‘Worthless’ ‘coward’ Mitt Romney scorched for ‘hoping’ Trump’s Syria withdrawal ‘does not lead to even greater loss of life’

Published

on

U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) is getting scorched after posting a tweet many see as incredibly weak and unproductive in the face of President Donald Trump’s abrupt withdrawal of American military forces from Northern Syria. Trump’s move “blindsided” the Pentagon and has already resulted in the death of at least seven Kurdish civilians.

“Reports indicate Turkey is predictably attacking the Kurdish allies we abandoned,” tweeted Senator Romney, who sits on the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. “It’s a tragic loss of life among friends shamefully betrayed. We can only hope the President’s decision does not lead to even greater loss of life and a resurgence of ISIS.”

The Senator from Utah is a Republican party elder and considered a senior statesman, having been the GOP presidential nominee and a governor.

Romney is also the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Near East, South Asia, Central Asia and Counterterrorism, which means Trump’s move is entirely in Romney’s wheelhouse, and he has the power to do more than “hope.”

Many clearly expected more, and were not shy about making that clear. Some used the opportunity to insist Romney actively support Trump’s impeachment, while others scolded him for not taking a stronger stance.

Take a look:

Actually, no, Mitt.

You can do more than hope. You can take steps to remove him from office. https://t.co/OEdGAhZaQG

It’s really too bad our founders didn’t give Congress a sweeping array of powers to prevent a tyrant from abusing the office of the president. https://t.co/JYhYeOH7In

Yes all we can do is hope. If only there were someone in a position to hold him accountable.

Goddamn Mittens. You are such a cowardly little bitch. It’s truly pathetic. https://t.co/Jkt35ylRYr

Maybe if you called your Utah Senator, Mike Lee, he could help you? https://t.co/hOPgJpn8ZW

We can only hope? Wait, aren’t you also a senator, or is that just on Twitter? https://t.co/kqQZ9V8SuS

You can only hope, huh?

Yup. Thats the @gop for you.

You could have at least typed “thoughts and prayers.” https://t.co/dLrwT1o3Ef

No. We can do more than “only hope.” Impeach. https://t.co/gxUhbS193g

More “Profiles in Chickenshit”, courtesy of @SenatorRomney. His worthless statements won’t save a single Kurdish life. If ISIS reemerges, every single @GOP member should be held accountable. They could remove this malignant actor, & they refuse. “Thoughts & prayers”, right? https://t.co/WR9qiBLQP3

Hope is a very low state. It’s what one does in lieu of taking action. Trust is oh so much better than hope.

I TRUST you will take the action to REMOVE #littlemantrump
from office before hope and trust are destroyed https://t.co/yuaQGNxCOm

Actually, Senator, you can do a fuck of a lot more than hope!!!!! https://t.co/BkzPWS424b

It’s Donald Trump vs Joe Biden: Associate Press reports former VP has clinched the DNC nomination

Published

on

The 2020 general election campaign between two top parties has unofficially been set.

"Joe Biden formally clinched the Democratic presidential nomination Friday, setting him up for a bruising challenge to President Donald Trump that will play out against the unprecedented backdrop of a pandemic, economic collapse and civil unrest," the AP reported Friday. "The former vice president has effectively been his party’s leader since his last challenger in the Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders, ended his campaign in April. But Biden pulled together the 1,991 delegates needed to become the nominee after seven states and the District of Columbia held presidential primaries Tuesday."

On Friday, President Donald Trump retweeted a video from right-wing commentator Glenn Beck, which appeared to question the wisdom of calling George Floyd a "hero" — and concurring with Black GOP commentator Candace Owens, who said it "sickens me" he is being "held up as a martyr."
