Donald Trump so far is the only GOP candidate to announce a run for president in 2024, announcing his intentions in November. The exceptionally early declaration, even by today’s standards, drew much commentary over social media.
Now a new information drop regarding the former president’s attempt to get back in the White House has netizens, well, chuckling. For others, it’s not such a laughing matter but, were it to come to pass, their worst dream becomes reality.
Trump and team are spitballing names for VP
Firebrand Republican US Representative from Georgia and Trump devotee/acolyte, Marjorie Taylor Greene, “is angling to be Donald Trump’s running mate in 2024″ according to reporting from NBC News. Sources told the media outlet that former top Trump aide, Steve Bannon said: “She sees herself on the short list for Trump’s VP… When MTG looks in the mirror she sees a potential president smiling back.”
She may not be wishfully thinking according to earlier reporting, in one sense at least, of being the second-in-line were Trump to win in 2024.

One of the choices is an ideal one for Trump loyalists with Rep. Matt Gaetz tweeting “She should absolutely be considered.” But outside of her fan base it’s another story…
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene memes: What did the internet say about her as Trump’s VP?

What do you see when you look in the mirror?
It’s just too much to handle…
Someone else thought they were Trump’s VP pick
This next one might need a little explanation if you’ve been fortunate enough to avoid talk of QAnon conspiracies. To not have to go into too much detail, JFK Jr is apparently not dead and is supposed to be Trump’s running mate in 2024.
The other competitors
Unfortunately, despite Ms Greene trying to position herself as part of the former president’s inner circle and to be the MAGAest of his followers, she may have some competition…
