Much of what Gabbard had to say about the Ukrainian labs was stated during her multiple appearances on Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News. For many on that side of the political spectrum, that decision itself is traitorous of Gabbard. How dare she go on Fox News. Whether we agree with Carlson and Gabbard and their takes on the labs is irrelevant, what we should all be able to agree on is their right to say it.
But Romney is an egomaniac. During the Trump presidency, he made everything about himself and repeatedly stymied the Republican agenda to show how “principled” he is. Remember when he sided with the Democrats and voted to convict Trump during the impeachment debacle?
But since 2018, Mitt has been on a divergent path from conservatism. RINOs are despised by conservatives, but the term doesn’t even come close to describing the awfulness of Mitt Romney for the movement.
