Things in Susan Rice’s house might get a little awkward if she ends up being Dementia Joe’s VP pick.
See, you may not know this, but John David Rice-Cameron is a die-hard Trump supporter.
Yes, so all those times that Susan’s friends attack Trump supporters, they’re actually attacking her son…
And to make matters worse for Susan, her son isn’t just your run-of-the-mill conservative, he was the leader of the Standford College Republicans and he vowed to Make Standford Great Again.
Ha ha ha ha, oh Karmaq is delightful isn’t she?
John David Rice-Cameron — the son of Susan E. Rice, a former national security adviser to President Barack Obama — is proof, in many ways, that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. He is a student at Stanford, as was his mother. He is invested in politics, as is his mother. Both caught the political bug early, serving on student council in high school.
But the son stands apart from the mother in at least one major way. She is not just a Democrat but a veteran of the Clinton and Obama administrations whose hopes of succeeding Hillary Clinton as secretary of state were wrecked by political shrapnel from the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya.
Rice-Cameron is not just a conservative but the head of the Stanford College Republicans and a proud supporter of President Trump. His ambition is to “Make Stanford Great Again.”

During a recent interview with NPR, Rice said that blood was thicker than politics, regarding her son, John David.
“I have a 23-year-old son whom I love dearly, whose politics are very, very different from my own and from the rest of our family,” the former Obama administration cabinet member told NPR. “My son and I will have some robust disagreements over some matters of policy, not all. And yet, at the end of the day, you know, I love him dearly, and he loves me.”
John David also confirmed that he and his mom can find some common ground in their political views, despite disagreeing on most issues.
“We agree that America is the greatest nation the world has ever seen, and thus, we believe that America has an important role to play as a force for liberty and justice on the world stage. We support robust American engagement in Africa, and we agree that Russia poses a major threat to American interests. We agree on the importance of American allies, and in a continued American commitment to NATO,” John David said.
You’ll recall, back in June, Rice said that President Trump’s supporters in the Senate belong “to the trash heap of history.”
What about those of us, including your son, who are not in the Senate, but support our president? Are we trash too?
