‘The View’ Ladies Destroy ‘Shapeshifter’ Romney for Stabbing Trump’s Back in Op-Ed

The criticism toward Sen.-elect Mitt Romney (R-Utah) hasn’t stopped after an op-ed he wrote was published that bashed President Donald Trump, and now the ladies on “The View” are ripping into the soon-to-be senator.

Romney wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post about how Trump’s character was a “shortfall” while adding that “the president has not risen to the mantle of the office.”

“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg questioned why Romney had accepted Trump’s endorsement if he didn’t like the president, while co-host Sunny Hostin labeled the senator-elect a “shapeshifter”; Romney was previously trying to become Trump’s secretary of state.

Ronna McDaniel, Romney’s niece and the chair of the Republican National Committee, bashed Romney’s attack toward the president.

“For an incoming Republican freshman senator to attack [Trump] as their first act feeds into what the Democrats and media want and is disappointing and unproductive,” McDaniel tweeted.

Co-host Meghan McCain, however, said McDaniel committed “Romney-on-Romney crime.”

“Where I come from in political families, you do not attack people you’re related to no matter what happens,” McCain added.

Co-host Abby Huntsman played with the idea of Romney running against Trump in the 2020 presidential election, something McCain shut down real quick and called the “worst idea.” In a recent CNN exclusive, Romney said he would not be running for president against Trump.

“He is for himself. He’s a shapeshifter,” Hostin added, suggesting Romney doesn’t have a moral core. “He says and does what he needs to do for self-preservation. I don’t think he has a real moral center.”

Behar couldn’t hold back from her distaste for Trump, as she stated that “compared to Trump, [Romney] seems incredibly smart.”

Watch the video below:

Trump fired back at Romney’s op-ed by comparing the senator-elect to another GOP Trump critic, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), calling him a “Flake,” as IJR Red reported.

Romney will be sworn into the U.S. Senate on Thursday, and the question remains, as two senators — who are vocal critics of Trump — are ending their Senate career, whether Romney will continue making anti-Trump remarks while in his new position.


  1. Mitt Romney only thinks and talks for himself and his selected group of admirers. Their noses are so high up, they can’t see the real taxpayers.

  2. RINO Romney better get in line & support President Trump! When your job is to serve the people of the United States, you don’t insult their choice of President.

    1. Romney’s job is actually to represent the people of Utah in the best interest of the United States. Unless the state of Utah has changed in the past few minutes it is solidly Red and has only voted demoncrap one time since 1952 and that was before 1968.

      Utah is predominately Mormon and Romney is a Mormon in good standing with the church. The people of Utah voted overwhelmingly for him in 2012. So it appear that the people vote the religion not the politics.

  3. When anyone on the View,other than McCain, is condemning a person speaking against Trump, you know it wasn’t a smart move.

  4. Mitt. Nobody likes a traitor. Nobody trusts a traitor. You lied to the citizens of UT who elected you. McCain and Flake did it better.

    1. Mitt has a long history of not being the brightest bulb on the tree.
