Mitt Romney Had Dinner With Donald Trump and Everything's Fine With Them Now

Exceedingly polite hypocrite Mitt Romney sat down for a meal with orange idiot Donald Trump and Reince Priebus Tuesday night. God knows what transpired during that meal, but reports from the press pool immediately after the dinner confirm that ol’ Mittens now has “increasing hope” that a Trump presidency could steer this dumb country of ours towards a “better future.”


The Boston Globe reports that the three men sat down for a leisurely and expensive meal at Jean-Georges in New York, dining on steak, lamb chops and garlic soup with frog legs and thyme before sharing a single slice of chocolate cake for dessert, like the good old pals they are. According to CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who happened to be at Jean Georges as well, the conversation between the three men was pleasant.

They were also treated to fresh marshmallows, prepared table-side. What a treat!

You’ll recall that while Trump was campaigning for President, old boy spent a considerable amount of time earlier this year railing against the Preisdent-elect, most memorably calling him a “phony” and a “fraud” while also accusing him of “playing members of the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat.”

But now, with Romney reportedly under “serious consideration” to be Secretary of State alongside with spittle-flecked gopher Rudy Giuliani and David Petraeus in the running too, I guess he had to put his pride in a box and shove it way, way back on the top shelf of his closet, never to be seen again.


For a few weeks, Giuliani was the only one in the running, despite massive conflicts of interest and could’ve easily taken the shiny present out of Trump’s curiously small hands – a proposition even more terrifying than this dinner of crepey-skinned men at a restaurant in Midtown. Mittens eating dinner and making nice nice isn’t quite eating crow, but it’s good enough for Trump, who apparently has the selective memory of a goldfish.

Can we stop criticizing Mitt for going for SOS? He’s sane, competent, and qualified-qualities sorely lacking in most of Trump’s cabinet picks. Also, he’s at least somewhat willing to criticize Trump, at least enough to completely unhinge Kelly Anne. I take that as a good sign.
