Mitt Romney may be the most cowardly Republican in the Senate.
He is willing to stab anybody in the back, as long as it helps his political career.
And Romney was just forced to admit one fact that will end his career.
Mitt Romney’s approval rating is down the tubes.
He is among the most disliked Republicans in the Senate in his own state.
And as it turns out, that has everything to do with his mistreatment of President Trump.
In a recent series of town hall meetings, he asked constituents if they think he is being too tough on President Trump, and according to reports, the majority of people in the room raised their hands.
Romney openly admitted that fact to USA Today, adding that despite the reactions, his meetings have been civil, which isn’t surprising for Utah.
“People tend to associate with people of like mind, and they assume everyone thinks the way they do,” Romney said. “And so, our town hall meetings have been quite civil.”
Romney most recently attacked Trump for following through on his promise to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria.
“The President’s decision to abandon our Kurd allies in the face of an assault by Turkey is a betrayal,” Romney said in a tweet. “It says that America is an unreliable ally; it facilitates ISIS resurgence; and it presages another humanitarian disaster.”
He also went on the offense against Trump when the so-called “whistleblower” came forward, without waiting for facts to even come out.
“If the President asked or pressured Ukraine’s president to investigate his political rival, either directly or through his personal attorney, it would be troubling in the extreme. Critical for the facts to come out,” Romney tweeted.
In response to these attacks Trump called Romney a “pompous ass.”
He also pointed out the fact that Romney relied on his endorsement in his most previous election in order to get elected to the Senate.
Trump gave him that endorsement after Romney spent months attacking him on the campaign trail.
So Romney was not willing to endorse Trump in 2016, but instead worked directly against him.
But when Romney wanted Trump’s endorsement for his 2018 Senate run, Trump was willing to give it to him.
That one endorsement could perhaps be the worst decision Trump has made since getting into the White House.
But it displays the fact that he is willing to give people second chances.
And it shows more about Romney than anything, considering that he was very nice to Trump during his run, but as soon as he won, he attacked Trump.
Just after getting the Republican nomination in Utah, he threw his support behind Robert Mueller who was running his fake Russia investigation.
He wasn’t brave enough to do it when he was facing Republican voters that support the President.
Romney is clearly hedging his bets on Trump losing in 2020, or being impeached.
But if he isn’t, he will likely try to come crawling back to get in Trump’s good graces.
Do you think President Trump will win in 2020?
