Mitt Romney Wears Disguises To Hide From Trump Supporters

( )- The upcoming book from New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns certainly has been a source of some wildly interesting and eye-opening behind-the-scenes tidbits.

From learning that Kamala Harris expects White House staffers to stand when she enters a room to discovering how Jill Biden really felt about Kamala’s selection as Joe’s running mate, Martin and Burns’ book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future,” has been a virtual treasure trove of insider information.

The latest excerpt reveals, among other things, that Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney always wears a hat while out on the town in Palm Springs, Florida where he has a vacation home to avoid getting recognized by Trump voters.

Days before the January 6 riot, Romney had been accosted by Trump supporters at the Salt Lake City airport as he was flying back to Washington. Clearly, the experience spooked the guy. And since Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home is also in Palm Springs, Romney is extra twitchy about getting spotted there.

The other tidbit to come out last week is that Romney’s wife Ann said Trump’s “dominance” in the Republican Party, not to mention Republican voters’ hatred of her husband, has given her severe doubts that any of their five sons will ever run for office as Republicans.

Okay, that tidbit is tremendous news since no Republican on Planet Earth is clamoring for a Romney version of the Bush Dynasty.

Let the Romney sons run as Democrats. At least they’d be more honest about where their loyalties lie than their father is.

It is fascinating that both Mitt and his wife Ann believe Republican loathing of her husband stems entirely from Donald Trump.

The Republican base objected to Mitt Romney when he was forced on them as the GOP nominee in 2012. Voters didn’t want the guy. And given how he wilted during the race against Obama, the voters were wise to object.

If anything, Mitt Romney’s disastrous 2012 run played a significant role in the base’s decision to reject the establishment in favor of Donald Trump in 2016.

Romney is wise to wear a hat in Palm Springs, if for no other reason to hide his head in shame.
