[Ed. – If the shoe fits?]
In the days following President Donald Trump’s impeachment acquittal, Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah — the only Republican to vote with Democrats to convict the president in the Senate trial — has been the object of almost daily scorn. Over the weekend, Trump singled out Romney in a long tweetstorm, claiming that he “hurt some very good Republican Senators, and he was wrong about the Impeachment Hoax.”
Few observers are surprised by Trump’s fury at those who participated in the effort to oust him from office. Most, however, have failed to notice one of the biggest ironies of the Trump administration: It has repeatedly endorsed, hired and elevated critics and opponents.
Now that the effort to remove Trump from office has failed, perhaps the president should get serious about addressing the threats and bad advice, specifically when it comes to an unsexy but incredibly important element of governing: staffing.
