I can respect Reid for the fact that his opinions have stayed his own and he has stood firm to what he believes in. Romney on the other hand is easily swayed, and absolutely can’t be trusted. The gloves are off..and you’re going to want to see this!
“Mitt Romney is somebody I had respect for,” Reid told The Huffington Post before Trump announced his nomination of Tillerson. “I have none anymore.
“This is a man who came out big-time against Trump,” he added. “Oh, the things he said about Trump. Well, that’s great, that’s wonderful.”
“Either he wasn’t telling the truth, or he’s a person with no character,” Reid said. “And having said that, to go and do homage to this guy he said awful things about, I don’t think that shows much character.”
Romney pushed back on his reversal over Trump, arguing he could set aside his past differences for the good of America.
Romney issued a statement Tuesday explaining why he considered joining Trump’s Cabinet in light of his initial objections, arguing he could let bygones be bygones for the good of America.
“I was indeed very critical of Mr. Trump during his campaign. But now he has been elected president and accordingly, if I could have helped shape foreign policy to protect the country I love, I would have been more than willing to do so,” the statement said.
Romney touted Reid’s criticism as a badge of honor, saying he had lost respect for the Nevada senator in 2012.
“As for Mr. Reid, I lost respect for him when he repeatedly lied about my taxes and later admitted to it cheerily,” he said. “Good riddance, Mr. Reid. The Senate will be better served without you in it.”
Reid famously accused Romney of having not paid any taxes for a decade during the 2012 presidential campaign.
