Mitt Romney led the Never Trump movement in 2016.
And in 2018 he won election to the United States Senate.
That’s when he started plotting the most awful betrayal of Donald Trump that anyone imagined.
At a Washington Post Q&A event, outgoing Speaker Paul Ryan claimed Romney could succeed John McCain as the “moral” center of the Republican Party.
During a Q&A hosted by the Washington Post, House Speaker Paul Ryan positioned Mitt Romney as John McCain’s moral successor.
In one of the last interviews Ryan will have given as House Speaker, he praised his long-time friend, former running mate, and Utah senator-elect. “It’s great that he’s coming,” Ryan said. “Mitt believes there’s a role for him … as a standard-bearer for our party.”
McCain was a maverick GOP element in public perception, often resisting his own party’s majority stance on key issues as a matter of principle. Before his death, McCain famously voted against the repeal-and-replace Republican health care bill that would have crippled Obamacare, drawing Trump’s ire.
Trump supporters believe Romney is the successor to McCain.
But just not for any of the reasons Ryan claims.
Both Romney and McCain were RINO sellouts who hated conservatives and loved appeasing Democrats.
They both supported putting Hillary Clinton in the White House by refusing to support Trump’s Presidential bid.
And both Romney and McCain are globalists who favor international trade deals, amnesty and endless war.
They are the exact opposite of the America First movement.
McCain made his living as a thorn in the side of conservatives.
Romney appears ready to play the role of the media’s favorite “Republican.”
