Mitt Romney to Harry Reid: ‘Good riddance’

In an article published Tuesday at the Huffington Post, Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat readers of this site agreed is both evil and mentally unstable, slammed former GOP nominee Mitt Romney, telling the outlet that he once respected Romney but doesn’t any longer.  That prompted Romney to — finally — hammer Reid.

According to the Huffington Post:

Reid argued that Romney, who’d called Trump a fraud during the presidential campaign, had lost any ability to criticize the soon-to-be-president by prostrating himself for the secretary of state gig.

“This is man who came out big-time against Trump. Oh, the things he said about Trump. Well, that’s great, that’s wonderful,” Reid said. “Either he wasn’t telling the truth, or he’s a person with no character. After having said that, to go and do homage to this guy he said awful things about, I don’t think that shows much character.”

“Mitt Romney is somebody I had respect for,” Reid said, in a somewhat dubious assertion. “I have none anymore.”

Romney responded (Emphasis added):

“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,” Romney said through a spokesperson. “As for Mr. Reid, I lost respect for him when he repeatedly lied about my taxes and later admitted to it cheerily. Good riddance, Mr. Reid. The Senate will be better served without you in it.”

I would go one step further and say America — if not the whole world — is better off with Reid out of the Senate.

I think a lot of people have been waiting for this.

Meanwhile, Twitchy said, Adam Jentleson, Reid’s deputy chief of staff, is “doing his best to downplay” Romney’s smackdown.
