Mitt Romney To Meet With “Phony, Lying, Dishonest, Fraud” Donald Trump To Discuss Secretary Of State Job

So much for Mitt Romney’s truly epic video slam of Trump, huh? NBC News reports:

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 that Romney 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.

During the primaries, Romney campaigned with Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the Buckeye State. Last week after the election, however, Romney called Trump to congratulate him on his surprise win.

Others reportedly under consideration for the secretary of state position include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and South 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.

  • AW

    Could be that he wants to protect the country… Someone like Mittens here actually somewhat cares about the country.

  • Pollos Hermanos

    As much as I can’t stand Mittens, this idea doesn’t completely panic me.

    • lymis

      I don’t like Romney. But if our overseas diplomatic decisions are going to be made by Romney, Giuliani, or Haley, I’ll go with Romney.

      Wonder where he’ll keep his emails.

      • Dagoril

        On a gold-plated email server.

      • Pollos Hermanos

        In the magic panties!

    • Skokieguy [Larry]

      We need at least some good hair in this administration. He’s 50% less horrifying than Guiliani. But then again, do we remember when Romney went on his grand foreign tour to help build his foreign policy cred and basically gaffed and embarrassed himself across Europe?

  • PLAINTOM

    Ambassador to Kolob

    • Pollos Hermanos

      Magic Panties Away!!!!!

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      Theyre doing all this mormon themed gay porn now.
      just sayin

      • PLAINTOM

        David does Kolob.

        • The_Wretched

          Slobbery kolob scenes.

          Originally it was spelled “skcollob” which is “bollocks” backwards but it was too hard to say. So they simplified it to ‘kolob’.

  • Tor

    I can’t see Mittens wanting to tie his wagon to this train wreck.

    • Cuberly

      Same here. I bet Anne is busy hurling the Limoges at the staff at the mere thought of it.

  • clay

    “How low can you go?”
    Limbo is now the official party game of the transition team.

  • Cipher

    Better Mittens than the 9-11 vampire.

  • PickyPecker
  • PLAINTOM

    The first potential Trump nominee who doesn’t scare the hell out of me.

    • MBear

      it should

      • J Ascher

        Perhaps it would be better put as “scares me the least of all the nominees so far.”

      • tristram

        Why? Of all those that Trump might possibly pick, Mitt is one of the better ones. Mitt was clear that he considers Russia/Putin a major threat, and he was a step ahead of Obama and a mile ahead of Trump on that.

    • Rex

      They all scare the hell outta me, each and every one.

  • Patrick Thomas

    If we’re going for Mormons, how about Jon Huntsman? Lots of experience in China, the key foreign power we’ll need to deal with moving forward. He’s also fluent in Mandarin.

    • FAEN

      TOO qualified for Dumpster.

    • Huntsman would actually be a good choice, but even Romney is vastly superior to the others mentioned so far. Giuliani is an asshole. Sometimes you want an asshole but not for diplomacy! Romney speaks French which comes in handy more often internationally than you might think.

      • Craig Howell

        French is the international language of love, war and diplomacy.

        This is not a coincidence.

    • PLAINTOM

      Ambassador to China ?

      • Patrick Thomas

        He already held that job, so it would be a lateral move for him.

        • PLAINTOM

          True

    • another_steve

      Oy vey, the Mormons. As a student of comparative religion, I’ve studied Mormonism.

      I’m sure there are many many good and loving Mormons, but the rest of them need to be institutionalized and treated for what is severe, severe mental illness.

      • MT YVR

        Honestly… find a Mormon who’s just come out. Like. That day.

        Then brace. Follow them and enjoy. But brace. Good LORD those boys mean to pack every sin in. And I mean that in alllllllll the ways it sounds.

        • another_steve

          I had a very young and very cute Jehovah Witness come to my door last Sunday.

          So I’m standing there, Jew bastard that I am, fantasizing about having him, right there, at the front door.

          I’m not proud of it, but I just want to share.

          • Dazzer

            Lucky you. The only Jehovas Witnesses who come to my door are elderly black ladies who seem t think I speak fluent Italian(I don’t).

          • another_steve

            Cultural/regional difference.

            Here in the heartland of Post-American-Civil War-But-Barely-Recovered-From-It America, we here in Maryland have it all. Here we have fuckable Jehovah Witnesses.

            Remember… We brought John Waters to the world.

          • MT YVR

            Woo hoo… “Oh, hey, I’ve a watchtower right here…”

            (ahem)

            And mine is as Awake! as ever.

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            There is a massive amount of Mormon themed porn on Xtube and other sites. Just seach for Mormon (duh) or Elder. {{heard from a friend}}

    • lymis

      It has to be someone Trump has heard of. That means either a past presidential run, a major Twitter account, or a lot of coverage on FOX.

      • Chucktech

        Or someone who read his orange ass but then kissed it by “congratulating him on his victory.”

  • T-Batwoman

    This is like watching a slow motion head on collision…….

  • Stephen Elliot Phillips

    yep people. this is why we lost the election.
    “Democrats fall in love. Republicans fall in line”

    • Brad Lathem

      They fall in line, we get into circular firing squads

    • bill weber

      Do you recall the things Obama and Clinton said about each other in ’08? Nothing unique to either side, except the higher volume perhaps.

      • Stephen Elliot Phillips

        oh here we go. the devils advocates are out again. Maybe Kay will come forth now with her “evidence” clinton is a criminal.
        youre comparing a primary with the general AND comparing our aftermath with theirs 4 years ago.
        In 2012 rethugs got in a think tank and came up with “we need to do more outreach to minorities”
        then what did they do? They doubled down on their hate of all things different and they won anyway.
        Know why? cause its a fucking cult that falls in line.

        • Chucktech

          “Devil’s Advocate” is quite a unique spelling of “troll.”

          • Todd20036

            There’s a reason I blocked him

          • ericxdc

            same here. quite a while back.

      • lymis

        I do recall the things Obama and Clinton said about each other, and in general it was disagreements about policy, not random insults based on physical appearance or twitter rumors.

      • Gerry Fisher

        “You’re likeable enough.”

    • Bared Bear

      Ain’t that the fucking truth. You have to be a goddam Emperor Palpatine to “inspire” 50% of people to vote.

    • Jeffrey

      That is the truest political comment ever and this cycle proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt. I know very few republicans who liked Trump, but they all voted for him. Meanwhile in liberalville “I just don’t like her, I’m voting for some esoteric person no ones ever heard of”

      • Chucktech

        “Ug! They’re both the same.” Of all the memes generated by this election, that was probably the most pernicious and untrue, yet robust and enduring, meme of them all.

    • joe ho

      And, as Jan Brewer smugly asserts in AZ, “Don’t worry. Hispanics don’t vote.”

    • Cboulder

      I think one could reply to the 1st point that love is too strong a word in this case

  • sfbob

    It it disloyal of me to observe that Romney would by definition become the least crazy member of Trump’s entire administration? Who knows? He might even be able to save just a bit of our face at the international level. As it stands now most of the world thinks we’ve gone off the deep end. Mittens might not be great but Trump could do a whole lot worse. And on reflection I suspect he actually will.

  • Ninja0980

    Didn’t want him as president but won’t mind him here, considering the alternatives.

    • joe ho

      I want the craziest person possible in every position. To speed the end of Trump.

      • Todd20036

        That won’t happen

        • joe ho

          The same poli-sci professor who stood by his prediction of trump’s election, based on political cycles, not voter polls, now predicts he will be impeached. He plays fast and loose with the law and that will catch up with him.

          • David Walker

            Interesting.

          • Chucktech

            For what, I wonder…

          • Todd20036

            Only if he pisses off too many people

  • Screw you, Trump and team, for making Mitt Romney seem a preferable choice for America. 🖕

    Go fuck yourself Bernie.
    IMO, you played as much of a part in our base not turning out as did voter id laws and other methods of suppression.

    • bill weber

      Hmmm? He didn’t say this during the general campaign. (Also, it’s the truth.)

  • FAEN

    #morallybankrupt

    • David Walker

      The whole fucking upcoming “team” is morally bankrupt. A lot of the country is, too. That’s no longer a down side.

      • I just adore how they “drained the swamp” right into their administration.

  • another_steve

    This is why no honorable person in 2016 is affiliated with the Republican Party.

    You can hold Republican principles and be an honorable person, but you cannot be a registered Republican in 2016 and be an honorable person.

  • Bared Bear

    The smell of Rafalca droppings and Iris setter terror is strong in this one. He’ll do. So sure. Why not? While you’re at it dig up Reagan, Strom Thurmond, and Jesse Helms, too. They’ve just been lying around doing nothing but rotting.

  • Rebecca Gardner
    • Chris H.

      Never targeted specific groups?!?! Haha. He must think 25% of ‘mericans are dumb or something…oh wait.

    • Jay George

      Good! I was not looking forward to wearing one.

      • BobSF_94117

        On a bad hair day, I would totally do it.

        • William

          I wear a hat.

    • lymis

      There’s actually legal precedent for why that would get shot down. I don’t know the cite, but a law was once passed that effectively banned yarmulkes for everyone, and the courts saw right through it. The same would be true of burqas.

    • Just how stupid do they think we are for them to say it never targeted a specific group? Ok, don’t answer that…..

  • ETownCanuck

    Geez, is there not one politician down there that can actually stand by their convictions without caving in the second he might be considered for a position?

    So now international diplomacy is to run according to the rules of arbitrage? It’s no longer to be statecraft, but mergers and acquisitions, followed by the inevitable downsizing and off-shoring? Maybe they are planning to sell Alaska back to the Russians (though I doubt they could afford it at this point. Maybe to the Chinese instead).

    • William

      Putin claims Alaska was leased, not purchased.

      • There are many Russians who want Alaska back, and believe that we never paid the full amount for it as promised. Singers have written songs about how it was “stolen”. It’s all noise to distract the Russians. Which leads me to wonder, what is it that is supposed to distract us, reality tv?

  • Rex

    All those nasty comments, just sarcasm.

  • Jack

    If trump is out to take us down, go with Giuliani.

  • bob

    It’s really pathetic! trump does enjoy taking every last bit of self esteem from them.

    • boatboy_srq

      As well someone should: about time they were robbed of their respectability given how little of that is actually earned. It would be amusing if the horror weren’t quite so near.

  • Dazzer

    O/T Tonight on Channel 4 News in the UK, presenter Cathy Newman had Milo Yannowotsisface on. After she bit off his kneecaps, she then tore out his jugular and kicked his corpse around the room.

    It was very entertaining.

    • boatboy_srq

      There are parts of the planet where journalism – even journalism on the state payrolls – is alive and well. Too bad the US sold theirs in 30-second slices.

      • Dazzer

        Channel 4 News is the absolute best TV news in the UK. All the journalists are well informed and don’t take shit from anyone. You can tell that government ministers spend all day prepping with their civil servants before they do an interview.

        And they still get called out for their lying and hypocrisy.

    • William

      Was he in Britain or being interviewed via satellite? If he is out of the US, we need to close the borders.

      • Dazzer

        He’s in Britain.

        Also, his frosted tips dye job looks like shit.

        • agcons

          It’s terribly difficult to frost twats properly, I’ve heard.

        • William

          Put him in a cage on the plinth in Trafalgar Square. Schoolchildren can view him as a cautionary tale and hair don’t.

          • Dazzer

            Nah, we’ve already had a giant bollock on the spare plinth. And it was better looking than Milo.

    Maybe as someone on the Nikki Haley thread mentioned – he’s just bringing him in to say “no fucking way” and “fuck off”

  • joe ho

    Even Joy Reid is predicting that Democrats will pretty much bow in submission, too, abandoning their culturally diverse base. “Run they will.”

  • Careful, world leaders. When Romney pays a state visit, don’t give him your birth information! He’ll use it to sign you up for the LDS after you die. Just keep the conversation to matters of state. Oh, and don’t serve tea. Canned tuna is okay. He ate some once. Ann never got over it. They say she had to go riding afterward on her bumpiest dressage horse just to get it down.

  • bob

    Is trump the new caligula? the fisting scene comes to mind.

        I absolutely loved Helen Mirren declaiming:”Party at my palace with the Vestal Virgins”.

      • Jay George

        That movie, to me, was based on the idea of, “if you thought that last scene was uncomfortable, wait till you see the one coming up.” I didn’t make it all the way through and that was the 70s when I was a lot tougher.

    The wife is hurtin’ for him to get a job. He’s been hanging around doing laying on of hands with the current Romney dog, faith healing the neighbors’ cats and making a general nuisance of himself. Anne is going to strangle him if he doesn’t get out from under her feet ASAP.

    Romney: that was then, this is now… Jesus, Mary and holy Saint Joseph, how are we to survive the next four years? Looking on the bright side, I guess this means Giuliani (an insult to all Italian-Americans) is out of the running?

    Integrity?! Excuse me, I’m a Republican.

    Trump is making them all guests on The Apprentice. He’s trotting them each before the camera. Interviewing them. Playing one against another. All to ultimately dump them and humiliate them for all the world to see. He already knows who he is going to appoint.

    He’s conducting the transition as if it were a reality show. And I suppose it is exactly that.

    • Bob Conti

      How about strapped to the top of Air Force One?

    If Mitt had any integrity, he’d not even bother to meet with the thing,

    so….for a short time I actually thought Romney was a decent person with Dignity…now we know the old saying – Every Man has a PRICE $$$$$ …….self respect doesn’t pay.. PATHETIC

  • Richard

    So Mitt wants to jump in the swamp with the rest of the deplorables….talk about “a phony”

  • Richard

    Trying to get Democrats to unite is like herding cats. When you hear comments from democrats like ” I didn’t like the sound of her voice” so they vote for the green loser it make you want to scream.

  • Gianni

    Trump must be having quite a personal laugh about all this – how these former opponents, who rigorously insulted and opposed him, now come crawling as he beckons them to approach the throne. Apparently, embarrassment is not a known feeling/condition to them.
