Sen. Marco Rubio and his wife were invited to take their luxury speedboat up the East Coast to Washington, D.C., Wednesday to meet with President Donald Trump.

While at the White House, Rubio posed for a photo with Vice President Mike Pence and Lilian Tintori, an activist whose husband, Leopoldo Lopez, has been held as a political prisoner in Venezuela since 2014.

ThinkProgress editor Ian Millhiser, who’s made a bit of a name for himself for this sort of thing, wondered why the woman he suspected was Marco Rubio’s wife was dressed like a pirate.

He’s woke, but a sleepy kind of woke.
