To Romney or Not to Romney Video
Despite the fact that a weekend Breitbart poll shows that of the top 3 contenders in the running to become America’s next Secretary of State, Mitt Romney scored a measly 8.7% compared to 25.7% for John Bolton and 37.2% for Rudy Giuliani, rumors persist that President-Elect Donald Trump may still actually be considering Romney for the nation’s most important cabinet post – 4th in the line of succession.
Trump stalwarts like no less than Trump’s own campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, have been raining down warnings of imminent revolt should Romney get the nod – especially over Bolton – a genuine foreign affairs expert as the former ambassador to the UN – or Former May or New York, Rudy Giuliani, who stuck his neck out early and often in support of Trump when he really needed a major credible figure to go television for him.
Conway went on CNN’s “State of the Union” this morning as though campaigning against Romney:
“I’m all for party unity, but I’m not sure we have to pay for that with secretary of state position.”
Conway then took to Twitter in response to folks asking her if she had said these things to Trump, himself.
“I did tell him privately. And I’ll respect his decision. Point is the volume & intensity of grassroots resistance to Romney is breathtaking.”
I don’t think I can ever remember a President-Elect’s campaign manager coming out and crossing swords with the President-Elect before the inauguration over a potential cabinet pick.
Over the weekend some Trump supporters like insider Mike Huckabee suggested that Romney would be acceptable only if he publically apologized for his hurtful and over-hyped criticisms of Trump during the campaign.
Then today, came this – New York magazine’s fake apology from Romney. This apology is apparently a satire, but I certainly wasn’t sure until my wife read it, I searched the so-called fact-checking websites and finally searched throughout the web to no avail for confirmation.
At best, New York magazine has stooped to click baiting its audience.
