Anyone want to wager what Putin threatened to publicly release, if Trump didn’t pick Tillerson? — Amy Siskind (@Amy_Siskind) December 10, 2016
Other reactions are focusing on Mitt Romney, who was paraded around as a possible pick for weeks.
I’m sure its just a coincidence that guy Trump picks out of the blue for SecState-who has no previous gov experience-got a medal from Putin. — Ken Gude (@KenGude) December 10, 2016
<<whispers>> of course it was never going to be Mitt. — Christopher Hayes (@chrislhayes) December 10, 2016
Man they really hung Romney out to dry. — Rosie Gray (@RosieGray) December 10, 2016
how many times is Trump going to “scorpion and the frog” Republicans like Mitt before they figure out he’s *always* going to sting them? — JuanPa (@jpbrammer) December 10, 2016
Let Mitt Romney’s humiliation be a lesson to you. — southpaw (@nycsouthpaw) December 10, 2016
Now, we wait for the confirmation hearings to find out what is going to happen. If these reactions are any indication, it’s going to be very dramatic. [image: screengrab] Lindsey: Twitter. Facebook.
As a huge fan of watching Mitt Romney get jerked around, I’m torn. — Daniel Kibblesmith❄️ (@kibblesmith) December 10, 2016
