From a statement issued by Romney today:
The President’s unwillingness to denounce an absurd and dangerous conspiracy theory last night continues an alarming pattern: politicians and parties refuse to forcefully and convincingly repudiate groups like Antifa, white supremacists, and conspiracy peddlers. Similarly troubling is their silence regarding anti-vaxxers, militias and anarchists. Rather than expel the rabid fringes and the extremes, they had coddled or adopted them, eagerly trading their principles for the hope of electoral victories. As the parties rush down a rabbit hole, they may be opening a door to political movement that could eventually eclipse them both.

Couldn’t agree more!
But we need you to publicly endorse Joe Biden for president. A vote for a third party/write in is a vote for racist unhinged Trump.

Not Mitt Romney’s statement on why he’ll be confirming Amy Coney Barrett.
But, you know, I think this is the subtext. pic.twitter.com/P9zHul9jsq
