KIRO Nights host Jack Stine believes he has the perfect formula to make Gov. Jay Inslee the President of the United States if he wants to run in 2024.

As KIRO Newsradio reporter Hanna Scott shared, Inslee recently met with people in Chicago, which has led to a rumor that he may be considering another presidential run in 2024.

“It’s still rumor, I want to be clear, but I’m starting to think that, you know what, maybe,” she said.

“If he wanted to be President of the United States, he would have to let me mold him. He would have to let me craft [him],” Jack said.

Jack says he has thought about this “at length,” and has decided that he would make Inslee “the liberal Donald Trump.”

“I would make him the most obnoxious, in-your-face progressive imaginable. But I’m not talking like Elizabeth Warren, I’m not talking like Bernie Sanders. I’m talking about raw and brash like Donald Trump,” he explained.

Maybe like Kshama Sawant, as Hanna offered, “but I would make him more affable,” Jack clarified.

“I would tell him to flirt with coeds, you know what I mean? I would tell him get into a bar fight, but then shake hands with the guy afterwards and say that you don’t actually like fighting,” Jack continued. “Get some scars, get a tattoo — get a Poison tattoo or a Twisted Sister tattoo, and maybe a koi fish on the other arm.”

“Make yourself the bad boy of liberal politics,” he added. “And then also push everything that Donald Trump was pushing on the Republican side, but push it from the liberal perspective.”

“It might get it done,” Hanna laughed.

Jack suggested he would have Inslee team up with “really liberal rappers,” or “go on the Joe Rogan podcast and swear a lot.”

“I think that he would pull it off. Remember the Segway he had a couple years back? We get one of those, but it’s got bumper stickers,” he suggested.

“I can’t even tell you the flurry of visuals I’ve got going on right now,” Hanna said.

To top it all off, his nickname, Jack says, would be “Dangerous Jay Inslee.”

“Inslee 2024: You heard it right here on KIRO Nights,” Jack laughed.
