Ex-Clinton Impeachment Manager Reveals Real Reason Mitt Romney Voted To Convict Trump

By PoliZette Staff | February 8, 2020

Bob Barr, who was the impeachment manager for former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial, just sat down with The Daily Caller to discuss the failed impeachment effort from the left against Donald Trump.

During the interview, Barr gave his thoughts on Senator Mitt Romney’s (R-UT.) vote to convict Trump of impeachable offenses in the impeachment trial. Romney was the only Republican to break party lines in voting to convict Trump. Barr quickly made it clear that he had no respect for Romney’s vote, saying that it was all about the senator’s own ego.

“He’s putting himself over everything else, I think this was an ego trip for him, he hates Trump and he thinks this will help himself look saintly by having voted against President Trump,” said Barr.

This comes after Rick Gorka, who was a spokesman for Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, wrote on Twitter that the senator’s vote against Trump was motivated by “bitterness and jealousy.”

“I believe Mitt Romney is motivated by bitterness and jealously that Donald Trump accomplished what he has failed to do multiple times,” Gorka tweeted. “His desire to pander to the chattering class has gotten the best of him…again.”

Not stopping there, Gorka pointed out how pathetic it is that Romney is now pandering to the very people who stopped him from fulfilling his dream of becoming president back in 2012.

“These are the same people that hated Mitt in 2012 and they will hate him again when they are done with him,” he added. “It is sad to see that Mitt has not learned the lessons from 2012. Now he has betrayed his Party and millions of voters.”

Romney’s vote to convict Trump was indeed pathetic. He knew that there was no chance Trump would actually be impeached, and he also knew that his constituents did not want the president to be impeached, yet he voted to convict him anyway because of his own Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Romney will go down in history as a traitor to the Republican Party for what he did this week.

Actor James Woods is Back on Twitter, Immediately Wrecks AOC, Hillary, and Mitt Romney

Conservative actor James Woods, after a nearly 10-month hiatus, is back on Twitter, and he immediately went off on a host of liberal politicians as only he can.

Woods, best known for his roles in the films Once Upon a Time in America and Casino, made his triumphant return to the social media platform by making a mockery of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Sharing a video of the New York socialist arguing before Congress that the common phrase ‘pull yourself up by your bootstraps’ is a literal impossibility, Woods announced he was back.

“I’ve tried so hard this past year to live without the wealth of knowledge available on Twitter, but this kind of blazing insight can be found nowhere else, so… I’m back!” he explained.

Woods added the hashtag “#AOCStillAMoron.”

Hillary, Warren, and Mitt Too

While most mere mortals would have rested on their laurels (Wait, laurels? Somebody ask AOC if it’s literally possible to sleep on shrubs), Woods fired off a number of other gems to entertain the masses.

Sharing a report that several women of color had abandoned presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren’s campaign, Woods wrote: “Not enough room in the Warren TeePee for women of color? Not a surprise, considering what a liar and hypocrite she has been since, well, forever…”

Woods shared a post by Hillary Clinton regarding the impeachment witch hunt of President Trump and needled her over her epic election loss.

“You, of course, will never be impeached,” he surmised. “One up side to being the most famous loser in American history.”

Even Senator Mitt Romney, who recently was the only Republican to vote in favor of convicting President Trump during the impeachment trial, was unable to escape Woods’ wrath.

“This is the guy who passes a silent stinker in the elevator and then proceeds to lecture everybody about intestinal management,” he said of Romney. “You’ll never come back from this one, Mittens. Even your magic pants won’t save you.”

Let’s Keep Him on Twitter

Woods is a favorite of conservatives on Twitter because he is the rare Republican residing in the liberal cesspool of Hollywood and he rarely, rarely holds back on his feelings.

He has often tried baiting Hillary into making another run against Trump in 2020 because he knows she’d be a three-time Presidential loser.

Clinton, it has been reported, would not refuse the role of vice president should it be offered.

Woods’ history of completely annihilating liberals on social media is the stuff of legend.

Here are some examples:

That time he hammered Michelle Obama for claiming women somehow let Trump become President.

His response to Obama claiming the toughest part about being First Lady was enduring the racism.

As well as some brutal mockery of Maxine Waters.

Woods was suspended from Twitter in April under the guise of “targetted harassment,” an oft-used excuse by the social media platform to censor conservatives.

In May, he announced that he was fed up with repeated attempts to censor his comments and said he had no intention of using Twitter again.

We’re glad he changed his mind. Stick around for a while, eh Mr. Woods? Things are just starting to get interesting as the election draws near.

Meghan McCain Shuts Down Whoopi Goldberg When She Tries To Compare Mitt Romney To John McCain

By PopZette Staff | February 6, 2020

An awkward moment took place on the ABC talk show “The View” this morning when Whoopi Goldberg tried to compare Mitt Romney, R-UT., to the late Arizona Senator John McCain. She was then immediately shut down by her cohost Meghan McCain, the deceased Republican’s daughter.

On Wednesday, Romney was the only Republican senator to break party lines by voting to convict President Trump on impeachment charges. While “The View’s” panel discussed this, Goldberg said that Romney’s actions reminded her of McCain.

“I’m just glad somebody stood up and said ‘no,’” Goldberg said. ”I’m going to give faith in him like I gave to your dad.”

Meghan, however, was not having any of it.

“With all due respect, Mitt Romney is nothing like my dad,” she fired back.

Undeterred, Goldberg continued to try and make this point, saying Romney deserves the same credit McCain would have gotten.

“I don’t agree with Mitt Romney but he stood up in a way that nobody else has, except for your dad,” Goldberg said.

“Don’t put all your bets on Romney right now, he will break your heart like he always does,” Meghan replied.

“I’m 63 years old,” Goldberg said to her cohost. “I have been going through this with these people for years.”

McCain then said that it was “very dismissive” for Goldberg to bring up age.

“I don’t know what my age has to do with my political perspective right now. I just don’t think it’s very nice,” she told the liberal.

The two continued to go back and forth until their cohost Joy Behar interrupted to say that she “hates” Trump. How original!

Considering the fact that Romney betrayed the entire Republican Party yesterday due to his own jealousy and bitterness, it’s understandable that Meghan does not want him being compared to her father. Shame on Goldberg for trying to make this comparison, and good for Meghan for not letting her get away with it.

Republicans Call for Romney to be Removed from GOP

Republicans across the board are calling for Sen. Mitt Romney to be kicked out of the GOP for voting to convict President Trump on Wednesday.

“Forever Bitter That He Will Never be POTUS”

Senator Romney voted to convict President Trump of an abuse of power in his office. Romney said that not voting to convict the President would “expose my character to history’s rebuke,” adding that he will “tell my children and their children that I did my duty to the best of my ability, believing that my country expected it of me.”

The President’s oldest son Donald Trump Jr. said on Twitter that Romney was “forever bitter that he will never be POTUS,” and is now “officially a member of the resistance & should be expelled from the GOP.” Andrew Surabian, a former White House advisor agreed, and added “#ExpelMitt.”

Representative Lee Zeldin of New York tweeted that Romney “absolutely despises that Donald Trump was elected POTUS & he was not,” and that the senator has a “sore loser mentality.”

Ronna McDaniel, the GOP Chairwoman, and Romney’s niece, slammed him on Twitter, saying that it wasn’t “the first time I have disagreed with Mitt, and I imagine it will not be the last. The bottom line is President Trump did nothing wrong, and the Republican Party is more united than ever behind him.”

Romney Must Go!

In Utah, a bill designed to allow citizens to recall sitting senators was already going through the legislature when Romney decided to vote for impeachment. HB217 was filed by Utah Rep. Tim Quinn – if 25% of active Utah voters signed a petition to recall a senator, then a recall question would be placed on the next ballot.

“Obviously I didn’t open this bill file after he made some of that news with impeachment, it would have never been drafted this quickly,” Quinn told The Deseret News. “So I can understand why people might think that, but if they understood the legislative process, this was well before that.”

It picked up a huge amount of traction from lawmakers and the public after Romney’s vote. Quinn said he received over 100 phone calls and 250 emails that were “100% positive to the bill.”

If I were living in Utah, I would be picking up the phone to Quinn or drafting an email right this minute – in my opinion, Romney’s removal can’t happen soon enough! Maybe when he’s booted out of office he might consider the wishes of the American people for once!

Rosie O’Donnell, Other Hollywood Liberals Praise Mitt Romney For Voting To Convict Trump

By PopZette Staff | February 6, 2020

Eight years ago, Mitt Romney was seen as the devil by Hollywood liberals as he was the Republican nominee in the 2012 presidential election. Now, however, Hollywood liberals have changed their tune about Romney after he was the only Republican senator to vote to convict President Donald Trump on impeachment charges yesterday.

Radical Hollywood liberals have been taking to Twitter in droves to praise Romney in the past 24 hours. One such liberal is Rosie O’Donnell, who has been in a bitter feud with Trump for over a decade. She wrote, “thank u @SenatorRomney for voting to convict – one republican with honor #ConvictAndRemove.”

Former “Who’s The Boss” star Alyssa Milano, who has become more famous in recent years for her radical anti-Trump activism than she ever was for her acting, also had words of praise for Romney.

“Thank you for doing what’s right, @MittRomney. History will remember you as a decent, courageous, man among cowards and fools,” she tweeted.

John Cusack, one of the most radically anti-Trump actors in Hollywood, simply wrote, “Romney tells the truth.”

“Incredible,” wrote former “The West Wing” star Bradley Whitford. “The radical idea that an elected official must put their oath to uphold the constitution above what’s most convenient for them politically. Thank you @MittRomney.  Let’s help him blow this spark of decency into a fire that engulfs the madness of hatred and division.”

Even Bette Midler, who frequently attacks conservatives on her Twitter page, shared her love for Romney following his vote.

“Romney made a great speech, logical, well reasoned, emotional and true,” she tweeted. “It honestly looks as if #Romney is the ONLY person of courage in the entire party.  THAT’S THE REAL OUTRAGE.”

When Romney ran for president against Barack Obama eight years ago, he could do nothing right in the eyes of the Hollywood left. They are only praising him now because he shamelessly catered to them by voting to convict Trump out of sheer bitterness and jealousy. As President Trump himself would say: SAD!

Laura Ingraham to Mitt Romney: If I Have to Move to Utah to Beat You I Will

Fox News personality Laura Ingraham demanded Mitt Romney resign from the Senate after he joined Democrats in a vote to convict President Trump in the impeachment trial.

Should he choose not to exit, Ingraham said she’d go so far as to move to the state of Utah to run against him.

In a segment on her show ‘The Ingraham Angle,’ the Fox host eviscerated Romney from top to bottom, referring to the Republican senator as “the ultimate selfish, preening, self-centered politician.”

“If he were up for reelection this year, the people of Utah would have their own payback against him because they were defrauded by Romney,” Ingraham explained. “For when he had to choose, he chose [Charles] Schumer and Kamala [Harris] over common sense and conservatism.”

“Mitt, you made your stand. Now you should resign. You committed a fraud on the people of Utah, on the Republican Party, on the Constitution, and thoroughly embarrassed yourself,” Ingraham continued. “If I have to move there to run against him in four and a half years, I will.”

Fraud on the People

Ingraham’s “fraud on the people” comment is a reference to Romney’s penchant for requesting help from President Trump and his supporters when it benefits him politically, then turning his back on them.

After accepting Trump’s endorsement for Utah senator in 2018, Romney almost immediately wrote a scathing op-ed indicating the President had failed to live up to the “mantle” of the presidency.

The Senator from Utah also accepted Trump’s endorsement for him in the 2012 election. He met with him for consideration of being the President’s Secretary of State at one point. Now, he joins Democrats by demanding new witnesses in the trial, then votes to convict.

“Like all the other bitter ‘Never Trumpers’, he’d rather see the entire American economy go down the drain than give Trump a victory,” Ingraham seethed.

They Still Hate You, Mitt

Ingraham went on to explain that Romney had everyone fooled during his own presidential run in 2012.

“We thought you’d be better for America and the way you repay millions of people, the millions who did vote for you in 2012 is to throw in with the very people who don’t share our goals, who hate us,” Ingraham griped. “And by the way, who still hate you.”

Romney spoke on the Senate floor Wednesday, claiming he was going to vote his conscience and was prepared for any criticism he might face.

He was the only Republican to go alongside the Democrat witch hunt, voting to convict the President of abuse of power.

“The President is guilty of an appalling abuse of public trust,” Romney melodramatically insisted, despite the House failing to prove he was guilty of anything.

Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., called Romney a “coward” who is “blinded by hatred because he had his shot [and] he couldn’t do it.”

Now That Trump Has Been Acquitted, Are We In Agreement The Dem’s Future Is On Fumes?

Before I go into thoughts, let me remind you about Chuck Schumer’s letter regarding former Bill Clinton’s impeachment 1999 in part.

Schumer said the following: “It has shaken me that we stand at the brink of removing a President — not because of a popular groundswell to remove him and not because of the magnitude of the wrongs he’s committed — but because conditions in late 20th century America has made it possible for a small group of people who hate Bill Clinton and hate his policies to very cleverly and very doggedly exploit the institutions of freedom that we hold dear and almost succeed in undoing him.”

Today, the United States Senate acquitted Pres. Donald Trump of two impeachment articles sent by the Democrat-led House of Representatives, and Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Nadler, and Adam Schiff couldn’t do a thing to stop it. Weeks and weeks of this blame game and false narrative created by overzealous lawmakers whose intention was to alert the American public that Pres. Trump was was dangerous to the Republic. He is dangerous, but not to the Republic. The actions of the Democratic party have shown all voters who the bottlenecks of progress have been all these years.

The final vote was 52 to 48 on articles one and 47 to 53 on article two. The only surprise was when Sen. Mitt Romney voted to convict the president on the first article, in what would prove the lone GOP defection.

Democrats have been filled with rage ever since Trump defeated Crooked Hillary in the last election. Democrats are only interested in perpetuating their hatred of Pres. Trump, by fabricating one impeachment case after another for their political gain. That is why they were calling for his impeachment the day after the 2016 elections. Democrats are delusional, paranoid, and blinded by their hatred of the president. That is why they are obsessed with overthrowing an election that reflects the will of the American voters.

Romney is correct about one thing, “The people will judge us for how well and faithfully we fulfilled our duty.” Many Democrats, along with Romney, will be judged harshly in November 2020, but he probably doesn’t care. His son holds a high position in the same Ukrainian company as Hunter Biden, so I’m sure his family will remain well off even after he’s voted out in November.

Democrats went from spying on Trump’s presidential campaign to a special counsel investigation to this House committee investigation sham, and they lost at every turn, but still decided to send two articles of impeachment to the Senate anyway so the American people could hear the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States say, “Donald John Trump has been acquitted of both charges.” This is an epic failure on the part of the Democratic Party; they are nothing but fumes now.

Now that this is all over with, maybe the Senate and the House can finally get back to work and get something accomplished instead of wasting everybody’s time and money.

I’m sure the Democrats have gone back to their offices to try to hatch a new plan to take Trump down. I wonder what they’re going to do next, and they will do something next, it’ll be interesting to see what they try now.

The simple truth is that, for all his shortcomings, Trump is several orders of magnitude better than the alternative. Liberal don’t understand that they have so little to offer that we are willing to have Trump as President, no matter how crass or unpresidential he is.

For the record, I have been consistent with my dislike for Romney since he gave up during the 2nd presidential debate of 2012. But then again, he doesn’t need me; he has a new set of friends now. Maybe he can get a seat on their late-term abortion committee.

Ex-Spokesman For Romney Campaign Says Trump Guilty Vote Was ‘Motivated By Bitterness And Jealousy’

By PoliZette Staff | February 5, 2020

Earlier today, Senator Mitt Romney, R-UT., betrayed the Republican Party that once named him as their presidential nominee when he voted in favor of convicting Donald Trump on impeachment charges. He was the only GOP senator to break party lines by convicting the sitting president.

Now, a former spokesman for Romney’s unsuccessful 2012 presidential campaign is speaking out to say that the senator’s vote that Trump was guilty of impeachable offenses “was motivated by bitterness and jealousy.” Rick Gorka, who is currently a communications director for the Republican National Committee (RNC), took to Twitter to say that Romney is just bitter that Trump “accomplished what he [Romney] has failed to do multiple times.”

RELATED: Nancy Pelosi RIPS Donald Trump’s Speech in Half After His SOTU Speech

He went on to slam Romney for pandering to the very Democrats who ensured he did not win the presidency in 2012.

“These are the same people that hated Mitt in 2012 and they will hate him again when they are done with him,” he added. “It is sad to see that Mitt has not learned the lessons from 2012. Now he has betrayed his Party and millions of voters.”

Gorka wasn’t the only person calling Romney out for his bitterness today, as the president’s son Donald Trump Jr. also got in on the action, going so far as to call for the senator to be “expelled from the GOP.”

“Mitt Romney is forever bitter that he will never be POTUS. He was too weak to beat the Democrats then so he’s joining them now,” he tweeted. “He’s now officially a member of the resistance & should be expelled from the GOP.”

RELATED: MSNBC Hosts Caught on Hot Mic Trashing Dems

Romney was well aware that even with his guilty vote, there was no way Trump would be impeached today. He also knew that the majority of his Republican constituents don’t want to see the president be impeached, so the only logical explanation for his vote is that he was indeed bitter.

It’s sad that after so many years, Romney let jealousy cause him to betray the party that has been so devoted to him. Republicans will never be able to look at him the same way again.

Trump Acquitted By U.S. Senate On All Charges

On Wednesday afternoon the U.S. Senate voted to acquit President Donald Trump on the both articles of impeachment against him.

The first article alleging abuse of power was voted down, an outcome many expected since the trial began on January 21.

Trump Acquitted

Removing Trump from office would have required the support of at least 67 members of the GOP-led Senate, or two-thirds. Only Senator Mitt Romney broke ranks with the 53 Republicans to buck his party and vote to convict.

No president in America’s history has ever been removed from office through the impeachment process.

Trump Acquitted on Both Articles

On to voting on the second article of impeachment, the obstruction of Congress charge, Trump was acquitted 53-47. Romney voted with Republicans on this second charge.

The two Articles of Impeachment against the President were approved in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives in December, both centering on Trump’s alleged request that Ukraine probe former US Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, over their dealings in Ukraine.

Democrats have insisted Trump made a phone call in July 2019 with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that constituted a quid pro quo because $391 million in US military aid to Ukraine was being withheld at the time.

Trump Described Impeachment as a ‘Witch Hunt’ Throughout

Throughout the impeachment process, Trump has denied any wrongdoing, and repeatedly described the entire event as a partisan “witch hunt.”

Even though the articles pass the House, impeachment was expected to fail in the Senate.

The beginning of the end for impeachment truly happened when the Senate voted last week, 51 to 49, to not call any witnesses in the trial.
