On Wednesday, following President Donald Trump's refusal to commit to upholding the peaceful transition of power in the November election, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) pushed back on the president's remarks, calling them "unthinkable" and "unacceptable."

But Romney's criticism wasn't seen as sincere by many commenters on social media — especially considering that Romney already enthusiastically supported moving forward with a Trump Supreme Court nomination, and the president explicitly said he wanted to fill the seat so the Court would let him contest the election.
