No one is even pretending the GOP presidential primary is a real race anymore.
Attention shifted to the general election.
And Megyn Kelly had some bad news about Donald Trump’s VP pick.
The main parlor game right now in D.C. and the media is trying to guess who Donald Trump will select as his running mate.
Trump told a Fox News town hall audience that he already had his vice president picked out.
But who is that candidate?
Many in the establishment and inside the beltway conservatives want to see Nikki Haley on the ticket.
Trump supporters are furious at this idea.
Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene warned of a “revolt” by the MAGA base if Trump were to select Haley.
Pro-Trump Ohio Senator J.D. Vance ripped the idea of a Trump-Haley ticket saying that as an actual America First conservative, he is closer to Trump Jr. on policy.
“I’m more aligned with Don Jr. It would be a disaster for the country,” Vance stated.
Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz warned that a Vice President Haley would undermine Trump from the word “go” as she hails from the Mitt Romney-Liz Cheney wing of the GOP that wants to exile Trump and his MAGA agenda from the GOP.
“Nikki Haley as VP would be an establishment neocon fantasy and a MAGA nightmare,” Gaetz told POLITICO. “On Day One she would convert the Naval Observatory into an anti-Trump, resistance headquarters, undermining him at every step.”
Haley is a throwback to the early 2000s GOP as she won’t call illegal aliens criminals, opposed Donald Trump’s border wall and travel ban while also demanding a blank check to fund Joe Biden’s war in Ukraine.
Trump made it known that loyalty is the number-one trait he is looking for in a running mate.
So would Trump really pick Haley?
Megyn Kelly believes it’s a possibility.
“Is it out of the realm of possibility that he chooses Haley? Absolutely not. It’s not. I realize that MAGA doesn’t want it. They’ve convinced themselves that Nikki Haley is against all the things that they stand for,” Kelly began.
Kelly told her podcast audience that Trump would select Kelly if he thought Haley would help him win as winning this election is the difference between going to jail or not.
“He personally really must win if he doesn’t want to go to jail,” Kelly continued. “If that’s your situation, I think you might be thinking, ‘MAGA is gonna get over Nikki Haley if I tell them to get over Nikki Haley.’”
“I know for a fact that’s how Trump thinks,” Kelly concluded.
Picking Haley as the vice president would set up Trump for immediate impeachment and conviction.
Senate RINOs like Mitch McConnell would love to be rid of Trump.
Haley as the VP would mean Senate GOPers could vote to convict Trump in an impeachment trial to install Haley as president.
And Nikki Haley as president would mean a surrender in the culture war as she doesn’t believe in fighting woke corporations or banning transgender surgeries for minors.
A President Haley would also keep America’s border open so she can pursue the war in Ukraine.
But Megyn Kelly thinks none of these outcomes matter.
Kelly contends Trump could gamble on picking Haley believing his loyal base will fall in line after grousing about the pick.
