Two GOP lawmakers have railed against former President Trump for his recent remarks at an Ohio rally Saturday. Both Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) reacted to the rally on CNN Sunday.

Romney said the rally reminded him of the World Wrestling Federation. “This is like WWF, that it’s entertaining, but it’s not real,” the Utah Republican senator said.

Romney said Trump’s allegations about election fraud haven’t come from any reputable sources. “Did [Trump] hear it from the intelligence community? No,” Romney said. “So where did he hear it from? The MyPillow guy? Rudy Giuliani?”

On the other hand, Kinzinger called the Saturday festivities “a rally of a loser president.”

“I mean, he’s the first president to lose re-election in decades,” Kinzinger said. “And I don’t know why these folks would go there and in essence ogle at and in many cases just short of worship a loser, but they did.”

However, when it comes to the election fraud allegations, the Illinois Republican representative thought the talking points are working on American voters. “And then he went into old recycled talking points. Look, but the problem is, again, people believe this. They really do,” Kinzinger said. “And there’s enough people, frighteningly, that believe he’ll be president in August.”
