The nation was surprised to learn Donald Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee for this year’s presidential election, did not pick someone really, really stupid to be his running mate. “Mike Pence?” the nation asked. “Who is that?” Upon learning Mr. Pence is the governor of the state of Indiana, the nation shrugged.
The Rocket Wrangler spoke to Dr. Jim Black, a political science professor at Calhoun Community College, for his thoughts. “Well, I must admit I was very surprised when I heard,” Dr. Black said. “On the one hand, I doubt this selection makes people who were undecided about Mr. Trump more willing to vote for him. But on the other hand, this is not the worst choice Mr. Trump could have made. He could have chosen Newt Gengrich, a man who promised to build a moon base by the end of his second term in office, or Chris Christie, who is fat. I have makes I guess the stress of campaigning has gotten to Trump and he is making sensible decisions.” Dr. Black continued. “There was a betting pool in the office, and Kim Kardashian was leading it, followed closely by Kanye West. Thankfully, we will not get to see that.” Still, if Trump wins in November, look for Secretary of Education Kim Kardashian and Secretary of Defense Kanye West!
