Traitor. Rat. Loser. Disgusting human. Vindictive. Petulant child. Bitter. Piece of shit.
Those are just a few of the adjectives Republicans are using to describe their former party leader, Sen. Mitt Romney, after he voted to convict Donald Trump earlier today.
“The president asked a foreign government to investigate his political rival,” Romney said in an emotional speech on the Senator floor before casting his vote. “What the president did was wrong. Grievously wrong.”

Romney was the only Republican to side with Democrats when he voted yes on Article 1 of impeachment, which found Trump guilty of Abuse of Power. (He voted no on Article 2, which found Trump guilty of Obstruction of Congress.)
The backlash from members of his tribe who, just eight years ago, wanted him to be their president, was swift and damning…
Mitt Romney is forever bitter that he will never be POTUS. He was too weak to beat the Democrats then so he’s joining them now.
He’s now officially a member of the resistance & should be expelled from the @GOP.

The original author of Obamacare, Mitt Romney, can go fornicate himself with a wire brush. That is all.

What is everyone so shocked about? Mitt Romney is a vindictive little rat who has put himself over country every chance he’s been given. Just like he failed to be president, he failed to remove this president. Loser.

Sorry, Mitt, this is what the Left will always think of you. “Car Elevators Are The Latest In Luxury — Just Ask Mitt Romney” https://t.co/J97WM8VpDA
There's a lot of votes you can take and still stay in the Republican party
The one vote that's not acceptable?
Being the sole Republican to vote to impeach a Republican President
Mitt Romney is a straight-up traitor

Every Democrat in the Senate is a liar and has no respect for the Constitution.
Oh yeah, and Mitt Romney.

We never thought we’d say this, but… We actually feel kinda sorry for the guy!
While he may be hated within his own party, we have a feeling history will feel much differently. And that’s what really matters.
