Trump Asked About Naming a Socialist Running Mate; His Answer is Shocking, Disturbing

On Friday, Donald Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, was asked whether he would consider wild-eyed socialist Bernie Sanders, 74, who is running as a Democrat presidential candidate and is in second place behind corrupt liar Hillary Clinton, as his VP running mate in the general election.

Trump, who masquerades as a conservative after living the life of a NY liberal for the first 68-years of his life, gave a stunning answer.

As The Hill reported:

Donald Trump on Friday declined to answer whether he would consider Independent Bernie Sanders as a running mate, noting he thinks many of Sanders’s supporters will eventually back him in November.

“Oh wow, that’s a great question,” the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when asked whether he would consider Sanders, who is running for the Democratic nomination. 

Trump said he has some things in common with the Vermont senator before noting, “I do have much bigger crowds than him, but that’s OK.” 

“The difference between Bernie and myself is I know how to make those trade deals fantastic and he doesn’t. He has no clue,” Trump added.

“But as your number two, he could watch and learn from you ,” panelist Nicolle Wallace said. 

“He’s got too many things in the bag,” Trump replied.

A “great question?” The answer should have been, “Are you out of your damn mind? Why would I name a freedom-hating socialist as my running mate?” Why no outright rejection? Is Trump just playing politics? I thought he wasn’t a politician?

And the only difference between the two is that Trump would negotiate better trade deals? Huh? Others have noticed that there are way too many similarities between the two so-called “insurgent” candidates.

It’s really a shame that Ronald Reagan’s “bold colors, no pale pastels,” is getting blurred and muddied to the point where the Republican candidate can’t even articulate the difference between himself and a SOCIALIST!

Wow, just wow.
