Don’t do it, Donald. Just don’t do it.
President-elect Donald Trump invited former failed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to dinner as he is considering the former Massachusetts governor for a position in his administration.
The pair was joined by Trump’s chief of staff pick, Reince Priebus.
It remains unclear whether Romney will serve in Trump’s administration as Secretary of State, although he reportedly wants the job.
A case of keeping your friends close and your enemies closer, maybe? I’m willing to reserve judgment and wait and see—as I only just said, he isn’t even president yet—but dammit, I still don’t like it. Romney is the very walking, talking definition of an establishment RINO-cuck, and what Trump might imagine he brings to the table as a prospective SecState I’m sure I don’t know. Unless it would be complete puppyish obedience to the will of Da Boss, maybe.
In the end, here’s what it comes down to, seems to me: are we draining the swamp here? Or just topping it up?
