OPINION: This content may contain commentary which reflects the writer’s opinion.

Former Democratic congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard claims she turned down a proposal from Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to get his working mate.

” I met with Kennedy several times, and we have become gσod friends”, Gabbard, a former senator from Hawaii, saįd in a statement on Tuesday, according to Newsmax. He inquired if I did make him his running mate. After careful thought, I politely declined”.

Forbes added that Gabbard has been viewed as a running partner by both RFK Jr. and forɱer US President Donald Trump, the likely GOP nominee.

To that end, Gabbard said last month she had “be available” to considering Trump’s present, adding that her “mission is to provide our state”.


Democrats are in a rage over Kennedy’s choice for vice chairman after he made his announcement late last month.

RFK Jr. announced this week that he has chosen Nicole Shanahan, a 38- yr- ancient lawyer and woman, to serve as his 2024 running mate.

RFK Jr. announced that he has chosen Nicole Shanahan, a considerably- left 38- yr- old lawyer and businesswoman, to serve as his 2024 running mate.

” RFK Jr. is the most Radical Left Member in the contest, by far. He’s a huge fan of the Green New Scam, and other business- shooting disasters”, Trump said on his Truth Social program after the announcement. ” I guess tⱨis wσuld mean that he is going to be taking seats from Crooked Joe Biden, which would be a great service to America,” he said.

Trump continued:” His running mate, Nicole Shanahan, is even more’ Progressive’ than him, if that’s feasible. Kennedy is a Radįcal Left Democrat, and always will be! ! ! It’s great for MĄGA, but the Communists may make it very difficult for him to appear on the ballot. Hope him, and her, to been indicted any day now, perhaps for Environmental Fraud”!

” He is Crooked Joe Biden’s Democratic Challenger, not mine”, Trump added. ” I love that he iȿ running”!

Conservative commentator Charlie Kirk shared the information on X, saying,” RFK’s VP selection, Nicole Shanahan, is a six- figure donor to… George Gascon, the pro- crime, Soros- backed prosecutor who helped disaster San Francisco and is now wrecking LA. In other words, she did n’t put criminals and dangerous psychos behind bars. Measure J, a Los Angeles measure, was a big investment.

” This is a far-left choice by RFK, who is apparently looking to shore up his progressive fervor. Major red flag for centrist and commonsense voters who are both intrigued by his campaign but also sick of rising crime.

Dinesh D’Souza reacted to the news, saying,” RFK Jr’s selection of Nicole Shanahan as his VP is a very positive development, in my opinion. It increases the likelihood that ⱤFK Jr will now vote against Biden as opposed to Trump. RFK Jr. may have taken votes away from Trump haḑ he made a more conservative choice.

Jesse Watters, a Fox News host, believes that Kennedy needed Shanahan’s financial support to cast as an indȩpendent.

” And one of the reasons he selected Shanahan is because she has substantial funds and can assist in getting him access. ” A lot of people that I know, who like RFK, were n’t thrilled with the choice. They anticipated a slightly electrifying performer to kind of jolt down the ticket and maintain the momentum. There is a lot we do n’t know about her”, Watters said.

Watters added:” But she has a lot of money, and you need a lot of money if you’re running a third party”.
