Ben Carson: Trump Considering Democrat as VP Choice

Trump two Faced

This sounds like some kooky conspiracy theory to defame Donald Trump, but since Ben Carson is officially heading the search for the person to be Donald Trump’s, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, vice-presidential running mate, it’s straight news.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal on Thursday, Ben Carson said that he was not interested in being Trump’s VP running mate but that Trump was actually considering a…Democrat.

The Journal reports:

Ben Carson, the former rival now helping presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump choose a running mate, said Thursday he doesn’t want the position and that Democrats may be among those considered.

“I’m not interested in doing that for a number of reasons,” Mr. Carson said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “I don’t want to be a distraction. I’m sure you remember how crazy the media was about me, I don’t want to be a distraction, it’s too important a time in our life.”

As for the wide net being cast for candidates, he added: “We would consider people who are Americans and who put America first.”

Good luck finding a Democrat who puts America first, that won’t be easy. Some have speculated that former Democrat presidential candidate, Jim Webb, who couldn’t get out of low-single digits in polling, and who dropped out of the race, and the Democrat Party completely, might be a possibility.

Some Trump supporters may be dismayed at Trump naming a Democrat as a running mate, however, realizing his “New York values” as well as his being a lifelong New York liberal his entire 69 years, this should come as no surprise.

In the two days since Ted Cruz surprisingly dropped out of the race following the Indiana primary, Trump, who masquerades as a conservative, has pulled a rapid bait and switch of epic proportions.

Not only did Donald Trump flip-flop on one of his campaign’s main pillars — that he is self-funded (he never really was self-funded, he “loaned” his campaign money to be repaid in the future by big donors), Trump announced that his fundraising operation would be headed by a man with deep ties to Goldman Sachs and George Soros, the ultimate hypocrisy — not exactly anti-establishment.

Also, #DonTheCon came out in support of raising the minimum wage, which he previously opposed, and came out against his…own tax plan, the one listed on his campaign site, noting that he wasn’t a big fan of it, in an interview with CNBC.
