What was Utah thinking when they replaced Orrin Hatch with Mitt Romney in the U.S. Senate?
It looks like we’ve got another Jeff Flake on our hands who will spend his time in the U.S. Senate working against the Trump agenda.
Romney was a very weak candidate for president and then popped up to run for the retiring Orrin Hatch’s seat in Utah.
He’s always the opportunist…
He begged for a spot in Trump’s cabinet after trashing him during the campaign.
He returned to trashing Trump after he didn’t get the Secretary of State position.
“This is what Romney is still angry about. He had to prostrate himself when he interviewed for the Sec of State position. He felt humiliated when he wasn’t chosen after being paraded around by the President. This pic is priceless. Notice the look of constipation in Romney’s face.”

Then he begged Trump to endorse him for the Senate seat. Trump endorsed him…
Now he’s trashing our president again in a Washington Post op-ed claiming Trump “has not risen to the mantle of the office”.
What? Romney couldn’t even wait until he’s sworn in on Thursday to pen a nasty op-ed questioning President Trump’s character. Shouldn’t Romney be looking in the mirror? He continuously asked for favors from Trump only to turn around and trash him in the media. Who does that?
The tweet below didn’t age well:
Mitt Romney dropped to his knees for @realDonaldTrump’s campaign support but then turns around and bashes him after he gets elected.
Hey Mitt, stop playing politics and focus on accomplishing the president’s agenda. pic.twitter.com/KyMa6Hzk2p

“Meet the new Jeff Flake, same as the old Jeff Flake”:
What Romney doesn’t get is that we elected Trump because he’s a fighter. That’s it! Romney couldn’t fight his way out of a wet paper bag. This rude op-ed shows you what an absolute putz Romney is to slam our president just days before being sworn in. This is the warning shot to Trump that Romney will be a thorn in his side aka the new Jeff Flake.

Even Geraldo Rivera jumped in to respond to Romney’s “rude” op-ed:
I get that @MittRomney doesn't like @realDonaldTrump But since the elegant new senator from #Utah accepted the president's endorsement & earlier even petitioned @POTUS for a Cabinet-level position, Mr. Romney's op-ed seems rude & has the trappings of political showboating.

This is how we feel about Romney…He’s a Flake!
