Trump Publicly Embarrasses Mitt Romney After Mitt Accused Him Of Threatening Democracy

“The firings of multiple Inspectors General is unprecedented; doing so without good cause chills the independence essential to their purpose. It is a threat to accountable democracy and a fissure in the constitutional balance of power,” Mitt Romney said as he stabbed Trump in the back. But that is not all – Romney has been trashing Trump for days.

“I understand the politicians are going to frame data in a way that’s most positive politically. Of course, I don’t expect that from admirals,” the Mitt Romney said as he basically accused the Trump administration of misleading the American people.

“But yesterday, you celebrated that we had done more tests and more tests per capita even in South Korea,” he told Admiral Brett Giroir, a top Department of Health and Human Services official. “I find our testing record nothing to celebrate whatsoever.”

“You ignored the fact that they accomplished theirs at the beginning of the outbreak while we treaded water during February and March. And as a result, by 6 March, the US had completed just 2,000 tests, whereas South Korea had conducted more than 140,000 tests,” he said before adding, “So, partially as a result of that, they have 256 deaths and we have almost 80,000 deaths.”

Romney then defended Obama:

“My impression is that, with regards to vaccines, where I’m critical of what we have done at testing, at vaccines we’ve done a pretty darn good job of moving ahead pretty aggressively,” said Romney. “And yet the president said the other day that President Obama is responsible for our lack of a vaccine.”

“Dr. Fauci, is President Obama, or by extension President Trump, did they do something that made the likelihood of creating a vaccine less likely?” he asked “Are either President Trump or President Obama responsible for the fact that we don’t have a vaccine now, or in delaying it in some way?”

Fauci said, “No, senator. Not at all. Certainly, President Obama nor President Trump are responsible for our not having a vaccine.”

Today Trump hit back and silenced turncoat Mitt Romney and publicly humiliated him: “Loser”
