Trump to run with Vladimir Putin in 2016, well not really


Donald Trump has chosen Russian President Vladimir Putin as his running-mate.

Well, not really, but according to a mock press release put out by Ohio Gov. John Kasich's presidential campaign he is.

Putin praised Trump earlier this week and Trump has said in interviews since that he thinks it's great to have Putin's support.

Here's the parody release from the Kasich campaign:

TRUMP NAMES VLADIMIR PUTIN AS HIS RUNNING MATE

Duo Pledge to “Make Tyranny Great Again”

In a bold and visionary move characteristic of everything he does, today terrific billionaire Donald Trump named Russian President Vladimir Putin as his running mate in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.  Trump pledged that together with Putin he would “Make Tyranny Great Again.”

Trump said he picked Putin to be his vice president for his strong approach to dealing with dissent, flexible approach to democracy, rule of law and the Constitution, and his willingness to regularly violate other countries’ territorial integrity in blatant violation of international law if it suited his aims.

“I think I would just get along very well with Vladimir Putin. I just think so. People say what do you mean? I just think we would,” said Trump.

Putin readily accepted Trump’s offer to serve on his ticket, saying, “He’s a really brilliant and talented person, without a doubt…he’s the absolute leader in the presidential race.”

Trump also unveiled a new website for the dictatorial duo: Trump-Putin2016.com, as well as the Twitter feed @TrumpPutin.

Concerns that a Putin vice presidency is, well, illegal are just sour grapes from dummies not smart enough to think of it first.
