Trump: the Vice President Is Just Window Dressing for Elections

GOP front-runner and former President Donald Trump ended the year with an interview with Breitbart at his Mar-a-Lago estate. In this interview, he pointed out a simple truth, no VP has TRULY mattered since Johnson replaced Kennedy. They may “assume” duties while the President is incapacitated for a medical procedure or other incident. However, they are little more than window dressing for the election season.

“If you study the history of presidential runs, a vice president has never made a difference—which is surprising. It’s a one-night story, and then they’re back to a regular evening. They’re voting for the president. They’re not voting for the vice president. There has, not that I can think of, never been a vice president that’s made much of a difference in terms of nomination and in terms of even winning the election.”

For Trump, he sees the situation for what it is. With remarks that resemble the same ones Brian Lewis (played by Nick Searcy) gives in the underrated Chris Rock movie “Head of State,” Trump went on to claim that he still feels pressured with this decision.

“So, look, we have some very good people—the same people you know. They’re good people. We have some people that would like me to run with certain others. Maybe I can’t do that because you have to go with what your gut tells you. Winning is very important. Look, if we don’t win this, I think this country is finished. I actually do.”

With multiple donors pushing Trump to choose former SC Governor Nikki Haley as his VP choice, it’s way too early to call her that. At this point, she’s still within the race. Granted, her recent comments about the Civil War and other idiotic sound bites make it rather clear that she isn’t fit to be President- by election or by being the Vice President. While some believe she could help him win over women and independents, her track record is simply too unstable.

Other people not currently in the race include South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Tim Scott (R-SC), & J.D. Vance (R-OH); House Republican conference chairwoman Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) and Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL). Plus, many other lesser-known politicians.

Heading into the Iowa and New Hampshire caucuses, Trump has a mammoth lead over his opposition. Within the next few weeks, the debate about who will get the nomination and who will be joining Trump on that ticket will be ironed out. Hell, at this point, we may know who the conservative candidates are before the Democrats even decide if Biden will be going for re-election or not. While both could easily be drug out into February and March, at this point, it seems unlikely.

This situation once again puts the office of President of the United States into uncharted territory.

Solidifying the Republican ticket before the incumbent Democrats could be a clear sign to independent voters that conservatives are primed to win the election. As well as showing that they have better control over their party and stand to capture this election by a landslide since they are unified.

Being done with the decision so early could open the door to an outlier taking the second role on the ticket as Vice President. Trump has been known to throw a few surprises at the American people. It could be one of the most monumental moments in modern American history if he were to choose a Joe Everyman type. Someone the working class could identify with because they are one of them. From bad credit to owing child support and driving a beater truck to a job they hate.

Just imagine such a thing. The only thing better would be hearing Hillary admit she had Epstein killed to save her Billy.
