A truly heartbreaking tale...clueless Trump ass-kissing thug Hannity lobbied for Newt as VP, but...



But Trump had told an adviser that Gingrich’s vetting packet contained some terrifying details, and the former reality TV star said the background check “makes mine look tame” in comparison.

Trump juggled Pence, Gingrich and former New Jersey governor Chris Christie until the last minute, although Politico Magazine reported that Christie was his third choice.

The Republican candidate ultimately chose Pence because he was impressed by his nonchalance during a final meeting that served as a job interview, but not until he met a final time with Gingrich.

Fox News host Sean Hannity had flown Gingrich, his preferred candidate, to Indianapolis at the last minute to meet with Trump after sensing the GOP candidate was leaning in another direction.

1. I don't like Gingrich but....

I doubt his "background" could be worse than Epstein buddy predator Trump.

2. LOL, a Trump/Gingrich ticket wouldn't have lasted very long.

Gingrich would have immediately started acting like he was the top of the ticket, and Donald Trump would not be having any of that.

4. And THAT's the real reason the Grinch wasn't chosen

Chump would never pick another glory-hog to share his limelight. There can be only one, and that's Chump. As little attention as Mike Pence gets, Chump still resents it when he's not getting ALL the attention.

3. And wasn't Pence Manafort's candidate?

Wasn't there something about Manafort delaying the flight so that Trump had to spend more time with pence?
