Lifting America

Call your Congressmen, and let ‘em know you want a pro-lift candidate on the ballot.

With the 2020 Presidential Election around the corner, the candidates for the Democratic Party nomination have already begun campaigning all across the great states of Iowa and New Hampshire. But one interesting bit of campaign content has hit social media in recent weeks: candidates working out. This, my friends, brings a whole new definition to the term Power Elite. Take a look at some of the documentary evidence I’ve collected below:

The junior Senator from New York, Kristin Gilibrand performs a pectoral fly while campaigning in Iowa. A lot of women shy away from training their chest, but not Gilibrand. Kudos to her. That being said, does her shirt really say “Just trying to get some ranch?” Is that a rancher joke or a ranch dressing joke or a genuine cry for help? I can’t tell.

Beto was most recently a congressman from Texas’ 16th district, which serves El Paso. He’s also running for president, one live stream workout at a time. Beto is hopping around for most of this workout, which is something a middle schooler can understand. Coincidently, most U.S. president’s speak at a middle school level.

Cory Booker, the junior Senator from New Jersey, played tight end at Stanford back in the day. And boy did he look like a semi-threat over the middle in this clip! Today, Booker is most known for being a vegan. There’s nothing red in his diet (except maybe beets).

We’ll end with a few shots of past presidents.
