Mitt Romney is trending today for tweeting his official reaction to the Mueller report and also for being a coward who only attacks Trump for points but doesn’t actually do anything to stop him or help people or at all act like a good person. The Utah senator and failed presidential candidate said he was “sickened” by the behavior of Trump and his cronies outlined in the report and “appalled” that those working on his campaign jumped into bed with Russia.
I have now read the redacted Mueller report and offer my personal reaction: pic.twitter.com/ACnExskqXJ

In spite of his not feeling well about all the crimes, Romney says it’s “good news” that there was “insufficient evidence to charge the President of the United States” (fact check: there is enough evidence, Mueller just decided not to indict Trump for various reasons and is leaving it up to Congress) because now we can “move on.”
It sounds like Romney will not be supporting the movement to impeach, which has already been kicked off by Elizabeth Warren. Unfortunately, a few key Democratic leaders are also not willing to get on the impeachment train, apparently because a ticket costs some courage and integrity.
Either way, absolutely no one is happy with Mitt Romney’s statement due to the fact that he’s still a Republican toady who groveled to Trump for the Secretary of State position that he didn’t get.
Remember this gem of a photo?
Romney's statement only shows what we've already seen from him before. He talks out of both sides of his mouth. One day Trump is unfit for office, and the next he's interviewing for a job in his administration. pic.twitter.com/RJNV3MaLrX

We all see you, Romney. And you’ll go down in history as one of the most despised and roasted politicians of our time.
If Mitt Romney were just a little more sickened, he'd consider furrowing his brow pensively before genuflecting to trump. https://t.co/Bi8anu3x9G

Romney then offered to kill any of his sons in a human sacrifice if Trump makes him Secretary of State https://t.co/RZwfF2dqwJ

This is the perfect Romney statement: he is "sickened" by Trump's conduct and concludes, as a U.S. Senator, there is absolutely nothing he can do about it! https://t.co/ktXOxkG8Ic

You are so full of it. Just be quiet. No one wants to hear your empty words. You’re a Trump crony til the end. Always have been, always will be. Unless you say he should resign or be impeached, shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh… ?

If you don’t primary Donald Trump or move to impeach him, you‘re a bigger shitweasel than he is. https://t.co/AAn4KDZY84

@MittRomney if you clutch your pearls any harder you’ll hurt yourself. The only thing worse than a coward is a man who stands by and does nothing because it may cost him a few votes. Every Senator who moans about the state of the nation but does nothing shares responsibility.

How sickened? “Impeachment sickened” or “write another concerned op-ed sickened”? This charade is getting old, sir.

You such a badass! I bet now you will sign everything Trunp outs in front of you but do so with a frown.

"I'm gonna wring my hands & make vague statements about morality, so that I can continue to palm myself off as a godly man." Fixed it for you.

Romney translated: I am a weakling and a coward. I want desperately to be seen doing the right thing but not if it means republicans will be mad at me. You should never expect courage or action from me. pic.twitter.com/leARbjuWGF

So what do you plan to do about it, Mitt? Or are you just another GOP enabler without conscience and without loyalty to this country?

The business of government moving on is exactly what should not happen. Nothing this crime organization posing as an administration is doing is the legitimate functioning of government.

Mitt Romney shoves both hands into the pockets of his weekend cardigan. "Donald Trump's behavior has been so disappointing," he whispers to his horse. It's the last time he'll say the President's name aloud.

“I’ve read the entire report,”
Said Senator Romney. “In short,
This admin is disgraced,
And has my continued support.”

Good news, everyone. Mitt Romney is going to not do anything about something that sickens him. https://t.co/E56QDPYsVn

Mitt Romney: I am sickened by Donald Trump's behavior and have no choice but to continue to help Trump appoint more federal judges than any president in the history of the republic.

This is the most Mitt Romney thing imaginable. Exonerating a criminal president for political purposes and then subjecting everyone to a sanctimonious lecture about leadership and duty while abdicating both leadership and duty. What a profile in cowardice. pic.twitter.com/XyI4yzYvqn

Mitt Romney is so sickened by Trump's criminality that it's going to make him just sick to his stomach to continue voting for everything Trump wants.

Romney is so angry at Trump right now, he can hardly even enjoy his Twinkie cake.

Romney is "sickened". If only he were one of the most powerful US Senators… https://t.co/qKxIdrQYzp

If the only result of the Mueller report is that it separates the cowards from the people who actually care about this country and its people, that’s not so bad.
