On Saturday, Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro became the latest conservative to speak out on behalf of about 94% of Republicans when she raked Sen. Mitt Romney over the coals for being the only member of the GOP to vote for convicting President Trump in the left’s impeachment coup attempt, calling him a phony and a wuss, among many other choice epithets.
“Permit me to introduce you to a non-leader,” Pirro said on her program, “Justice with Judge Jeanine.”
“The first United States senator in American history to vote to convict the president of his own party — Mitt Romney, the sole and only Republican to vote to convict President Trump,” she bristled.
“How dare he! How could he? And why would he?” she asked.
“Mitt dared to do what he thought was good for him individually,” Pirro continued. “Not for the party, not for us, and certainly not for America. He knew his vote would change nothing regarding impeachment but he tried to set himself up as a leader, going against everyone else,” she dramatically and mockingly said. “He took a stand he thought would impress others.
“It did. Many on the loony left defended him, saying his vote was ‘very patriotic.'”
Pirro continued on, attacking the selfish and jealous, failed 2012 presidential candidate for his supposed “promise before God to apply impartial justice” and to avoid his declared “fear” of exposing his “character to history’s rebuke.”
She went on to declare herself a person of faith and a believer before then lumping Romney in with Nancy Pelosi as “phonies” who only resort to calling God into a situation when they must defend their own misdeeds. “Who do these people think they’re fooling? What a bunch of phonies,” she spat.
Pirro maintained a steady, brutal tongue lashing of Romney for several more minutes and defended Trump for having had his Constitutional rights stripped from him during the Democrats’ fabricated charges brought against him in Congress, “where he was denied the presumption of innocence.”
“The truth is, Mitt, you simply despise Donald Trump,” she said. “Your jealousy of this man is a constant rage burning within you because you can never rise to the heights that he has because guys like you fold like wusses.”
Pirro called Romney an “embarrassment,” a “loser,” “arrogant,” and a “snake in the grass” who turned on Trump after he sought out and received Trump’s support during his political campaigns, and yet being subsequently quoted as saying “He [Trump] needs to be removed from office.”
“I have an idea,” she said. “YOU need to be removed from office. How about you get the hell out of the United States Senate? The people in Utah are furious with you.”
Romney’s inexcusable defection to the left has many conservatives calling for his expulsion from the Republican party, from the GOP congressional caucus, and some voters in Utah are even seeking to recall him from office.
The number of Romney critics to voice their contempt in recent days would fill a stadium Trump rally.
Rep. Matt Gaetz charged Romney with trying to “delegitimize” the president and his lengthy list of accomplishments, and that he should face the consequences for doing so.
“Romney is going to be associated with Judas, Brutus, Benedict Arnold forever, when he is not even a footnote in a footnote otherwise, because of his betrayal,” said Lou Dobbs of Fox News.
Commentator Laura Ingraham floated the possibility of moving to Utah and running to unseat the traitorous politico in his next Senate race, after saying: “We won’t ever forget. Utah should never forget.”
The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) disinvited Romney from its annual event after he sided with Democrats in the impeachment votes, according to American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp.
There is no poll data available as yet regarding conservatives’ views of Romney since his impeachment vote, but his GOP support is certain to be minuscule.
Conversely, the latest Gallup periodic measurement of Trump approval among Republicans had him at 94% during the last two weeks of January. His numbers are said to be moving even higher following the Senate’s acquittal of the president.
