No love for Mike Pence?


Actually, I think *PAB45 will need no running mate--his first act will be to suspend the Constitution, then declare martial law, then eliminate all political opposition, then shut down the three branches of government. He will declare himself dictator-for-life and only then will the bad stuff really begin.


Ah, so much to look forward to....

Maybe Kristi Noem or Kari Lake; they’re both more than obsequious enough for him, and they’re both “his type”.

That would make Ivanka so jealous…

Also I forgot to add Alina Habba to that list.

Kari Lake is pretty much a lock for the Arizona Senate. I doubt she'd give that up. I would love to be wrong.

She is polling second to Democrat R. Gallego with independent (& former Dem) Sinema in third. The question is which way Sinema supporters break if she drops out as expected. Gellego already has a strong lead among woman.

Still, I don't see Lake dropping her senate run.

Lake barely lost the governorship. Barely. She gets all of those votes in my opinion. Gallego should have never entered the race.

This should have been a poll!

I think the suspended constitution - no VP needed answer is the most realistic one, but he'll have to select someone to get elected to become dictator for life (or to lose and mount his 2nd insurrection.)

He shouldn't pick Kari Lake, the AZ Senate race is too important. But he does love to sow maximum chaos, and a Lake pick would do that, and also signal he's not actually trying to win just sop it to his base with his victimization complex..

The real answer should be "whoever Putin tells him to select" most likely Tucker Carlson or some other alt-white deplorable who can command a large audience (Joe Rogan?) for the self perpetuating persecution complex fundraising machine... These people are so out of touch I don't think they even feel the need to bring in their token person of color for the optics, so it's not going to be Tim Scott or anyone else with darker melanin than the palest of incels living in mama's basement. But the smart money is still on one of his kids. Donald & Eric '24! ( I think Ivanka's done with the politics and Don Jr would look funny on a campaign yard sign.)

I was going to say Don Jr., but with all those judgements to pay, the old man needs to find someone almost as allegedly rich as he (thinks he) is. Let the bidding begin!

Who would do whatever he wanted no matter what? Who would break the law? No compromises and no excuses. Who would go to prison for him?

That's his running mate. He doesn't care about being president.

Hmmm... could it be... horseface?



But in all seriousness, I think it's likely to be one of Tim Scott, Kristi Noem, or Elise Stefanik. The reason being that Dump values "loyalty" above all else.

I use the word "loyalty" in quotes, of course, because-- as we all know-- the problem with it is that "loyalty" to Dump also requires completely throwing away your own career, including any possible future prospects, and running the risk of Dump knifing you in the back in the end.

disagree - Elise brings NY with her - Noem brings SD which is already Trumpy - Lake is a loser, so not her. I think Tim Scott and Elsie are to top choices. Trump wants to WIN - he's not looking for a date.

And I will say it right now - she ain't gonna be a senator!

That surprises me. I have thinking there isn't a chance in hell that Trump could win a plurality in New York state to get their Electoral College votes no matter who his running mate is. Does Stefanic have that much pull throughout the state of New York?

I'm inclined to think the choice will depend on who he can trust to NOT attempt to invoke the 25th Amendment and TO allow fake electors during electoral counts. So Junior or Elise Stefanik may be his best bets. Any of the tools on the House Judiciary Committee would work, also.

Are we talking about the same trump??

The guy I’m referring to wants both

See:
- Alina Habba
- Hope Hicks
- Brooke Rollins
- Caroline Sunshine
- Madeleine Westerhout
- Mina Chang
etc.

Yeah, he's not winning NY ever. It used to be geographically important but it's much less so in our polarizing era.

That's just an unflattering pic of Elise. He doesn't mind being photographed with her:



... birds of a feather?

Oh, and yes it's true that he'll never take NY, but it's less about that and more about someone he thinks will be loyal to him and that he can control. In other words, someone whose pü$$y he can grab, either in a literal or metaphorical sense.

Lake needs to concede that she lost the gov election before she takes any other office.

At least that would be nice if she had to.

[P01135809] wants to WIN

Does he though? I think he has more to gain by losing again.

He doesn't understand or respect the power of the office of the Presidency.
He continues to demonstrate that on a daily basis.
His fans likewise demonstrate that they don't understand what truly makes America great.

He's just starting to learn how much trouble he can get in under a system that has a rule of law.

Which is perhaps the biggest argument to make to claim that he wants to win. He wins and his legal troubles go away, or so he thinks.

Because there's no chance in Hades Trump would put a woman on the ticket.

If he thinks it will help him grift more get the Presidency, he'd select a can of tuna for VP.

Once he's got the position, his VP is irrelevant and he can then concentrate on working to stay in power after 2028 (and continuing his grift.)

Yeah, anyone who will grovel to him sufficiently and in his calculus help him win the election will do.

Haley would be the biggest Venn capture, except that Orange Galactic Embarrassment has poisoned his base against her. Is there another Haley/Harris clone in available in MAGAt flavor (cough*George Santos*cough)? Even if there is one, I expect the high Evangelical proportion of the base to be rabidly against a female running mate. It's one of the attributes that helped PAB45 to win against Clinton, how can they accept a female VP if they won't accept female pastors?
