I am already on the record stating that I believe Ramaswamy is a snake oil salesman, and he continues to play MAGA to keep that standing as the second favorite.
The last straw poll that was taken at the Turning Point conference had him solidly in second place, although he is far down the rankings in national polls.
If Trump is out of the picture, however, that could change dramatically, and that seems to be the game that Ramaswamy is playing here.
Going After MAGA
Ramaswamy continues to try to gain favor with MAGA voters by not attacking Trump… quite the opposite, actually.
With even more charges being announced against Trump, there is now a very strong possibility of Trump being indicted, which would upend the presidential primary race in the GOP.
When Ramaswamy was recently asked about pardoning Trump if he was elected president, he, of course, said he would because he knows that is what MAGA voters want to hear.
He stated, “The standard I use as our next president is what moves our country forward? What is the right thing for the United States of America?
“I would pardon him. I intend to be our next president, and yes, I do believe I will move us forward. I believe one of the right ways to do that is pardon the former president of the United States from what is clearly a politicized persecution,” reported the Washington Post.
He continued, “I think that the general norm in our Justice Department is you should not convict somebody of a process crime when there was no actual underlying crime,” reported Breitbart.
His definition of a “process crime” was ludicrous, defining it as, “A crime that would not have existed but for the existence of an investigation.”
If that were the case, and we never had investigations, then there would never be any crime.
Please, MAGA, do not fall for this clown. If you want to vote for Trump, by all means, pull the handle for the man, but do not be duped into thinking that Ramaswamy is a true conservative and will serve our purposes if chosen because Trump is unable to continue his campaign.
