NY Post Says Trump Wanted RFK Jr. as His VP

Maybe Trump is reading the Daily Stormer.

This was my stated dream team.

Even though Kennedy’s positions on Israel are arguably even worse than Trump’s…

Well, I guess I just thought it would be funny.


Representatives of Donald Trump unsuccessfully tapped Robert F Kennedy Jr to be his vice-presidential candidate ahead of a likely run at the White House in this year’s US presidential election, a report by the New York Post has claimed.

Citing comments from an unnamed source close to the former president, the outlet reported that Trump’s team had made “preliminary overtures” to Kennedy – the former Democrat candidate now campaigning as an independent ahead of the November vote – to be his running mate.

“Trump operatives expressed an interest in Kennedy early on, but it was all premature,” the NY Post said, quoting the anonymous source with knowledge of the situation. They added that contact had been made “right out of the box when Bobby announced” his own run for the White House in April 2023.

However, the Post report notes that Kennedy rejected the supposed overtures and stated that he would not be interested in joining Trump’s bid to return to the Oval Office. Similarly, a representative for Trump dismissed the story as “fake news” and said that they would ‘never’ seek to join forces with the “radical” RFK Jr.

If this was considered at all, it seems like it would still be on the table.

There’s no reason Kennedy wouldn’t take the deal later on, even if he wanted to do his own thing first.

But it’s also possible or even probable that the Post made up this story whole cloth to get attention. After all, it is a tabloid.

Really, the Post is just one step removed from “Elvis put Batboy in Contact with UFO Fleet.”

It’s arguable that a lot of National Enquirer material was more grounded in reality than most of what is on the Post.
