Mitt Romney called jealous, vengeful for crucifying Trump in New Year’s op-ed, months after begging for his endorsement

RINO Utah senator Mitt Romney blasted President Trump in a scathing Washington Post op-ed.

Playwright William Shakespeare famously claimed that “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” Anyone who believes that has never met incoming Utah Senator Mitt Romney, who torched President Trump in a blistering Washington Post op-ed.

Romney — who begged to be Trump’s Secretary of State — is apparently still holding a grudge at having had to jump through hoops like a show poodle, only to be rejected for the Cabinet post.

Romney exacted his petty revenge in a WaPo op-ed, where he suggested that President Trump be more like liberal leaders in Europe (which is a mess) and tamp down his pro-America rhetoric.

“The Trump presidency made a deep descent in December. The departures of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, the appointment of senior persons of lesser experience, the abandonment of allies who fight beside us, and the president’s thoughtless claim that America has long been a ‘sucker’ in world affairs all defined his presidency down.

His conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions this month, is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office.

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.

To a great degree, a presidency shapes the public character of the nation.”

So basically, Mitt Romney is saying that he agrees with many of President Trump’s policies, but doesn’t like his brash demeanor. Um, so what?

Romney then cited a survey showing that Europeans think less of the American presidency under Donald Trump. Romney wrote:

“Trump’s words and actions have caused dismay around the world.

In a 2016 Pew Research Center poll, 84 percent of people in Germany, Britain, France, Canada and Sweden believed the American president would “do the right thing in world affairs.”

One year later, that number had fallen to 16 percent.”

Again: So what? Remember what Trump said: “I’m the president of the United States — I’m not the president of the globe.”

Meanwhile, here’s what’s happening across Europe:

President Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale said poor Romney — who failed to win the presidency in 2012 — is so jealous that he can’t see straight.

“Jealously is a drink best served warm and Romney just proved it,” Parscale tweeted.

Meanwhile, here’s a walk down memory lane: In March 2016, Romney held two press conferences to blast then-candidate Donald Trump as a “fraud, a phony, and a con man.”

Keep in mind that if RINO Never-Trumpers like Mitt had their way, Hillary Clinton would be president right now.

 

Eight months later, in November 2016 — right after Trump won the presidency — Romney traveled to New York to beg Trump to make him Secretary of State. Trump wisely rejected him.

At a press conference following their dinner at the Trump Hotel — where Mitt ate plenty of humble pie — heaped praise on Trump.

“America’s best days are ahead of us,” Romney gushed. “What I’ve seen through these discussions I’ve had with president-elect Trump…give me increasing hope that president-elect Trump is the very man that can lead us to that future.”

In February 2018, Romney begged President Trump to endorse him as Senator from Utah, to replace the retiring Orrin Hatch.

Trump graciously endorsed him. And now we’re back to Square 1, with the flip-flopper in the empty suit showing his true colors again.

All we can say is: Bring it on, Mittens. Trump thrives on confrontation. While these types of clashes enervate most people, they energize this president.

Let it go, Mittens!

Hannity: It’s sad that Mitt Romney is sucking up to the liberal media that hate him
