They are some of the biggest names in the Republican national security firmament, veterans of past GOP administrations who say, if called upon by President-elect Donald Trump, they stand ready to serve their country again.Here is a typical comment:
But their phones aren’t ringing. Their entreaties to Trump Tower in New York have mostly gone unanswered. In Trump world, these establishment all-stars say they are “PNG” — personae non gratae.
Their transgression was signing one or both of two public “Never Trump” letters during the campaign, declaring they would not vote for Trump and calling his candidacy a danger to the nation. ...
Some of the “Never Trump” letters signers fear they are at the bottom of the pecking order, below those who expressed verbal opposition to Trump’s campaign but did not sign either of the letters.
What were they expecting??? For Trump to say, "Awww, shucks, I know you didn't really mean it! C'mon in! Business as usual, boys!"And another:
They were as vile as the Dems. Why should those who behaved like children get to sit at the adults' table?
OK, Trump doesn't have much experience in some areas. He'll be able to find other competent advisors --without those losers. That's what any successful businessman would do.
Why would anyone hire someone who vowed to have you defeated?!Trump does not need back-stabbing Republicans. He might be better off hiring Democrats.
