Trump Supporters Confront Mitt Romney at Airport, Start Chanting ‘Traitor’

Supporters of President Trump confronted Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) as he sat quietly at an airport waiting area, with some chanting “traitor” on the airplane toward the former presidential candidate.

Video posted to social media shows a woman approaching Romney who is sitting by himself, demanding to know why he, like she, is not supporting the President.

“Why aren’t you supporting President Trump? You’re not supporting him,” she demands.

“I do support President Trump,” Romney replied. “I’m sorry, I do agree with many of the things he’s for and I support him.”

But when it comes to contesting the election results, the senator from Utah disagrees with the President’s strategy.

“It’s a long story but it’s a constitutional process and the constitution is clear,” Romney explains to the woman. “I will follow the constitution and I will explain all that when we meet in Congress this week.”

The Trump supporter counters that since conservatives helped elect him, he should only “represent the conservative constituents.”

“Actually, that’s not how the constitution works,” Romney replies before walking away.

 

Mitt Romney Confronted At the Airport

It’s rather clear that the Trump supporter in the above video is upset that Romney isn’t supporting the President’s bid to overturn the election results.

The harassment of Romney didn’t end in the airport waiting area either.

Another video shows people on the plane chanting “traitor” toward Senator Romney.

 

In an interview with CNN weeks ago, Romney stated that the President’s claims of election fraud are “damaging the cause of freedom and putting people’s lives at risk.”

Days later, he would argue that there was no evidence that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

“The biggest concern that I have is that people here genuinely believe that somehow this election was stolen, and there’s not evidence of that,” he conveyed.

There is, however, doubt regarding the integrity of elections, dating back many, many years.

Senator Ted Cruz recently explained, “We have an obligation to the voters and we have an obligation to the Constitution to ensure that this election was lawful.”

What is so difficult to understand here?

 

This is Abhorrent Behavior

Before going any further, I’d like to address the obvious – This is disgusting behavior and should not be condoned by anyone who proudly calls themselves a Republican or conservative.

Mitt Romney has been a disaster as a member of the GOP. As far as conservatives go, he is the Bill Kristol of John McCains.

But he doesn’t deserve to be accosted in an airport. This is behavior that the left owns a monopoly on. So congratulations to the Trump supporters in this video – you just became what you despise and you actually ginned up sympathy for the man you loathe.

Brilliant!

 

And yes, I get it. The left made the rules here.

Remember – it was Maxine Waters who told her followers to accost Republicans at the grocery store. It was leftists who attacked Sarah Sanders and Ted Cruz in a restaurant.

 

Earlier this week, Republicans were outraged when Senator Josh Hawley’s (R-MO) family was targeted by Antifa vandals and protesters who strolled on up to his front door.

Nobody should be okay with this – those who confronted Hawley or those who confronted Romney – on either side of the aisle.

Time to get a grip.
