Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) was confronted by furious supporters or President Donald Trump at an airport and on a flight, according to emerging footage taken by the hecklers. The airport incident started with a woman approaching Romney, who was looking down at his iPad in a terminal while waiting for his flight.
“How are you doing?” the apparently mask-less woman asked. “Put your mask on,” Romney responded, before the lady quickly fired back, “Don’t tell me what to do.” “You’re a joke,” the lady declared in his direction. “Absolute joke, it’s a disgusting shame.”
To add even more turbulence to Romney’s experience in the airport, once the senator boarded his flight he was apparently met with chants of “TRAITOR!” by pro-Trump travelers.
Note that the woman’s username is “Qtah.” As you’ll see in the clip, she goes on to accuse Romney of being illegally elected.
