GOP candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, who has been losing momentum since the first debate, is now making a desperate attempt to move the arrow as we get closer to voting beginning in the primary election.
Ramaswamy revealed the “mold” of what it would take to be his vice president if he were to win the presidential election.
The long-shot candidate stated he was looking outside the general pool of candidates and would want to look at “people who are executives,” citing Elon Musk as a perfect example of someone he would consider for his VP.
Not in D.C.
Ramaswamy hit the ground running at the start of this campaign cycle, but after getting destroyed by Nikki Haley in the first debate, the fascination with the man who comes off as a cheap copy of Trump has ended.
Ramaswamy is now a distance fourth in the race, getting only 3.5% in national polling, more than eight points behind DeSantis and 7.5 points behind Nikki Haley, with Trump still dominating at 61.2%.
He is not scared to make outrageous statements to make a splash, and if he has any hopes of getting any delegates at all in the early states, he needs to do just that.
So, Ramaswamy announced who he would be picking as his VP, or at least the type of person he would pick.
He stated, "I’m looking for people who are executives.
"Not in the pool of Washington, D.C. If you’re looking outside the pool, there’s 300 million mostly good people in this country … So, a lot of them are going to be outsiders.
“I mean, an ideal vice president would be someone like an Elon Musk. Now, he wasn’t born in the country, so he can’t, you know, but that’s the mold."
Since Musk, who was born in South Africa, is unable to serve as VP, Ramaswamy stated that he would still consider him as an adviser.
He also stated something that I actually agree with, adding, "It helps to have somebody who has complete and total disregard for the norms of Washington, D.C. … Let's take a jackhammer to it. It's all fake. Most of it's made up."
On that front, he got it right, as DC is filled with about 90% of people who are solely looking out for themselves, making money for their next campaign, and they have all forgotten they are there to represent We the People, not lead us.
