Romney shows grace and class, but was he being played?
I’m wondering if Donald Trump was just toying with Mitt Romney to get back at him for standing against him. I wasn’t a fan of his when he ran for president. He was trying to be all things to all people, and even once called himself a progressive when he ran for governor of Massachusetts and contributed to Planned Parenthood. He twisted himself into a pretzel trying to appeal to the far right during the primaries and then tried to walk it back. He doesn’t have the gift of lying that Trump has.
If you look at the comments on his gracious Facebook post you’ll see that many of the comenters are as suspicious as I am about how he was treated. And it certainly would be consistent with Trump’s behavior to to stick it to a rival.
If you’re going to have a Republican administration, you could do a lot worse than Mitt Romney as Secretary of State. In fact, that’s just what Trump did.
