A leading Florida newspaper columnist says GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump's mention of Gov. Rick Scott as his vice-president would be like "tuberculosis picking leprosy as a running mate."

"Scott is one of the least popular sitting governors … A viral video of a woman berating Scott at a Starbucks last month has gotten nearly as many YouTube views (2.3 million) as Scott got votes in 2014 (2.8 million)," Michael Mayo writes in the Sun Sentinel.

"In a weird way, the polarizing Trump might view that as a positive. His counterintuitive campaign doesn't seem concerned with winning any popularity contests. He keeps bulldozing his way to the general election with all the subtlety of a stink bomb in a perfume shop."

Mayo says in some ways both are opposites.

"Scott has a reputation as aloof and robotic, the anti-Trump when it comes to personality and humor," Mayo writes.

"Trump relishes confrontation. Scott avoids it. Trump loves an open mic. Scott prefers closed doors. Trump's hair is one of the Eight Wonders of the Modern World. Scott's hair ... uh, never mind."
