Failed Presidential candidate Sen. Mitt Romney (RINO-UT) tried to play smashmouth with Republican firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) over her statements about pushing for a national divorce from the ‘Marxist- Pro-Chonese Communist Party’ left.
Romney, a persistent Never Trumper, indicated that he wanted unity and pushed back on Greene, and the results were humiliation for him, while he claimed everyone else in ‘his party’ was ‘crazy.’
In reaction to Greene pushing for a divorce from the left, Romney, who is a very soft and fragile character, had a brazen personal attack on Greene and responded:
“I think Abraham Lincoln dealt with that kind of insanity,” he told The Salt Lake Tribune on Tuesday. “We’re not going to divide the country. It’s united we stand and divided we fall. There are some people in my party and the other party that say things to try and get a headline and get people to send them money. And that happens to be in today’s ‘loony left,’ or I should say ‘loony right.’”
Romney made the statements while looking like he was about to cry.

But the Georgia firebrand representative hit back at Romney when she spoke to the Washington Examiner.
“Mitt Romney is so bad I couldn’t even vote for him for president against Barack Obama,” she said.
Green used to be pushed back on by proponents of the administrative state, like Romney.
This week Rep. Greene said she was attacked while dining at a restaurant, Carmine Sabia reported for Conservative Brief.
“I was attacked in a restaurant tonight by an insane women and screamed at by her adult son. They had no respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me who simply have different political views. They are self righteous, insane, and completely out of control. I was sitting at my table, working with my staff, and never even noticed these people until they turned into demons. People used to respect others even if they had different views. But not anymore. Our country is gone,” she said on Twitter.
Sabia reported more details, adding some speculation about her stand on Ukraine as a :
The representative did not say what restaurant the incident occurred at or what was said to her.
The Georgia representative made news this month when she spoke on the war between Russia and Ukraine.
Greene is demanding an audit of the financial aid given to Ukraine by the United States. She said on Thursday that she plans to re-introduce legislation to audit the tens of billions of dollars given to Ukraine.
“It’s going to force Congress to give the American people an audit,” she told Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “And that is exactly what the American people need, an audit of Ukraine because we have no idea where all this money’s going.”
“I’m introducing this resolution, and I’m looking forward to seeing my Republican colleagues support it. There’s not bipartisan support among the American people for fighting a war in Ukraine that does nothing for Americans except force them to pay for it,” the representative said. “Ukraine is the new Iraq,” she said. “Our country is run by stupid warmongers that are so clueless and disconnected with what the American people want that they are literally leading us into World War 3. That’s why I’m introducing a resolution to find out exactly where our money is going.”
But you can count Fox News host Laura Ingraham as one of the people who are not thrilled with Rep. Greene’s idea of a national divorce.
Speaking on her Fox News show on Wednesday, Ingraham said that the answer to the divide in the United States was not red states separating from blue states.
“We need a national divorce,” the firebrand Republican Georgia representative said in a tweet on Presidents’ Day this week. “We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government. Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s [sic] traitorous America Last policies, we are done.”
Ingraham also showed a clip of the representative saying that people who move from blue states to red states should not be allowed to vote for five years.
“Red states could choose in how they allow people to vote in their states… What I think would be something that some red states could propose is, well, ok, if Democrat voters choose to flee these blue states where they cannot tolerate the living conditions, they don’t want their children taught these horrible things, and they really changed their mind on types of policies that they support, well, once they move to a red state, guess what? Maybe you don’t get to vote for five years,” she said.
