President-elect Joe Biden praised U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) on Friday, despite viciously attacking his character in the past.
While speaking to reporters, Biden complimented Romney and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell:
Biden says “a number” of Republicans have called him since Wednesday to express outrage & embarrassment with Trump. He praises McConell & Romney for standing up & saying the right things on Senate floor, but adds “there’s others who should be ashamed of themselves.” pic.twitter.com/Q1GAn4WoBM

Biden said he spoke to Romney Friday morning and added, “Enormous respect for” Romney “and I ran against him.”
He praised Romney, claiming he “lives his faith.”
But in 2012, Biden brutally assailed Romney.
I’m old enough to remember when Biden had a very different take on the moral compass of Sen. Romney….
