A large number of "Never Trump" national security Republicans are learning the hard way that they can't trash Trump and expect everything to just be hunky dory.

These "Never Trump" Republicans are feeling left out in the cold and think they are on a White House do-not-hire list.

“If called upon by President-elect Donald Trump, they stand ready to serve their country again, but their phones aren’t ringing. Their entreaties to Trump Tower in New York have mostly gone unanswered.” Reports The Washington Post.

These veterans of past Republican administrations are some of the biggest names in the Republican national security world, including the first Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, retired Air Force Gen. Michael Hayden, who formerly directed the CIA and the NSA, and former trade ambassadors Carla Hills and Robert Zoellick. Unlike others who were silent or stayed neutral during the presidential campaign, these people spoke out publicly and decidedly against Trump.

These are not just some random employees. They are some of the most powerful names in the Republican national security sphere including former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, retired Air Force Gen. Michael Hayden and former trade ambassadors Carla Hills and Robert Zoellick. These GOP members couldn't keep their traps shut and aggressively attacked Trump and it's not working out the way they hoped.

More from Daily Caller:

“We commit ourselves to working energetically to prevent the election of someone so utterly unfitted to the office,” read one particularly harsh letter signed by 122 of these GOP national security leaders. They called his trade policies “a recipe for disaster” and said his view of American influence and power on the world stage is “wildly inconsistent” and “unmoored in principle.” He has “utter contempt” for Mexico, the letter said, and “endangers” the safety of Muslims. He is “fundamentally dishonest,” they added.
But now that Trump is hiring, some of them are surprised and concerned to see their friends flirt with the incoming administration regarding potential jobs, while they remain empty handed, stuck in what WaPo calls a “state of indefinite limbo.”

Trump’s political advisers have put them on a blacklist, some of them told WaPo, maybe even an “enemies” list. “It’s hostile,” one person told WaPo on condition of anonymity. “It’s not just that we’re frozen out. … I was told they said there was an enemies list.”

The only thing remarkable about these GOP security employees is that they seem to be surprised they are left out in the cold.
