President Donald Trump is considering Tucker Carlson as his Vice Presidential pick for 2020, according to a new report.
From Spectator USA, "Vice President Tucker Carlson?":
Will President Trump switch up his ticket in 2020? The Wall Street Journal editorial page, bastion of the establishment right, certainly hopes so. A little over a week ago, it called for former ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley to replace the dutiful Mike Pence as vice president. But there’s well-placed chatter in Washington that suggests the president will take a different route. Trump does indeed feel he needs VP change, but it is not Nikki Haley he is considering. It is Fox News host Tucker Carlson.Good things happen when Trump takes Tucker Carlson's advice.
Here’s why it would make sense for the president to just go all the way— and name Carlson his running mate.Tucker understands Trumpism better than Trump.
It’s been speculated before that Carlson might enter a 2024 race, but Trump might want to bring him into his fold sooner than that. Trump often complains of ideological clashes with his own officials. That’s partly why he already relies on a shadow cabinet, anchored by Carlson, as proved by last week’s called-off strikes on Iran.It would definitely be a good move to energize Trump's base, which is mostly quite frustrated with Trump's constant caving and total failure to secure the border.
That said, I would prefer President Tucker Carlson and Vice President Donald Trump. Trump fought like hell during the campaign but as president he has let Jared Kushner, Ivanka, Mike Pompeo and John Bolton have way too much influence and he let the Republican establishment set his agenda.
He ran as a transformation figure but then submitted to the status quo on far too many issues. As Steve Bannon said, "embrac[ing] the establishment" was "the original sin of the administration."
During Trump's recent interview with Tucker, Tucker was on point talking about war with Iran and Big Tech censorship and Trump's responses were very weak.
On ending our wars in the Middle East, he said he reversed his decision to pull out of Afghanistan after a general who looked like he was "out of central casting" repeated the cliche that he'd "rather attack them over there than have them hit us over here" -- even though we've flooded the country with "them" and brought them "here" over the past decade in the name of prog-globalism.
Here's the exact quote:
TRUMP: You have to watch because they do -- you know, okay, I'll give you a tough one. If you were in my position and a great looking central casting and we have great generals, a great central casting general walks up to your office, I say, "We're getting out." "Yes, sir. We'll get out. Yes, sir."His answer to Big Tech censorship was even worse. He doesn't seem to understand that Big Tech reengineered the entire internet after he won and is waging total war on everyone who helped him win (he doesn't use the internet other than Twitter). He also wouldn't say whether he's going to do anything about it (in the past after Paul Joseph Watson and a bunch of other supporters were banned he only said he would "monitor" the situation):
CARLSON: Google, by some measures, the most powerful company in the world -- all information flows through it -- they're against you. They don't want you reelected. Can you get reelected if Google is against you?Regardless of whether he picks Tucker to be his VP, he needs to keep listening to his advice as he's the only mainstream figure with his finger on the pulse of America.
