Romney Likens Trump to a ‘Gargoyle’ Hanging Over GOP

“There is no bottom to the degree to which he’s willing to degrade himself, and the country for that matter. Having dinner with those people was disgusting… I voted to remove him from office twice… I don’t think he should be president of the United states. I don’t think he should be the nominee of our party in 2024. And I certainly don’t want him hanging over our party like a gargoyle.”

— Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), quoted by NBC News, on Donald Trump having dinner with Holocaust deniers.

Sanders Welcomes Another Trump Prez Run

“As an American, the idea of another Trump campaign and all of his lies and divisiveness and his efforts to undermine American democracy is an absolute horror show. … On the other hand, I got to say that as a politician who wants to see that no Republican is elected to the White House in 2024, from that perspective, his candidacy is probably a good thing.”

— Sen. Bernie Sanders, quoted by the New York Times.

Trump-Blamers Pile On

“It’s basically the third election in a row that Donald Trump has cost us the race. And it’s like, three strikes, you’re out. … The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. Donald Trump kept saying we’re gonna be winning so much we’re gonna get tired of winning. I’m tired of losing. That’s all he’s done.”

— Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, to the Washington Post. (R)
