Specificity? Never mind, your type don’t dwell in details. It’s the office, not the individual. Knit wit.
Ships, "offices" are occupied by individuals, and in many instances it (in this scenario tru to form) the individual that occupies "the office where the person is suppopsed to attend to the matters of state and manage our country" is what she is referring to. BTW, anyone read the recent Time magazine article that bears her image as part of the main magazine cover???
'Your type?' Hahaha.
By that do you mean, ridiculously accomplished and thoughtful role models for young athletes everywhere?
1963 called and it wants it's not so vaguely misogynistic pronoun back!
Yes, she’s a role model for young soccer players of both genders and a good one. She needs to stay in that sphere for she like many are talking point depth only. And, Jeff, how did you deduce misogyny? You could have accurately deduced celeb (cause), generational, safe spacers.
Yeah, I jumped to misogyny!
'Your type' must be what I objected to...
At least people hiding behind pseudonyms have an unquestionable right to weigh in on celebrities' right to weigh in!
First, she has to win the World Cup..
I wish that we could discuss soccer instead of politics.
She would not visit the White House if invited. Neither would I. (There hasn't been a President in the White House I would have liked to meet since #41.) Her rationale doesn't matter, except to herself.
And oh yeah...talking point depth?
this role model has actually put her considerable earnings power at risk by speaking up articulately on key issues!
Do your homework before trolling successful people in the comments!
Oh brother! Libs getting all up in arms... Ships made a legitimate comment.
Legitamate? Hardly, the entire world considers ad hominem "comments" to be fallacies, regardless of the speaker's politics.
I don’t fault any athlete or celebrity who chooses not to attend a White House photo op if they don’t support the current President. The “it’s the office” argument seems trite when the officeholder in question has so little respect for the position he holds. My problem is this — isn’t it incredibly premature to be asking about White House visits before the team has played its first group stage game? They haven’t exactly been inspiring confidence in their warmup matches....
It is Time magazine reporting about what it is interested in.
