President Trump Thursday tweeted out what a “great chairwoman” of the RNC Ronna McDaniel is. Ronna’s maiden name is Romney, and her dad is Mitt’s brother.
Thank you, Mr. President! I am proud to be a part of your winning team and look forward to helping you deliver even more wins for the American people!https://t.co/aa6nbmN9G6— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) January 3, 2019
Now, why did Trump do that? Not because of the Republicans’ performance in the midterms, I assume.
Rather, it’s because soon after Mitt Romney’s Washington Post editorial blasting President Trump as unethical appeared Wednesday morning, McDaniel wasted no time backing her boss over her kin.
POTUS is attacked and obstructed by the MSM media and Democrats 24/7. For an incoming Republican freshman senator to attack @realdonaldtrump as their first act feeds into what the Democrats and media want and is disappointing and unproductive. https://t.co/ArhI7Bi7bo— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) January 2, 2019
Romney is getting little credit from either Democrats or Republicans for his attempt to seize the holy high ground as the moral paragon of the GOP. Because everyone understood that he’s as much an opportunist as any politician, or more so.
