Trump loyalists feel 'betrayed' over Romney role

If it were not for Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump might be the one calling for a voter recount of the presidential election. But Trump won and now it's "Hypocritical Hillary" calling for the measure.

Now as the Trump transition team try to come up with a pick for secretary of state, Conway spoke on several media outlets Sunday making a public case against the selection of Mitt Romney saying that Trump's supporters feel betrayed by the possibility of Romney as a pick.

Conway, true to the end, says she'll support whomever Trump picks, but argues that grass-roots Trumpsters who hung in there against apparent horrible odds feel let down about Romney, since he called Trump a "con man" and a "phony." He even spoke out against Trump University, implying that a degree from that school is 'useless.'

Trump's team are apparently split over the choices of Romney versus a true and early Trump loyalist, Rudy Giuliani, a former GOP nominee.

Incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, a man with a good brain and odd name appeared on "Fox New Sunday" where he minimized rumors of vicious infighting over the decision of who will head the State Department. Priebus said that Trump is "going to make the best decision for the American people."

Conway, however, suggested a clear division of opinion.

"We don't even know if (Romney) voted for Donald Trump," she said on CNN's "State of the Union," a network that obviously favored Hillary Clinton for president and has been referred to as the "Clinton News Network" by yours truly. 

"He and his consultants were nothing but awful to Donald Trump for a year . . . I'm all for party unity, but I'm not sure we have to pay for that with the secretary of state position. I think there are concerns that those of us that are loyal have, and we want a secretary of state who's loyal to the president."

Conway has privately expressed her thoughts to Trump and will respect whatever the President-elect decides. However, she Tweeted that the larger "point is the volume & intensity of grass-roots resistance to Romney is breathtaking."

The question that many Trump supporters may now have is whether or not he is just another lying person who will, like Hillary Clinton, say anything at all to get elected.

Like the wall. Like Obamacare. Like jobs. Like 'locking her up.'
