Vivek Ramaswamy, the biotech entrepreneur and former Republican presidential hopeful, has shown that he can take a joke, even if it involves his ethnicity and a convenience store.
Ramaswamy, who dropped out of the race after a poor showing in the Iowa caucuses, recently endorsed Donald Trump, the frontrunner and incumbent president. This sparked rumours that Ramaswamy might be Trump’s running mate, with some supporters chanting “VP, VP” at a rally in New Hampshire.
The Babylon Bee, a conservative Christian satire website, poked fun at this scenario with a post claiming that Trump had offered Ramaswamy a “very important cabinet position”- running the White House 7-Eleven store. The meme piece quoted Trump as saying, “Under Biden, the White House doesn’t even have a 7-Eleven. Not good! We’re going to bring convenience back to the West Wing!”
The post said that Trump would work closely with Ramaswamy every day and that he would stop by for a Diet Coke and “one of those delicious warmed-up cheeseburgers under the hot light thingies”. It added that Ramaswamy had already started training for the job by watching videos on “how to fix the Slurpee machine” and “offer fast service ringing up Big Gulps”.
