Donald Trump Jr. called Utah Sen. Mitt Romney a “coward” and a “flip-flopper” after Romney became the only Republican to vote to convict President Donald Trump in the impeachment trial on Wednesday.
Trump Jr. blasted Romney as “jealous” that he didn’t make it to the presidency and as someone more worried about the press’s approval than anything else.
Host Tucker Carlson also pointed out that Romney’s conduct with his company Bain Capital might preclude him from making moral judgments on anyone else.
While Romney’s decision was clearly motivated by animus toward Trump, and was hypocritical as well after Romney sought Trump’s endorsement for his Senate run in 2016, I don’t think it’s even worth the Trump family’s time to attack him for it.
His approval rating in Utah is already dropping like a stone, and I have the feeling his constituents will punish him more soundly than Trump Jr. or even the president could ever do.
