Vivek Ramaswamy, in his brief political career, has never shied away from telling people how much of a visionary and wonderful he is.
He did it again this week by finding a video of himself asking Al Sharpton a question during the 2004 election cycle, reported The Hill.
To quote Ramaswamy, he is giving himself a "pat-on-the-back" for having asked the question.
What is better than someone who tells you they are great all the time? Could it possibly be that he is uber-insecure about himself and needs to show people what he needs to be congratulated on?
That is Vivek Ramaswamy to the tee.
Ramaswamy was in the crowd when Al Sharpton was doing a town hall that was aired on MSNBC decades ago.
The then-18-year-old Vivek asked him, "Of all the Democratic candidates out there, why should I vote for the one with the least political experience?"
Sharpton, in part, responded, "Well, you shouldn't, because I have the most political experience.
"I got involved in the political movement when I was 12 years old. And I've been involved in social policy for the last 30 years, so don't confuse people that have a job with political experience," reported Fox News.
Here is the tweet and Vivek slapping himself on the back over it…
I’ll give the 18-year-old version of myself a pat-on-the-back for eliciting the most sensible words ever to come from that man’s mouth. 20 years later, it’s funny how the tables have turned. 😄 pic.twitter.com/PfehQRXSvz

Ramaswamy had previously stated that he had not voted until the 2020 election, but he has now added the 2004 election, saying he voted for the libertarian candidate in the race.
This guy has done nothing but lie and change his platform throughout this election.
He is doing nothing more than measuring what people want to hear, very specifically MAGA supporters, then changing his tune to fit that narrative.
When on news shows and at the debate, he is trying to be a younger version of Trump, and it has worked to a degree, but make no mistake about it… Ramaswamy is a fraud and he needs to be removed from this race as quickly as possible.
He is playing a game, and the last thing we need right now is a candidate who is not truly taking this race seriously.
We just have too much at stake to allow him to get any grip whatsoever in the conservative movement.
Ramaswamy is currently sitting in third place in most polls, well behind Governor Ron DeSantis, and completely out of reach of Donald Trump.
The only purpose he is serving now is blocking votes for DeSantis, which is ideal for Trump.
I believe that Trump has recruited Ramaswamy specifically to take votes away from DeSantis, so while the ideal situation for DeSantis would be that he is heads up with Trump by Super Tuesday, I just do not see that happening right now.
And if Ramaswamy stays in this race through Super Tuesday, it is basically over and Trump walks with the nomination with ease. But I have to keep asking that burning question... what is in it for Ramaswamy?
