Mitt Romney, the blue blood Republican who never quite got over never being elected president was recently booed for minutes on stage at a speaking event. Romney was at the party’s state convention in Utah with more than 2,100 Republican delegates packed into the Maverik Center.
Romney had mentioned Trump at the Utah convention, which drew booing.
“So what do you think about President Biden’s first 100 days?” Romney asks.
“Now you know me as a person who says what he thinks, and I don’t hide the fact that I wasn’t a fan of our last president’s character issues,” he continued, drawing more boos.
On Monday, Trump responded:
“So nice to see RINO Mitt Romney booed off the stage at the Utah Republican State Convention,” Trump said in a brand new statement. “They are among the earliest to have figured this guy out, a stone cold loser!”

“Aren’t you embarrassed?” he finally asked.
Also on Saturday, a resolution to censure Mitt Romney for voting for Trump’s impeachment conviction was narrowly defeated 798 to 711, according to Utah Republican Party spokeswoman Lynda Cox.
Mitt Romney was among seven Republican senators who voted to ‘convict’ him at his Senate impeachment trial. The Senate vote was 57 guilty, 43 not guilty.
The Republicans who joined with the Democrats were: Richard Burr of North Carolina, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.
Mitt Romney is up for re-election in 2024.
