‘I Am Sickened’: Romney Blasts Trump in Scathing Reaction to Mueller Report

Original Article

Posted By: WhamDBambam, 4/19/2019 5:53:07 PM

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued a statement Friday tearing into President Donald Trump over the Mueller report, declaring he was “sickened” by its findings. Romney wrote, in a statement posted to Twitter, that it was “good news” Mueller’s team found insufficient evidence to charge Trump with conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election. “The business of government can move on,” he said. “Even so, I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,” Romney continued.

Comments:

Well, it didn´t take this Richard-less carpetbagger as long to start his virtue-signaling mewling as I had thought it would.

I´m sorry I voted for this man. Given the choice then, there was no other choice. But I´m thankful his true character is being revealed. He´s a jealous little (tall) weasel. Always liked his wife, but he´s despicable.

Mr. Romney, I´m sickened by you. You might not tweet, like our President, but your words aren´t worth listening to.

MAGA!!! KAG!!! Mr. President, I for one am proud to have voted for you!

On cue, the Trump haters, Republican and Democrat, ignoring the actual Mueller Report, go on the attack. Hey Mitt, if this is how you feel, run against Trump in the primaries, or are you afraid of the outcome.

#3 - The GOPe Uniparty is alive and well. The object is for the Dems (Nadler, Schiff and Cummings) to run Trump off before the primaries so Mitt can assume the Weld campaign team and run as the party´s "savior".

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

I am sick to death of Mitt Romney. By the way, Mitt, I have been wanting to take up the playboy look you have been sporting, and the wind surfing you have been doing, all while the POTUS has been working 14 hour days 365 a year to help this country. Go back to your wind surfing, and your looking in the mirror in self worship, Mitt. The country does not need you, Mitt, and you would not have the Senate seat, except your cohorts bought it.

Isn’t it in the Bible that man looks on the outside and the Lord looks at the heart. Compare Romney to President Trump: Romney May look slick and pure but inside is one angry nasty person who would stab his best friend in the back while PDT may seem course and tough at first glance but inside is a man who cares deeply for this country and wants the truth to come out.

Moralistic Mitt.
Ostensibly religious, Mitt is ignorant of one of the Bible´s basic messages regarding leadership: God does not choose the best man. He chooses the best man For The Job. The Christian Right certainly realized this in voting for this great, albeit flawed, President of ours. The alternative was more liberty-sucking, corrupt lefty autocracy.
Mitt, YOU failed us miserably in 2012 and inflicted obama´s devastating second term upon this great nation. Wise up.

I wish I could say I´m surprised, but I´m not. Romney is completely unscrupulous, IMO. When he was running for President, his campaign planted several operatives right here at Lucianne to slime anyone who supported another GOP candidate. It was absolutely nasty. As a result, I ceased being an Ldotter after more than ten years and just recently returned.

Romney is almost certainly a globalist. He´s clearly a hypocrite, a turncoat and an enemy of everyone that DJT defends. I find him detestable.

The holier than thou Romney if he ever runs for President would be kicked into the gutter and laughed at by the corrupt leftist and liberal Democrats. Oh I forgot Obama already did that to the wimpy Romney.

So President Trump did not like the leftist Democrats and their “Deep State” Super Bureaucrat minions cooking up a bogus hoax investigation to “frame” him and reacted the way any President who cared about his country and job, and was not about to sit on a stool in the corner as the Democrats and their media minions called him a Russian agent 24/7. How do the mealy mouth Democrats of today think that liberal Democrat President Lyndon Johnson would have reacted and the language he would have used if the wimpy Republicans had attempted to “frame” him by way of such a sham investigation?

Mitt, you are truly a whited sepulcher - By their fruits ye shall know them, and you are as a fig tree with beautiful foliage but no fruit. PRESIDENT Trump has done several things that you could not. First - he managed to win, and I think that is what causes half of your pettiness. Second, he actually brings to pass the conservative agenda. You would never have done that even if you had won. Cleanse your inner vessel, worry about yourself

Mediaite goes for a sure attention grabber. One that will get enough comments to impress advertisers.

" “Even so, I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,” Romney continued. "

Should that have read highest offices , not office,in the land?

But I wish the Patrician establishment Romney would shut up and represent Utah instead of trying to return the GOP to GOPe.

Dear Friend-of-Socialists Mitt,
I want to personally thank you for letting No-Brain Barack beat your behind in 2012. Yes, we had to endure 4 more years of Islamist-enabling and intentional economic decline, but by letting He Himself defeat you, it set the stage for the greatest presidency ever. So from a deplorable heart - thanks!!

Britain's Ambassador to Washington has described Donald Trump as 'inept', 'insecure' and 'incompetent' in a series of explosive memos to Downing Street. Sir Kim Darroch, one of Britain's top diplomats, used secret cables and briefing notes to impugn Trump's character, warning London that the White House was 'uniquely dysfunctional' and that the President's career could end in 'disgrace'. His bombshell comments risk angering the notoriously thin-skinned President and undermining the UK's 'special relationship' with America.

An Arkansas woman is suing the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, alleging that he is the father of her baby. Thus far, she’s been unable to serve him with the papers, her attorney said. Lunden Alexis Roberts filed a petition for paternity and child support against Robert Hunter Biden in Independence County on May 28, days after Hunter Biden reportedly married another woman in California. The two-page suit states that Roberts and Hunter Biden “were in a relationship” and that “Baby Doe” was born in August 2018 “as a result of that relationship.” It doesn’t say how or where they met or offer other personal details.

With a deadline for nearly 30 cases looming and weighty issues of religion, gerrymandering and the 2020 census pending, Chief Justice John Roberts took his black leather chair at the bench this week and said three decisions were ready to be announced. It was a paltry total for a week in June, the final month of the annual session. What's more, two of the three were by unanimous votes and none made big headlines. But the term won't end this way. And much of the weight of this momentous session is on Roberts' shoulders.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued a statement Friday tearing into President Donald Trump over the Mueller report, declaring he was “sickened” by its findings. Romney wrote, in a statement posted to Twitter, that it was “good news” Mueller’s team found insufficient evidence to charge Trump with conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election. “The business of government can move on,” he said. “Even so, I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,” Romney continued.

Chief Justice John Roberts arrived at the Valletta campus of the University of Malta on July 3, 2012, to teach a class on Supreme Court history. As he emerged from the back seat of a black sedan, he held his brown leather briefcase in front of him, almost as a shield. He wore a blue blazer, striped button-down shirt, and tan khakis. His clothes looked crisp, though his face was haggard. He was as exhausted and distressed as he had been in years. Roberts had left behind a storm in Washington over his opinion upholding President Barack Obama´s health-care overhaul

Michelle Obama in an interview Saturday evening said the night before President Trump’s inauguration in January 2017 was “very emotional.” "The truth is, on that day I was moving my children out of the only house they had really grown up in,” the former first lady told Gayle King of CBS News at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. “I think that gets lost on people.” She said she was rushing to get her daughters and their friends out of the White House after they’d had a sleepover the night before the inauguration. “The girls didn't get up,” she explained.

In a Saturday interview, former first lady Michelle Obama insisted that Americans now dismiss the U.S. presidency because a black man was recently in the office. Speaking to TV host Gayle King during the 2019 Essence Festival at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Obama exclaimed that husband Barack made the presidency “look too easy,” Fox News reported.“I guess it’s kind of like if the black guy can do it, anybody can do it — and that’s not true. It’s a hard job,” Michelle told the crowd.Obama also reminded the audience that she was often portrayed as “an angry black woman who was emasculating her husband.”

Nike has withdrawn a new Independence Day-themed shoe featuring the Revolutionary War-era flag after former NFL quarterback and Nike-endorser Colin Kaepernick complained that the flag was a symbol of the slave era, according to the Wall Street Journal. Nike offered a lame excuse that it had removed the shoe from retailers because “it featured an old version of the American flag.” In fact, it featured the American flag that was actually in use in 1776 on the original Fourth of July, and it is named for the pioneering Founding Mother to whom its design is commonly attributed, Betsy Ross. As it happens, a version of that very flag

There are some things that are just not up for debate. These aren’t political issues. What happened in Florida didn’t center on MAGA hats, flag burning, or the merits of tax cuts. We actually had a high school principal question whether the Holocaust was a “historical, factual” event. The Palm Beach Post has the story. A mother of a student tried for a year to reason with the school administration to, you know, actually teach kids about this terrible period in human history without the nonsense. She wondered how this was being taught at the school. The emails between the parent and Spanish River High School Principal William Latson were

PAMPLONA, Spain— Five people were hospitalized after the opening bull run of this year’s San Fermin festival in Pamplona, including two Americans and a Spaniard who were gored by bulls, officials in the northern Spanish city said Sunday. A 46-year old man from San Francisco was gored in the neck in the city’s bullring, at the end of the 850-meter (930-yard) course. His injuries required surgery, the regional government reported. A 23-year old man from Florence, Kentucky and a 40-year-old Spanish man were both gored in the thigh. Two young Spanish men sustained head injuries. The running of the bulls in Pamplona draws about 1 million spectators every year.

On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Representative Ted Lieu (D-CA) stated the Federal Election Commission should “look into” President Trump’s July 4th event. Lieu said, “One of the big problems with Trump’s July 4th event is that it was a campaign event paid for by the American taxpayer. Not only did he divert millions of dollars to this event, he also had the Republican National Committee give out passes, VIP passes to major donors. That was outrageous. That was really a violation of our ethics and he made a mockery of our Independence Day.”
