Trump Jokes About Romney in Self-Quarantine: ‘Gee, That’s Too Bad’

President Trump couldn’t resist taking a jab at Mitt Romney after hearing the news that Utah’s Senator would have to self-quarantine.

Romney announced that he would have to take the responsible action upon learning that Senator Rand Paul had become the first of his colleagues to test positive for coronavirus.

He had been in close proximity to Paul recently.

“Since Senator Romney sat next to Senator Paul for extended periods in recent days and consistent with CDC guidance, the attending physician has ordered him to immediately self-quarantine and not to vote on the Senate floor,” Romney’s office said in a statement.

Trump’s Response

President Trump learned of Romney’s self-quarantine through a White House reporter who noted four senators in total had moved to isolate.

“Romney, Senator Lee, Senator Gardner and Senator Rick Scott, also,” the reporter conveyed. “Two of them were in contact …”

“Romney is in isolation?” Trump interrupted. “Gee, that’s too bad. Go ahead.”

Media Will Blow It Out of Proportion

The reporter responded to Trump’s comment asking, “Do I detect Sarcasm there, sir?”

“No, none whatsoever,” Trump replied.

While the media would like you to think that Trump’s alleged sarcasm is downplaying the seriousness of the virus, he isn’t.

He’s referring to the precautionary measures numerous Americans have taken when in proximity to somebody who has been exposed to coronavirus.

There is no indication Romney is suffering from any symptoms. In fact, his statement adds that “he has no symptoms.”

 

Romney Criticized Trump romney self quarantine trump

Late last month, Romney took a jab at President Trump claiming he was unprepared for the coronavirus crisis.

“I’m very disappointed in the degree to which we’ve prepared for a pandemic, both in terms of protective equipment and in terms of medical devices that would help people once they are infected,” Romney criticized.

In reality, the President was already taking action in trying to quell the spread of the virus.

 

He took those steps despite a looming impeachment trial.

Perhaps if Romney hadn’t joined his Democrat buddies in becoming the only Republican senator to break party lines and vote in favor of Trump being impeached, he could have focused his efforts on advising the President or working with the administration to solve this problem.
