Donald Trump wants Oprah Winfrey to be his running mate, but instead of Oprah, resident Republican crazy person Sarah Palin stepped up to champion his candidacy.
Trump told ABC News that he thought Oprah Winfrey would be his ideal running mate, “I think Oprah would be great. I’d love to have Oprah. I think we’d win easily, actually.”
Sorry, Trump, but Oprah was never going to happen.
Instead, Sarah Palin resurfaced and claimed the mantle of number one Trump fan.
From deep within her Facebook bunker, Palin wrote:
Mr. Trump should know he’s doing something right when the malcontents go ballistic in the press! There is no denying Donald J. Trump’s accomplishments and drive to create opportunity for every willing American to succeed. His own success is testament to the job-creating achievements made possible when one applies the courageous and tenacious pro-private sector precepts we need to fire up the economy. Trump joins a competitive field of GOP candidates that will duke it out in the arena of ideas and track records, a field representing diverse achievements. This, in contrast with the pro-big government party’s practice of merely anointing a chosen one, thus robbing voters of healthy debate.
Key to conservative’s victory is to do our own vetting of each candidate, focus on their ability to unleash America’s entrepreneurial spirit and dramatically shrink government in order to prioritize our nation’s security. That means we ignore the media’s participation in the liberals’ Pantsuit Politics of Personal Destruction. THEN, on an even playing field, in 2016 we charge forward after the radical left hears America shout, “You’re fired!”
Trump’s announcement made no sense, which is why Palin is apparently such a big fan. Sarah Palin and Donald Trump work the same side of the street. Both are reality television cartoon characters who pretend to be involved in Republican politics to get some free publicity and make a quick buck. Both Trump and Palin are Republican con artists.
The sick thing about Trump’s press conference is that there is an audience in the Republican Party for a racist candidate who screams look at me constantly while making absolutely no sense at all. Donald Trump appeals to the same people who support Palin.
Donald Trump may wish for the credibility of Oprah Winfrey, but his reality is Sarah Palin.
