On the last Sunday before Christmas, the cable and network morning “news” shows were in the words of Dr. Seuss, an appalling dump heap overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment of rubbish imaginable.
Leading the latest charge against President Trump was the failed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney who appeared on multiple networks to snipe at a man with who he has a bizarre and unhealthy obsession with and is clearly jealous of.
Having been at least temporarily embraced by the same media that showered him with nasty smears and abject mockery when he ran against Barack Obama in 2012, Pierre Delecto is regularly trotted out as a “Republican” figurehead for the party’s resistance against Trump.
Mitt didn’t disappoint liberal activists Chuck Todd and Jake Tapper, both of who hosted Utah’s senior senator who went to Washington not to serve his constituents but rather to pursue his vendetta against President Trump who he once begged for his support.

TAPPER: Welcome back to State of the Union. I’m Jake Tapper.
After months of negotiations, stretching into the early hours of this morning, leaders on Capitol Hill now say votes could come as soon as today on a $900 billion relief package.
This would help millions of Americans whose checks from the federal government are set to stop the day after Christmas.
Joining me now is a senator who has been deeply involved in the negotiations, Republican Mitt Romney of Utah, also a former Republican presidential nominee.
Senator Romney, it’s good to see you. Thanks so much for joining us.
I want to get to that relief bill in just one second.
But, first, I have to ask you. President Trump held a meeting on Friday in which he reportedly discussed with his disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn this deranged idea to declare martial law to force new elections in states that Biden won.
They also discussed appointing conspiracy theorist Sidney Powell as a special counsel to investigate her baseless claims of election fraud, and also issuing an executive order to seize voting machines.
This is, needless to say, quite alarming and scary to a lot of people. What’s your response? What will Senate Republicans do to make sure none of this madness happens?
ROMNEY: Well, it’s not going to happen. That’s going nowhere.
And I understand the president is casting about, trying to find some way to have a different result than the one that was delivered by the American people.
But it’s really sad, in a lot of respects, and embarrassing, because the president could right now be writing the last chapter of this administration with a victory lap with regards to the vaccine. After all, he pushed aggressively to get the vaccine developed and distributed. That’s happening on a quick time frame.
He could be going out and championing this extraordinary success.
And, instead, he’s leaving Washington with a whole series of conspiracy theories and things that are so nutty and loopy that people are shaking their head, wondering, what in the world has gotten into this man?
Mitt may be engaged in some sanctimonious finger-wagging against Trump’s “conspiracy” theories but he does so while all but prancing around in a tinfoil hat with the media’s latest loony claim, that he would declare martial law to prevent the blatant theft of the election from him.
Trump himself took to Twitter on Sunday morning to swat down the malarkey with martial law as just more fake news.
Romney also joined the chorus of those who are salivating over a cyberattack on U.S. government systems that was immediately blamed on Russia by the same liars and warmongers who have spent four years undermining President Trump’s efforts at restoring relations with the nuclear powerhouse.
Mitt should be enjoying his day in the sun because the minute that the removal of Trump is no longer the top priority of the establishment, his new friends in the media will turn on him and relegate him to his rightful spot as a pathetic footnote in history.
