Failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney, the Senator from Utah, was lampooned on Twitter after he betrayed the GOP by voting with Democrats to convict President Trump on one article of impeachment.
Like most things Romney does, the hollow gesture had no effect on the final outcome.

Carpe Donktum tweeted a comical jab aimed at the GOP defector, writing: “Mitt Romney is the Man Behind Blue Lies. The fact that President Trump is everything he can’t be drives him insane.”
The video was a riff of The Who song, “Behind Blue Eyes.”

Comedian Terrence Williams mocked “Mitt ‘Mom Jeans’ Romney” as a jealous hater.
Mitt “Mom Jeans” Romney is jealous of President Trump.

President Trump tweeted that he doesn’t mind that “puppet” Democratic Senator Joe Manchin voted against him.
Trump said the people of West Virginia are furious at Manchin and “will never forget his phony vote on the Impeachment Hoax.”
By the same token, Trump said: “The wonderful people of Utah will never look at “grandstander” Mitt Romney with anything but contempt and disgust!”
…But, just like the people of West Virginia will no longer look at weak & pathetic Joe Manchin the same (I got the Pension Bill approved, Manchin couldn’t do it), the wonderful people of Utah will never look at “grandstander” Mitt Romney with anything but contempt & disgust!

Even Mitt’s own niece — GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel — condemned RINO Romney’s vindictive vote.
McDaniel tweeted: “This is not the first time I have disagreed with Mitt, and I imagine it will not be the last. The bottom line is President Trump did nothing wrong, and the Republican Party is more united than ever behind him. I, along with the GOP, stand with President Trump.”
This is not the first time I have disagreed with Mitt, and I imagine it will not be the last.
The bottom line is President Trump did nothing wrong, and the Republican Party is more united than ever behind him.
I, along with the @GOP, stand with President Trump.

Attorney Pam Bondi was a member of President Trump’s impeachment defense team. She said the sham impeachment will go down in history “as a huge stain” against bitter shrew Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party.
Bondi, the former attorney general of Florida, said she’s disgusted that Romney got conned by lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff.
“It’s disappointing that Senator Romney bought into all of Adam Schiff’s continued lies about the President. No one else did,” Bondi told Fox & Friends. “President Trump will be reelected and [Democrats] are going to keep trying over and over again because of all the great things he has done for our country. They can’t handle it.”
Bondi continued: “This was just a ridiculous sham on our country. And for the taxpayers, a waste of all this time and energy, when [Democrats] could be doing all the good things that President Trump has been doing for the country.”

Judge Jeanine Pirro also torched Romney, saying Mitt is “snake in the grass” who betrayed Trump after groveling for Trump’s support when he ran for senator.
Pirro said Romney’s insidious envy will ultimately destroy him from the inside-out.
“Your jealousy of this man [Trump] is a constant rage burning within you because you can never rise to the heights that he has,” Pirro said. “Because guys like you fold like wusses.”
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. https://t.co/OclaIHyKnu
