Joltin' Joe Biden, you want a woman for your vice-presidential running mate? Look no more. The outrageous Megan Rapinoe is willing and able to handle the job ... and continue her pro soccer at the same time. Your big decision just got easier!
"Megan Rapinoe is ready for a new gig," reports USA Today sports writer and Trump hater Nancy Armour:
"The two-time World Cup champion offered to be Joe Biden’s vice president during an Instagram Live with the presumptive Democratic nominee and his wife Jill Thursday.
“ 'I don’t want to put you on the spot -- I think I could still play soccer and do this,' Rapinoe said. 'But if you need a vice president, I’m just saying I’m available for an interview. We can talk logistics and the details. Put it on your list.' "
Joe's wife Jill has already shown support for the wild child Rapinoe, by dying her hair purple to match the U.S. national soccer team player's signature look at the World Cup last year. Mrs. Biden said she would “love” seeing Rapinoe on the ticket with her husband. The former vice-president laughed at the suggestion and said his granddaughter Maisy, who was a high school soccer player, would also support Rapinoe serving as his running mate in November's election.
Can you imagine a VP Mike Pence vs. Rapinoe debate? A decent, sensible leader paired against a firebrand athlete whose language would be frequently bleeped by network broadcasts! Must-see TV!
Just think of the national anthem getting played at the DNC convention: Biden running mate Rapinoe, with her history of protests, proudly serving as the party's designated kneeler, disrespecting America's heritage and the veterans who sacrificed for liberty. Armour would love it. Biased media types would eat it up.
On Instagram TV, Rapinoe posted a message about her intentions to bring Democrats together to understand they'll win the presidency in November.:
As if anyone needs to be reminded, Armour writes that Rapinoe "has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, citing his discriminatory policies toward people of color and the LGBTQ community, and she famously said before the World Cup that the team would not go to the White House if it won. When Biden showed her a photo of his family at the 2015 final, Rapinoe joked that, “I wanted to go to THAT White House.”
To set the record straight, Rapinoe actually said she would not go to the f***ing Trump White House.
Biden warned that "Vice president Rapinoe" would have to take a pay cut. One of the leaders of the U.S. women's soccer team's legal fight for equal pay with men, Rapinoe confirmed:
“You know I’m not into that.”
The trial over soccer pay will begin June 16. Biden predicts Rapinoe and the women's soccer players will win the case.
Previously, Rapinoe had supported Sen. Elizabeth "Pocahontas" Warren's run for president, but she's long gone from the campaign and Biden is the Dems' presumptive nominee. Front-running Rapinoe's all in on his campaign now.
“I hope people are inspired and motivated to get involved in this election moving forward,” Rapinoe told the Bidens. “I think that there is a candidate in you that is looking to bring people together and there’s a candidate whose sole purpose is to divide us so he can stand on top of us both.”
Liberal media types are eager to see Rapinoe cash in her fame on a political career. Last summer, Vanity Fair ran a story on Rapinoe's political potential, posing the likelihood as merely a question of whether she should run for mayor, the Senate or president.
