Megyn Kelly notoriously thought she lived rent free in Donald Trump’s brain and knew his mind backwards and forwards.
In an interview with pro-DeSantis influencer Dave Rubin, Megyn Kelly offered her two cents on rumors around who Trump will select for his running mate.
Conservatives may not like to hear it, but she believes that Trump will pick RINO Nikki Haley.
When it was first suggested in popular media that this could happen, Donald Trump, Jr. took to the public saying that he would do everything in his power to prevent his father from selecting Haley, as she represents the Liz Cheney wing of the GOP on issues like those in foreign affairs.
Even Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene spoke out about the rumors, warning that Trump’s “MAGA base” would revolt if Trump went with the pro-Ukraine war, pro-mass immigration Nikki Haley as his VP candidate.
Throughout the election cycle, Haley has proven time and time again how she is the antithesis of the MAGA movement.
She supports a 23 percent national sales tax, forcing Americans to register their identity with the government in order to post on social media, and even allowing businesses to dictate unlimited amounts of immigration into the U.S.
Megyn Kelly shrugged off the disdain for Haley from the MAGA crowd.
Kelly explained that the ‘pros’ of Haley joining Trump on the ticket greatly outweighs the ‘cons’.
She pointed out that Haley on the ticket would enable Trump to woo suburban women and win the White House, and MAGA would just fall in line.
“Is it out of the realm of possibility that he chooses Haley? Absolutely not,” stated Kelly. “I realize that MAGA doesn’t want it. They’ve convinced themselves that Nikki Haley is against all the things that they stand for.”
She also mentioned that the election isn’t just about winning the White House. She says that winning or losing could be the difference between Trump going to jail or not. Kelly argued that if Trump believed that putting Haley on the ticket would avoid that entirely, then he would make that compromise.
“He personally really must win if he doesn’t want to go to jail. If that’s your situation, I think you might be thinking, ‘MAGA is going to get over Nikki Haley if I tell them to get over Nikki Haley,’” Kelly added.
Kelly emphasized her certainty on the matter by proclaiming, “I know for a fact that’s how Trump thinks.”
The problem with bringing Haley on board is that it would be a massive move for the GOP back in the direction of George Bush-era party politics.
Trump supporters, concerned about a flank from the conservative establishment, have been warning that this could cause a major disaster – adding Nikki Haley to the ticket.
If Trump makes Haley his Vice President, this could inspire Mitch McConnell and the other RINO’s in the Senate to do the unthinkable; convict Trump the next time the Democrats take majority in the House in order to elevate Haley to the Presidency.
