Mitt Romney Blasts Back After Audience Boos Him for Voting to Impeach Trump: ‘Aren’t You Embarrassed?’

Yes, so this is where we stand.

Mitt Romney opposed President Obama in 2012 on the usual GOP platform, as predictable as a goose eating bread at the park, tax cuts for the wealthy, pro-military, pro-cop, pro-states’ rights, pro-life, all the shit that the Right wants and needs.

That was Mitt, and he won Utah in a presidential election.

Mitt Romney’s political beliefs haven’t changed at all. He voted “Yes,” to every Supreme Court justice and every other insane Trump judge. He voted for the tax cut, etc. etc. He just refused to go along with the Trump cult and saw Trump’s actions as illegal and un-American. He is a conservative Republican who won’t bow to Trump.

We fully admit, it helps to be worth near a billion dollars and a big enough presence that he can tell everyone to go to hell even if he’s voted out in his next election. Regardless, it’s still a principled stand.

And that’s exactly why the GOP in Utah (at least a significant portion) now finds Mitt to be a traitor, and a “communist,” which is almost laughable because Mitt is the polar opposite of a communist. But to the MAGAs, anyone who opposes Trump is a communist, an enemy to be hated and defeated. That is the scary part.

Somewhat impressively, Romney had a retort:

You can boo all you like. I’ve been a Republican all of my life. My dad was the governor of Michigan and I was the Republican nominee for president in 2012… Aren’t you embarrassed?

One would have better luck attempting to embarrass the kitchen table.

Do you think President Biden's vaccination plan is working?

Let’s check in on the cult. The cult follows the leader. Trump is the dictator:

Above. “They lie” and Trump comes in to stand up for the truth. Breathless.

Back to Romney:

Peace, y’all
