(Deseret News frequently represents the views of the LDS Church)

In a Washington Post oped, Romney wrote that “On balance, (Trump’s) conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions (in December), is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office.” 

“Sensationalist pundits may try to turn this op-ed into some suggestion that Mitt is posturing for a potential presidential run. It is not,” said Kirk Jowers, a Romney supporter. 

Jason Perry, director of the Hinckley Institute of Politics: the op-ed answers any lingering questions on whether Romney will be reserved in his opinions. This op-ed was sent to a national news organization to address the nation and the world in some way. Before his first official day on the job Mitt Romney is already shaping the conversation in Washington.”

I don't feel like reading the mormon news so I'll just iterate my gut reaction to the title, particularly 'risen to the mantle of the office.'


My, how very regal that sounds. The mantle of the office. I think it's high time our people stop bestowing mantles of any kind to a bunch of lying crooks...no matter how dignified their learned behavior. Obama acted arrogantly enough to hoodwink millions, as he carried on thievery and murder like a god.


Frankly, I wouldn't cross the street to see anyone currently holding office in this nation. Do we worship money SO damn much that paid public servants deserve mantles on their shoulders? Aren't there enough mantles on corrupt ordained Catholics to satisfy our desperate hunger to bow and grovel?

By not reading the two short paragraphs, you have missed the point entirely, which is in fact that even the Mormons are not happy with Trump.


"Mantle" is a very old term which really doesn't mean the way you have interpreted it.


If you can bring yourself to watch a short video, try this one.

Romney told Jake Tapper today that he would vote for Trump's wall against Mexico. See OEN quick link tomorrow on that about face!
