Report: Marjorie Taylor Greene Is “Angling” to Be Trump’s VP Pick

Final November, we noted that there have been few scarier phrases within the English language than “Donald Trump has kicked off his third bid for the White Home,” besides perhaps “…and Marjorie Taylor Greene is his working mate.” Sadly for humanity, that first waking nightmare has certainly come to go—and if the congresswoman from Georgia has something to say about it, the second just isn’t far behind.

NBC Information reports Greene is “angling to be Donald Trump’s working mate in 2024,” in response to two individuals accustomed to the matter who’ve spoken to the GOP consultant about her plans for the long run. “That is no shrinking violet, she’s bold—she’s not shy about that, nor ought to she be,” former Trump adviser and convicted criminal Steve Bannon instructed the outlet. “She sees herself on the quick checklist for Trump’s VP. Paraphrasing [the late political reporter] Cokie Roberts, when MTG appears to be like within the mirror she sees a possible president smiling again.” (Earlier this month, the Day by day Beast reported that Greene was certainly on Trump‘s quick checklist, together with Consultant Elise Stefanik, South Dakota governor Kristi Noem, failed gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, and Democratic presidential candidate turned Fox Information contributor Tulsi Gabbard.) One other particular person instructed reporter Jonathan Allen that Greene’s “complete imaginative and prescient is to be vice chairman,” including that they imagine she ought to be among the many candidates the ex-president considers.

The identical sources instructed NBC Information that Greene’s imaginative and prescient explains her “latest efforts to rebrand herself as a politician who can stand astride the divide between the celebration’s hard-liners and its institution wing,” and “threw herself into serving to elect Rep. Kevin McCarthy” as Speaker of the Home. “She’s each strategic and disciplined—she made an influence transfer, figuring out it will run up onerous in opposition to her most ardent crew,” Bannon instructed Allen, referring to Greene’s break with her pals in the Freedom Caucus, whose opposition to McCarthy led to the California lawmaker dropping the Speaker vote a whopping 14 instances earlier than his final win. “She was ready to take the extreme warmth/hatred short-term for the long-term purpose of being a participant.”

After all, Greene can try and rebrand herself all she desires, however the truth stays that it is going to be onerous for voters to neglect about what they already learn about her, the lowlights of which embrace that she:

  • Believes there’s some “fact” to the conspiracy theories unfold by QAnon, which claims that Democrats are a part of a Satanic cabal of cannibals working a worldwide intercourse trafficking ring that conspired in opposition to Trump whereas he was in workplace;
  • Doesn’t believe in evolution;
