Did you hear that rumor about the GOP nominee Trump considering a Democrat as his veep pick?
Something about “birds of a feather” comes to mind.
Retired General Michael Flynn is reportedly being vetted by Trump’s team as a possible running mate. He’s a former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, and was interviewed today on ABC’s This Week. Topics that he fumbled and fouled up included abortion, gay marriage, and immigration.
“Abortion, I think it’s a thing for women,” he said, taking a pro-choice stance that would hurt him among many Republicans. “I think women have to be able to choose what they — you know, that — the — sort of the right of choice. But I think that that’s a — that’s a difficult legal decision that — and I think that women are so important in that — in that decision-making process.”
“They are the ones that have to make the decision because they’re the one that’s — ones that are going to decide to bring up that child or not,” he added.
Flynn, who noted that he grew up in a “very strong Democratic family,” attempted to dodge answering whether he agrees with same-sex marriage. “What people do in their private lives, I’m not — these are not big issues that our country’s dealing with that are — that will cause our country to collapse,” he said.
How very Democrat of you, Sir.
At this juncture, nobody can be sure who Trump will call in to run as his second-in-command. He is as unpredictable as he is unprepared to do the job of the presidency.
With that being said, if he chooses a Democrat to be his vice president, can we assume it is because they are ideologically similar, and in which case, both Democrats?
I’m going to say “yes.”
