The One Tweet That Captures Why Mitt Romney Is Totally Wrong for Betraying Trump and the GOP

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) is a traitor. He’s voting to convict Trump on one of the articles of impeachment. He’s siding with Democrats and exposing himself as someone who is against the Great American Comeback. To all those blue-collar workers who stayed home in 2012 because Obama was too liberal and Romney looked like the guy who fired them, he didn’t disappoint. He just spits in your face with this vote which is a direct missile fired at the blue-collar comeback that’s been engineered by this White House. Romney is doing this because of his conscience. Well, good for him. He’s principled, right? Except that he’s not. Donald Trump Jr. cited a damning Twitter thread by Gregory T. Angelo who noted the years of flip-flopping by Romney, exposing him as the guy who just wants to be invited to the cocktail parties.

He called Trump a conman and then vied to become his secretary of state. He said he didn’t want to return to the days of Ronald Reagan in 1994, and then said he would very much like to see a Reagan Republican be the 2008 nominee. In 2012, he accepted Trump’s endorsement in his presidential bid. And he accepted Trump’s endorsement during his 2018 Senate run. The man is doing this because he thinks he can run for president again. Maybe. Why would he do this? It seems Mitt has become infected with John McCain syndrome of just being angry. As Steve Guest noted, Trump is more popular than him in Utah and with this move, made the impeachment all about him—as he’s done without fail in years past. Mitt isn’t principled. He’s a spineless politician who just wants to be liked—and this is the perfect way to remain hated. He’s a man without a country now and the Republican Party should move to expel him. He’s a loser. He’s a traitor. And he will not be missed.

Again, the crowd who thinks this man is a principled conservative Republican, radio host Buck Sexton, who is also a regular fixture on Fox News, said it best: 

“Mitt cares so much about conservatism, the Constitution, American prosperity, protecting the unborn and securing our borders that when it really counts he is willing to backstab the most effective defender of all those things and hand the lunatic democrat-socialists a win.”

Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel added that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer should send Mitt a “thank you card” because this vote only screws over Senate Republicans and helps Democrats in their build to retake the upper chamber.

“Mitt Romney may think he's taking a shot at POTUS. But any real damage he causes will, in fact, be to Senate Republicans in tough races,” Strassel tweeted. “Schumer's goal with all this was retaking the Senate. If he succeeds, he'll hopefully remember to send Romney a thank you.”

Voters don’t care about principles. They want results. They don’t care about having a good person in office. They want results. And Trump makes and delivers on his promises. Mitt isn’t even close when it comes to such accomplishment. So long, Traitor Mitt.
