Twitter moves at the speed of light and so does Trumpite outrage. Even though their savior is about to get acquitted this afternoon, the fact that one lone Republican — so far — has declared that he will vote to convict Trump on the first article of impeachment, abuse of power, has enraged Trump’s base. If there was any doubt in your mind that the GOP is now the Cult of Trump, and any defection will be sorely punished, erase that thought right now.
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.

Dear Romney, your “I’m a good Mormon” front will not save you from what is coming! Your the Carl Bruner in the movie Ghost!! Ppl will know! 🙏🏻🇺🇸🙏🏻

Everyone thinks you are a spinless hack and a stone cold loser.
I hope the Republican Caucus kicks you out immediately and the people of Utah vote to recall your pathetic, carpet bagging self.#RecallRomney

@SenatorRomney I will never vote for you again. How you could vote to convict is beyond me with the evidence at hand. As a Utah resident I will do everything in my power to keep you from getting re-elected. I have not heard you one time call out Schiff and his lies. 1termsenator!

#MittRomneyIsMyHero is also trending. Trump, by the way, canceled a press pool that he was going to hold on impeachment when he got wind of the Romney vote. Here’s what the senator said on Fox News. Heresy, pure heresy.
So much for Trump’s “total vindication” argument.
