Mitt Romney dined with Donald Trump and had a huge slice of humble pie for dessert

Mitt Romney dined with Donald Trump and the press ate it up.

The failed 2012 presidential candidate enjoyed dinner with President-elect Trump at French eatery Jean-Georges near New York’s Central Park amid continuing speculation that Romney is being considered for Secretary of State.

Reince Priebus also attended the dinner, where the unsuspecting trio was photographed by several sharp-eyed reporters.

The dinner menu for the president-elect included the following, according to the NY Post:

  • Appetizers: Garlic soup with thyme and sautéed frog legs
  • Small plates: Diver scallops with caramelized cauliflower and a caper raisin emulsion
  • Main Course: Prime sirloin with a citrus glaze or lamb chops with mushroom bolognese sauce.
  • Dessert: Chocolate cake (and humble pie for Mittens).

Romney — who did everything he could to stop Trump from getting elected — said he feels optimistic about the future of the United States with Trump as president:

“I happen to think America’s best days are ahead of us and I think you’re going to continue to see America lead the world in this century. And what I’ve seen through these discussions I’ve had with president-elect Trump — as well as his selection as part of his transition — all of those things combined give me increasing hope that president-elect Trump is the very man that can lead us to that future.”

Romney’s sycophantic praise is a shocking about-face from months ago, when he held two press conferences to trash Trump as a “fraud, a phony, and a con man.”

Surprise! Trump endorses former foe Mitt Romney for senate
