Sen. Corker blows minds with surprise plug for who would be Trump’s ‘best running mate’

Move over House of Cards… real life in knocking.

Sen. Bob Corker withdrew his name from consideration to be Donald Trump’s running mate this week, but the Tennessee lawmaker did offer some unexpected advice on who the presumptive GOP nominee should add to the ticket.

How unexpected? Try Trump’s daughter Ivanka.

“His best running mate, by the way, would be Ivanka,” Corker said on Wednesday. “I know that wouldn’t pass muster, probably, but I don’t know that I’ve met a more composed, brilliant, beautiful-in-every-way person.”

And to ensure he is not hit with charges of sexism, Corker quickly added that Trump’s son Eric is “equally impressive.”

Technically, Ivanka is currently not qualified to be vice president — the Constitution requires a person to be at least 35 years old, BUT she turns 35 on Oct. 30, eight days before election day.

And Eric Trump when visiting Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” this morning said he’s more than open to the idea and judging from social media response had plenty of support.

But others had a hard time wrapping their brains around the idea:
