Trump drops hint about running mate

Former President Donald J. Trump, almost certain to run for President again, dropped a hint Saturday about potential running mates. Specifically he suggested he might select a woman to run for Vice-President alongside him. Speculation immediately erupted as to who that woman might be.

What Trump said

In an interview with NBC’sKristin Welker, Trump spoke about recommending a woman as Vice-Presidential nominee to the Republican convention. He insisted he would select the best person for the race, but “I like the concept” of picking a woman.

Further into the interview, he specifically spoke about recommending Gov. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.) as his running mate. “She’s been a great governor,” he said. Trump also acknowledged her endorsement of him at a recent South Dakota rally.

Kristi Noem won a sterling, unsurpassed, and nearly undisputed reputation for not “locking down” her State in response to COVID. The one dispute results for her having asked the legislature to authorize such measures as became the norm in States like California and New York. It’s a fact that, with no such law on the books, she did not issue any executive orders, as Govs. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.), Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) Ralph Northam (D-Va.), and other Democratic governors did. “I don’t have the authority,” she said.

Gov. Noem did more than that. On abortion, “Diversity/Equity/Inclusion,” and men in women’s sports, she has made stand-out efforts.


But one candidate whom Welker and other observers have not mentioned, is Arizona’s Kari Lake. She is still trying to litigate the Arizona Midterm, and speculation has centered on her running for the Senate. But that hasn’t stopped people from speculating about Trump picking her to run for Vice-President.

The oppo research against Noem

Clearly the “opposition research” wing of the legacy media has been busy with Kristi Noem. The Daily Mail and the New York Post both carry accusations that she had an affair with Trump adviser Corey Lewandowski. Noem denies those claims.

The only accusation against Kari Lake is of being a sore loser for challenging an election. And that’s only because Americans still don’t want to believe that anyone can steal an election today. (Or perhaps that’s what the legacy media want people to think.)
