Secretary Mike Pompeo: Bringing Swagger Back
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would like to change his title to “Secretary of Swagger”
United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo signed an email on Monday with the words, “keep on crushing it,” alluding to the relationship between India and America. Robbie Gramer, a diplomacy and national security reporter at Foreign Policy, posted the very end of Pompeo’s email to Twitter.
Pompeo also set up his own Instagram account and his first post featured the words “Department of Swagger.” That post was quickly followed up with a post featuring William Shakespeare, General George Patton, and Pompeo himself.
While some have voiced negative feelings towards the new “hip” secretary of state, others seem to really enjoy his sense of humor. Politics can be frustrating and complicated, why not laugh a little along the way?
Amateurs and novices. We have amateurs and novices in the government. It's like having pre-pubescent teens running the world.— Jour in New York (@ResistTrump17) September 10, 2018
Sourpuss. What older people cannot have a sense of humor? He grew up in the Eighties he could have said a lot worse 😂. I thought it was funny.— Th0r (@TH0R1N1) September 11, 2018
