During an interview with Chris Wallace, Republican Senator Mitt Romney admitted he would most likely be ostracized from the party for voting to convict President Trump.
“Yeah, it’s going to get very lonely,” Romney said. “And again, the consequences are significant. … There has not been a morning since this process began that I slept beyond 4 a.m.”
However if it’s any consolation to him, Hollywood celebrities are heaping praise on the Utah Senator for his vote.
Here are 8 “big names” that thanked Romney for his vote.
Thank you @MittRomney for putting #CountryOverParty & voting your conscience. Is there any doubt the outcome would have been much different had it been a secret ballot? #CowardlyGOP #HistoryIsWatching

Thank you @SenatorRomney for your political courage and for honoring your oath to the Constitution. Your colleagues will not be kindly looked upon in the history books of tomorrow.

Mitt Romney shows us all is not lost: ““My own view is that there’s not much I can think of that would be a more egregious assault on our Constitution than trying to corrupt an election to maintain power. And that’s what the president did.” https://t.co/lti4BhVcLi
