Mitt Romney goes back and forth about whether or not he supports the president, and while it’s pretty pathetic behavior, liberals are happy about the things he does choose to speak up about. Like the coronavirus outbreak in the Unite States. The declared pandemic has made its way around the country, and the president is still nowhere near prepared to handle the sick and dying.
Romney spoke up about that Thursday afternoon when reporters caught him outside of an elevator. This is what Romney had to say about Trump:
Question: "Are you satisfied with the testing that's happening in the country based on what you've just heard?"
Sen. Mitt Romney: "No. I think a lot of people like myself are concerned that we don't have the level of testing that you've seen in other countries." pic.twitter.com/9Hkylw1U3B

It’s a totally logical conclusion based on what we’ve seen about foreign responses to the outbreak, yet Republicans are still backing the president 100 percent. According to CBS News:
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top expert on infectious diseases and has served as scientific adviser for every president since Ronald Reagan, spoke before a House Oversight Meeting on Thursday that the coronavirus testing system is a “failing.” Hours after those remarks, he spoke to “CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell.
People on Twitter were in agreement with Mitt that the president was in way over his head, and that people were likely going to continue dying because of it. Check out the responses left on The Hill’s tweet below:
