During an interview last month, the aging player unprofessionally interrupted her interviewer by stating, "No f***ing way will we be invited to the White House." She then went on to falsely claim that President Trump does not invite teams to the White House that might decline the once in a lifetime, generous, personal invitation to go to the White House. On top of both of those statements, the co-captain childishly added, "I would hope no one voted for him" further alienating any Trump supporters on a team that needs unity more than ever, after being gifted a win by officiating in their last game. As a supposed leader, you would think that she would bring the team together and wait to open her mouth until after the tournament is over, instead of fracturing the team by speaking for them and not with them.
Once word of Megan Rapinoe's statements went viral and reached Donald Trump's busy ears, he, as a real leader, gave her some advice: WIN first before you TALK. Calling out her lie about invitations immediately, Trump invited the United States Women's Team to the White House, win or lose. The 45th President of the United States also defended America and told Rapinoe that she should never "disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team. Be proud of the Flag that you wear." He also did what something she did not, and promoted the sport by telling his 61.4 Million followers, and the world, that he is a fan of the American team and women's soccer.
As an openly gay woman, Megan Rapinoe should be a lot more grateful to have the opportunities and life she has in the greatest country in the world.
With or without Megan, true Americans have Made America Great Again and will Keep America Great the next 4 years!
