LAS VEGAS — U.S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, in town to address a meeting of the Western Governors Association, met a president instead.
As Jewell made her way to the stage, a Theodore Roosevelt impersonator scored a brief audience. Environmental activists have sent a Roosevelt impersonator to several events Jewell has held, to advocate for conservation issues. “Nice to see you again,” Jewell quipped.
Perhaps Roosevelt got lost: The Rough Rider Memorial Collection he might be looking for is in Las Vegas, New Mexico, not Nevada.
Don’t call him Teddy, though: The camelhair-sweatered former president introduced himself to attendees as “Theodore.”
