As the freshman senator from Utah, Mitt Romney is a long way from the presidency. That has to be especially tough on a two-time presidential loser with You-Know-Who sitting in the Oval Office, a guy who took the brass ring by doing the exact opposite of what you did.
My opinion of Mitt Romney has changed over the years. When he lost the Republican nomination to John McCain in 2008, I thought he was a classy guy with a future. When he lost the general election to Barack Obama in 2012, I thought he was a good man with a glass jaw. When he repeatedly got on his high horse to sabotage Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016, I thought he was an opportunistic sleaze bag gorging on sour grapes and his own monstrously selfish sense of virtue.
Brad Parscale, the campaign manager for President Donald Trump’s re-election bid and former data guru for his successful 2016 presidential campaign, hit back at failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Tuesday evening after the Senator-elect from Utah trashed Trump in a Washington Post op-ed alleging that Trump lacked “character.”
Parscale, via Twitter accused Romney of “jealousy,” adding that Romney “lacked the ability to save this nation.” Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.
Here we go with Mitt Romney, but so fast! Question will be, is he a Flake? I hope not. Would much prefer that Mitt focus on Border Security and so many other things where he can be helpful. I won big, and he didn’t. He should be happy for all Republicans. Be a TEAM player & WIN!

The far-left Washington Post fact checked White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and smeared her as a liar because “wringing” her neck is different from “choking” her.
In a reaction piece, WaPo’s Aaron Blake, a left-wing columnist who considers the harassment of Trump supporters “understandable,” blasted away at Sanders Thursday after she calmly listed the horrors she and other Trump officials have dealt with due to an increasingly rabid establishment media.
In last 2 days, Sarah Huckabee Sanders has said media:
-ruined bin Laden surveillance
-called for her to be “harassed”
-called for her to be “choked”
-tasked Michelle Wolf with ridiculing her
All of these are exaggerations or inventions.https://t.co/UhtyRT2Mcj

After CNN’s Jim Acosta, who remains bitter after being heckled by the same Trump supporters CNN and Acosta have spent years smearing as Nazis and racists, repeatedly whined at Thursday’s White House press briefing over the way President Trump treats the media, Sanders said:
It’s ironic, Jim, that not only you and the media attack the President for his rhetoric when they frequently lower the level of conversation in this country. Repeatedly — repeatedly — the media resorts to personal attacks without any content other than to incite anger.
The media has attacked me personally on a number of occasions, including your own network; said I should be harassed as a life sentence; that I should be choked. ICE officials are not welcome in their place of worship, and personal information is shared on the Internet. When I was hosted by the Correspondents’ Association, of which almost all of you are members of, you brought a comedian up to attack my appearance and called me a traitor to my own gender.
In fact, as I know — as far as I know, I’m the first Press Secretary in the history of the United States that’s required Secret Service protection.
In response to this, Blake, who has a troubling history of downplaying the menacing of female Trump staffers, desperately tried to mislead his readers and pick apart Sanders’ statement with an audacious amount of fake news and dishonest hair splitting.

“It would then seem that the “Russia hacking” story was concocted not just to explain away an embarrassing election defeat, but to cover up the real scandal.”By Joel B. Pollak
Democrats’ efforts to raise suspicions about alleged — and, thus far, imaginary — links between President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government may have backfired spectacularly.
The spotlight is now on President Barack Obama and his administration’s alleged surveillance of the Trump campaign, as well as his aides’ reported efforts to spread damaging information about Trump throughout government agencies to facilitate later investigations and, possibly, leaks to the media.
On Sunday morning, the White House released a statement indicating that the president would ask the congressional committees investigating Russian hacking theories to add the question of “whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016.”
Media outlets continued to repeat that the story was based on “no evidence,” though the evidence was plain. Read the rest of the story HERE.
