Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Donald Trump is in the middle of a tough search for a vice president — any vice president. No one seems to want the job, and Trump is scrambling to show the world a ticket that makes him look like anything other than a crazy reality star who’s been wandering onto the wrong cable channels.

He’s really scraping the bottom of the barrel, so we at The National Memo decided to put together a little tip sheet to make his choice easier.

Newt Gingrich

Biggest Strength: That no-longer-relevant vibe that Trump supporters seem to love!
Biggest Weakness: He would be the “smart one.”

Chris Christie

Renamed by Trump: “The Quiet One”
# of Wives: 1, but he’d leave her in a second for Bruce Springsteen.

  1. any vice president. No one seems to want the job, and Trump is scrambling to show the world a ticket that makes him look like anything other than a crazy reality star who’s been wandering onto the wrong cable channels//// id have to bet on him picking the air head Sarah Palin. and it will be the start of them starting the next cable channel show maybe called ONE DUMPTED IN THE PALIN . it would start when thy lose it all and yooo hooeee Palin becoming the DUMPSTERS next wife just for the first season . 2nd season will be DONNY DUMP using all his lawyers to save him money in the devoice . but air head will keep talking (yes even worse then DONNY DUMP if you can believe that ) and the DUMPSTER just telling her ill give you what you want just shut up and get out take the cable show . take my kids PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE take every thing just give me on thing a naked pic of you hand cuffed on my plain so I can put it next to the one of my wife . and take her too

  2. The only bar to today’s “devout Christian” working “with” the devil is the latter’s non-existence. If the devil does exist, they don’t work “with” him: he owns most of them.

  3. It appears there is no-one worthy to back-up tRump, guess that eliminates the Republican presidency; wow, an uncontested Presidential election . . . . on the other hand, it gives Gary Johnson a real chance . . . .
