The other part, in the context of Mitt Romney's career, is again, as you mentioned, this is not something Mitt Romney has traditionally done. Now you could argue the counterfactual if he was up for re election in Utah next year. Would he vote differently if he was thinking about running for president and going for the Republican nomination in 2020? Would he vote differently? I think at this point he has lived a long career. He has had a long, long life, and he would say at this point that he is answering two different forces.
regardless of whether it changes any of the dynamics of this Congress and the Republican Party and this president.
Yeah, I don't think it'll change any dynamics at all, except that Mitt Romney's life is going to get a lot more uncomfortable for reasons that I think he can handle. Given how he weighed this decision.
well, to that point, what has been the reaction Ferrand in the hours since he went on the floor, gave that speech and then cast a vote to convict the president.
I would say quite unpleasant.
everything from the president, United States son Don Jr. Calling for his expulsion from the Senate, his own niece, Ron um, Romney McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee, publicly rebuking him basically on Twitter, his own niece, his own knees. Yes, calls for recall elections in Utah, things like that. Now this is a window into the kinds of things that are in store for someone who descends from President.
Trump and maybe what his colleagues in the Senate.
deliberately avoided A by not doing what he did.
It is a faith that they have voted to avoid. I mean, it's obviously there are a lot of things at work when you decide to make a vote like this. But the noise is an absolutely undeniable part of the experience of voting against the interests of the person who leads your party. Donald.
Thank you, Mark. Thank you, Michael.
On Tuesday night, President Trump himself began attacking Mitt Romney on Twitter, promoting a video that calls Romney slippery and stealthy and without any evidence, claims that Romney is quote a secret asset of the Democratic Party.
