I am normally a huge Dan Bongino fan, however, my respect for former New York police officer and Secret Service agent Dan Bongino just went into the dumpster on this issue with his suggestion that nepo-baby Donald Trump, Jr. would make an acceptable running mate for his father. 

Perhaps he hasn’t noticed that Junior has significant daddy issues, and some of his past activities involved little more than lies and grifts.

Something has been on my mind. Let me just get it out upfront.

I think someone they should consider for vice president, who I haven’t heard a single person talk about, is Don Trump Jr.

Now, I get it. Some of you are like, do we really need another Trump to compliment a Trump?

Folks, let me ask you a simple question. And I’m going to answer that for you.

Is anyone going to the polls in November, going to vote for the vice president on the Trump ticket.

I don’t care who it is. Pick your favorite politician outside of Donald Trump, ever.

Is anybody on planet Earth voting for the vice president? No, they are not. They’re not. I’m sorry. They are not.

So here’s the thing.

Donald Trump’s going to be a one-term president, could be a very effective one-term because he already was the president. So there’s no warmup period. He doesn’t have to come out of the bullpen. They don’t have to get the righty. The righty’s already there, warmed up, ready to go.

So it’s going to be a different kind of second term. He’s a lame duck, but he’s really not. He knows where the bodies are buried, and he doesn’t have the pressure of re-election himself.

But think about it. People are voting for Trump. The Trump brand, the Trump name, the Make America Great Again thing.

I like J.D. Vance personally. He’d be a great pick. He’s probably going to be the one.

But I think he should strongly consider Don Jr.

He’s got balls of steel. He’s as MAGA as it gets. He represents the brand. Huge Second Amendment guy. He talks the talk. You ever see his Instagram? He just goes for it.

I think it’s a great idea. But I told you, I knew some people wouldn’t like it.

But it’s my, folks, I think it would give us a solid, potentially 12-year run going through. Again, it’s not a loyalty thing.

I’m worried about a loyalty issue. I really am. And that’s obviously not going to be a problem. You got a guy who can immediately take the Trump brand and run with it for another two terms.

But this is on my mind for a long time now. Wouldn’t it be a great sign? Trump, Trump, make America great again, again, and again, and again.

It’d be pretty awesome.

The Vice President is not an apprentice President…

In what way would Donald Trump, Jr. be prepared to take over the presidency of the United States if something happened to his father?

Can Junior stand up to the increased media scrutiny, which would provide the media with an abundance of distracting negatives?

Even worse, can you imagine Don Junior’s girlfriend, the smarmy, self-important Kimberly Guilfoyle, California Governor Gavin Newsom’s ex-wife (2001-2006), becoming the First Lady?

Even Trump, Senior, thought Junior was a non-starter in the previous election. He relied on his infinitely more intelligent son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to represent him on the world stage while Junior played at being a sycophantic and obsequious attack dog.

Bottom line…

Usually, Bongino has excellent instincts, but at least on this issue, he may be flying too close to the Trump orbit.

I, too, am worried about a loyalty issue. I would like to see Ron DeSantis become Vice President, followed by J.D. Vance. North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum is a richer, more successful version of former Vice President Pence without the quirks.

We are so screwed.
