    Apparently you forgot how old and degrading Trump is

    Can't find the video but I remember that inarch 2023 Alex Jones asked Robert Barnes who Trump's VP would be. Barnes said it would be DeSantis and that he had agreed not to run against his orangeness. Never Trumpers convinced DeSantis to run. That rules out DeSabtis. Haley and Tim Scott can't be trusted. Ramaseamy doesn't expand Trump's base.. Didn't Noem allow M to F transgenders to compete with biological females in sports (I forget). About 3 people on Trump's list aren't very well known
    I think that leaves ~2 people
    Trump has said he already made his pick. I am worried a tad by the age of my pick. An RFK Jr-Gabbsrd ticket might hurt Trump enought to swing the election to Biden. If I were Trump I might pick RFK Jr for VP or even Tulsi Gabbard if it polled well. To get Bobby Jr I'd tell him I'd resign after 2 years to go play golf. Bobby Jr could then conceivably be president for 10 years. Crazy I know

    Why would Republican voters trust Tulsi Gabbard of all people? She's been liberal on domestic issues or at least pretended to be. I know she is appealing to some based upon her purported foreign policy positions, and that likely includes her views on Syria and Russia. But what else? To be clear, I don't know what she actually believes, but the fact that's a mystery seems like a gamble. At least Noem and Haley, for better or worse, have run states and have track records.

    RFK, Jr. would be a non-starter for Trump. Although he is an extreme anti-vaxxer and is somewhat isolationist on foreign policy he has a history of liberal activism on the environment. Although since announcing his run for White House he has backed away from his previous environmental activism Trump's big dollar supporters in the fossil fuel and chemical industries still wouldn't want to risk the possibility of RFK, Jr. becoming president.

    I don't know if it's worth trying to apply traditional logic to his pick. It will be whoever is the biggest sycophant that will pledge unwavering and undying loyalty. No one will be able to convince Trump that he needs X or Y person to help him win. He's utterly convinced that it's his election to win and to suggest that he needs a specific person will be taken as an insult.

    Democrats and RINOs are the absolute worst on the environment. given their record on illegal immigration for decades. Imagine how much extra oil and gas we pump because we have an extra 80M or so people here and so on.

    I'd have to see how Tulsi polled as a Trump or RFK JR running mate but she has a certain je ne sais quoi , no?

    I'll gladly admit that she does possess a certain uncommon quality for a politician.

    Trump-RFK ticket would landslide Biden’s ass so hard they’d have to rename Trump “the Undertaker.”

    That's who I think he will pick. She helps with suburban housewives.

    Not going to happen for two reasons. As I previously mentioned there is Kennedy's past history as an environmental activist and that's would not sit well among Republican mega donors and secondly, the guy simply does not come over well on television. Once he starts getting more screen time he's going to fade rapidly even as a third-party presidential candidate.

    You're probably correct although Padma Lakshmi and Tulsi Gabbard could almost be twins. Gabbard is in the top picture, Lakshmi is in the bottom one.

    Kari Lake is telegenic to the extent the cameras' filters are soft.
