Ed Rollins, former Ronald Reagan campaign manager, told conservative radio host Laura Ingraham Monday that he would be bothered by the selection of Mitt Romney as secretary of state.

In fact, Rollins said he was bothered by the fact that President-elect Donald Trump even talked to Romney in the first place this past weekend.

The reason: The 2012 GOP nominee was the "biggest bomb-thrower" against Trump's candidacy.

"I have to be perfectly honest, it bothers me a little bit. I think Romney went above and beyond the pale," Rollins told Ingraham. "You can basically say I'm not going to vote for you, I disagree with you, but he was the nominee four years ago. A lot of us weren't very happy about that, but we voted for him, we supported him. To not show up at the convention, to basically feel like he was the opposition, which he was all the way through, it bothered me immeasurably."

According to Politico, Ingraham said Romney was the "most vicious" of the GOP Never Trumpers and showed bad judgment for breaking Reagan's 11th commandment: "Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican."

"It shows very bad judgment to me … he had an obligation to the party to bring it together," Rollins said. "He didn't. He was the biggest bomb-thrower."
