Default Megan Rapinoe for president

I'd like to thank the leaders of the website for "The WeeK" for hiring the mentally challenged...

Megan Rapinoe for president

Quote:
There are three things we know to be true about 2019.

First, we know that the U.S. Women's National Team is, once again, the best women's soccer team on the planet: They won their second consecutive World Cup on Sunday.

Second, we know that the team's star, Megan Rapinoe, is no fan of President Trump, and won't be visiting the White House to celebrate that victory. (The team will get a ticker tape parade in New York, however.)

Third, we know that there are entirely too many people running for president — but that it's still really early, and no Democratic candidate has broken away from the pack yet.

These three facts may seem disparate, but taken together, they offer an intriguing possibility: Rapinoe shouldn't dismiss the idea of visiting the White House entirely — she should just wait until she's ready to move in and live there.

Yes, I'm saying Megan Rapinoe should run for president in 2020. She's already got Twitter's vote

...This might sound ridiculous. After all, Rapinoe has no real qualifications to serve as president. She's famous and outspoken, and right now she's ridiculously popular. She'll turn 35 next July 5, which means that she'll meet the Constitution's minimum qualifications for the presidency by the time the election rolls around in November 2020.

Then again, look at our current president. Evidence suggests that Trump didn't expect to become president when he ran for office — instead, he allegedly wanted to use the 2016 election as a jumping-off point to start his own television network. He had no history of public service, and his private sector accomplishments were questionable, to say the least. It's fair to say that Trump has knocked down the idea that you need any but the minimum qualifications to actually become president.

All you need these days is celebrity and attitude. Rapinoe has plenty of both.

What's the argument against her running? That she has ridiculous hair? That she alienates our British allies? That she's boastful, arrogant, and divisive? Rapinoe couldn't do any worse than Trump on those counts, could she?

In fact, there are a few areas in which she could compare and contrast herself favorably against Trump.
I saw this when Ashley Judd and Alec Baldwin were contemplating running for office...They HATE the idea that an entertainer and/or someone outside of the political world actually won, then cry "Two can play at that game!" every time a Lefty celebrity gets extra-popular...They're not looking for anyone that actually has executive/leader experience...Just the next hero to worship...

They never do. They are just the rantings of a drunken socialist.
