There is a time and place, not to mention good reasons, to confront a politician in public. When it was revealed that Donald Trump’s administration was separating immigrant children from their families as punishment for entering the country illegally, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was confronted outside a restaurant by protesters. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Advisor Jason Miller, and Department of Homeland Defense Secretary Kirstjen Nelson were asked to leave restaurants and confronted by angry citizens. Caging babies and removing them from their families, many permanently, is a moral wrong and lawmakers deserve to be confronted for failing to act on those policies.

Trump supporters, many of whom decried those confrontations, are now ready to confront some politicians of their own. The problem is this: confronting a politician massless during a global pandemic because he won’t violate the Constitution to overturn a democratic election and install the president they want doesn’t make one a patriot or a concerned American.
Romney was cornered by a massless woman at an airport on his way to Washington, D.C. to confirm the electors chosen by the American people who will officially cast their votes according to the will of the people in their state. Romney explained to the rude, angry woman that he has supported Trump on policies with which he agrees but will not support an effort to thwart the Constitution and that he was elected to represent all the people of Utah, not just the Republicans who cast their ballots for him. Not only did the woman pursue him in the airport, Romney was then treated to a plane full of Trump supporters who annoyingly chanted the word “traitor” at him throughout the flight.
Twitter had a lot to say about the confrontation Romney faced with the increasingly crazed Trump supporters. Read some of their comments below:
