Exclusive: Trump Puts Lion Killer On VP Short List

Donald Trump is seriously considering asking Dr. Walter J. Palmer, lion killer, to join him as running mate even before the 2016 primaries begin, a source wishing to remain anonymous to avoid embarrassment by association says.

"Donald is looking for a man with true courage," the source says. "He was impressed by Doc Palmer's trip to the Dark Continent, where he bagged Zimbabwe's most notorious killer with only a bow and arrow."

Trump is said to have told his closest advisers that "This lion guy is an authentic hero, unlike John McCain. McCain probably doesn't even own a bow and arrow. And all the other Republican candidates are losers. I wouldn't want any of them on my ticket. I want winners who can bring me the head of a wild beast on a platter."

Meanwhile, Republican opposition researchers were working feverishly to connect Palmer's visit to Zimbabwe to the Benghazi scandal, seeing as how both are located in Africa.
