Linda McMahon, Who Gave the World ‘Eugene’, to Represent US at Special Olympics
President Donald Trump on Friday announced the US delegation to the Special Olympics World Games, which will be held next week in the United Arab Emirates.
The delegation will be led by Second Lady Karen Pence. Others in the delegation are:
- Steven Bondy, Chargé d’Affaires ad interim, United States Embassy Abu Dhabi
- Vice Admiral Jerome M. Adams, M.D., M.P.H., Surgeon General of the United States
- Mr. Mariano Rivera, Co-Chair of the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition, Former Pitcher for the New York Yankees, and 2019 inductee to the Baseball Hall of Fame
There is one more – Linda McMahon, Administrator of the Small Business Association. McMahon is the former head of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and a long-time Trump friend.
McMahon is a curious choice to represent the United States, Publici’s Dave Levinthal pointed out on Twitter, because in 2004, the WWE, at the time under McMahon’s leadership, introduced “Eugene Dinsmore,” who was a “special talent.”
2/ In "Eugene"'s debut, he was referred to as a "window licker," "nincompoop," "not right" and "not normal," and he proceeded to slobber on the forehead of one of the ring announcers.
