What power does a 70+ year old frosh Senator from Utah have? Romney isn't going to anything that a replacement level Utah politician is going to do.

Not much, I'll grant. But greater than that of an unsuccessful presidential candidate or a former governor.

The writers for the 2018 season really need to be more subtle.
I was a bit puzzled as to why those two would be their poster couple, anyway. Neither was even stock photography model-worthy. It seemed to send a "this is for people with low expectations" vibe. Not that there isn't potentially a market for that, but it seems weird attached to something as relentlessly self-promotional as Trumpism.

The writers of 2018 seem to just be going full irony:

Those usually use the generic stock photos, often without the watermark removed.

Maybe a Trumpkin site is the local karaoke dive bar of dating sites?

Romney might care about his legacy in Utah among his co-religionists. Maybe a bishopric or a replica set of golden plates that only he can look at.

to be fair, this is how you prep people for public speaking. you'd be surprised how hard it is to keep seasoned professionals on message, particularly during tough times.

Trump's horse was unavailable as he was undergoing an interview to run the USDA. The Senate hearings for this would be amazing.
One industry insider equated this to the Seinfeld episode when Cosmo Kramer used his golf caddy as a jury consultant. A senior administration official told me that comparison is completely unfair.
Oh and bonus for Warren.

Objectively, Trump's private pilot is more qualified to run the FAA than Ben Carson is to run HUD (or Jared Kushner to run anything)

Truth.

Will the next SCOTUS vacancy be filled by his divorce attorney?

Objectively, I'm more qualified to be Fed Chair or Secretary of Treasury than Carson at HUD and Kushner for anything, but that still doesn't make it a good idea.

As a side note, I would totally accept a nomination for either.

The one benefit of Trump's divorce attorney on SCOTUS would be a judge with actual trial experience other than as a prosecutor.

What I would really like to see is anyone who spent five or more years as a public defender.
