Sorry, Neocons: Trump Isn’t Replacing Mike Pence With Nikki Haley

It’s wishful thinking on the part of George Bush Republicans.

President Trump is not going to replace Vice President Mike Pence with Nikki Haley. Period.

Commentator Meghan McCain became the latest neoconservative-aligned Republican to claim that such a Vice Presidential bait-and-switch is in the works. McCain alleges that Trump is going to replace Pence with Haley, the former Governor of South Carolina, in the event that Joe Biden chooses a female running mate to utilize identity politics in a reciprocal manner.

You want to identity politics me? I’ll identity politics you.’ And I just … think they’re gangster.”

CNN pundit Paul Begala also claimed Trump is going to replace Mike Pence with Haley during the Democratic convention. The talking head went so far as to claim that the replacement was a “certainty.”

There’s one problem with the former Republican establishment’s theory: there’s no reason to believe it has any basis in truth. It’s wishful thinking on the part of neoconservatives who want influence within the Trump administration, having largely opposed Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign from start to finish.

President Donald Trump has said as such himself. He said that Pence is “100%” going to be his running mate in the 2020 election in August. He rejected the claim in even more forceful terms earlier this month, describing Vice President Pence as his closest friend in Washington.

I get along great with our vice president. I keep hearing I’m replacing him. He’s doing a phenomenal job. He’s a great guy and a loyal guy and he works so hard. Every day I read, ‘He’s gonna put this one, he’s gonna put that one. If I did, that would be a great act of disloyalty because he’s been great. I speak to him a lot.

Trump’s remarks on the matter shut down the prospect of a Vice Presidential replacement in about as certain terms as possible.

Neoconservatives would love nothing more than for Donald Trump to saddle himself with a Vice President who reliably supports endless Middle East wars, globalist free trade with China, and massively increasing immigration levels to the United States by an order of millions.

Such a desire is rooted in their own wish to return the Republican Party to its pre-Trump status quo of unmitigated failure to actually “conserve” anything of value for the American people, despite having the audacity to label themselves “conservatives.”

Obama Reportedly Said Pete Buttigieg Too ‘Gay’ and ‘Short’ to be President

Tell it like it is, Barack!

Published

Former president Barack Hussein Obama reportedly said that former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was too “gay” and too “short” to be a serious presidential contender during the midst of the 2020 presidential race.

Buttigieg, who ran for president in 2020 and surprisingly won the Iowa caucus, is now the Transportation Secretary under President-imposed Joe Biden. He is considered a rising star in the Democrat Party due to his homosexual lifestyle, which includes being gay married to a husband, but Obama is apparently a doubter.

Obama reportedly made his remarks while addressing a group of black Democrat donors in Oct. 2019 as he was attempting to exert his influence over the process. The revelation comes from a new book authored by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen titled, Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.

At the time, Obama was apparently supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president. The excerpt from the book, which includes various pot shots made by Obama toward Buttigieg, reads as follows:

When he was asked to return to the original question on his advice, Obama said he liked Buttigieg, a rising talent who’d worked on his own campaign. But despite his affinity for the South Bend mayor, he rattled off a list of reasons why Buttigieg couldn’t win. 

“He’s thirty- eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself — ” big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter. 

Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.

It goes without saying that any conservative who made similar remarks would be pilloried by the fake news media. Obama will get a pass, although the comments may make the former president’s relationship with the former mayor strained as Buttigieg climbs up the political ladder undeservedly due solely to identity politics.
