What's Mitt Romney's problem?

The Americans who voted for President Trump in droves have already sent a message to the political elites — that if the right policies are in place, they don't care about off-color remarks about women or multiple marriages, or any of the "character" flaws Mitt seems to intent to undercut President Trump for.  Why is he doing this?  Trump never did anything to him.  But here he is, going after Trump with the best of the Democrats.
"Romney is a well-lubricated weather vane"

Monica Showalter  "After taking President Trump's endorsement to get himself elected senator, Mitt Romney has made quite a show of turning on Trump.
The last two incidents have been notable:
"He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House.
"He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us:
On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.
"I think young people, as well as people around the world, look at the president of the United States and say, 'Does he exhibit the kind of qualities that we would want to emulate?' And those are qualities of humility, of honesty, integrity, and those are things where I think there's been some call, where the president has distanced himself from some of the best qualities of the human character."
"So Mitt has lots to teach President Trump about character? " . . .
