Congress meeting to certify the Electoral College votes turned into a madhouse.
Lawmakers fled as protesters took over the Capitol.
And all hell broke loose when Mitt Romney crossed one line with Donald Trump.
There is no love lost between Never Trump Founding Father Mitt Romney and President Trump.
But Romney sensed that twin body blows of Republicans losing both Senate runoff elections in Georgia and the scene of protesters storming the Capitol was his chance to marginalize President Trump and the Republicans in the House and Senate that support Trump.
In a statement ripping President Trump, Romney falsely claimed that the allegations of voter fraud were lies and that Donald Trump only invented them to soothe his bruised ego.
“We gather today due to a selfish man’s injured pride and the outrage of his supporters whom he has deliberately misinformed for the past two months and stirred to action this very morning,” Romney added.
Romney then falsely claimed the band of rioters staged an “insurrection” at the Capitol.
“What happened here today was an insurrection, incited by the President of the United States. Those who choose to continue to support his dangerous gambit by objecting to the results of a legitimate, democratic election will forever be seen as being complicit in an unprecedented attack against our democracy. They will be remembered for their role in this shameful episode in American history. That will be their legacy,” Romney added.
The blame for the riots lies with the rioters.
Donald Trump did not incite a riot. When violence broke out, he asked for his supporters to peacefully go home.
Romney also went after conservatives like Senator Josh Hawley, lambasting Hawley for pledging to object to Pennsylvania’s electors so Hawley could speak for the tens of millions of Trump supporters who think left-wing tech companies and partisan Democrat judges rigged the election against President Trump by censoring negative stories about Joe Biden and illegally changing mail-in voting laws.
“The objectors have claimed they are doing so on behalf of the voters. Have an audit, they say, to satisfy the many people who believe that the election was stolen. Please! No Congressional led audit will ever convince those voters, particularly when the President will continue to claim that the election was stolen,” Romney added.
As the 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney was the Democrats’ dream.
Romney acted like a punching bag and never fights back no matter how low the attacks.
One Democrat Super PAC TV ad essentially accused Romney of murdering a man’s wife by personally giving her cancer.
Democrats claimed Romney waged a war on women simply by saying he hired lots of women to work in his administration when he served as Governor of Massachusetts.
At no point did Romney defend himself and he barely criticized Barack Obama.
Instead, Romney’s political career is defined by hating conservatives and working to defeat anyone in a primary that disagrees with the Democrat Party.
Romney’s rage and lies burst forth in this statement.
