Jose Canseco is targeting another moonshot.
The former Major League Baseball superstar asked Donald Trump on Wednesday night to hire him as the White House chief of staff. Canseco issued his request for consideration directly to the president via Twitter, teasing a secret reorganization plan and offering him daily workout sessions.
John Kelly currently serves as Trump’s chief of staff but he’ll be leaving his role at the end of the year. The search for Kelly’s replacement is one of the most closely-watched topics in Washington, D.C.
Nick Ayers was believed to be the favorite to replace Kelly but he turned down the job, opting to continue in his role as vice presidential chief of staff, instead.
Perhaps that opens the door for a wild card like Canseco, who played 17 MLB seasons for seven teams between 1985 and 2001, to shake up things at the White House. Here’s to hoping that doesn’t actually happen.
