December 8 – Apparently Melania Trump is heavily lobbying her husband to choose Tucker Carlson as his running mate for vice president in the 2024 presidential election.
This isn’t the first time Carlson’s name has been brought up for a run for office.
Even in 2020, there was speculation he could run for president or be the VP.
The reporting is that Melania is urging her husband to pick Carlson – it’s not a mistake or a rumor.
Attorney Clint Barkdoll said, “I can remember when I worked in Washington, when these stories would come out in journalism circles, somebody in Trump’s camp and/or Tucker Carlson’s camp has likely leaked this. They’re floating a trial balloon here. They want to see what kind of a response the story gets, among other politicians, the public, the media, so that’ll be an interesting one to watch. Notwithstanding anybody’s personal opinion of Tucker, politics is the game of addition. I don’t know that Tucker Carlson brings more voters into Trump’s world. Tucker would be very popular, but if you’re in Tucker’s camp, you’re already in Trump’s camp. When you think about the politics of addiction, I don’t know that Tucker brings new people in. If anything, some of those swing voters and people in the middle might go the other way. That’s just my thought.”
Michele Jansen of NewsTalk 103.7FM pointed out, “Is there anyone Trump could bring in though that would bring addition? I think that maybe they’re just thinking double down on ‘let’s make America better’, but I can also see these two being just branded by the left as Hitler One and Hitler Two.”
Pat Ryan of NewsTalk 103.7FM noted, “Where I want Tucker, I want Tucker in those press conferences. Take Karine Jean-Pierre and that incompetent bobblehead, shove her in the corner. Imagine Tucker schooling all of those idiots in the room.”
Barkdoll said, “There are two people off the top of my head that would expand Trump’s tent when we’re talking about the political science game of addition. Two that come to my mind would be Tim Scott, South Carolina Senator and Nikki Haley. Both of them, by the way, are on the shortlist. If you notice all this stuff in the debates that we’ve been talking about, take note, Trump never criticizes Tim Scott and he’s very light when it comes to Nikki Haley. Is that a signal that he wants to keep the door open to pick one of them? Who knows? But I find that interesting, but I do think one of them could expand the tent for him.”
Jansen said, “Nikki Haley, first of all, she’d never do it, but it’s amazing if she would agree to be the Vice President. Hilarious though how quick the media would be to make her into Hitler-ette if she would become Donald Trump’s vice presidential candidate.”
Barkdoll said, “If the three of us were advising Trump, wouldn’t we think, if we’re just sitting around having a drink, wouldn’t Haley and Scott be at the top of our list? Politics aside, just looking at who could draw voters into this block, I would think either of them would really expand his base.”
Ryan suggested, “Or attorney Clint Barkdoll.”
Barkdoll responded to that with a jovial, yet quite adamant, “No.”
