Like John McCain before him, Mitt Romney represents the Republican “old guard” – namely RINOs who when faced with political pressure, inevitably fold and beg for the media to accept them once again. Romney did this in 2012 when he all but disappeared in the final weeks of his presidential campaign against Barack Obama, and now he’s attacking President Trump who, unlike his Republican presidential predecessors, fights back hard and often against the fake news and D.C. elites.
Watch and listen as Newt Gingrich lays out just how weak and irrelevant political figures like Mitt Romney have become in the Age of Trump:
“The truth is I don’t pay attention to Mitt Romney. I don’t think Mitt Romney matters in the long run of American political history. He certainly does not matter in a Donald Trump Republican Party. I think he is a fossilized element of a party that is disappearing. It doesn’t offend me.” – Newt Gingrich
