Let’s Help trump Pick a VP

If there is one thing we’ve learned about donald trump over the course of his campaign it is that he will say anything to anyone at anytime, no matter how volatile, outrageous, spiteful, hurtful, malicious, petty and vengeful, so long as it complies with one key element, the sine quo non that must be present before he opens his mouth: It has to be a lie.

So, who among the gop landscape also says stuff like that, spiteful, outrageous statements, designed to incite and provoke their followers, and above all, that are out and out lies?

Unfortunately, the list is endless.

But, for the consideration of the trump, here are a few suggestions among the very wide and diverse array of members of the gop who also care not an iota either for consequences or for truth:

gop Congressman Steve King of Iowa, perhaps most well know for his comments about the children of illegal immigrants: “for every child of
illegal immigrants ‘who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there who weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert’.”

Nevada state assemblywomen Michele Fiore, currently running for Congress in the state’s 3d Congressional District, is a staunch supporter of domestic terrorists including Cliven and Ammon Bundy, and has frequently stated that she would point her own gun back at, and presumably shoot at, anyone, including government agents and police, who pointed their weapons at her, and who, during the armed siege of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge said that the people involved including Ammon Bundy, were “merely camping”.

Congressman Joe Barton of Texas, formerly the Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, who is of course famous for one thing and one thing only: On June 17, 2010, at the beginning of House Energy and Commerce committee hearings on the infamous, world-chasing massive BP oil spill in the gulf of Mexico, and just after BP had agreed in principal to a payment of $20 Billion for certain damage elements they had caused, Barton prefaced his questioning of BP CEO Tony Hayward by APOLOGIZING for what he called a “shakedown”, saying that “I do not want to live in a country where any time a citizen or a corporation does something that is legitimately wrong, is subject to

some sort of political pressure that is, again, in my words - amounts to a shakedown, so I apologize."

While the Oxford New World Dictionary has a photograph of sarah palin next to the word “clueless”, quoting her is a worthless and never-ending endeavor, and I choose not to engage. However, she is far from the only clueless gop politician, and among them, and fondly
remembered for a couple of quotes, is 2012 presidential candidates Herman Cain, who famously stated during that 2012 campaign that he believed that China was trying to develop a nuclear bomb, oblivious to the fact that they had had one for the preceding 48 years, and yet again for stating how he would gladly sign a constitutional amendment banning abortion, having no clue on the actual process of amending the constitution, which totally omits ANY role on the part of the president.

How can trump fail to consider one of the other contenders for this year’s nomination and since his leaving the competition, one of his most fervent supporters, Ben Carson, who, as I wrote about back in October (“Carson the Leader in gop Lie-Fest”), had the gaul to unequivocally state at one of the gop debates that he had NO involvement with the discredited supplement purveyor, Mannatech, despite the fact that there were still at that time various videos on the internet of Carson shilling for the phony purveyor of fake cures for various diseases, a company that ultimately paid millions of dollars in fines and damages due to their phony claims.

If we suggest Carson’s name, especially relating to massive lies stated during the debates, and concerning videos, how can we omit former candidate and then ted cruz’ own vp choice, carly fiorina, who described to millions of tv viewers across the county the details of a horrible-sounding anti-choice video she swore to the viewers that she had watched, but that never actually existed?

Lets also reach back to a member of r reagan’s cabinet who in recent years has primarily assumed the position of author and pundit, but whom I’m sure could easily resurrect his politician facade of past years, the one and only William Bennett, who famously wrote in his epic tome “The Book of Virtues”, the following: “Too much of anything, even a good thing, may prove to be our undoing…[We] need …to set definite boundaries on our appetites.” All well and nice, until it came out a few years later that Bennett had lost over $8 Million dollars to his own boundry-less gambling habit. Oh, perhaps I should also

refresh the memories of anyone who thinks for a minute that Bennett is not a phony, racist, piece of shit, that he said on Sep 28, 2005 on his “Morning in America” radio show that the crime rate would be greatly reduced if all black babies were aborted. At 72, he’s only a couple of years older than the trump, and he might be the perfect fit for a trump administration.

Not that Jeb Bush would ever seriously be considered a potential VP, he probably provided the biggest single lie of the 2015-1016 campaign, and for that, he deserves at least a mention, if not actual consideration. How can we forget this: “My brother kept us safe”?

A great place to end this list? Well, yea, but there is one better person and quote to end with, and that is one-time Senate candidate from the state of Delaware, Christine O’Donnell, whose fame will long endure, due to a four-word statement she made directly into the tv camera in October of 2010: “I’m not a witch.”

What more could the trump want in a vice president?

About theHoundDawg

For many years as a lawyer, I saw much of the good and bad of society, and did what I could to right many wrongs. The lack of understanding of what is good and bad, right and wrong, just and unjust, as evidenced by such events as the election of King W as president, (who as such far surpassed the evil of richard nixon but not quite that of ronald reagan) lead me in a new direction, to spend my time trying to understand what is happening to our society, to try as best I can to spread my insights to others, and along the way to maybe even eke out a living through the internet.
