Walker! Walker! Pick Walker!

Donald Trump is weighing his options.
Walker! Walker! Pick Walker!

Donald Trump is talking about the Veep spot on the Republican ticket.

Answered prayers.

Yes. I like Marco Rubio. Yeah. I could,” he answered. As for a potential Rubio vice president: “There are people I have in mind in terms of vice president. I just haven’t told anybody names. … I do like Marco. I do like (John) Kasich. … I like (Scott) Walker actually in a lot of ways. I hit him very hard. … But I’ve always liked him. There are people I like, but I don’t think they like me because I have hit them hard.”

Oh, oh, oh. Scott Walker, please Scott Walker.

Trump described himself as an Ayn Rand fan. He said of her novel The Fountainhead, “It relates to business (and) beauty (and) life and inner emotions. That book relates to … everything.” He identified with Howard Roark, the novel’s idealistic protagonist who designs skyscrapers and rages against the establishment.

Yeah, that worked really well for Rand Paul.

He says “it relates to business and beauty and life and inner emotions.” Like other books don’t. Maybe if he’d read Grapes of Wrath … nah, Trump does not own a pair of empathy pants.
