This year has started with Mitt Romney releasing a boring an uninspired op-ed condemning Trump’s character and behavior. And this would have been a real powerful and important statement to make like, in 2016.
Donald Trump has been an unbearable asshole since the beginning of time. He was around with Adam and Eve. “I gave her a rib. I can grab her pussy whenever I want’.
Here’s what Mitt had to say about Trump’s policies:
It is not that all of the president’s policies have been misguided. He was right to align U.S. corporate taxes with those of global competitors, to strip out excessive regulations, to crack down on China’s unfair trade practices, to reform criminal justice and to appoint conservative judges. These are policies mainstream Republicans have promoted for years. But policies and appointments are only a part of a presidency.
Personally, I’d argue my biggest problems with Trump are actually his policies and not the fact that he pays for sex while his wife is 9 months pregnant, which too, is bad.
Banning Muslims, providing tax cuts to the wealthy that makes it easier for them to continue to hoard wealth while the middle class evaporates, the whole separating immigrant children from their parents and stuffing them in cages thing.
Nope, Mitt Romney has
Romney is slightly bothered that Trump is crass and rude sometimes. But again, Romney released this at the top of 2019. If your problem with Trump is his behavior, why wait until the back end of his presidency to speak up about it?
Ah, got it. Time to go on the press tour and round up the rest of the coward republicans who aren’t fully MAGA but are totally okay with shutting down Planned Parenthood for no reason.
Round of applause to Mitt for standing up and saying ‘Hey Trump, be nice’. Way to stand out on a limb. What courage. What leadership. #Romney2024
