(PatriotHeadline.com) – Mitt Romney’s decision to vote against the president, in favor of removing him from office, has gained him lots of support from the Democrats. Amazing, really, given they considered him the Devil incarnate during the 2012 race!
The most recent unlikely Romney supporter is Elizabeth Warren, the ultra-progressive and (allegedly) part-Native American candidate running on the Woke ticket.
When asked her opinion of Romney’s decision to vote against President Trump, Warren fawned and said she thought it was the “right thing to do.”
“I thought I was listening to a decent and honorable man who stood up and did the right thing,” she added.
Presumably, Warren didn’t think that way during Romney’s run for president, making it perfectly clear that this is little more than political posturing. If Romney is an enemy of Trump, he’s a friend of Elizabeth Warren. Even if he is an ultra-religious Mormon and Warren a radical liberal!
On February 6th, the Washington Post reported that Democrats were “moved to tears” by the Republican Senator. Romney had given an eight-minute speech in which he calmly described why he believed that the president was guilty. He played on his religion and presented himself as an honorable Republican who was willing to take the punishment and do the right thing.
Democrats might have been moved to tears and choking up, as the Washington Post reported, but Republicans saw it as the latest move in Romney’s war against rival Trump.
Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to write, “He’s now officially a member of the resistance & should be expelled from the @GOP.”
Following the speech, Romney was labeled a “snake” and “slippery” by Republicans.
On the Senate floor, Romney admitted, “I am aware that there are people in my party and in my state who will strenuously disapprove of my decision, and, in some quarters, I will be vehemently denounced.”
“I am sure to hear abuse from the president and his supporters. Does anyone seriously believe I would consent to these consequences other than from an inescapable conviction that my oath before God demanded it of me?”
Yes, Senator. Many do believe exactly that.
