Trumps’ VP pick

It’s a time-honored tradition for politicians to deny any interest in the vice presidency. But this year, with the possibility of Donald J. Trump as the Republican nominee, they really mean it.

“Never,” said Chris Schrimpf, a spokesman for Gov. John Kasich of Ohio, who is still running against Mr. Trump. “No chance.”

“Hahahahahahahahaha,” wrote Sally Bradshaw, a senior adviser to Jeb Bush, when asked if he would consider it.

“Scott Walker has a visceral negative reaction to Trump’s character,” said Ed Goeas, a longtime adviser to the Wisconsin governor.

Maybe Bernie would do it though?

  1. Condie Rice had the misfortune to have her talents unappreciated because of her service to the Bush regime. A highly intelligent principled person with intimate understanding of the world beyond the USA would balance and restrain Trump’s buffoonery. As a black woman she absolutely outranks Hillary.

  2. Bernie? Yes,. They’re both from New York and they are both talking the same protectionist shit.

  3. The Inimitable Steve

    In other news, ugly girls affirm they never wanted to be asked to the school dance anyway.

  4. “Mr. Trump said he wanted someone with “a strong political background, who was well respected on the Hill, who can help me with legislation, and who could be a great president.””

    The three listed were all meh governors so they don’t fit anyway. Cruz is also out as he isn’t even respected in hell, let alone Washington.

  5. Christie probably wants to be Attorney General so he can ramp up the War on Drugs. He was a US Attorney (ie. prosecutor) before becoming Governor.

  6. No but it is funny. Satanists don’t normally get their political opinions into the MSM. Cruz has to be pretty bad to get an insider like theHill to divert from the talking points.

  7. ‘they really mean it’

    Sure, they mean it today. But they will undergo a miraculous transformation once Trump is nominated. Principled politician is oxymoron.

  8. So Much For Subtlety

    Gamecock – “Sure, they mean it today. But they will undergo a miraculous transformation once Trump is nominated. Principled politician is oxymoron.”

    Actually it is simpler than that. The Republican Establishment is going through the five stages of grief in the Kübler-Ross model. They started out with denial, moved on to anger, it looks like they are up to bargaining, and so they have depression and acceptance to go.

    The voters will have to go through the same process too. On both sides. Sanders looks like he has moved on rapidly from anger to bargaining but it is hard to see what his little munchkins are doing. The Republican voters seem to have reached acceptance already.

    Because in the end, it is voting with the Trumpkin or eight years of Hillary.

    I would be his VP if I had the choice. Sure he seems to be intent on humiliating Christie and that does not bode well. But it is bound to be a barrel of laughs, there will be a great book in it, and there’s a good chance he will die shouting at the Chinese, or quit once he is bored or get shot. So I would be President. Then I would rule from a Throne of Skulls and drench the land in blood.

  9. Er Tim, for a guy who’s got two posts ripping other persons’ headlines, you might want to count how many Trumps get to choose a VP candidate. Or did you just put that there because you knew I’d be reading?

  10. SMFS,

    While I don’t agree with your platform I trust you to stick to it more than the current lot.

    I’ve decided that I am going to write in my vote this year. The vote will get thrown out, thank you Pennsylvania T, because I’m not an official candidate. While I don’t completely trust myself not to get corrupted by Washington at least I really like my platform.
