Utah Senator Mitt Romney was stunned.
Never in his life had something like this took place.
Mitt Romney stood in front of a crowd and then the most unbelievable thing happened.
Senator Romney addressed the Utah state GOP convention.
It did not go well.
As the Founding Father of the Never Trump movement took the stage to deliver his remarks the crowd in attendance loudly booed Romney, and the Utah Senator was clearly taken aback.
“You can boo all you like.” Romney stated. “I’ve been a Republican all of my life. My dad was the governor of Michigan and I was the Republican nominee for president in 2012.”
The audience’s boos escalated with some in the crowd shouting “traitor” and “communist.”
Romney lashed out at the crowd bragging about how harshly he smeared Donald Trump and his character.
“Aren’t you embarrassed?” Romney sneered at the crowd. “I’m a man who says what he means, and you know I was not a fan of our last president’s character issues.”
At the conclusion of his speech, Romney raced out of the Maverik Center before the delegates voted on a resolution to censure Romney for his two votes to convict Donald Trump in both of the Democrats partisan impeachment trials.
That resolution narrowly failed.
But avoiding censure was not a saving grace for Romney who clearly heard from the party faithful how infuriated they are that Romney spends all his time in Washington attacking Donald Trump and conservatives while not doing anything to fight Joe Biden and his socialist agenda.
Conservatives by and large supported Mitt Romney when he ran against Barack Obama in 2012 even though Romney holds very liberal views in issues like the Second Amendment and abortion.
In that race Romney pulled his punches and rarely criticized Obama.
Since losing that election, Romney turned into a full-time critic of Donald Trump and the conservatives that voted for him.
Romney essentially supported Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden by opposing Donald Trump.
Romney marched with Black Lives Matter after the controversial group looted and torched American cities.
And Romney’s ignored Antifa’s violence and domestic terrorism while supporting the left’s effort to smear conservatives as white supremacists.
Romney was looked at as a hero in Utah.
Nearly 20 years ago Romney took over organizing duties for the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics after the games were rocked by a bribery scandal.
Romney turned the effort around and those Winter Olympics were looked at like a model for how an Olympic games should be run.
But Romney has clearly squandered most of that good will with GOP voters by consistently punching right by trying to assist the Democrats’ efforts to overturn the results of the 2016 election.
