Gingrich Sings Trump’s Praises – Will he be the GOP Candidate for VP?

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA) was a guest on Donald Trump’s favorite cable talk show, Hannity, where Gingrich explained how Donald Trump was about to win in a landslide.

I think two things are going to happen just because of his nature. I think it’s to be a small election and that between two personalities because he can’t help himself and she’s so vulnerable, and that’s going to be a huge election about really, really big policy differences and I think both are going to occur simultaneously and they are going to be mutually reinforcing. 

What’s going to happen is, this is going to surprise you, I think you’re going to see us replace red and blue states with green for Trump and orange for Hillary and you’re going to see Trump will be competitive almost everywhere in America because the potential today, for example, when he’s on your show, he’s in 435 congressional districts.

And the messages about corruption and decay — just if you said to every person when they go to the airplane and they’re really mad because they’re standing in line for an unnecessary extra hour, this is the Hillary Clinton-Barack Obama failed bureaucracy with the unionized leadership that is failing America. Wouldn’t you rather have a businessman run it so you can actually get through security and get on your plane? Just take that one example and you’re going to have dozens of those examples between now and the election.

Meanwhile, over on CNN, former Senator Bob Dole (R-KS) was on CNN singing the praises of Newt Gingrich and openly hoping that Mr. Trump will choose Gingrich as his running mate. Dole also encouraged GOP voters to fall in line behind Mr. Trump’s candidacy in an effort to keep Hillary Clinton out of the Oval Office.

“The party has done a lot for me. I hope I’ve done a lot for the party along the way. But when Donald Trump clinched the Republican nomination, it was an easy call for me. What’s a lifelong Republican supposed to do, support the opponent? I don’t think so,” Dole remarked. Later Dole explained why he thought Trump should pick Gingrich as VP, “My view is that Donald Trump needs someone who understands Congress, who can help him work with Congress, who understands foreign policy, domestic policy, economic policy. You know someone like Newt Gingrich. You know none of us are perfect, but Newt Gingrich is a good fit for Trump, because he can help him in all of those areas and Trump has to listen.”

It sure seems as though the situation is unfolding perfectly to see Newt Gingrich chosen as Donald Trump’s running mate. Though there may be a good argument to be made that Trump would be far better off choosing a qualified female or minority candidate for the position – someone like Marco Rubio , Susana Martinez, Tim Scott . Whatever happens next, we can be sure that Donald Trump will make his choice in as theatrical a fashion as possible.
