Twitter Mocks Mitt Romney's Asinine WaPo Op-Ed

Romney approves of Trump's policy positions but has issues with Trump's character. Move over, Jeff Flake.

On Tuesday, the Washington Post published an op-ed by the incoming senator (and erstwhile presidential candidate) that more or less championed Trump's policy decisions (cutting corporate taxes a personal favorite of the corporate-raider Romney) while lamenting Trump's character flaws.

Here at C&L, Karoli has already posted about how disingenuous this all is, that we've seen it all before by outgoing senator Jeff Flake. Republicans who tut-tut at Trump but vote in lockstep with him every friggin' time.

The Internet was having none of Mitt Romney's self-serving bullshit.

Even some conservatives weren't buying what Romney was selling.

Romney did find a fan in at least one of them though.
