Regular readers of this blog site know that I have little use for Donald Trump and even less use for Kellyanne Conway. But this has nothing to do with those feelings.
Kellyanne Conway took her concerns about the potential appointment of Mitt Romney as Secretary of State to the airwaves and the media. I understand her viewpoint…I understand her concern.
BUT she is in Mr. Trump’s inner circle and has his ear. She can make her concerns known privately and she says she has done that. But it makes it look like the transition team is totally out of control. And she claims she is doing it for party unity…
This is scary stuff because at some point party unity has to give way to national security. The president’s team can’t be running to the media if or when they disagree with the president. The president’s decision needs to be respected and supported. The world can’t see how the sausage gets made in the West Wing. They need to see a unified front in leadership.
If she pulls something like this after January 20th, she should be tried for treason.
(of course she may be doing this at the behest of Donald Trump…in which case this is even scarier…proving once again he is unqualified to be president)
