After 48 Hours Mitt Romney finally condemned newly elected Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib for calling Trump a ‘mother f*cker’.
Rep. Tlaib took the politics of Washington deeper down the drain. Elected leaders should elevate, not degrade, our public discourse.

If Donald Trump said something like Tlaib did it wouldn’t have taken Romney 48 hours to come out against him. The bottom line is that it is clear that Romney is trying to walk the fine line of attacking Trump while not isolating himself from Trump’s base.
