Romney: Trump’s return would likely make ‘malady of denial, deceit and distrust’ in US ‘incurable’

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Monday said that former President Trump’s return to office would feed into the “national malady of denial, deceit, and distrust” that the senator said President Biden has not been able to break through.

In an opinion piece published in The Atlantic, Romney said that many Americans on both sides of the aisle are continuing to dismiss various threats against the country, including inflation, global climate change, illegal immigration and water insecurity in the West. He cited the reactions of “MAGA loyalists” to the recent congressional hearings on the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol as another such example of Americans’ denial.


“If we continue to ignore the real threats we face, America will inevitably suffer serious consequences,” Romney wrote.

The Republican senator called Biden a “genuinely good man,” though he said the president has not been able to resolve the nation’s dismissal of serious issues, then warned that the possible return of Trump could inflate that denial beyond repair.

Romney was "honest", he said that under him the jobs weren't coming back.

I believe that the democrats are every bit are responsible for the denial, deceit, and distrust in this country as Trump or anyone else is, maybe more so. IOW, nobody has the high moral ground here.

Romney is a meat puppet RINO shill for the UNiparty masters that only does as he's told.
He's the Senate version of Liz Cheney.
I trust him less than a few Dems

After seeing what Trump was capable of as a President, I can't believe we actually ran Romney a few years ago. Same with McCain.

What the hell were we thinking back then?

Spot on, Sen. Romney, spot on.

Truth is, it may be too late already.

In a nutshell the freaking idiot illustrated his distrust of the Constitution and the American people. That seems to be the history of elitist politicians who live off confiscated taxpayer dollars.

Democrats are the ones ignoring the real threats to America. They are the real threats to America.

Trusting Democrats is pure stupidity.

Every single word Romney said about Trump in 2016 turned out to be true.

Hopefully, he'll rub your noses in it every chance he gets.

Romney should run as a 3rd party candidate in 2024, if he is really serious and disagrees with Biden.

Romney himself didn't believe what he said in 2016 during the campaign.

In fact, in the months after the campaign, he went to Trump Tower to beg for a job in the Administration. Later, he begged for the Trumpster endorsement for the Senate- and stabbed him benefactor in the back not once but twice in repayment.

I remember standing on line to vote on those occasions.....It was akin to visiting night at a funeral home.

Did Romney ever take back what he said about Trump? Nope.
