Lynda Carter isn’t just offering Hillary Clinton 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.

{mosads}“Hillary has my endorsement for all of her life and mine,” Carter said of Clinton, who has not formally thrown her Amazonian tiara into the ring.

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.”
