it’s going

Every 1st date I’ve ever been on on the East Coast: Where’d you go to school? Me: BYU Oh...so you’re Mormon? Have y… https://t.co/rS5ZcudnlH

i dont think the date at the table next to me is going well

Or like he'd made a deal with the devil.

Mitt Romney: "I'd sell my soul for a tiny, fancy meal." 🌫POOF🌫 Trump: "Helloooooooooooooooo."

It seemed like Romney had something to say to all of us.

Some people knew exactly what he was going through. (2016, man.)

After all the bad blood during the campaign, it was a wacky situation to be in.

*record scratch* *freeze frame* Yup, that's me. You're probably wondering how I ended up in this situation ...

At least Trump seemed to be having a good time. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I think this is gonna be Trump's Christmas card this year
