President Donald Trump responded to radical left-wing women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe, opting for a touch of class over insults.
Rapinoe, a co-captain of the U.S. Women’s soccer team, has been taking a knee in protest during the playing of the national anthem, calling it a “good ‘F you’” to the Trump administration.
“I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart,” the gay player said last month. “I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again.”
And when asked this week about the possibility of visiting the White House if the team wins the championship, Rapinoe answered, “I’m not going to the f—ing White House. No. I’m not going to the White House. We’re not going to be invited… I doubt it.”

For the record, Rapinoe did visit the White House in 2015 under President Obama.
Taking to Twitter Wednesday morning, President Trump proved the player wrong, saying in a tweet that other than the NBA, teams “love” coming to the White House.
After noting a few of his accomplishments that are having a positive effect on the black community, Trump said he was a “big fan” of the U.S. Women’s team and he encouraged Rapinoe to focus on winning.
“I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job!” the president said.
He then dropped a bit of a shocker, which will put Rapinoe in an awkward position.
“We haven’t yet invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the TEAM, win or lose,” Trump added. “Megan 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. The USA is doing GREAT!”
Rapinoe is rabidly anti-Trump, and has called the president a“sexist,” “misogynistic,” “small-minded,” “racist” and “not a good person.”
Her arrogance was on full display in an interview with Yahoo Sports.
“Because I’m as talented as I am, I get to be here, you don’t get to tell me if I can be here or not,” the player said. “So it’s kind of a good ‘F you’ to any sort of inequality or bad sentiments that the administration might have towards people who don’t look exactly like him.”
“Which, God help us if we all looked like him. Scary. Really scary. Ahh, disturbing.”
So off-putting is she in her liberal views, Rapinoe manages to prompt some Americans to consider rooting against their own team.
This from a co-captain on the team… what does that say about those running the U.S. Women’s program?
