Mitt Romney Trashes President Trump: “Simply Jaw-Dropping,” “Clearly Intended To Inflame”

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) is back at it again. In a new interview with the New York Times, Mitt trashed President Trump in a quite vicious way.

“The comments and tweets over the past few days,” Mr. Romney said, “including a retweet of a 2019 video clearly intended to further inflame racial tensions, are simply jaw-dropping.”

Wow. Those are some strong words from Mittm, but if past is prologue toothless words from the failed candidate Romney

From The Salt Lake Tribune:

The national newspaper said Romney’s willingness to go it alone among GOP senators in criticizing the president “fits a familiar pattern of the former Republican standard-bearer playing the unlikely role of maverick.”

Romney, of course, was the only Republican senator who voted to impeach Trump. He has said that he will not vote for Trump this year but has not said whom he will support. Four years ago, he voted for his wife instead of Trump.

The Times had asked about a dozen GOP senators about Trump’s recent statements, and no others would comment. “This is also a familiar pattern: Mr. Trump saying something incendiary while his fellow Republicans say nothing,” the newspaper said.

Among some of the claims that Trump made this week are:

Protests against police brutality were actually a secret “coup attempt” by anarchists “trying to take down the President.”

He retweeted messages asserting that the pandemic’s death toll was overstated. Evidence indicates the opposite is true.

Trump said that police officers like the one in Kenosha, Wis., who shot an unarmed Black man seven times last week — leaving him paralyzed from the waist down — have a hard time with pressure and so “they choke, just like in a golf tournament, they miss a three-foot.”
