Romney: Trump Is a Russian Dupe

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, blasted Russia on Sunday for a cyberattack he said amounted to an “invasion,” adding that the president’s unwillingness to blame Russia shows he has a “blind spot” when it comes to the country,” according to NBC News. [emphasis added]

U.S. officials believe that Russian intelligence was behind a suspected hacking campaign unveiled last week that infiltrated more than 40 organizations, including many government agencies and contractors.

“But while top government officials, like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have publicly said it appears that Russia was behind the hack, President Donald Trump cast doubt on that assessment in a Saturday tweet, where he floated the possibility “it may be China” who perpetrated the hack.

“‘I was disappointed with the president’s comment,’ Romney said during an interview on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.” ‘But I think we’ve come to recognize that the president has a blind spot when it comes to Russia. And the reality here is that the experts, the people who really understand how our systems work and how computers work and software and so forth, the thousands upon thousands at the CIA and the NSA and the Department of Defense, have determined that this came from Russia.'” [emphasis added]

    Senator Romnney is a pitiful loser. He lost his bid for President and before that didn’t he lose his bid for Senator of MA? I looked it up and he lost to Ted Kennedy in 1994. Well, he is a poor representative for conservative UTAH. He has no following. I wrote him an email and asked him to hibernate from the press until maybe spring!! He for sure needs to be primaried when he runs again.

    President Trump is definitely one of our best EVER Presidents. I notice there are some people that disagree, and that’s fine because we live in America where we have the option of disagreement! It’s the people that apparently don’t have enough ‘smarts’ to describe their thinking without using VILE language! My concern is for America and how is it going to be changed? However, perhaps it won’t be changed. How will illegals coming across our border hang onto America? There is a legal way! Also, how will Israel be treated, and there are other concerns….

  3. Ken says:

    Romney is just plain a dufus.

  4. Born in the USA says:

    To Mitt Romney- SHUT THE FUCK UP LOSER, nobody cares about your TOTALLY WORTHLESS opinion!

  5. Baxter says:

    Mit Romney is simply a disgruntled, unelectable failure – a disgrace to the otherwise respectable state of Utah. A traitor to the party within which he aligns himself, and basically a “sore loser”. With any luck, the people of Utah will recognize his ineptitude and send him back to his farm in Utah.

  7. JOE MONTE says:

    Romney is striking in a suit. Like a model. Problem is that every time he opens his mouth, he sounds like a dummy.

  8. Jose Cantu says:

    If Trump, according to Romney, is a Russian dupe, then Romney, according to this voter, is a Mormon dope. He is just not yet over getting beat by Trump, and is a democrat in republican’s clothing. : (

  9. John says:

    Romney isn’t over the loss to President Trump, he also can not stand everything has completed. He backed Biden, I guess crooks hang together and see nothing wrong with there actives. it also seems the top people in the Demo-crooks should be getting ready for prison…I for got the own a lot of judges.

    Mitt Romney has proven he has abandoned his party! Of course he has he really needs to just get out of Washington! He is a washed up politician who continually changes his spots! Not to mention he is a very poor loser and always attacks the party he lost to! He is not who he pretends to be and loves stirring the pot! Really Russian this Russian that when none of that has been true! I think President Trump is spot on about China! Joe and Mitt of course want people to love China it is in their best financial interest! They want us to support China, after all they have made the Biden family very rich! Maybe Mitt got rich to from China! I would sooner believe that is the case, rather than Russia. Russia. Russia! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  12. Tink says:

    Hwy mittens, your jealousy and stupidity are showing and you do NOT wear them well!!! What a joke you are…bet your wives are embarrassed!!!

  13. Ronald says:

    Who the hell is Mitt Romney, all that’s right a LOOSER that is not anybody wants to hear about! Watch Dog print something worth while!

  14. Vivian says:

    Maybe Romney is stumping for a job with thd Biden administration. He has all fhe credentials they require no experience or expertise for the position like most of Bidens appointees. Most of all he’s a liar, which is also a component to getting in the new admin. Romney is jealous of Trump and resents that he didnt get a position in the Trump admin.

  15. G says:

    Romney thinks he will have a seat at the Biden China table and may have visited the land of misfit boys otherwise known as Epstein Island. They have something on Romney or he has been promised something to keep bashing Trump. He apparently has everything to lose when Trump is declared the winner.

  16. rosebud says:

    Russia has a hold on Trump, which may relate to surveillance of a room he was in early on. There’s probably a tape so Mitt is probably correct.
    Christine you have been conned.

  17. What good has Romney ever done for America? NOTHING!!! President Trump puts all these Rhinos to shame, they could never be a fourth of what our great president is. For 4 years, President Trump has made America Great and these Rhinos have fought him every step of the way. We need time limits to keep Rhinos out of the government. I love what our President stands for: Stands up for God, honesty, love, caring for the people and America, the best and the last best President we will ever have. Why? Because God sent him to us. Look at the thanks he gets from the democrats. None that are in office. He has democrat supports out in the public, they have seen the light.

  18. Glen Flacke says:

    Biden referred to you as that morman guy he forgot your name. I never here you talk about that. Why is that? Grow up

  19. Charles Anberson says:

    All these Trumpets should get a Life!

  20. sue says:

    Romney said he was disappointed, no doubt, because Romney is, one big disappointment, he’s a good case for term limits.

  21. Mike says:

    Who cares what this POS ‘mittens’ says!!! He was a lousy governor & even worse senator. Whinny, jealous, little richASS, who thinks he so much better then everyone. What a POS COWARD!!!

  22. trumper forever says:

    I dont know where this guy went wrong ,,he started out ok but went downhiil fast after he couldnt stand up to Obama ,,he acts self righteous and holy but his actions dont back this up,,,,go away and live your life somewhere else other than in front on the camera

  23. Larry says:

    We have been through Russian collusion to no avail before. It is without a doubt that the plausibility for something of this nature could be in their wheelhouse but, it is amazing how even this woman’s jeans wearing asshat will not entertain the clear possibility of it being Chinese given the glaring indicators of the vote fraud involvement on their part.

  24. Mary Ann says:

    I also think that president Trump is the best president we ever had. If the Supreme Court was “impartial” and listened to all the facts presented he would be starting his second term.
    Who even cares what that rino thinks. We all know what he is. I can’t tell him what I think he is because it wouldn’t be fit to print. Why does he bother. NO ONE CARES!!

    • Craig Freeman says:

      Mary Ann
      You are correct !! Mittney is a definitely a RINO!! 100 %
      Hes a traitor to the Republican party!!!Among other career politicians in the party!!!

  25. Guess that would make Romey a demo pawn!!!

  26. Phyllis says:

    I agree with all the comments ! The only thing I can add is Trump could run circles around Romney in a debate. He certainly shows his true colors !

  27. John says:

    This coming from a presidential want to be could not win that position. Rommney a RHINO communist who must love China. The Church of Latter Day Saints should kick him out of Utah and give him a one way ticket to China.

  28. T Beach says:

    They try and blame everything on Russia while completely denouncing anything negative about China. Guess they dont wanna piss off the money people. They cant get rich if they cant get their bribes.

  29. Berniece says:

    This does not barely merit a reply!! Romney is a has-been and needs to stay in the state of Utah!!

  30. Ss says:

    Romney is a spoiled brat, loser! Can’t believe he got elected to the Senate! Wolf in sheep’s clothing…..Rino!!

  31. Bill Julian says:

    Mittens is a fucking ass clown. I hope the people of Utah come to their senses in 2024. He probably would have been a worse POTUS than the Kenyan n

  32. Ellie Watts says:

    It’s probably both Russia and China. Why wouldn’t they both hack? And, Mitt you nieve little man, what the president says in public is probably meant to mislead them. What a small mind. You are playing tic-tack-toe while Trump is playing three dimensional chess.

  33. Christine says:

    I think Trump is the best President we ever had and loves America and would not do anything to hurt this Country So Romney go back to Biden and Hillary and spread your lies
