President Trump supporters confronted Senator Mitt Romney on Tuesday as the group was on their way to Washington DC’s “Stop the Steal” rally.
A woman met the senator to talk about his total betrayal of the president before boarding. Romney, in turn, whined about the woman not wearing a face cover.
“Don’t tell me what to do,” the woman shot back at the senator.
“Please put your mask on. You’re required by law to put your mask on in this airport,” Sen. Romney said as the woman noted she was within six feet from him.
She continued, “Ok, I am going to go ahead and do it because I want to have a chat with you. Why aren’t you supporting President Trump?”
Romney then claimed he supports President Trump’s agenda in general, which appears as a blatant lie. When pressed that he didn’t support the president in the election, Romney admitted his misgivings.
Romney also faced a backlash from other Trump supporters after boarding the flight.
“TRAITOR, TRAITOR, TRAITOR,” yelled the mob.
“We want to know your connection to Burisma and Joe Biden, Mitt Romney,” yelled one woman, adding that the senator doesn’t listen to his constituents.
The senator made it extremely clear to side with the left party for the January 6 electoral vote.
Romney said that rejecting electors may boost some’s political ambition but would dangerously threaten the Democratic Republic.
However, other Republican senators would be making a stand.
On Saturday, a group of GOP senators planned to challenge the certification of results from the Electoral College on January 6. Sen. Ted Cruz purportedly led the effort, demanding a 10-day emergency audit of the recent election’s results.
Cruz and other senators claim that the Election Day result “featured unprecedented allegations of voter fraud and illegal conduct.
”According to Fox News, the effort is separate from Sen. Josh Hawley’s announcement to object to the failure of some states in following their own election laws, particularly Pennsylvania.
The 10-day emergency audit cites the 1877 race between Rutherford Hayes and Samuel Tilden as precedence, in which fraud allegations were reported in several states.
“In 1877, Congress did not ignore those allegations, nor did the media simply dismiss those raising them as radicals trying to undermine democracy,” said the lawmakers. At the time, Congress appointed an Electoral Commission, which consisted of five supreme court justices, five senators, and five house members to resolve the disputed returns.
Should the efforts be scrapped, the lawmakers would vote against the certification of results.
“Accordingly, we intend to vote on January 6 to reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified’ (the statutory requisite), unless and until that emergency 10-day audit is completed,” the senators continued.
They concluded that each of us should act together to ensure a lawfully conducted election under the Constitution and do everything to restore our faith in our Democracy.
