Politics has taken a new turn with the election of Donald Trump, however this latest announcement has got to have even the most loyal Dem Pundits, laughing in their sleep.
Gov. of Washington Jay Inslee who is polling lower than Jeb Bush, claimed that if he wins he would ask Megan Rapinoe to be Secretary of State.
“My first act will be to ask Megan Rapinoe to be my secretary of state,” he said at the political convention Netroots Nation.
“I haven’t asked her yet so this could be a surprise to her,” he said to the adoring crowd at the progressive convention.
“I actually believe this because what I think what she has said that has inspired us so much is such an antithesis of the president’s foreign policies,” he said.
According to The Federalist Papers, The comments came a day after Sports Illustrated reporter Grant Wahl said that Rapinoe could get into politics someday.
“When you look at what she talks about, how comfortable she is doing that, how important all this stuff is to her, using her platform,” he said.
“I wouldn’t be surprised eventually if that might be something that she thinks about. If she wants to pursue that, I think she could.”
The comment also comes after Rapinoe made a significantly political speech at the New York City ticker tape parade to honor the team.
“This is my charge to everyone. We have to be better. We have to love more, hate less. We’ve got to listen more and talk less,” she said.
“We’ve got to know that this is everybody’s responsibility,” Rapinoe said after she spent an entire tournament dividing people.
