S.E. Cupp: ‘Pretty Darn Rich’ of Obama to Lament Current GOP After He Called Romney a ‘Bullsh*tter’ in 2012

CNN’s S.E. Cupp told Wolf Blitzer this afternoon former President Barack Obama‘s speech today was well-intentioned but a little off the mark. She said, “Being generous, let me say I think that President Obama was trying to do the right thing… Appealing to common ground, trying to get that audience engaged without getting them angry.” However, she took issue with Obama lamenting the current state of the Republican party and how it’s acting more “radical” than conservative:
“But in ticking off all of the Republican Congress’ ills and the Trump Administration’s ills and saying ‘none of this is conservatism,’ ‘what happened to the Republican Party,’ believe me, conservatives like me have the very same laments and ask the very same questions. But it’s pretty darn rich. One of the most conservative, moral, honest, decent men we know is Mitt Romney. And Mitt Romney was a guy that Continue reading "S.E.

Mitt Romney Burns Obama in Statement Condemning Trump For Putin Presser

Add Mitt Romney‘s name to the growing list of Republican lawmakers who have rebuked President Donald Trump for his bizarre press conference Monday morning in which he capitulated to Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin. Romney — who’s running for Senate in Utah and has been an on-and-off critic of the president — called Trump’s performance “disgraceful and detrimental to our democratic principles.” But he also managed to take a shot at his former 2012 presidential campaign opponent Barack Obama in the statement. Back during the 2012 campaign, Obama mocked Romney for calling Russia the “biggest geopolitical threat” facing America. “The 1980s, they’re now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years,” Obama said to Romney. That has obviously changed, with Russia successfully attacking US elections in 2016 and challenging American foreign policy from the Middle East to Ukraine.

Seth Rogen Says He Turned Down Paul Ryan’s Request For a Photo: I Told Him ‘No Way, Man!’

Seth Rogen dished about an awkward encounter he recently had with Speaker Paul Ryan. Rogen began by explaining out of nowhere, he received a phone call from Mitt Romney and invited the actor, who is an advocate for a cure to Alzheimer’s disease, to speak at a summit about brain health, which he agreed to attend. He told Stephen Colbert how almost all of the attendees were Republicans and during the event, two teenagers approached Rogen and asked to take a picture with him. But then he was “put into a pickle.” “They said, ‘Our dad wants to meet you.’ And I turn around and Paul Ryan was walking towards me,” Rogen said. “My whole body puckered, I tensed up. And I didn’t know what to do! And he came over, just grabbed my hand. And I’m just, like, ‘I’m shaking his hand, I don’t know what to do.

Trump Calls Mitt Romney a ‘Straight Shooter,’ Reporter Reminds Him ‘He Called You a Con Man’

Mitt Romney is apparently back in President Donald Trump‘s good graces. All it took was for the Utah Senate candidate to predict that Trump will “easily” win reelection in 2020. “I think that not just because of the strong economy and the fact that people are going to see increasingly rising wages,” Romney said — in comments reported by multiple outlets. “But I think it’s also true because I think our Democrat friends are likely to nominate someone who is really out of the mainstream of American thought and will make it easier for a president who’s presiding over a growing economy.” Moments before leaving Washington for the G7 Summit in Canada Friday morning, the president just couldn’t say enough kind things about his ol’ pal Mitt. “Look, Mitt’s a straight shooter,” said Trump, with something resembling a straight face. “Whether people love him or don’t love him Continue reading "Trump Calls Mitt Romney a ‘Straight Shooter,’ Reporter Reminds Him ‘He Called You a Con Man’"

Mitt Romney: President Trump Will Win Again in 2020

Former governor/aspiring Senate candidate Mitt Romney is pretty sure Donald Trump‘s presidency will last a second term. Romney spoke with high-level political figures and business leaders yesterday at his annual retreat in Utah. As he and his guests spoke about the current state of American leaders, he predicted that Trump’s re-election bid will succeed in 2020, for a variety of reasons. “I think that not just because of the strong economy and the fact that people are going to see increasingly rising wages,” said Romney. “But I think it’s also true because I think our Democrat friends are likely to nominate someone who is really out of the mainstream of American thought and will make it easier for a president who’s presiding over a growing economy.” The remarks are interesting considering the fact that Romney’s relationship with Trump is…complicated to say the least. The former Massachusetts governor called Continue reading "Mitt Romney: President Trump Will Win Again in 2020"

Candidate Romney Reevaluates Trump: Still No Role Model but ‘Exceeded Expectations’

Former Massachusetts Governor, former GOP Presidential Nominee, and former public Donald Trump nemesis Mitt Romney is running for Senate in Utah, and that has changed his tone a bit when it comes to talking about the President. That’s a key takeaway from some of the released transcripts so far coming out of an NBC interview with the candidate on the campaign trail Monday, as Sopan Deb of the New York Times observed on Twitter on Tuesday. “I don’t think I would call him a role model” (remember that phrase) and “departed from truth in some cases” are a Continue reading "Candidate Romney Reevaluates Trump: Still No Role Model but ‘Exceeded Expectations’"

Pastor Robert Jeffress Responds To Mitt Romney and Other Critics: ‘I’m Not a Bigot’

Pastor Robert Jeffress appeared on Fox News after facing criticism for his participation in the ceremony commemorating the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. On Monday morning, Mitt Romney took to Twitter to denounce Jeffress by invoking remarks he made about Jews and Mormonism, calling him a “religious bigot.” The Anti-Defamation League also expressed their dissent of Jeffress and his involvement in the ceremony. Jeffress denied saying “anything derogatory about the Jewish people” and spoke at the ceremony about the “sameness” Jews and Christians have in believing the same God. “I want to be clear. I’m not a bigot, I’m not an extremist, but I do without apology embrace the most foundational belief of historic Christianity. And that is that faith alone in Jesus Christ is the exclusive way to Heaven,” Jeffress told Shannon Bream. “Jesus said ‘I am the way, the truth and the life. No Continue reading "Pastor Robert Jeffress Responds To Mitt Romney and Other Critics: ‘I’m Not a Bigot’"
