Trump Campaign Asking VP Candidates If They’ve Ever Been Convicted Of A Crime

According to Ohio Republican Sen. J.D. Vance, the campaign of convicted felon/GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is currently vetting potential running mates for the ticket.

Vance was a guest on “Fox & Friends,” and co-host Steve Doocy noted there are reports that some of the possible vice presidential candidates have “been asked to submit documents to be vetted.”

“You’re not at that level yet,” Doocy suggested, adding: “Or are you?”

Vance confirmed that his team had been asked “for a number of things. A number of people have been asked to submit this and that.”

Doocy then inquired, “Like your taxes or something? Your criminal background?”

“I don’t know everything they’ve been asked. Yeah, but certainly like, ‘Have you ever committed a crime?’ ‘Have you ever lied about this?’ Certainly, you have those conversations, but I think a lot of people have those conversations,” Vance told Doocy.

So let’s see if I’ve got this right. The Trump 2024 camp, which is headed by a man who was recently convicted on 34 felony counts in New York, wants to know if potential running mates have a rap sheet, but they’re just fine with Donnie’s criming. Yep, that’s certainly on brand for the biggest hypocrite to ever run for office.

As you’d expect, the irony wasn’t lost on social media, with many — including former Biden administration press secretary Jen Psaki — pointing and laughing.
