That was Sen. Mitt Romney, a Utah Republican, telling MSNBC that he thinks it’s time to bench former President Donald Trump following the GOP’s somewhat lackluster showing in last week’s midterm elections.
Despite some pundits predicting a “red wave” of Republican victories that would reclaim control of Congress, Democrats managed to hold onto the Senate, and the GOP picked up fewer seats in the House than expected.
And when Romney said he thought Trump was going to announce running for president for a third time on Tuesday, that’s when the senator broke out his “aging pitcher” metaphor.
“I know there’s some fans that love him,” Romney said, “but it’s time to get off the mound, because we have a real strong bench.”
Romney has been one of the few Republicans who has been vocal in criticizing Trump over the years, including voting to impeach him twice.
Trump has returned fire at Romney, for example calling him a “super RINO,” or Republican in Name Only, after Senate Republicans reached a deal with Democrats on infrastructure PAVE,

Romney’s a turd in a punchbowl.
Says a guy who can’t get out of Little League
“..Romney’s a turd in a punchbowl....”
Always was, is and will always be.
And a big, fat, stinky one at that.
Not a Romney fan, but he makes a good point.
From the guy that BEGGED Trump for a job in his administration and his endorsement.
I detest that SOB.
...says it all.
Mitt must be the pitcher who knowingly tips his pitches to ensure his team loses...
Romney never has been nor will he ever be president.
I do too… hard to determine I despise more, Romney or Kinzinger.
Trump’s won the presidency twice so far. Mitt, you can’t even win it once. You’re the loser, and a pr!ck too.
I’ve been waiting for Mitt to throw his 2 cents in.
I’m sure Mitt is fighting the urge to ‘declare his intent’ himself. He probably still has White-House-Fever, just like
Mrs. Clinton always will.
#F Mitt Romney
I repudiate that I ever voted for the power POS. He makes me want to puke. He handed Obama a second term , on a silver olatter.
Can Mitt, the Shit, say BENGHAZI?
So much projection it’s breathtaking.
Smug talk from the cheap seats.
Romney is a loser and perfect symbol of the RINO infestation of the Republican party. Bit he’s not wrong on this one.
Does he want to put Trump in a cage and carry it on the top of his station wagon?
