It's OVER For Mitt Romney: Take A Look At Crowd's Epic Response To The Rhino's Speech
Wealthy Rhino Senator Mitt Romney of Utah is an excellent example to all politicians on how to not get votes. The self-absorbed politician took endorsements from President Trump to win his current position only to virtually spit in Trump's face to please Democrats. Romney was hit with hecklers Saturday who booed him relentlessly and called the Rhino a 'traitor'.
Romney, one of the most prominent Republican critics of former President Donald Trump, appeared before 2,145 registered delegates at the Maverik Center in the Salt Lake City suburb of West Valley City. As Romney walked up to the lectern to speak, he was loudly booed by the Republican crowd. There were also cheers for the former Republican presidential nominee, but the chorus of jeers seemed to drown them out as heard in videos posted online.
Romney attempted to appease the partly hostile crowd, "So, what do you think about President Biden's first 100 days?"
"Now you know me as a person who says what he thinks and I don't hide the fact that I wasn't a fan of our last president's character issues," Romney told the audience, which in turn booed him even more intensely.
Romney then asked the crowd, "Aren't you embarrassed?"
The booing and heckling lasted over a minute, which prompted Utah GOP chair Derek Brown to intervene by walking up on stage and say, "My friends, this is the moment I was talking about, please show respect." The crowd then applauded and Romney went back to delivering his speech at the GOP event.

Saying the president committed "an appalling abuse of the public trust," Romney voted to convict President Donald Trump on the first article of impeachment, becoming the first senator ever to vote against his own party's president in an impeachment trial.
"This verdict is ours to render," Romney said in his speech on the Senate floor, just casting his vote. "The grave question the Constitution tasks senators to answer is whether the president committed an act so extreme and egregious that it rises to the level of a 'high crime and misdemeanor.' Yes, he did."

Back in January, Romney admitted that he knew his vote to impeach Trump would not make a difference. This only further proved he was just pandering to Democrats and what he believed was a change in power. A move that will not get him reelected and his buddies across the aisle aren't likely to help him keep his position.
