Women’s Soccer Star Teams Up with Cryin’ Chuck Schumer & Stabs Donald Trump an America in the back

U. S. women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe told the media this week she will officially be accepting an invitation extended by Congress to come visit, but not be visiting the White House, saying; “I think most of the team, if not everybody, I think everybody is with me. We don’t want to go to the White House.” “Thank you [Sen.] Chuck Schumer for inviting us out. We are very happy to accept your invitation to come.”

Rapinoe previously said she is ‘not going to the f—— White House’ and that there would be ‘no f——— way’ the team would be invited in the first place.”

Teammate Alex Morgan shared a similar view: “Yeah, I don’t want to like, necessarily speak for the entire team. Obviously, we all have our own opinions and I’m sure that they’ll get shared eventually. I’ve said my piece. I don’t feel necessarily welcome there and so I don’t believe that I will be individually attending,” Morgan said.

Trump has targeted Rapinoe in the past for her anthem protests and her harsh criticism of the White House.

There’s just one problem: She’s actually kind of an awful person. Megan Rapinoe has soccer skills for sure, but her entitled, selfish, and unpatriotic attitude is the epitome of first-world privilege. According to Rapinoe, she’s an oppressed victim of sexism. However, what Rapinoe truly is just another celebrity and a millionaire.

Rapinoe is too drunk on political correctness and her own celebrity to acknowledge the inconvenient reality that viewership for the men’s World Cup, win or lose, vastly outweighs that of the women’s tournament. For reference, it’s estimated that 1 billion people will have watched the 2019 Women’s World Cup, but the 2018 men’s World Cup reached 3.6 billion.

Also, is it that unreasonable to think that the time of megastar Christian Pulisic is worth slightly more than hers? Granted, he makes a $1.14 million salary right now in Germany, but Chelsea Football Club just paid more than $72 million to Pulisic’s club for the right to sign him to a new contract in England starting perhaps next year.

Rapinoe’s been at the forefront of the demands for “equal pay” compared to the men’s soccer team, but be honest – two years ago, the world’s uncontested best women’s national team, our own, lost very badly to a team of boys under age 15. So maybe they should get paid what the 15-year-old boys get paid?

That was a cheap shot, and I apologize, kinda. The gap in talent is going to be reflected in both viewership and in pay structures, but Rapinoe can only gain in celebrity victim hood by pretending these disparities aren’t important. Why not stir up the maximum possible baseless outrage?

Beyond the embarrassing exercise in self-victimhood, Rapinoe’s personality is marred by her lack of appreciation for the country that has given her the chance to rise so far and achieve so much. She has turned the women’s historic World Cup win into a political pissing match, when it could have been a bipartisan moment of unity for the country. When asked, Rapinoe said, “I’m not going to the f—ing White House.” Plus, she has repeatedly knelt for the national anthem and said, “I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart. I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again.”

After her World Cup victory, Rapinoe and a teammate dropped the American flag on the ground to pose for a photo opp.
