Hollywood and Democrats celebrated Senator Mitt Romney’s (R-UT) decision to vote to convict President Trump at the Senate impeachment trial.
Bette Midler and Alyssa Milano backed Romney’s vote and California Democrat Representative impeachment manager Adam Schiff backed Romney’s decision.
Watch Romney’s full speech:
Midler commented on social media saying “Romney made a great speech.”
Romney made a great speech, logical, well reasoned, emotional and true. It honestly looks as if #Romney is the ONLY person of courage in the entire party. THAT’S THE REAL OUTRAGE.

Milano praised Romney’s courage “among cowards and fools.”

House manager Schiff noted Romney’s conviction vote.
Having proven Trump guilty, I asked if there was just one Republican Senator who would say “enough”
Who would stand up against this dangerously immoral president
Who would display moral courage
Who would do impartial justice as their oath required and convict
And there is. https://t.co/xNHi2CP6oF

President Trump blasted Romney’s decision.

By siding with the anti-Trump efforts, Romney becomes a temporary friend of Hollywood and Democrats which is a bond that will not last.
Romney’s decision was bad for the country because, in reality, he voted for lowering the bar to impeach future presidents.
Clearly, Romney knows it was a bad call but he let his animosity against President Trump take precedence over what’s best for the country.
