Jeffrey Lord: Trump Picks on Jeb Because He ‘Is the Very Symbol of the Establishment’

‘And whether it’s Jeb Bush or John Kasich or some of these others, I think that’s a real weakness, and I think that somebody on the outside is going to win this nomination’

CUOMO: “All right. Geoffrey, what about this one? The chance that Donald Trump picks a female running mate before the convention?” 
LORD: “Before the convention?” 
CUOMO: “Yes.” 
LORD: “Possible, yes, sure. I can see it.”
CUOMO: “Possible. It’s possible that Alisyn knocks me unconscious in the next 15 seconds.”
CAMEROTA: “Probable!”
LORD: “I heard (ph) that once. You know, so I think, sure, absolutely. Absolutely. I mean, if Donald Trump wins this nomination or it becomes certain ahead of time that he’s going to do it, yes. Yes. That’s possible. He could pick Carly Fiorina. He could pick...”
NAVARRO: “Oh, come on, Geoffrey! He can’t stand Carly Fiorina. He has said over and over again that five — five minutes of hearing her voice is, you know...” 
CARPENTER: “But Carly holds her own in the debate.”
LORD: Wait. “Wait, wait, wait, wait. JFK couldn’t stand Lyndon Johnson either, but he made him vice president.”
NAVARRO: “Yes, well, Donald Trump is no JFK.”
LORD: There’s one — there’s one other thing here. I really do think this is going to be the year of the outsider. Again. And, I mean, election year itself. So whether it’s Donald Trump or Ted Cruz or whomever, I think the outside is winning. I think that’s why Donald Trump picks on Jeb Bush all the time. Not because he thinks Jeb Bush is a threat, but because Jeb Bush is the very symbol of the establishment. And whether it’s Jeb Bush or John Kasich or some of these others, I think that’s a real weakness, and I think that somebody on the outside is going to win this nomination.”
CAMEROTA: “I think we’re going to leave it there.” 
CUOMO: “Absolutely.” 
CAMEROTA: “Geoffrey...”
LORD: “Happy New Year.” 
CAMEROTA: “Thank you, guys. Thank you, Amanda and Ana, great to see you.”
NAVARRO: “Feliz ano nuevo.”
CAMEROTA: “Thank you.” 
CUOMO: “Mick.”
