Vivek Ramaswamy has turned himself into the sweetheart of the MAGA world.
He is even starting to get the attention of Donald Trump, who may be considering him as a VP on the ticket.
Trump only set those rumors on fire when he was asked what he thought about Ramaswamy as his VP, responding, "I think he'd be very good,” reported the Washington Examiner.
For the record, thus far, Ramaswamy has stated that he is not interested in being a number two.
He is already on the record saying that if he loses the nomination, he will go back to the business world.
However, he has changed his positions like the wind, so seeing him backtrack on that claim would not be all that much of a surprise.
When Trump was asked about Ramaswamy, his answer was very interesting, both a compliment and a word of warning.
He stated, "He's a smart guy. He's a young guy. He's got a lot of talent.
“He's a very, very, very intelligent person. He's got good energy, and he could be some form of something, I tell you.
“I think he'd be very good,” reported The Hill.
However, Trump claimed, "He's starting to get out there a little bit. He's getting a little bit controversial.
“I guess I'd tell him to be a little bit careful."
Now, I have already stated that I do not like Ramaswamy one bit and that is because I think he is playing everyone.
If you look back at his comments, he seems to do what Trump is infamous for doing: floating an idea, seeing how people respond, and then running with it to build his popularity.
Trump did this in office to get a feel for how people would react to certain policies, whereas Ramaswamy is doing this just to gain favor with the MAGA crowd.
I have stated from day one that I thought Vivek was working MAGA and sucking up to Trump for a big payoff down the road, but since he has stated he does not want to be VP, I am still trying to figure that out.
He is up to something, but I am just not sure what.
Trump has to be very selective in picking his VP because it could be the difference between winning and losing.
I have always believed the VP is about attracting voters you personally do not attract, so from that aspect, what exactly does Vivek bring to the table?
The answer… NOTHING.
