Twitter Users React to Condoleezza Rice Joining Broncos Ownership

Former National Security Advisor and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has joined the Broncos ownership group, the team just announced.

Rice is a huge fan of football, having previously served on the first-ever College Football Playoff selection committee. Rumors spread in 2018 that the Cleveland Browns were considering hiring Rice as the team’s next head coach, which were met with equal parts laughter and head scratching.

However, President George W. Bush’s cabinet member has both football and Denver roots: Her father was a football coach and she spent part of her childhood living in Denver before attending the University of Denver.

Rice was a “highly respected public servant, accomplished academic and corporate leader,” according to a statement from Broncos new majority owner Sam Walton, but she will forever be remembered as a main proponent of the disastrous invasion of Iraq in 2003, which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and over 4,500 American soldiers. Additionally, Rice was involved in the Bush administration’s authorization of the use of torture on individuals with links to terrorist organizations.

Given the baggage Rice carries, Twitter users had plenty of hilarious takes on her addition to the Broncos ownership group. Here are ten that stand out:
