Eliot A. Cohen served as Counselor to the United States Department of State under Secretary Condoleezza Rice from 2007 to 2009.
His initial position was as follows:
I am a national security Never-Trumper who, after the election, made the case that young conservatives should volunteer to serve in the new administration, warily, their undated letters of resignation ready. That advice, I have concluded, was wrong.
He’s seemingly changed his opinion after opening Pandora’s box and seeing the mess inside:
Mr. Cohen is one of the growing number of Republicans who are now placing their heads in their hands while muttering “What were you thinking?”
We know the feeling Eliot. I have an inkling that in the first half of 2017 many of those who voted for Trump will be experiencing the same.
If I lived in Washington DC right now I would have read that tweet and immediately started a company providing delivery of anti-depressants and alcohol 24/7.
