Republican strategist Rick Wilson appeared on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell last night and scorched the Republican party’s reaction to Mitt Romney voting against Donald Trump in his impeachment trial. The segment began with a montage of Republicans such as Mitch McConnell and Marco Rubio praising Romney during his 2012 election campaign – a huge contrast to the public attacks the Senator is now facing.
Wilson: “It was the screaming fest about ‘Romney, the traitor,’ and all this. It really tells you what happens when these Republicans hear a message like that. They feel pain. It’s their souls trying to re-enter their bodies.”
