Traitor. Rat. Loser. Disgusting human. Vindictive. Petulant child. Bitter. Piece of shit.

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.)

While he may be hated within his own party, we have a feeling history will feel much differently. And that’s what really matters.
