Mitt Romney Booed at Utah GOP Convention as Crowd Shouts ‘Traitor'
RINO Republican faces backlash from crowd
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) faced boos from the crowd as he took the stage at the Utah GOP convention on Saturday.
RINO Romney faced shouts of “communist” and “traitor" from several of those in attendance.
Romney responded to the reaction from the crowd who expressed their distaste with his job performance:
“I’m a man who says what he means, and you know I was not a fan of our last president’s character issues."
“You can boo all you like,” Romney added.
“I’ve been a Republican all of my life."
"My dad was the governor of Michigan, and I was the Republican nominee for president in 2012.”
Derek Brown, Chairman of the Utah GOP, was forced to step in and tell the crowd to be more respectful.
Romney said despite the crowd's distance:
“We need to come together in strength and unity.”
Other members attempted to show their appreciation for the senator as he faced backlash from the crowd.
Romney has since faced immense backlash over his votes to impeach former President Donald Trump.
A total of 711 voted to censure Romney, while 798 voted against the effort.
Earleir this year, Romney ripped Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), calling on his party to distance itself from the "wacky weed" lawamker.
"I think we should have nothing to do with Marjorie Taylor Greene and think we should repudiate the things she said and move away from her," Romney said at the time.
"Our big tent is not large enough to both accommodate conservatives and kooks."
