Now that Donald Trump has all but wrapped up the Republican nomination by declaring his candidacy, would you care to help him select a running mate?

Asked by ibstubro (18765points) June 20th, 2015

I shameless stole this question from today’s NPR broadcast, but they only allowed the 3 guest panelists to answer.

I open the question to Fluther’s wit and wisdom.

The obvious answer is to give Sarah Palin another shot.

Maybe one of our members.

Sarah Palin is too modest. She hates the attention and the spotlight.

Clearly Bristol Palin is the most qualified candidate.

I’ll do it.

Trump should decide it via a reality TV show, where he gets to kick candidates off with a catch phrase.

Aaron Clarey.

William Shatner. Edit he’s Canadian. I would pick Dr. Phil. Or Larry King. The governer New Jersey Chris Christy. Mitt Romney is the old standby just in case.

Would his hair be running separately?

It would be very interesting to see who he would pick. I think it would be another businessman. Or, a Miss America. I’m not sure.

@talljasperman Awwww, I love William Shatner. He’s reason right there to allow people not born in the US to be President.

@reijinni As much as Dr. Oz turns me off he is a well respected heart surgeon when he’s not in TV.

Surely there’s a member of the Kardashian Klan available to play that’s Republican? Why not draw on all that free media-savvy advice.
Imagine the drama when the VP candidate is compelled to visit the reality TV show. Show? What am I thinking? K.B. Jenner could ask if there are any male pattern baldness secrets/treatments that would be mainstreamed by a successful President Trump.

Promote, promote, promote.

I would not know anyone stupid enough to want the opportunity.

stanleybmanly's avatar

I nominate Eric Cartman as most Trump-like in disposition.

linguaphile's avatar

Caitlyn Jenner? She sure knows how to make the media jump and shout.

talljasperman's avatar

Seeing that imaginary Vp. Is open then I would pick Lex Luthor

gorillapaws's avatar

Alf? He’s from Melmac, so I guess that disqualifies him, and Trump is a stickler for birth certificates. The hair would be a good match though.

cheebdragon's avatar

Alf was really into eating cats….PETA would never approve.

SQUEEKY2's avatar

I think Sara Palin would be a great fit with the Don.

Here2_4's avatar

Rosie ODonnell.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

^ OH, let’s hope never).

Pachy's avatar

He’s already got a running mate. His hair.

ragingloli's avatar

I am still waiting for that great evidence he claimed to have found, that proves that Obama is a space lizard from space.

Pachy's avatar

LOL! Politicians today don’t need facts or evidence to believe/say stuff is true or false.

SQUEEKY2's avatar

@Pachy That is very true, but the problem is they expect us to believe it as well, and that I find offensive.

sahID's avatar

Why not Tiger Woods? That way, The Donald could avoid mussing up his hair on the golf course by having his Veep play golf for him.

filmfann's avatar

Trump has publicly announced that he wants Oprah to be his Veep. She has defiantly told him NO.
Which leaves Sarah Plain and tall.

Here2_4's avatar

I stand with believing he should choose Rosie. They have a looooong standing relationship which should really keep him on his toes. Plus, there would be prizes.

talljasperman's avatar

@filmfann Every senator look under your chairs.

cheebdragon's avatar

The only person dumb enough to yes to being his vp would have to be Ann coulter.

linguaphile's avatar

@cheebdragon Ann Coulter or Michelle Bachman…

upyurts's avatar

Dennis Rodman!

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

So, it is 3 weeks later, ol’ Trump still has it wrapped up, or did someone trump him?

talljasperman's avatar

Well Butthead needs a Beavis. I would pick Jerry Springer.

talljasperman's avatar

Seriously I would pick Jesse Ventura.

Cersei Lannister
