Dems, Actors, Liberal Pundits Heaping Praise on Romney After His Impeachment Vote Announcement

 

Moments ago, Senator Mitt Romney sent shockwaves through the political world by voting with Democrats to convict President Trump.

WATCH:

Within moments of him announcing his vote to convict Trump, largely symbolic since Trump will be inevitably acquitted, Democrats, Hollywood actresses and liberal pundits flocked to Twitter to hail him a “hero.”

Alyssa Milano tweeted:

Thank you for doing what’s right,

. History will remember you as a decent, courageous, man among cowards and fools

“Corrupting an election to keep oneself in office is perhaps the most abusive and destructive violation of one’s oath of office that I can imagine.”

I agree, @MittRomney. Voting to convict this president is an act of patriotism. Thank you for yours.

During a time of great pessimism and doubt, history will remember that there was one Republican Senator with the moral courage and character to do what’s right: Mitt Romney.

I sat silently across the chamber, listening to my friend give one of the most important speeches I have ever had the good fortune to hear in person.

At a time when many wonder what honor is left in public life, there stands Mitt Romney.

It is hard to do the right thing – and even to keep sight of what the right thing is — when your system, group, and career incentives push you towards doing the wrong thing.

Mitt Romney – and Justin Amash – deserve a lot of respect for doing the right thing when it was hard.

Mitt Romney showed us today how one voice can make a difference. He articulated what most of the Republican Senators believe but are too afraid or too selfish to say or act upon. Romney validated all of the Democrats who were willing to stand up and say ENOUGH.

“I will tell my children and their children”@MittRomney has also now told history that one Republican Senator lived his oath to defend the Constitution against Donald Trump.

The decision by @MittRomney to convict @realDonaldTrump is even more significant given his past as the GOP Presidential nominee. Clearly a decision informed by his faith and moral conviction

Mitt Romney was fighting emotion as he just announced that he would vote to convict and remove Trump. Romney put America first and made the Impeachment BIPARTISAN. Trump is IMPEACHED FOREVER, EXONERATED NEVER.

Not only is Senator Mitt Romney voting to convict Trump—the only Republican to admit the sad truth about his crimes of office—but he gave an eloquent and moving speech about and he agrees.

Truth matters. Right matters.

Everyone should flood @MittRomney with donations and calls thanking him for his service to America
