The Republican opposition to Trump doesn’t exist https://t.co/dhgXu977h3

Yay! In @MittRomney, we’d get a GOP Senate nominee who is:
1. Not a sexual predator
2. Not Ignorant
3. Not Homophobic
4. Not Racist
5. Not Misogynist
6. Not Inexperienced
7. Not divisive
8. Not embarrassing
9. Not a Bannon puppet
10. Has good teeth
11. Has great hair
Run, Mitt! https://t.co/DYbjQafSwX

He *looks* the part of a TV-drama senator, and is not sufficiently interested in human interaction to have committed sexual battery! Yay for our side! Since Navarro is not an idiot, I have to assume this is sarcasm on her part.
The metric through which progressives can best judge the bona fides of their new NeverTrump pals from the right is how seriously those new allies take the laughable concept of Mitt Romney, Man of Principle.

It's a bit silly to claim LOL Corker/Romney will vote with Trump 99% of the time, as if this is the end of the discussion.
Yes, that's true.
But it has value when GOP Senators state clearly that Trump is unfit for office. https://t.co/BivUWJoOYb

… It is useful, because a Romney run — and victory — could set an example for other congressional Republicans to follow when it comes to acting as a check on Trump’s many excesses, from his dangerous international bluster, to his self-dealing and corruption, to his contempt for norms and the rule of law. If they don’t follow that example, their enabling of these Trump excesses will be thrown into sharper relief.
That is, this might be the case, if Romney is true to his own past statements about Trump. Let’s not let this get memory-holed: In his big March 2016 speech against Trump, Romney flatly and unequivocally declared Trump unfit to serve as president. Will Romney reiterate this sentiment, when he’s running for Senate?…
Spoiler alert from a Masshole, Mr. Sargent: Nope! Willard will fold like a cheap lawn chair, because that’s his signature legislative tactic. Although he will look very stateman-like as he makes his excuses for letting Trump and the Oval Office Trumplodytes do whatever they damned well choose.
People forget. I will never forget the smile on Romney's face after he interrupted the 2012 presidential campaign to politicize Benghazi less than 24 hours after it happened. https://t.co/7vysoxDrXK
