Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 25, 2016

Members of Donald Trump's transition are weighing whether to make Mitt Romney apologize to Trump if he hopes to become Secretary of State, Ed Henry of Fox News reports. Romney was a prominent critic of Trump's candidacy, making a March speech laying out the many ways he was unqualified to be president. "Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. He gets a free trip to the White House and all we get is this lousy hat," Romney said. "There is a dark irony in his boasts of his sexual exploits during the Vietnam War, while at the same time, John McCain -- who he has mocked -- was imprisoned and tortured." Romney visited Trump last week in Bedminster, New Jersey, and said that the meeting was a "very thorough and in-depth discussion." His name has been floated along with Rudy Giuliani and others to lead State.

Assuming he wants to hire Romney, the normal thing to do would be to hire him and then just say "we worked it out" if anyone asks about Romney's comments.

Forcing a public apology would just be further confirmation that Trump is childishly petty and would make his new Secretary of State look weak.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a classic Trumple-cross where he makes Romney apologize and then appoints Palin as SOS anyway.

I think Romney was floated as Secretary of State solely for this public humiliation. Dear Leader gets his apology and Romney still doesn't end up as Secretary of State.

Trump is obsessed with revenge and showing dominance. He has bragged often in speeches and books about how important vengeance is to him.

These are, of course, terrible traits in a president. I don't expect his presidency to end well.

Palin as SOS

Well. She has been keeping an eye on Russia for us.

I'm pretty sure Donnie wanted to win the presidency so he could settle old scores.

Just wait until you see what he does to Rosie O'Donnell.

Romney's a douche bag, but it's funny to see the "80s called" set freak out over his possible appointment.

If all he wants is an apology that is pretty magnanimous of him. Shows a willingness to let it be water under the bridge. If everyone in DC was that way it would be a more productive place.

If Romney apologizes, capitulation will be complete -- worse than France, no more French surrendering jokes, they'll all be replaced by 'Romney BOHICA for Trump' jokes.

Romney might as well turn over all the Romney women folk (on both sides of the Romney family) for Donald Effing Trump to violate, defile, and ----- grab until the end to Mormon time.

Donald Trump: Mitt Romney 'would have dropped to his knees' for my endorsement

If the non-human must be a reptile named Romney apologizes to the Orange Adulterer, humiliation HAS to be complete.

If it happens, I wonder how many people will tune in to the spectacle of Trump giving Romney the Orange Facial? Talk about a ratings bonanza.

I think Giuliani's got the job sewed up.

Romney's being played for a fool. But then, he's an easy target so who knows whether or not he'll end up on his knees again. It's not like that's something new to him.
