Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) showed Americans what courage and heroism look like on Wednesday before the Senate vote on Donald J. Trump’s impeachment. Courage is not being fearless. It is doing the right thing in spite of the fear. History will look kindly up him. On the other hand, Trump’s son Don Jr. only learned grifting at his father’s knee.
Immediately after the former governor, former presidential candidate, son of a governor — all in the Republican Party gave his heartfelt speech, Don Jr. jumped out from behind his stuffed animals and tried to chew on the senator.
If cheating and bringing in one of the nation’s Cold War enemies to win at any cost was the only way to become POTUS, then Romney would not be part of that sleazy crowd. No, he was true to his convictions and fully aware of the consequences when he cast his lone vote of guilty to remove the president:
‘Mitt Romney is forever bitter that he will never be POTUS. He was too weak to beat the Democrats then so he’s joining them now. He’s now officially a member of the resistance & should be expelled from the @GOP.’
The Republican Party that Romney belonged to may no longer exist. Now, the Party of Trump with all its crass, crude attitude and belief the voters were all suckers have taken over the rest of the group. Count them one-by-one as they vote their lack of conscience.
As if Don Jr. had any right to “expel” the former governor whose moral compass is stuck on “honor.” The president’s son must think that killing endangered mountain sheep with enhanced technology was not a display of weakness. No, he was colorblind and did not realize that the yellow, coward’s line ran down his own back.
Mitt Romney stood strong and yes, he resisted the cruel, the emotionless, the ugly underbelly of his colleagues. That was not the resistance. No, it was resisting the malevolent.
Twitter world lit up all over the president’s eldest son. He clearly climbed too high on the Christmas tree. Check out these responses.
