Talk about mending fences…

During an interview with Kirsten Powers Thursday, Donald Trump revealed some surprising names of people he’s considering as a running mate if he becomes the Republican presidential nominee.

Those names include former presidential candidates who lambasted him in the past, but who have now expressed a willingness to work with him.

And to that end, he told Powers, writing for USA Today, that he’s ready to “start building coalitions” in the spirit of party unity.

“People you see excoriating me on TV … are calling my office wanting to get on the team,” he said. “I actually asked a couple of them, ‘How can you do this after what you said?’ And they said, ‘No problem.’”

Could those names include the junior senator from Florida?

“Yes. I like Marco Rubio. Yeah. I could,” he told Powers. “There are people I have in mind in terms of vice president. I just haven’t told anybody names … I do like Marco. I do like (John) Kasich … I like (Scott) Walker actually in a lot of ways. I hit him very hard … But I’ve always liked him. There are people I like, but I don’t think they like me because I have hit them hard.”

And what of Rubio’s joke about the size of Trump’s hands, and by extension, the size of his manhood?

“He made a mistake,” Trump said of that incident. “He became Don Rickles for about four days, and then I became worse than Don Rickles.”

Could we be looking ahead to a Trump-Rubio administration? Why not? It could be a crazy end to a crazy political season.
