Romney Facing Calls to Be Removed from the Republican Party

Thursday, during his acquittal victory speech, President Trump blasted Utah Senator Mitt Romney as a “failed Presidential candidate” who uses “religion as a crutch.”

“I’ve never heard him use it before, but today you know it’s one of those things.” Trump proclaimed.

“But you know, it’s a failed presidential candidate so things can happen when you fail so badly running for president.”

Mitt Romney was the only Republican Senator to vote alongside Democrats to convict Trump, a largely symbolic vote since conviction had no chance of passing.

Romney told Chris Wallace “I do believe he should be removed from office” and defended his vote to convict Trump.

WATCH:

Meanwhile, Donald Trump Jr. called for just the opposite – for Mitt Romney to be removed from office.

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.

Rep. Lee Zeldin tweeted:

Mitt Romney absolutely despises that Donald Trump was elected POTUS & he was not. The sore loser mentality launched this sham impeachment & corruptly rigged & jammed it through the House. It looks like Schiff recruited himself a sore loser buddy on the GOP side to play along.

Rick Gorka, former Press Secretary for Romney accused him of acting out of bitterness and jealousy.

Per TCO, During a blistering segment, Laura Ingraham called on Mitt Romney to resign and threatened to consider personally moving to Utah to run against him if he won’t.

Per Fox News, Laura called Romney “the ultimate selfish, preening, self-centered politician.”

“If he were up for reelection this year, the people of Utah would have their own payback against him because they were defrauded by Romney. For when he had to choose, he chose [Charles] Schumer and Kamala [Harris] over common sense and conservatism,” Ingraham said. “If you’re one of Romney’s constituents in Utah, you’re out of luck. If you’re a business in need of a regulation reexamined, don’t bother calling his office. He has no power anymore.”

Ingraham brought up Romney’s previous presidential runs saying, “we thought you’d be better for America and the way you repay millions of people, the millions who did vote for you in 2012 is to throw in with the very people who don’t share our goals, who hate us. And by the way, who still hate you.”

“Like all the other bitter ‘Never Trumpers’, he’d rather see the entire American economy go down the drain than give Trump a victory,” Ingraham said.

“Mitt, you made your stand. Now should you should resign. You committed a fraud on the people of Utah, on the Republican Party, on the Constitution, and a thoroughly embarrassed yourself,” Ingraham said. “If I have to move there to run against him in four and a half years, I will.”

WATCH:

Is recalling Mitt Romney actually possible? It may not be now but could be if a new bill passes.

Per TCO, Utah State rep. Tim Quinn has introduced a bill to state legislature that would allow voters to recall U.S. Senators.

While Quinn says the bill isn’t targeted at anyone in particular, Fox News speculates it could be a possible swipe at Utah Senator Mitt Romney.

Fox News reports Republican Utah state Rep. Tim Quinn has introduced a bill in that state’s legislature that would allow voters to recall U.S. senators — a possible swipe at Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, despite Quinn saying the bill isn’t targeted at anyone in particular.

First reported by Deseret News, the bill would create a process by which a recall vote could go on the ballot after a petition by voters.

“I know that’s what’s going to be the narrative,” Quinn told the Deseret News when asked if the bill was aimed at Romney, the sitting GOP senator whose current term doesn’t expire until 2025. “If it were, then it might make sense to have a sunset on it. That would not be the case.”

“Six years is a long time,” he said, according to the Deseret News.
