People Think Mitt Romney Is Crying For Help In This Dinner Pic With Trump
Mitt Romney – who liberals hated in 2012, but now miraculously love because our next president is a man-baby – had dinner with Donald Trump at Trump International Hotel in New York on Tuesday night.

A picture of this romantic rendezvous was all the rage on Twitter this morning… particularly because it makes Romney look like a terrified little boy who’s been kidnapped.
It wasn’t too long ago that Romney dedicated an entire speech to why Trump was a “phony” and unfit to be president. This was the political equivalent of a feud between rappers, minus the dope beats and killer rhymes.
Now, however, Trump is considering picking him for secretary of state. So, Romney is trying to make nice with the führer… excuse me, president-elect.
Life comes at you fast. But this process looks pretty painful.
Romney, we’re so sorry.

The former presidential candidate’s eyes capture the pain, shock and utter confusion much of the country has been feeling ever since Trump got elected. Seriously: WTF, America?

Romney basically just had dinner with Darth Vader (but with much smaller hands).

This is super awkward.

We feel you, dude.
Trump: Just look at the flowers, Mitt. Just look at the flowers.

This was clearly Romney’s biggest nightmare.

Who does Romney remind you of?

Trump looks way too happy about Romney’s suffering.

At least we got a lot of good memes out of this. Hopefully, that will offer Romney some comfort.

After dinner, Romney said,
I had a wonderful evening with President-elect Trump.
We had another discussion about affairs throughout the world, and these discussions I’ve had with him have been enlightening, and interesting, and engaging.
A “wonderful evening,” he says.
In all seriousness, Romney is arguably the best candidate for secretary of state out of all the people Trump is reportedly considering.
The shortlist includes former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, retired general David Petraeus and Senate Foreign Relations chair Bob Corker.
Giuliani – who made a habit of making offensive and controversial remarks throughout the election cycle – is not exactly someone you’d describe as diplomatic.
Meanwhile, Petraeus infamously shared classified information with his biographer-slash-lover, which is a big no-no when it comes to protecting the country’s interests.
And Corker seems very unlikely to get the job, which even he recently admitted.
Regardless of the person Trump selects, it’s certainly going to be interesting to see how he deals with foreign affairs as president. Let’s just hope he won’t go on Twitter rants when foreign leaders piss him off.
