As the saying goes, politics makes for strange bedfellows and Mitt Romney has crawled into the sack with some of the worst elements of the political left with his jealously of President Trump.
Over the weekend, the failed Republican presidential candidate hit the Sunday morning “news” show circuit where he joined NBC’s Chuck Todd and CNN’s Jake Tapper to snipe at a man who he lacked the guts to do battle during the 2016 GOP primaries.
Romney’s harping that Trump has a soft spot for the evil Russians while promoting the fake news that he was planning to declare martial law to keep Joe Biden out of the White House earned Pierre Delecto high praise from an unusual source.
Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar jumped at the chance to weaponize Mitt’s smears against Trump which she did in a retweet of MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin that resurrected the conspiracy theory that the POTUS is a Kremlin operative.
According to Omar:
“A Republican former candidate for the Presidency of the United States said this about Trump “the president has a blind spot when it comes to Russia”, and the it isn’t a national scandal. 2020 is wild.”
That Romney’s fan club now includes the ethically-challenged, Somali-born member of AOC’s Squad who has a history of anti-Semitic sentiment it yet another shining example of the sad decline of the former governor of ultra-liberal Massachusetts who gagged away a winnable election to Barack Obama that inflicted lasting damage on the nation.
Omar’s Twitter fist-bump of Pierre Delecto was a result of Mitt’s conspiracy-saturated chat with Tapper on CNN’s “State Of The Union” on Sunday.
TAPPER: Welcome back to State of the Union. I’m Jake Tapper.
After months of negotiations, stretching into the early hours of this morning, leaders on Capitol Hill now say votes could come as soon as today on a $900 billion relief package.
This would help millions of Americans whose checks from the federal government are set to stop the day after Christmas.
Joining me now is a senator who has been deeply involved in the negotiations, Republican Mitt Romney of Utah, also a former Republican presidential nominee.
Senator Romney, it’s good to see you. Thanks so much for joining us.
I want to get to that relief bill in just one second.
But, first, I have to ask you. President Trump held a meeting on Friday in which he reportedly discussed with his disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn this deranged idea to declare martial law to force new elections in states that Biden won.
They also discussed appointing conspiracy theorist Sidney Powell as a special counsel to investigate her baseless claims of election fraud, and also issuing an executive order to seize voting machines.
This is, needless to say, quite alarming and scary to a lot of people. What’s your response? What will Senate Republicans do to make sure none of this madness happens?
ROMNEY: Well, it’s not going to happen. That’s going nowhere.
And I understand the president is casting about, trying to find some way to have a different result than the one that was delivered by the American people.
But it’s really sad, in a lot of respects, and embarrassing, because the president could right now be writing the last chapter of this administration with a victory lap with regards to the vaccine. After all, he pushed aggressively to get the vaccine developed and distributed. That’s happening on a quick time frame.
He could be going out and championing this extraordinary success.
And, instead, he’s leaving Washington with a whole series of conspiracy theories and things that are so nutty and loopy that people are shaking their head, wondering, what in the world has gotten into this man?
Romney may have been mocked and ridiculed by the same media but his desperate craving for acceptance after he choked like a dog against Obama has driven him into their camp as they have waged over five years of total information warfare against Trump.
He has frequently joined Democrats since going to Washington to fill the Senate seat of retired Orrin Hatch including gaining notoriety as the only “Republican” to vote with the radicalized former party of JFK on impeachment.
The territory that Romney now resides in has transformed him from merely a misguided man into a dishonorable one.
