The media is foaming at the mouth again and it’s so funny.
President-Elect Donald Trump is moving pieces here and there and working out his cabinet post through his transition team while the mainstream media is beside itself as they don’t know what’s going on. They are reporting Mitt Romney, former presidential candidate and rival for Trump during the 2016 election season is a prime lock to be chosen as Secretary of State, when no word has been given to this point.
Trump said during the entire election process, never tell your enemies what you are doing and the media is considered an enemy to many of us who look down on their reporting.
Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will meet with Donald Trump this weekend to discuss the secretary of state position, a source close to the president-elect with direct knowledge of his thinking told NBC News.
In March, the former Massachusetts governor called Trump “a phony” and “a fraud” when discussing the then-candidate. Trump, who endorsed Romney in 2012, has called him a loser, adding thatRomney begged for his endorsement and “would’ve dropped to his knees” for it. He has also said that he “choked like a dog” during his 2012 presidential campaign against President Barack Obama.
Others reportedly under consideration for the secretary of state position include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani andSouth Carolina Governor Nikki Haley. Another possibility is Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, who told CNBC on Wednesday he’s “in the mix” for the job.
Separately, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich told NBC News on Thursday he will not be in Trump’s cabinet, instead choosing to focus on “strategic planning for the emerging Republican majority.”
Watch the liberal media speculate and spread rumors:
Once again, our President-Elect proves to be amazing at how he plays the media like a fiddle. He is meeting with Mitt Romney on Sunday, and they are all excited .. “red meat” in speculation, but seriously? The meeting could be nothing more than a long overdue mending of fences. Or it could be for a serious reference for someone Trump is considering who has been close to Romney in the past. So don’t read too much into the meeting at this point.
With that said, on the surface it might seem like a bad thing, Romney is the establishment and (as we all know) was against Trump during the campaign, tried everything he could and we won’t forget that.
On the other hand, it would show President-Elect Trump’s willingness to put aside personal differences for the betterment of the nation. President Lincoln had a team of rivals in his cabinet too. Governor Romney as Secretary of State and Senator Cruz as Attorney General would be a formidable team.
I admit waiting around is nerve racking but watching the media foam all over themselves is the antidote I need to get through the day.
