President Donald Trump hit back hard at Utah Senator and former Republican golden boy Mitt Romney in a series of tweets Saturday morning, calling out the establishment elitist for siding with Democrats to enable a manufactured Ukraine controversy.
Mitt Romney never knew how to win. He is a pompous “ass” who has been fighting me from the beginning, except when he begged me for my endorsement for his Senate run (I gave it to him), and when he begged me to be Secretary of State (I didn’t give it to him). He is so bad for R’s!

Romney has rebranded himself as a pinnacle of “integrity” since arriving as a Senator in Washington, winning an easy-mode campaign in the state of Utah. He makes frequent objections to what he perceives as flaws in the President’s character, and has gone on a tear bashing Trump for his request to Ukraine’s President to investigate a potential Joe Biden corruption scandal in that country.
The failed 2012 Presidential candidate seems to pivot to what political position is convenient for him, swaying back and forth at the whims of the latest gust of Washington political trends. He accepted President Donald Trump’s endorsement when he ran for Senate, and had earlier interviewed to become his secretary of state, something President Trump mentioned in his tweets punching back at Romney.
Somebody please wake up Mitt Romney and tell him that my conversation with the Ukrainian President was a congenial and very appropriate one, and my statement on China pertained to corruption, not politics. If Mitt worked this hard on Obama, he could have won. Sadly, he choked!

While Romney still benefits from a large national platform dating back to his failed Presidential campaign, it’s worth noting most of his unpopular views have been largely rejected by national Republicans in the years since. Romney likes to depict his opposition to Trump as based upon the President’s supposed character defects, but in reality the President was instrumental in discrediting his neoconservative political positions in the 2016 campaign.

The former Massachusetts governor and finance capitalist will likely swing back to being a conventional Republican when it becomes clear that the prospects of impeachment in the Senate are negligible. It’ll be up to Senate and House Republicans if conservatives decide to take Romney seriously as anything other than a media-driven, moralistic phony.

ACQUITTED FOREVER: President Trump is Found ‘Not Guilty’ by the Senate and Will Remain in Office Following Impeachment
The Democrats wasted the public’s time and money with this charade.
President Donald Trump has been officially acquitted of two articles of impeachment and will not be convicted following his impeachment by the House of Representatives. He will remain in office despite the best efforts of the Democrats.
“The Senate having tried Donald John Trump, President of the United States, upon two articles of impeachment exhibited against him by the House of Representatives, and two-thirds of the Senators present not having found him guilty of the charges contained therein, it is therefore ordered and adjudged that the said Donald John Trump be and he is hereby acquitted of the charges in said articles,” Chief Justice John Roberts said to conclude the trial.

On the first article of impeachment pertaining to abuse of power, 48 senators determined that Trump was guilty while 52 determined he was not guilty. On the second article of impeachment pertaining to obstruction of Congress, 47 senators determined that Trump was guilty while 53 determined he was not guilty.
The Senate would have had to garner a supermajority of 67 Senators to determine that Trump was guilty of impeachable offenses. However, not even a simple majority could come to that conclusion even though the Democrats threw everything but the kitchen sink in an attempt to convince them.
“You can’t trust this president to do the right thing, not for one minute, not for one election, not for the sake of the country,” said House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). “A man without character or ethical compass will not find his way.”
The Democrat-led proceedings ended up being a massive waste of time at great expense to the U.S. taxpayer, as Trump and his Republican supporters said they would be.
“The president has done nothing wrong, and these types of impeachments must end,” said White House counsel Pat Cipollone about the witch hunt that occurred.
With impeachment now behind him, President Trump can focus on enacting his agenda and winning re-election in November.
