Laura Ingraham floats moving to Utah to boot Romney as she levels him in stinging rant

Utah Sen. Mitt Romney had best beware, because when his first term in office expires in 2025, there’s a chance someone else will be stepping in to fill his shoes. And amazingly, that someone else could very well be current Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

“We won’t ever forget,” the host said late Wednesday of Romney’s decision to vote to convict President Donald Trump of “abuse of power.” “Utah should never forget.”

She added, “And if I have to move there to run against him in four and a half years, I will! I do like that Park City skiing and the summer hiking.”

The remarks were made at the end of the segment below.

The segment began with the same level of pure anger.

“Mitt, you made your stand, now you should resign,” she said. “You committed a fraud on the people of Utah, on the Republican Party, on the Constitution, and have thoroughly embarrassed yourself.”

“[Former House Speaker John] Boehner retired. [Former House Speaker Paul] Ryan left office. [Former House Majority Leader Eric] Cantor was bounced out of office. They just weren’t in sync with the priorities of most American Republican voters, and neither are you.”

All three were accused of being RINO Republicans (“Republicans in Name Only”) whose interests didn’t align with those of the Republican Party’s base.

“Utah does not need someone who doesn’t get his phone calls returned,” Ingraham continued. “They need an actual, functioning senator, and Mike Lee can’t do everything.”

Unlike Romney, whose career in politics began decades ago as the governor of Massachusetts, where he devised the framework for what would later become Obamacare, Sen. Mike Lee rode into office nine years ago as a member of the Tea Party

“Folks are supposed to enter politics to advance policies that improve the lives of everyday Americans,” the FNC host added. “That’s what Trump did, and his policies are working. But Romney apparently went into politics because of his dad, or because he wanted everyone to think he was a good person.”

“He never actually wins arguments or persuades anyone of anything. And at the end of the day, one man was trying to impress the elites in Washington today, and the guy in the Oval Office was not.”

In voting to convict the president on “abuse of power,” Romney not only became the first senator in U.S. history to ever vote to convict a president of his own party, but he also became the target of endless love, praise, and adoration from powerful, wealthy left-wing elites.

Observe:

“All along, he was just trying to make America greater, and he has,” Ingraham began to conclude, referring to the economic gains seen under Trump.

“Romney, I hope, enjoys his brief moment in the sun while he’s lauded by the very people who spent the last 20 years attacking him. Because in a few weeks, the phone will stop ringing. He’ll be lucky to get booked on Chris Cuomo’s show. We won’t ever forget.”

She then dropped the zinger about relocating to Utah so that she can run against him and once and for all eliminate him from the Republican Party.

Of course, with his poll numbers already trending lower and lower before his stunning impeachment vote, chances are that by the time the 2024 election swings around, Romney won’t stand a chance in hell against a conservative powerhouse like Laura Ingraham.
