Mitt Romney’s anti-Trump op-ed in the Washington Post today is all the buzz, and the incoming U.S. senator’s first interview since its publication will be with a somewhat predictable outlet:
CNN announces Mitt Romney will give first post op-ed TV interview today on CNN.

Today at 4 p.m. ET on @TheLeadCNN with @JakeTapper: Sen.-elect Mitt Romney's first live interview since his op-ed in which he says President Trump's behavior since taking office "is evidence that the President has not risen to the mantle of the office." https://t.co/py5pGWeJQG pic.twitter.com/bIy3tL2ODx

It says everything that Romney is running straight to the #FakeNews opponents of @realDonaldTrump . If he wanted to offer a conservative critique he could have easily written in @NRO or gone on Laura Ingraham. Instead he’s headed to fraternize with the enemies of the people. https://t.co/mGRgFmenQl

Many are predicting Romney will assume the mantle left by a certain outgoing GOP senator:
Exit Sen Jeff Flake—enter Mitt Romney. Will it never end?
— Joe Sarver (@JoeSarver) January 2, 2019
Here we go. The next Jeff Flake.

Jeff Flake is on CNN again?

Time will tell.
