Donald Trump has set his vindictive sights on yet another vanquished foe and has invited Carly Fiorina to come to Trump tower to be dangled publicly before she is discarded in the pile of Trump cabinet hopefuls.
On Monday afternoon, Fiorina ascended the golden elevator at Trump tower to meet with the President-elect. The agenda: Fiorina’s possible appointment as the Director of National Intelligence.
Ever the sunny-day supporter, Fiorina chatted with reporters after her meeting with Trump and compared him to basketball star Shaquille O’Neal. Fiorina also said that the two bonded about their mutual hatred of China.
“It was an honor to meet with the president-elect. . . I was particularly taken by Shaq O’Neil’s shoe. I guess it takes a champion to know a champion.”
“We talked about hacking, whether it’s Chinese hacking or purported Russian hacking,”
Time will tell if Fiorina’s meeting with Trump will go the way of Mitt Romney and Chris Christie, or if she will find herself with a cozy position like Ben Carson.
Likely, because she did not hand her loyalty to Trump willingly, Fiorina is set to be tossed around the news cycle for a day or two until she is sufficiently humiliated and then put back into obscurity where she dwelled before Trump plucked her from her post-election blues.
But Fiorina won’t go down without a fight.
