Never Trump RINOs still populate Congress.
But their leader just found out he made a career-killing mistake.
That’s because one Trump ally delivered a rude awakening that left this Never Trump RINO seeing stars.
Mitt Romney received thunderous applause from the fake news media and fellow Never Trump RINOs for his January 1 op-ed slamming Donald Trump because of his supposed poor character.
But Romney’s message fell flat with the broader Republican Party.
Senator Rand Paul ripped Romney as a stale big government Republican.
Georgia’s David Perdue cautioned that Romney could turn into Jeff Flake on steroids.
And Indiana freshmen Senator Mike Braun swooped in for the kill shot.
Braun told Breitbart that Mitt Romney represented the failed, career politicians who sold out the American people that motivated to him to run as a pro-Trump candidate for Senate in the first place.
The Trump presidency made a deep descent in December,” Romney wrote in the Post last week. Romney suggested that “on balance, his conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions this month, is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office.”
Sen. Braun, who has championed the president’s America First agenda and defeated Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) by nearly six points in 2018 midterms, said that he ran for office because he was tired of the Mitt Romney “old way of governing.”
Braun represents the people of Indiana as a fellow freshman senator alongside Romney.
“One of the reasons I ran is because it’s no longer business as usual and to me, Mitt Romney would epitomize business as usual and the old way of governing,” Braun charged. “Many people were shaken by the fact that there is a novel approach and a new style. Thank goodness, because what we had is dismal.”
Some in the media – as well as in the Republican Party – thought the Romney op-ed spelled doom for Trump.
Instead, Romney’s attack showed the rank-and-file of the GOP still stands with the President.
