Mitt Romney suddenly makes some mainstream media ‘friends’ after Trump-bashing week

All of a sudden, mainstream media’s new hero is Mitt Romney.

The former Massachusetts governor, and twice failed presidential candidate, took his second shot at President Donald Trump after the horrific events that unfolded in Charlottesville over the weekend.

On Tuesday, Romney took his first swipe at the president by insinuating that the Antifa thugs who showed up to do battle were there in peace and a stand against racism.

Romney took his jab at Trump further on Friday, when he demanded that the president apologize.

“I will dispense for now from discussion of the moral character of the president’s Charlottesville statements. Whether he intended to or not, what he communicated caused racists to rejoice, minorities to weep, and the vast heart of America to mourn,” he wrote on Facebook.

“In homes across the nation, children are asking their parents what this means,” he wrote. “Jews, blacks, Hispanics, Muslims are as much a part of America as whites and Protestants. But today they wonder. Where might this lead? To bitterness and tears, or perhaps to anger and violence?”

“The potential consequences are severe in the extreme. Accordingly, the president must take remedial action in the extreme. He should address the American people, acknowledge that he was wrong, apologize. State forcefully and unequivocally that racists are 100% to blame for the murder and violence in Charlottesville,” he said.

“Testify that there is no conceivable comparison or moral equivalency between the Nazis–who brutally murdered millions of Jews and who hundreds of thousands of Americans gave their lives to defeat–and the counter-protestors who were outraged to see fools parading the Nazi flag, Nazi armband and Nazi salute. And once and for all, he must definitively repudiate the support of David Duke and his ilk and call for every American to banish racists and haters from any and every association.”

Romney called it a “defining moment” for President Trump and ” a moment that will define America in the hearts of our children.

“They are watching, our soldiers are watching, the world is watching,” he said. “Mr. President, act now for the good of the country.”

Who knows? It might even lead to yet another bid for the presidency.

Or not.

His scolding of President Trump has earned him cheers from those who mocked and ridiculed during the 2012 presidential campaign.

But Romney got destroyed by those on the right who found his usual weakness unsurprising.
