Did Mitt Romney betray his party and vote with Democrats to convict because he’s bitter and jealous that Donald Trump defeated Hillary while he lost to Obama?
That’s what his former press secretary Rick Gorka believes is the case.
The Hill reports former press secretary of Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-Utah) 2012 presidential campaign called his decision to convict President Trump on the impeachment charge of abuse of power “motivated by bitterness and jealousy.”
TheHill reports Rick Gorka, who is now a communications director for the Republican National Committee (RNC), tweeted Wednesday that Trump “accomplished what he [Romney] has failed to do multiple times.”
“These are the same people that hated Mitt in 2012 and they will hate him again when they are done with him,” he added. “It is sad to see that Mitt has not learned the lessons from 2012. Now he has betrayed his Party and millions of voters.”
Gorka’s comments come amid a wave of pushback from the GOP.
The president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., also claimed that Romney was bitter toward the president, and called for him to be expelled from the Senate GOP conference.
Mitt Romney is forever bitter that he will never be POTUS. He was too weak to beat the Democrats then so he’s joining them now.
He’s now officially a member of the resistance & should be expelled from the @GOP.
