Mitt Romney and Donald Trump have been rivals for years.
Romney thinks now he is finally rid of Donald Trump.
And Mitt Romney left Donald Trump’s blood boiling with this reaction to stopping the steal.
On the day Congress was set to vote on certification of the Electoral College, Mitt Romney lashed out at Donald Trump in a vitriolic, unhinged rant calling President Trump a disgrace who “dishonored” the Presidency.
.@MittRomney: “President Trump has disrespected the American voters, has dishonored the election system and has disgraced the office of the presidency. I'm confident we'll proceed as the Constitution demands and tell our supporters the truth, whether or not they want to hear it."

Mitt Romney ran for President twice, the Senate twice, and Governor once.
In those five campaigns for office Mitt Romney never once attacked Democrats in such terms.
In fact, Romney never criticized Democrats at all.
Romney then rubbed salt in the wound after it looked like Democrats would win two Senate seats in the Georgia senate runoff elections by blaming President Trump for the Democrats win.
“It turns out that telling the voters that the election is rigged is not a great way to turn out your voters,” Romney said referring to President Trump’s charges that the election in Georgia was rigged through loose mail-in ballot signature laws.
Romney and other establishment Republicans want to blame Donald Trump for this loss so they can marginalize him if the President leaves office.
But in reality, the reason Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue lost was because they did not fight for Trump during the period when the election was contested.
