Mitt Romney the RINO is probably one of the biggest Trump haters who isn’t a Democrat, with only Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger getting anywhere close to Romeny’s immense and absurd Trump hatred.
Well, despite all he’s done to try and stop Teflon Don, the Trump Train is as unstoppable as ever and Romney was forced to make a humiliating admission about that to Politico, saying that not only is Trump unstoppable, but that those who get in his way tend to get blasted to bits by the MAGA movement. Politico, reporting on that conversation, said:
while Romney twice voted to convict Trump in impeachment trials, speaking out against him more than any other sitting GOP senator, the Utah Republican also concluded that anyone who argues the former president is fading away is not tethered to reality.
“I don’t delude myself into thinking I have a big swath of the Republican Party,” Romney said in a Wednesday interview. “It’s hard to imagine anything that would derail his support. So if he wants to become the nominee in ‘24, I think he’s very likely to achieve that.”
And Romney would know. As the premier Trump hater in the GOP, he receives quite a bit of flack from real conservatives, with Mediaite reporting that things have gotten so bad for Romney that he tries to disguise himself when leaving his house in Florida:
A Trump 2024 bid would likely mean more of Romney trying to go incognito while on vacation in Florida. According to the new book This Will Not Pass (via Insider), Romney has regularly worn hats while out and about in Palm Beach — where he has a vacation home — in an effort not to be recognized by MAGA fans.
The Trump Train is unstoppable, no matter how many foolish RINOs get in his way; he has a unique ability to just blow them off the tracks.
And though Trump isn’t in office right now, his train is still rolling and he’s still highly influential, mainly due to his hold on the MAGA base and the effect that his endorsements can have on races where the MAGA contingent is strong.
Jim Jordan, speaking about that, said “There’s never been an endorsement in American history that has the political punch that President Trump’s endorsement has.”
Indeed. Most recently that could be seen in Ohio, where JD Vance dominated the GOP primary election for the open Senate seat, brushing aside the Conservative, Inc. candidate that Ted Cruz had backed after being buoyed by a critical Trump endorsement, as clear a sign as any that the GOP base still stands on the side of Trump and his favored sons.
Though there are occasional races that don’t go Trump’s way, such as the gubernatorial primary in Georgia, where RINO Brian Kemp is beating the Trump-backed David Perdue, Trump’s grip on the party is generally tight, and Romney is, for once, right: Trump can’t be stopped!
