Mitt Romney, a Republican from Utah, has made a habit of bashing Republicans with whom he disagrees more brutally than he does Democrats, and he has done so once again.
President Joe Biden chastised Republican Reps. Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene after they screamed during sections of the State of the Union address this week.
The president asked Congress to adopt legislation to assist Afghanistan and Iraq veterans who are suffering as a result of their exposure to toxic burn pits used to incinerate garbage such as jet fuel, medical waste, and hazardous items.
“When they returned home,” he continued, “many of the world’s fittest and best-trained fighters were never the same.”
“Headaches. Numbness. Dizziness. A malignancy that would send them to their death in a flag-draped casket.” said the president.
According to reporters present in the House, Rep. Boebert then said, “You placed them there.” There are thirteen of them.” The remark came in response to the thirteen military personnel died in a suicide attack during the army pullout from Afghanistan, including Staff Sgt. Taylor Hoover of Utah.
Rep. Greene yelled at Biden at another section of his speech in which he talked about reforming immigration.
“Folks, if we are to achieve liberty and justice, we must protect our border and repair our immigration system,” he stated as Rep. Greene yelled, “Build the wall!”
“As you might expect, I believe we can accomplish both. We’ve deployed new equipment at our border, including as cutting-edge scanners, to better identify drug smugglers,” the president stated.
Sen. Romney, on the other hand, had no problem with a Democrat president talking about border security, which many feel is hypocrisy.
During a conference call with reporters, the senator was more interested with chastising his Republican colleagues, according to KSL.
“Well, that was plainly impolite and, in my opinion, very improper.” “We’re not the English House of Commons,” he explained.
Shouting is quite prevalent in the British parliamentary body. “We usually sit with respect for the president, regardless of party, and hurl charges… “It’s absolutely nasty and awful,” added the senator.
“Every now and again, members in our own party do things that embarrass me,” he admitted. “I felt humiliated last night when they did it.”
Several Republicans hold the same opinion of him. Rep. Boebert, on the other hand, did not back down from her views later on Twitter.
“I couldn’t keep quiet when Biden mentioned flag-draped coffins.” I told him straight out that he did it. He threw 13 in there. “Our valiant service members deserve so much better,” she remarked. Rep. Greene responded with another rude remark. “We need to address’mental health,’ according to Joe Biden.” I concur. “We must begin with the presidency,” she explained.
