Trump trembles: Mitt’s on the move
By Gail Collins
Go Mitt! Back in 2016 when Donald Trump was elected, the world was so upside down you might have believed almost any prediction of our strange future. But I’ll bet you’d still have been skeptical if somebody told you Mitt Romney would turn into an inspirational political figure.
Yes! The same guy who ran one of the most boring presidential races in modern history. (“There’s no question it’s not good being poor.”) Early this year he turned into an impeachment hero. Now he’s calling for “a voice against racism” and marching for Black Lives Matter.
And driving Donald Trump nuts. No holier a grail than that. Yet there’s still one more little thing. Mitt can’t bring himself to say that people should support Joe Biden. He’s keeping his own voting plans secret. There’s a lot of speculation he’s going to write in his wife’s name, like he did in 2016.
