Lynda Carter isn’t just offering Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonPolitiFact trolls Trump during inauguration speech The Hill's 12:30 Report Trump: We’re giving power back to the people MORE an early endorsement; the “Wonder Woman” actress says the former secretary of State can even claim the Lasso of Truth as her own.
Carter, who famously wore a patriotic leotard and golden belt as the superheroine on the 1970s TV show, told ITK recently she’s rooting for Clinton in 2016.
Then, the onetime TV crime-fighter dropped the bombshell that she’d even give up one tool from her character’s magical arsenal.
“She can have my Lasso of Truth,” Carter, 63, said with a smile. The fictional weapon was “formed from Aphrodite’s girdle and forced whomever was bound with it to obey the commands of whomever held the other end,” according to a fan website.
But it’s not just Clinton Carter says she admires: “The women who are in Congress are the ones that float my boat,” the Washington-area resident said.
“Look at other countries who have suppressed women — they’re a mess!” she exclaimed, before quickly adding, “We’re a mess too sometimes — but we need more women in politics, on whatever side you’re on. We just need the complexity and fire that women have.”
