Warren Reportedly Looking At Failed Governor Candidate Andrew Gillum As VP Running Mate

A winning strategy?

Andrew Gillum might just fail his way to the top if Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) somehow manages to snag the Democrat nomination for president. Never mind that Gillum has been embroiled in scandals ever since losing the Florida gubernatorial race to Ron DeSantis in 2018. That doesn’t matter to Warren or any lefties, for that matter.

What matters is that a woman becomes president and a minority serves under her. That’s the goal. Who cares about good policy when you can push a social justice warrior agenda? Who cares about doing the right thing by America and Americans, right?

Shame. Here’s what’s up…

Presidential candidates often keep a running list of influential individuals who they will informally call for ideas, advice, and, perhaps, to scope them out as a potential running mate.

And for several candidates, including at least one in the top tier, former Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is on speed dial. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), in particular, has been in contact with Gillum over the past several months, multiple knowledgeable sources told The Daily Beast.

Reactions:

I swear they’re trying to re-elect Trump.

Tfw you snub the Governor of Georgia for the Governor of Florida

Picking someone as ethically challenged as @AndrewGillum for the VP nom would be a poor electoral move on @ewarren’s part – but one I hope she makes 🙏🙏

When reached for comment about the vice presidential buzz, a Warren campaign official said, “that is baseless and not at all true.”

But two sources said the talks between Warren and Gillum resemble the kind of courtship that happens when a leading presidential candidate is exploring potential vice presidential contenders. One source briefed on the communications said the two Democrats have been in contact over the course of the campaign and that it is the “strong impression” that Gillum is a possible vice presidential contender for Warren, who has risen in recent months to become a frontrunner in the 2020 primary, the source said.

The suspect involved in the killing of three individuals and the wounding of several others at Naval Air Station Pensacola was apparently a Saudi Arabian aviation student. Authorities investigating the shooting that occurred on Friday are working to find out if the incident is terrorism-related. The suspect, as of this writing, has not yet been named, though it is known this individual was here in the United States to receive flight training. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: The U.S. Navy confirmed that the gunman and two other people were killed in the mass shooting, which took place in one of the base’s classrooms. Eight people were transported to the hospital where an additional victim died. Two of those wounded in the shooting were deputies who engaged in a shootout with the man. One was shot in the arm and another in the knee but both are expected to survive. The gunman was killed shortly before 8 a.m. by other responding law enforcement officers. More than 23,000 military and civilian personnel work at NAS Pensacola. It’s considered one of America’s oldest stations and is known to be the home of the well known Blue Angels flight demonstration team.

Hungarian Officials Says Impeachment Witness George Kent Not Credible. ‘I Was There, He Was Not.’

Published

on

A top Hungarian official recently stated that George Kent is not a credible witness for the impeachment proceedings against President Trump, poking fun at his allegations that Prime Minister Viktor Orban encouraged the president to view Ukraine negatively. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “This is a great honor for us, to be honest, that we were portrayed as a central European country which can change the position of the president of the United States,” Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto joked in an interview with the Washington Examiner on the sidelines of the NATO Leaders’ Meeting. “It can be taken as an honor. Well, I’m afraid it has distance from reality, to be honest.” Orban emerged as an unlikely player in the Ukraine impeachment controversy in October, when a senior State Department official testified that the Hungarian leader had contributed to Trump’s distaste for Ukraine. George Kent, one of the State Department’s top officials for Europe, told lawmakers that Orban echoed Russian President Vladimir Putin in portraying Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as in a “thrall” of corruption. “He’s not that credible in this regard,” Szijjarto said of Kent, whom he noted did not attend Orban’s May 13 meeting with Trump. “Simply because he was not there. I was there, he was not there.” “Viktor Orban’s beef with Ukraine is derived in part [from] his vision, in my opinion, of a greater Hungary. This issue of greater Hungary is at the top of Orban’s agenda. And so he has picked this particular issue and, for instance, blocked all meetings in NATO with Ukraine at the ministerial level or above because of this particular issue. So, his animus towards Ukraine is well-known, documented, and has lasted now two years,” Kent continued. Kent then went on to say in his testimony that the Hungarian…
