Kellyanne Conway leveled a most unusual criticism over the weekend.
Her boss, Donald J. Trump, has invited Mitt Romney to visit with him for the purpose of deciding whether he wants the 2012 Republican presidential nominee to be the next secretary of state.
Conway, though, doesn’t want Mitt to take the job. He doesn’t want the president-elect to consider him for the job.
I cannot remember ever hearing a transition flunky question out loud the actions of a president-elect. Not one time have I heard such a thing.
However, this is what is happening.
Conway managed the Trump campaign to victory against Hillary Rodham Clinton. Trump is the president-elect. Conway is his hired hand. She works for him.
Now she’s questioning his judgment in interviewing Mitt Romney for the most visible Cabinet post in the new administration?
I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts the chaos that has developed in the Trump transition effort. I believe Conway’s anti-Mitt rhetoric illustrates the chaos perfectly.
