Missouri Governor Eric Greitens has to be one of the coolest people currently in elected office. He’s Jewish, a Navy SEAL, and a Rhodes Scholar. On top of that, he is the second youngest governor in the country.
His campaign ads featured many prominent explosions, where he brings out the “big guns.” He also raised money for his campaign by selling “ISIS hunting permits” that expire “when we defeat this evil.”
Greitens won his first bid for public office this past November, and during his few months as governor he’s already done some pretty fantastic things. In April he completed the SWAT Team Challenge, where “at times appeared to have to wait on the person in front of him to get out of the way.”
As if that wasn’t enough, Greitens rappelled from the rooftop during Missouri’s Professional Bull Rider competition last night.
Just another day in the life for Governor Eric Greitens.
