The ex-Hewlett-Packard CEO, Fiorina who during the Republican Primaries suggested moving nuclear weapons into Eastern Europe to display a clear defiance to our Russian Ally, is reportedly being considered for the role of director of national intelligence. “It was an honor to meet with the president-elect,” Fiorina told reporters before praising the “really cool” sports memorabilia in Trump’s office. “I was particularly taken by Shaq O’Neil’s shoe,” she explained. “I guess it takes a champion to know a champion.” Fiorina said that the two spent “a fair amount of time talking about China.” “We talked about hacking, whether it’s Chinese hacking or purported Russian hacking,” she added, hinting that she sided with Trump in his disagreement with the U.S. intelligence agencies which have concluded Russia tried to influence the U.S. election. Fiorina also praised Trump for filling his administration with “fantastic people.” “The high quality of people that he’s named already says so much about his executive abilities, but it also says that people recognize the opportunity that our new president-elect has to really make a huge impact on people’s lives in this country,” she opined. “So, it was an honor for me to be there.”
