Georgia Republican firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene is aiming high.
According to former White House strategist Stephen Bannon, the Georgia lawmaker is angling herself to potentially be selected as Donald Trump’s choice for Vice President in what is his third pursuit of the White House.
“This is no shrinking violet, she’s ambitious — she’s not shy about that, nor should she be. … She sees herself on the short list for Trump’s VP,” Bannon told NBC News.
When Greene “looks in the mirror, she sees a potential president smiling back,” Bannon added.
An unnamed source in the NBC News piece concurred that Greene’s “whole vision” is to snag the second-in-command slot on Trump’s ticket.
The source noted Rep. Greene’s recent efforts to rebrand herself as a politician who has the ability to “stand astride the divide between the party’s hard-liners and its establishment wing” is definitely part of a larger goal.
Recently, MTG threw herself into the middle of the contentious battle to elect a new Speaker of the House. Bannon told NBC that Rep. Greene’s support of Kevin McCarthy was a calculated risk.
“She’s both strategic and disciplined — she made a power move, knowing it would run up hard against her most ardent crew,” he said. “She was prepared to take the intense heat/hatred short-term for the long-term goal of being a player.”
Rep. Greene has made a name for herself in Congress as a far-right firebrand and staunch supporter of the former President. The Republican lawmaker endorsed Trump even before his official 2024 launch.

Wrong! I like her but DeSantis would make the best ticket and then DeSantis would be president for two terms and we need that to devastate the DemocRAT Politicians!
MTG, good choice.
She’s too divisive to be the VP for Trump. He needs someone who is as stalwart in belief as Green. Independents would never rally behind her though. I really like MTG. I just don’t see her as a good pick.
She has a nice flow of plain English and can compartmentalize ideas ; an irresistible operator to run Whitehouse affairs. Simply brilliant pick. She will get back for Trump what the canker-party worm has stolen from him.
I agree with the “DonRon” ticket, although I don’t think DeSantos would do it. If he did we would, for sure, be out of trouble ASAP.
I like DeSantos very much, and understand the turmoil that might come with Trump, however; he could pull us out of this quicker than anyone, that is just a fact. I believe the only reason that he would be willing to put up with what we have done to him is that he loves America.
He is the only one that does not have to prove himself to the world, they know he will do what he says he will.
If his name is on the ticket I will vote for him. You bet.
We see !
Very Interesting I like MTG as well but Not totally sure if she is the one for VP. Maybe a bit abrasively strong. I would consider Kari Lake for her experience in how to deal with the Fake MSM and her Godly background. But when it comes to Man to Man Trump/DeSantis ticket! Mostly over all How wonderful it is to have such wonderful people to choose from and ready to step up to the platform! Who does the Democrats have to fill in after they finish throwing their “selected” Biden under the bus? Seriously WHO?
The best choice out there is Trump for president and DeSantis for vice-president. Trump would deliver, and DeSantis would make sure with a follow up of eight more years of great leadership which would destroy the Democrat Communist Party ( DCP ) forever. Their records speak for themselves, with that kind of leadership in the whitehouse America and it’s people would be safe forever. This is really a no-brainer and really so important for America’s survival. Martin Korab
Would pay to see her debate Sandy Cortez from Westchester ( I refuse to use the initials she would like) or any one of the other hate America losers that populate the once respectable Democrat party.
I have to agree with some of the other comments written. If we can have a Trump for 4 more years, and De Santos for the next 8 years, hopefully, they will be able to get a lot of this socialism/communist garbage OUT of our government! The Democrats have completely ruined the state of California. And also Washington state, and Oregon! They have managed to make the whole West Coast a Sh*thole, from what was once was a wonderful place to live!
It’s sickening too see. It’s filthy dirty, and causes a myriad of horrid diseases! Why would civilized, property-tax payers still pay taxes on property where homeless are sleeping in tents on the sidewalks, shooting-up drugs, defecating, urinating, and throwing used drug paraphernalia on the streets in front of business establishments and near schools where children must walk through to manage to get to school! It is not only shameful, it is stupid that Americans are putting-up with such nonsense from their elected officials. Where is the Better Business Bureau in all of this? Why are they not helping business by helping to STOP THIS INSANITY! Don’t people have the smarts to either IMPEACH these INSANE politicians or VOTE THEM OUT, or at the minimum, BAN TOGETHER TO STOP PAYING PROPERTY-Taxes until this type of UNCIVILIZED insanity is stopped! It should be DEMANDED to be cleaned-up!
No decent civilized people or POLITICIANS (if they are In Their right mind), would allow people to sh*t and Pee on the streets and in front of businesses, UNLESS they WANT those BUSINESSES CLOSED to make the city a MISERABLE PLACE for everyone living there! The democrat party was taken over by the Marxists way back in the early 1950’s.
How it is you just keep voting for democrats, when they ALLOW pooping and peeing in public on our city streets. EVEN UNCIVILIZED PEOPLE KNOW BETTER THAN THAT!! Where are your brains??? Not to mention the Diseases it causes! And, your worried about CoVid? You had better start worrying about a lot worse diseases than that, with all this peeing a pooping in public, on the streets! What is wrong with people that they do NOT MARCH ON CITY HALL and DEMAND this is STOPPED!!! They certainly march for everything else! Maybe they should be made to march on the sidewalks instead of the streets, where cars drive. (The city seems to manage to keep that part clean though. Don’t they? You Democrats ever ask why?
