Ben Carson confirms that Sarah Palin actually IS on Donald Trump's list of potential VP's.

Courtesy of The Hill: 

Ben Carson says in a new interview that former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin is being considered as presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump’s running mate, along with a host of the real estate mogul’s former challengers. 

Carson told The Washington Post that Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.), Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas), Sarah Palin and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie “are all people on our list.”

Oh please, oh please, oh please, pick Sarah Palin. 

I would have SO much fun with that.

Plus of course it would ensure that Trump had no chance of winning the presidency.

      Personally, I think this is an indication of Trump's lack of seriousness. He's thumbing his nose at Establishment Republicans for their terrible alliances with fundies, tea party nuts and whatnot. The Base will eat it up but he'll be soundly defeated in the General. Palin seals it.

      I don't need a link 11:46, I have a brain. Palin will not be the VP choice. It is as simple as that and needs no further explanation. It is fricking hilarious that you are dumb enough to buy this crap.

      So, for the record, Sarah Palin is not going to be a VP choice. lol. As any even semi-intelligent person knows.

      It's totally believable that Trump "is considering Palin" for VP.

      It's all semantics, folks.

      There's a HUUUUUUUge difference between "seriously considering" or "in the top 3" considering or just "considering."

      All he has to do is "leak" that he is "considering" Palin and her bots will side with him.

      And he doesn't even have to lie.

      Will she actually show up on his Top 3 List? Possibly, just for the "shock" factor that will get him a lot of attention.

      The man is smart, kiniving, and he learned a lot from Sara Palin and how she operated during her hey day.

      Tease. Tease. Tease. That's how you keep guys interested (right, Bristol?) And that's how you keep Palin followers interested.

      Palin is not going to be VP choice for Trump. And you know it. First of all, Palin doesn't want to work. Second of all, even she knows she is in even less of a position to take such a role as she was 8 years ago. 3rd, Trump loves to play games, but he isn't going to put a loser on the ticket.

      He isn't considering her; he's just trying to keep her crazy fan base in the fold. Cruz is 100 percent no -- he's going to be the next Santorum, always running, always hated by everyone but a few. Portman wouldn't be associated with Trump.

      652am, Carson announced to the press that drumpf promised him a cabinet position if he joined his team. Which is, of course, against the law. Which he'd know if he had any clue how the process works.

    5. Anonymous7:27 AM

      6:52, Carson thinks Trump is his hero. This paragraph explains how he felt that night at the debate when he didn't hear his cue to go out, then Trump missed his. They were two bozos who had no clue, but Carson explains it this way:

      To viewers at home, they looked like a pair of middle school drama students who had both missed their cue. But Carson saw Trump’s pause as a deliberate gesture to ease his awkwardness.

      “That showed the kind of person that he is, to stand by me even though it did nothing for him personally,” Carson said.
      “They stood together that day like brothers,” said Williams, one of Carson’s closest confidants. “That was a very important moment.”

    6. Anonymous7:57 AM

      7:02 is right. Carson says all kinds of things that he never should--he has no idea when he's making a big gaffe. This week he made a comment that had to do with Trump's lack of qualification or something (I'll try finding his exact words) and he said but Trump would be surrounded by people who did know things, and he added that it'd be for just four years (not eight) anyway.

    "I would have SO much fun with that."

    Most of us would, but consider the consequences: even if the ticket loses, it would give Sarah additional creds which she certainly does not deserve. It would enable her to continue her fund-raising grift and living the high-life for no effort other than her continuing shrill blather or ghost-written bullshit.

    Other than the fact that it will guarantee keeping Trump out of the White House, I hate to see it happen.

    Now, on the other side of that coin, it might well be that if she does end up on the ticket, she will finally be fully vetted and the truth will be revealed.

  11. Anonymous6:30 AM

    Let's face it Trump needs a woman on the ticket to counter Hillary and to counter his terrible numbers with women. I don't think he will ultimately choose the Wasilla Wendigo but it looks good to the wingnuts that he had at least vetted her. Nikki Haley may have a shot though. Suzanna Martinez from NM has higher aspirations and won't hitch her wagon to the Donald.

    Besides, I think Christie is going after AG. Normally the VP candidate does not manage the transition team and he has already been named for that job. And he is too much ego for the VP role in the shadows. And as AG he can get all the Bridgegate investigations and other inquiries into his corruption stopped/reversed.

    1. Anonymous10:15 AM

      Both Martinez and Haley have said absolutely not. I realize people being considered for VP often say no and then say yes, but usually the protest goes more like this: "I'm not thinking about VP right now, I'm just focused on being the best gosh-darn governor I can." Rarely do people say, "There is zero chance in hell of me running with this insane dude"...and then do it.

    The Vice Presidency No One Should Want

    Whether Trump or Clinton is elected, the new veep will be a weakling, eclipsed either by a massive ego or a super-powerful First Husband.

    ... Imagine yourself as Trump’s vice president. What are your chances of serving as a trusted, respected adviser on politics and policy? Look at the last President who had something like the mixture of massive self-regard and massive insecurity that defines Trump—Lyndon Baines Johnson. Having lived through the hell of being a scorned and shunned vice-president under John Kennedy—“I hated every minute of it,” he later said—he treated his own second, Hubert Humphrey, with equal contempt.

    “You are his choice in a political marriage, and he expects your absolute loyalty,” Humphrey later said, but even that was not enough. In 1965, when Humphrey offered Johnson carefully modulated advice about the political costs of escalating the war in Vietnam, he was banished from the inner circle for a full year. And in 1968, Johnson made clear his contempt for his would-be successor (“Hubert squats when he pees,” he said.)

    Trump’s contempt for rivals, critics and even allies makes LBJ’s bullying look like something out of Mr. Rogers. The video of him curtly ordering endorser Chris Christie to “get on the plane and go home” ought to be fair warning that a vice president under Trump should not expect anything better. Moreover, the idea of loyally supporting a Trump agenda poses a special challenge: That agenda is likely to be amended or abandoned on a moment’s notice. A prospective running mate, asked to declare himself or herself on Trump’s abortion, tax, health care or foreign policy positions, might be tempted to answer: “Which ones?” As for as being “the last voice” offering guidance, Trump has already told us what voice that will be.

    “I’m speaking to myself,” he told Mika Brzezinski of “Morning Joe” in March, “because I have a very good brain.” His vice president, Trump suggested this week, would be a messenger boy, serving as his “legislative liaison.”

      I like your analysis 8:11 AM. I totally agree with you that Trump's VP would never be allowed to have any thought of his own and would just be an errand-boy or girl.
      Trump has already said loud and clear that he is his own adviser because he has "a very good brain". And who could ever follow his own changing policies and views? This would be the worst job in the world, not that I would feel sorry for the twit who accepts it.
      I just could not believe that a grown man would say that he has a "good brain" and that he has "the best words". How childish is that? It reminded me of the time when my youngest son came back from school and proudly announced to his grandmother that he had passed first grade because he had a " big brain", something he had heard on Sesame Street. We thought it was cute since he was only 6 years old. At 69, hummm ... not so cute.

    Trump will need Ohio and Florida. I just don't see him going with anyone who isn't legit, plus he needs someone who knows how government work and he has said he will go with an establishment person. Kasich and Rubio are not interested but I can see Trump pursuing them. This week Bill O'Reilly told Gingrinch on Fox that he is sure Trump will pick Gingrich. That would be a mistake but would make a lot more sense than some other choices, like Christie, whose bridgegate scandal is back in the news. I don't see Gingrich as happening. It would only make matters worse. There'd be two cheating blowhards on the ticket. Trump will need someone who makes the ticket humane and appealing to more voters. No way is Palin on the list, or if her name is typed on it that's just for appeasement.

    ‘He humiliated women’: Chris Wallace smacks down Reince Priebus for blowing off Trump’s sexism

    ...During an interview on Sunday, Fox News host Chris Wallace asked the chairman if he was bothered by a New York Times report that found “repeated instances of Trump insulting women and making unwanted advances even in the workplace.”

    “Well, you know, a lot of things bother me,” Priebus shrugged. “And obviously, I’m the wrong person to be asking that particular question.”

    “Wait a minute,” Wallace interrupted. “Why are you the wrong person? You’re the chairman of the party. This is your nominee, and they’re saying he has mistreated women.”

    “People just don’t care,” Priebus replied. “I think people look at Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and say, ‘Who is going to bring an earthquake to Washington, D.C.?'”

    “I don’t think Donald Trump and his personal life is something that people are looking at and saying, ‘Wow, I’m surprised that he’s had girlfriends.’ That’s not what people look at.”

    Wallace stopped Priebus: ‘Whoa, forgive me, sir. It’s not whether or not he had girlfriends. The question is whether or not he mistreated women, whether he made unwanted advances, whether he humiliated women in the workplace.”

    WATCH: CNN Host Destroys Trump Campaign Manager For Denying Trump Acted As His Own Publicist

    ...On Sunday morning’s State of the Union, Tapper played the now infamous tape of Trump impersonating his own PR guy, and then asked campaign manager Paul Manafort if the campaign is “seriously claiming that wasn’t Mr. Trump?” Manafort stuck to his story but Tapper pressed on and put Manafort on the spot. Tapper said:

    “In 1990 under oath he testified he did use the name John Barron, and in 1991 he told People magazine he did use the name John Miller so this has already been admitted previously. I don’t understand why now.”

    Manafort then said, “I don’t know those facts to be true or not. I just know that he said it’s not him. I believe him.” He then went on in an attempt to change the subject, citing what he said was the lack of importance of the issue:

    “I don’t even know the relevance of this frankly. It’s 25 years old and they’re not dealing with the issues that Trump is trying to focus on today. Jobs, terrorism, immigration problems. These are the issues we should be talking about. Why the media is spending so much time going by 25 years, talking about People magazine on a tape that may or may not be Trump.”

    But Tapper wasn’t having it, and he explained the relevance of the story to Manafort. Here’s what he said:

    “This issue is here you have a man who in his 40’s allegedly is his own public relations agent, bragging about his exploits with women while married to Ivana Trump, the mother of his three children and speaks to a certain kind of character issue don’t you think?”

      “This issue is here you have a man who in his 40’s allegedly is his own public relations agent, bragging about his exploits with women while married to Ivana Trump, the mother of his three children and speaks to a certain kind of character issue don’t you think?”

      It's one thing to say it was 25 years ago, when, 25 years ago you were, say 25. And have grown up and have a track record to prove improvement.

      It's another thing entirely to be 40-ish and speaking all sexy about someone who isn't your wife.

      I think the "that was 25 years ago meme" is intended to speak to the person (guy) who would say, "I wouldn't want what I did 25 years ago come back to haunt me."

      Nobody would, if they were a total jerk. But, if that total jerk hasn't changed his way in 25 years, it doesn't matter if he was 10 years old or 100.

      It shows a personality disorder that the problem continues to today.

      It also shows a lot of enabling along the way if the person never felt the need to change because there were no consequences to them for the bad behavior. Or no one clued them in on the inappropriateness of the behavior.)

    Imagine Sarah Palin in the White House

    Sarah Palin may soon exchange her current occupation as professional rambler for another more structured job as the second hand to a shouting, shriveled piece of dried mango.

    According to political insider and barely-awake neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Sarah Palin is among the names that Republican presidential nominee-to-be Donald Trump may tap for his vice president. Carson told The Washington Post that Palin is among a list that includes John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Chris Christie.

    Imagine if Trump actually chose Palin? Imagine if we had a repeat of 2008? Imagine if we had to endure another six months of the former Alaska Gov. shouting about mavericks and Bill Nye and kicking ISIS’ ass?

    Better yet, just imagine Sarah Palin in the White House, serving as the Vice President of the United States of America. I’ll bet it’d look something like this. (See video)

    The GOP National Convention is 18-21 July. That's two months away -- a LOT can happen in two months, especially because this is the Palin Freak Show we are talking about.

    By that time, Jordan will be six months pregnant and clearly showing. Will she and Track be married by then? If so -- or even if not -- will Sarah trot out Jordan and Track as an example of her All-American, God-Fearing family?

    Will Track be out of jail? Or will he beat the shit out of Jordan or some other woman and be facing more charges?

    Will Sarah trot out all three and one-in-the-oven of her grandchildren -- none of them conceived in wedlock?

    What about Trigg?? Back in 2008, Sarah could cart him around on her hip like a sack of groceries. Now he's a fully mobile 8-yr-old who is not toilet trained, does not eat solid food, and whose favorite word is "Bullshit!!"

    Then there's the matter of Bristol and MOH. Will MOH campaign for Sarah? With MOH spending so much time with Sailor, maybe he and Bristol will decided to get married -- or maybe she'll just decide to get knocked up again.

    How will Sarah deal with the fact the Bristol is the unmarried single mother of two children, by two different fathers?

    Maybe we could start a campaign to help Sarah nail down the VP slot -- letters, email, twitter to Carson and Trump; contact the RNC; maybe a Sarah For VP Facebook page -- let's give her all the help we can!!!

    Business Insider-
    America's former top spy is worried about Donald Trump

    Michael Hayden didn't mince words when asked about Donald Trump's proposal to bar Muslim immigrants and tourists from entering the US.

    It's not legally possible, the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency told Business Insider in an interview. It's morally reprehensible.

    And, frankly, "it's dumb as dirt."

    "Why in God's name would you want to close the borders of our nation to the adherence to one of the world's great monotheisms?" Hayden said during an interview in Business Insider's Manhattan headquarters.

    ... "He has not shown me the capacity to treat international issues with the complexity and seriousness that they deserve," Hayden said. "And again, if I'm supposed to ignore those things — 'that was just done for the crowd' — frankly, that's an even worse problem. I'm going to take him at face value."

    .... "Of the candidates left, the only one who in any way seems to embrace the American liberal post-World War II foreign-policy consensus, have a fairly active American role in global things — the only one left standing is Hillary Clinton," Hayden said. "

    .... The difference between Secretary Clinton and Trump — I mean, Trump is talking about the world in a way that takes us back to the 1930s. I mean, he's talking almost isolationism, America first. He's talking about distributing A-bombs around the world. Those are crazy positions," Panetta told CNN's Chris Cuomo.

    He added:

    I'm not sure what he stands for. I'm not sure what his positions are. He takes one position one day, he takes another position the next day. He takes positions on, you know, immigration and building a wall, on getting rid of 11 million immigrants. He talks about distributing atomic weapons so that it's OK if Japan gets atomic weapons, if Korea gets atomic weapons. He says these things almost as if he's not even thinking. And then, you know, the next day he kind of changes his position to try to soften some of the things he says....
