Newt Gingrich desperately begs Donald Trump to let him be the VP nominee

Published

on

Newt Gingrich and Donald Trump have a lot in common. They’ve both had three wives, they both have a history of attacking the Clintons and they both seem to long for a political career that seems hopeless.

Perhaps, that’s why there is so much speculation surrounding the former House Speaker for the Trump VP shortlist. Gingrich has all but launched his own draft Newt efforts and proved he has been a Trump loyalist from the beginning.

“If a potential president says I need you, it would be very hard for a patriotic citizen to say no,” Gingrich told the New York Times. “People can criticize a nominee, but ultimately there are very few examples of people turning down the vice presidency.”

Trump, however, is more likely to look for a running mate that can get him votes and, other than Fox News watchers, most normal Americas have forgotten who Gingrich is. To the rest of the country, he’s nothing more than another old, white dude on TV.

Instead, Trump is looking into governors who can help him win. The New York Times names New Jersey governor Chris Christie, who has become an expert at looking uncomfortable standing behind Trump. Word has it, he’s also considering Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin whose chief accomplishment she could bring to the ticket is being a woman, who isn’t quite as dumb as Sarah Palin.

Shafer describes a pattern, explaining, “It starts with a reporter, usually a female reporter, asking President Donald Trump hard, tenacious questions at a news conference. Trump’s jaw seizes up, rattled and dumbfounded by the questions that he can’t or won’t answer. He abruptly ends the presser by saying, ‘Thank you very much’ and stalking out of the room.”

‘Silence is complicity’: GOP condemned for doing nothing as Trump openly touts sabotage of postal service

Published

"Donald Trump knows that if the people are heard in November, he and Republicans up and down the ballot will lose," said Sen. Elizabeth Warren. "This is what we're up against—and this is why we have to fight back with all we've got."

Voting rights advocates on Thursday took aim at Republicans in Congress for remaining silent in the face of President Donald Trump's open admission that he is blocking funding for the U.S. Postal Service with the express purpose of stopping an expansion of mail-in ballot access ahead of the November elections.
