BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I was stunned, about eight o'clock last night, out comes a Washington Post op-ed from Mitt Romney, a senator-to-be, about to take over, maybe play a major role in so many different issues. He's taking direct shots at the president. Why?
DAN BONGINO (HOST, THE DAN BONGINO SHOW): Because he is a sell-out. He's a fraud. He's a phony. He's a fake. This is the kind of guy who has absolutely decimated the Republican Party. You know, Brian, when there is a museum left to the remnant of the swamp GOP, and we're all walking through this museum in 20 or 30 years where there used to be the GOP, exhibit 1 will be Mitt Romney, followed closely by Jeff Flake.
You know, Jeff Flake had to pass the baton of GOP sell-outs, and they couldn't even wait, but the race isn't even over yet. Romney doesn't even swear in, I believe, until Thursday. So, they couldn't even wait to pass the baton. And what's even more disgraceful about this Romney op-ed -- and, listen, I spoke positively about Mitt Romney for a very long time. We ran in the same election cycle, and this is a disgusting move. This is the same guy who went up to Bedminster, [New Jersey,] Donald Trump gave him a chance even after Romney shellacked him, unnecessarily so. And Trump gave him a chance. He gave him another chance having dinner with him in Manhattan, the president, that is, and interviewed him for jobs. And do you know what? He endorsed Romney, the president. You want to talk about character? You big phony, fraud, fake. You -- you know what? You should have never taken that endorsement if this is how you felt. This guy's a disgrace. He's an embarrassment. I'm embarrassed for him, the people of Utah, and anyone who supported this fraud. What a fake.
