[Ed. – She can kick a ball into a net and swear like a longshoreman. What other qualifications do you need to become a Democratic candidate for president these days?]
Earlier this week, anthem-protesting U.S. Women’s Soccer star Megan Rapinoe told MSNBC that her girlfriend, WNBA star Sue Bird, told her that she might be asked to run for president of the United States soon.
Rapinoe’s remark came after MSNBC host Rachel Maddow predictably gushed over the athlete for her political activism. “I feel like you have become more and more comfortable and more and more articulate in terms of using the platform that you’ve got to say what you think ought to be happening in the world,” the far-left host oozed, according to Newsbusters, later adding that Rapinoe seemed “more calm, more capable, more eloquent than ever, and it seems like that gets better over time. And so that makes me want you to do this forever. … [Y]ou’re really good at talking when you need to talk and saying things that need to be said.”
