Filling in for LevinTV host Mark Levin on the radio Wednesday, BlazeTV host Ben Ferguson called out incoming Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, for attacking the president of the United States in an op-ed for the Washington Post Wednesday.
“What Mitt Romney really decided to do here is he just wanted to be relevant. He wanted to be significant. He wanted to be always quoted in the articles. He wanted to always have his name be out there. He wanted to be a Washington insider. He wanted to be a player, day one,” Ferguson said.
“So how do you get that job? Well, what you do is you decide, ‘I’m going to be the anti-Trump guy, and then everybody is going to want to quote me all the time. And they’re always going to want to come to me whenever they need anything that’s anti-Trump, from a Republican’s perspective.’ That’s exactly the reason why Mitt Romney decided to write this article,” Ferguson continued.
Ferguson noted that in reality, Romney’s article only made him look foolish to the liberal media, who will use his anti-Trumpism for their own purposes.
“Think about how stupid Mitt Romney looks, even to Democrats. They don’t think Mitt Romney’s a hero. They don’t have respect for Mitt Romney because he did this. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are sitting there laughing their A-double-S’s off at the fact that Mitt Romney actually took the bait, and actually did something this stupid,” Ferguson said.
“There’s not a single show that’s having him on that’s not laughing at him, because they know what they’re doing: They’re using this guy. They’re using this guy who has an R by his name, which stands for Republican, to attack the president of the United States of America. And that’s what they wanted. And this guy was dumb enough to do it,” he concluded.
