US Women's Soccer Captain IGNORES National Anthem At World Cup Because She Hates Trump

Linkedin Share

The US women’s soccer team destroyed Thailand 13-0.

Co-captain Megan Rapinoe decided to ignore the National Anthem as a way to spite President Trump.

It begs the question: why not just quit the team!?

From Daily Caller:

U.S. women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe ignored the national anthem before the Women’s World Cup game against Thailand on Tuesday.

She was seen standing silently without her hand over her heart when the national anthem played on Tuesday while her teammates sang and placed their hands over their hearts, The Blaze reported. Many people took to social media in response showing both their support and disagreement with her decision.

Megan Rapinoe is not singing the anthem (because she’s not allowed to kneel) and I love her so much it hurts

so weird to have a scowl while your national anthem, the one that gave you the freedom to pretty much actually PLAY in this game @mPinoe #USWNT

The United States Soccer Federation has said all players must stand for the anthem before games.

Rapinoe said she would cooperate.

How nice of her.

Megan ranted on a little more about LGBT rights and this and that, noting that there’s “such a disparity in this country in so many different ways, inequality in so many different ways.”

SMH.

Maybe Rapinoe would be more comfortable living in the Middle East, where gays are treated so well?

Maybe she just needs to get smarter faster and realize how great she has it in America?

Hmmm.

Clearly, Megan is someone who doesn’t care about the thriving economy and low unemployment rate for her fellow Americans.

She’s a social justice warrior through and through.

Sad, really.

After winning the Super Bowl over the Los Angeles Rams, a New England Patriots player immediately said he wouldn’t go to the White House to meet with President Trump.

Who saw that coming?

Trump need not fret. It wasn’t star quarterback Tom Brady who made the comments.
