Recently, some pundits have, paradoxically enough, noted a few similarities between Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) and Donald Trump.
Each presidential candidate shouts at his rallies. Each has loyal, devoted followings.
Both have populist aspects. Each one has serious hair problems (one of them doesn’t care what his hair looks like).
So a bemused solitary reporter can’t help but wonder: after Trump secures the Republican nomination, might he be nonsensical enough to ask Sen. Sanders (whom he regularly accuses of fomenting riots as he prepares to deliver his vitriol at virtually everybody except himself) to serve as his vice president?
But before whispering a word of this mildly mischievous thought to anyone, the solitary reporter called Sanders’ campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, to solicit his thoughts.
Incredibly enough, Weaver never returned the phone call.
In other news, yesterday, in the GOP convention in the District of Columbia, Sen. Marco Rubio (TP-Florida) came in ahead of Ohio Gov. John Kasich, with Trump a distant third. Rubio’s campaign manager, Terry Sullivan, told our associate solitary reporter, Jim Smith, “Actually, Jim, I’m really embarrassed about this. Marco spends very little time here in Washington; he doesn’t like serving in the Senate; and his campaign theme, above all others, is to run away from Washington. Now, as he’s about to lose big time to the Manhattan megalomaniac in his home state on Tuesday, this unwelcome win is going to come back to haunt him, big time."
