Controversial Soccer Star Megan Rapinoe Has Vicious Message for Trump

Soccer star Megan Rapinoe of the U.S. Women’s National Team took aim at President Donald Trump in an interview Tuesday, claiming his message is “excluding people.”

Rapinoe, who won the FIFA World Cup’s Golden Boot and Golden Ball awards after the U.S. women’s team took home the championship, was asked by CNN’s Anderson Cooper if she had a message for Trump.

“Your message is excluding people. You’re excluding me, you’re excluding people that look like me, you’re excluding people of color, you’re excluding Americans that maybe support you,” she responded.

“We need to have a reckoning with the message that you have and what you’re saying about ‘Make America Great Again,’” Rapinoe added.

“I think that you’re harking back to an era that was not great for everyone — it might have been great for a few people, and maybe America is great for a few people right now, but it’s not great for enough Americans in this world,” she said.

Rapinoe wasn’t done.

“You have an incredible responsibility as the chief of this country to take care of every single person, and you need to do better for everyone,” she said.

Rapinoe’s feud with the president dates back several months.

The soccer player refused to put her hand on her heart or sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” during the World Cup.

Rapinoe told Yahoo Sports that month she would be protesting the anthem as an “F you” to Trump and his administration.

When asked whether she would visit the White House if her team won the World Cup, she had a sharp response.

“I’m not going to the f—ing White House,” Rapinoe said. “No, I’m not going to the White House. We’re not going to be invited. I doubt it.”

“No f—ing way will we be invited to the White House,” she said. “[Trump] tries to avoid inviting a team that might decline. Or, like he did when the [NBA champion Golden State] Warriors turned him down, he’ll claim they hadn’t been invited in the first place.”

Trump later responded on Twitter:  “Women’s soccer player, @mPinoe, just stated that she is ‘not going to the F…ing White House if we win.’ Other than the NBA, which now refuses to call owners, owners (please explain that I just got Criminal Justice Reform passed, Black unemployment is at the lowest level in our Country’s history, and the poverty index is also best number EVER), leagues and teams love coming to the White House.”

“I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job! We haven’t yet invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the TEAM, win or lose,” he said.

“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 said Tuesday she still has no plans to visit the White House.

“I would not go, and every teammate that I’ve talked to explicitly about it would not go,” she said.

“I don’t think anyone on the team has any interest in lending the platform that we’ve worked so hard to build, and the things that we fight for, and the way that we live our life — I don’t think that we want that to be co-opted or corrupted by this administration,” Rapinoe added.

A version of this story appears on the Western Journal website.

    She should be it off USA team if she is so anti American! We don’t need her kind trashing all the good things Trump has done for all Americans. If she is so unhappy here just tel her to leave US

      She will eventually lose her spot on the team when the Democrats in the House take away Title 9. To appease the LGBT movement. She will be replaced by a trans gender man and then nobody will watch women’s sports. So she is begging for all the money she can grab now. The Democrats and the LGBT movement will kill all women’s sports. There is going to be some Bruce Jenner type who will be applauded for his/her bravery and take away spots on all women’s teams. They won’t have a league of their own if the LGBT gets it way. And this is already happening with girls high school sports and the Olympics

    She’s excluding any1 with an opinion that differs from hers. Her disrespect 4 those who gave their limbs/lives 2 give her an opnion aren’t even a passing thought. Only her narrow minded agenda counts , other voices need not apply. Just another hate filled self serving elitist “JOCK” using sports 2 push their bias on the society she hates.

      Your Absolutely right, To Me She Is a Blooming Idiot, The Term Make America Great Again, The President Is referring to Building up the Military, Being # 1 Education #1. Economy #1 And Bring Back Jobs For All. Not Racist she is too dumb to understand. That is do to her poor comprehension or Lack of being to Understand, I’m sick and Tired Of hearing ” I’m Gay Poor Me ” This president Has neither said or done anything to suggest what you have accused him of. Personally, I’m Glad you and your followers Won’t be going to the white house. As a matter, the White House Should not have to be embarrassed about your presents. Please quit and Leave the U.S. maybe you can find a better country to put to live in and put up with your bullshit. YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO THIS COUNTRY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Her Parents Failed Her. Whoever they were, shame on them. They raised her to be an arrogant, disrespectful, whiny, hate-filled, brainwashed, non-thinking, bratty, loathsome, out-of-control person. She seems totally miserable with herself and has an uncontrollable need to lash out against all that is Good. Dead Eyes. No Joy, No Happiness exuding from her twisted Soul. She seethes with Resentment and Hostility towards others who have Joy and Happiness. She is Pitiful and Despicable.

    She is an Anti-American Ignoranus. If she hates America so much that she feels she must insult our Country, Flag and President, perhaps she should look into moving to some other country that meets her idea of of greatness. I suggest South America as a starting place.

      I agree. No one in my circle of family or friends gives a flying flip about women’s soccer. A team of 15 year old boys slammed the team ( and they were going easy on the females) which is a good indicator of the USA women’s soccer ream’s abilities. She is a smug, unappreciative narrow minded snowflake. She can keep her liberal gay agenda.

      • SandyJ

        Nuts to her liberal pay agenda also. Leave it to Anderson to keep stirring the pot. She can’t have a substantive conversation because she’s so narrow minded. She’s really a sad case and too blinded to see it.

    I don’t give a poot who she is. She is representing our country. She should observe our national anthem. We as a country are supporting her team. Act like a patriot! If you don’t like our country, then get the hell out of here! I don’t care if she likes other women or not, just represent us well! P.S. I’ve heard this team as sparred with a young high school boys team and they got whooped! If the trans/ gay women want equal rights and pay, then start catching the tabs for dinner when going out. Open the damn door for me. Fix my car, carry the new washer a dryer in the house, mow the dang yard and lastly, quit ruining my life!!! Period!! 🇺🇸MAGA🇺🇸

    July 10, 2019 at 8:07 pm

    she is showing her immaturity, lack of common sense not to mention her lack of intelligence. Her anger about being gay and her hatred of others and this country that affords this opportunity. She can kick the ball but that’s about it oh wait she can follow a leader somewhere whoever that wrongfully leading her around by the nose. She is clearly incapable of thinking for herself.

    If all the above wasn’t true, she would go meet the president & have an open dialog, once her 15 minutes of fame is up her life will turn downward. She has missed an opportunity many would kill for.

    She is a communist. That is all there is to it. I have no respect for her after watching the flag being thrown on the ground. She should be kicked off of the team and sent to IRAN. By the way idiot, anyone can visit the capitol but not the Whitehouse. You are a communist embarrassment to this country.

    July 10, 2019 at 8:47 pm

    She went to the Gay “news man” to claim that the President isn’t fair.I think that the best thing she could do for the team and the country is to shut up and quit embarrassing the team.I didn’t see Cooper say anything about her stepping on the flag.Probably the only reason is that he probably wanted to step on it also.

Otherwise she would not have had her fellow team member drop the USA flag to the floor. This commie should go play for Cuba or Venezuela and then see if any of those regimes would allow her fowl mouth to say words about them as she has for the nation she says she represents. Go meet with the commies on Capitol Hill , you idiot.

    The problem with America today is that Hollywood and professional athletes think that people live and die on their opinions. Most of the people could care less what they think or say. They are legends in their own minds. The people who lean left have the biggest heads and if you do not bow down to their opinion they call you racist or scream, berate, or even attack you physically. They need to grow up and actually act like they are adults and discuss the issues instead of “you don’t kiss my a$$ because of my race or that I’m gay then you are evil racist”. News flash: normal people don’t care who you love or what color you are so get over yourself. You are not that important. Get a real job. Also, you were invited to the White House to celebrate your great victory and you respond like a 2 year old “I don’t agree with your politics so I am going to take my ball and go home”. Once again, grow up. The invitation was not just for your celebration, but a celebration for the whole country. So instead of helping to bring the country together, you just help to divide us and then you blame everyone else. Champions don’t do that.

    President Reagan once quipped, “It’s not that our Liberal friends are ignorant. It’s just that they know so much that isn’t true.” Megan and most of her Liberal friends have been misled and misinformed by the propaganda machine known as the mainstream media.

    Unfortunately, Rapinoe is using peer pressure to keep anyone of her teammates from even thinking about going to the “People’s House”. If they do, they would be a sell out and could face retribution.

  50. Jerry Mulanax

    July 11, 2019 at 1:37 am

    Has Trump ever said he wants to make America great again by returning to the past? Erase all the social gains of equality for all? Didn’t think so. This piece of work is just trying to turn her 15 minutes of fame into a career of activism as another flaming liberal. Watch her actions when she knows she is in the spotlight. She really thinks it is all about her, but her accomplishment was part of a team effort. She is not all that by herself. The flag trampling didn’t look like an accident to me. Watch the clip again for yourself. Don’t give her the time of day.
