The Salt Lake Tribune reports:
Utah’s Sen. Mitt Romney threw some shade at Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s call for a “national divorce” to divide up the country by Republican and Democratic states. “I think Abraham Lincoln dealt with that kind of insanity,” Romney said as he briefly met with reporters after meeting with Utah lawmakers on Tuesday. “We’re not going to divide the country. It’s united we stand and divided we fall.”
Greene on Monday called for the United States to “separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government.” Romney scoffed, suggesting Greene was not serious and only seeking attention. “There are some people in my party and the other party that say things to try and get a headline and get people to send them money. And that happens to be in today’s ‘loony left,’ or I should say ‘loony right,’” Romney said.
