Roger Stone Floats Democrat as Potential Trump VP Pick

Roger Stone on Tuesday wrote on his Substack about Robert F. Kennedy Jr. running for president in 2024 as a Democrat.

Stone noted that RFK Jr.’s candidacy is “intriguing” and could “potentially substantially” impact the upcoming presidential race.

Democrats are not widely on board with a second Biden term, so RFK Jr.’s entry into the race is interesting to say the least.

Stone wrote at Stone Cold Truth with Roger Stone:

Kennedy – who is the scion of the Kennedy political legacy, the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, and the son of former U.S. Senator and U.S. Attorney General Robert Kennedy – has a long record of environmental activism and support for other progressive policies – but it is his longtime criticism of the safety and effectiveness of vaccinations for which he is best known.

Kennedy raised concerns about the link between vaccinations and autism in 2015 and has emerged as the best-known critic of the safety and effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccination—culminating in his landmark book, The Real Anthony Fauci.

Stone explained how it will be extremely difficult for RFK Jr. to garner much success in the Democrat Party machine’s nomination process.

Thus, he floated another potential idea.

Stone suggested that Trump pick RFK Jr. as his vice president for a “bipartisan” unity ticket.

Stone writes:

With Kennedy emerging as the leading vaccination skeptic in the country and staking out an anti-globalist “America First” foreign policy view, those in Trump World would be wise to carefully monitor the progress of his candidacy. Just as a third of Bernie Sanders’ voters ended up voting for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential general election, the votes garnered by Robert Kennedy could easily end up in the Trump column in November of 2024.

Given America’s state of peril, if RFK performs better than expected, the former President should consider the drafting of RFK as the Republican vice presidential candidate in a “bipartisan” unity ticket. This idea is not without precedent; Senator John McCain really wanted Democrat Senator Joe Lieberman as his running mate in 2008. McCain was ultimately talked out of the idea.

Whether a freshly nominated Trump – who I believe will sweep to the Republican nomination despite the obstacles put in his way by the deep state and the two-party duopoly that is increasingly frantic not to face him again at the polls – could persuade a Republican National Convention to nominate Kennedy for Vice President, whether Kennedy – having been man-handled in the Democrat Party nominating process – would accept such a nomination, and whether state law in certain states would allow for the nomination of a registered Democrat on the Republican ticket, are all potential obstacles to what I believe could emerge as a “dream ticket.”

One thing is certain, however, the selection of RFK would silence those within the Republican Party who are today critical, in retrospect, of Trump’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as building a bridge for thousands of Democrats and Independents disgusted by Biden’s fumbling foreign policy and the implication of the collapse of U.S. economic dominance to vote for Trump.
