Megan Rapinoe: My Girlfriend Told Me They’re Gonna Ask Me ‘To Run For President’

Published

Earlier this week, anthem-protesting U.S. Women’s Soccer star Megan Rapinoe told MSNBC that her girlfriend, WNBA star Sue Bird, told her that she might be asked to run for president of the United States soon.

Rapinoe’s remark came after MSNBC host Rachel Maddow predictably gushed over the athlete for her political activism. “I feel like you have become more and more comfortable and more and more articulate in terms of using the platform that you’ve got to say what you think ought to be happening in the world,” the far-left host oozed, according to Newsbusters, later adding that Rapinoe seemed “more calm, more capable, more eloquent than ever, and it seems like that gets better over time. And so that makes me want you to do this forever….you’re really good at talking when you need to talk and saying things that need to be said.”

Ms. Rapinoe, who fashions herself a “walking protest,” previously said in an interview that she would be protesting the national anthem as an “F you” to President Donald Trump and scoffed at a potential invite to the White House, telling a reporter that there is no “f***ing way” she’d be going.

“Public Policy Polling literally did a poll today. Which was you versus Trump in a presidential contest and you beat him by a point,” Maddow told the athlete, joking that she doesn’t think Rapinoe is “going to announce” a presidential run.

Rapinoe said she’s not going to run for the Oval Office and added, “My girlfriend actually just said, she’s like, you need to be careful. They’re gonna ask you to run for president. You need to slow your roll.”

“I’m not asking you to run, just suggesting that others are polling on it,” Maddow responded, giving off a laugh.

Rapinoe did tell Maddow, however, that she’s “ready” for the “next thing,” in terms of her activism.

“I’m excited to kind of dig in and see really where I can take this,” she said. “I think that I’ve been kind of wanting that for a number of years and how do we – how do we bring it out of just sports and out of soccer and out of the things that we’ve been doing and that I’ve been doing into something way bigger?…I kind of want to stop just talking about things and, like, how do we put things in action? How do we help? What do we do? What’s the best way to get people mobilized, whether that’s in voting or just getting people more educated and more plugged in to what’s happening, you know, in our politics and in our lives? And I think I’m ready for that, like, next thing. I want to be more impactful.”

“I think the country is ready for you,” Maddow praised.

As reported by The Daily Wire earlier this week, in this same interview, Rapinoe acknowledged to Maddow that closing the so-called “gender wage gap” between men and women’s soccer would entail generating more money for the women’s team, what conservative critics have argued all along.

    Yeah, PRESIDENT OF THE GAY PARADE!

  • Ulla Camp says:

    If you have thoughts about that, I suggest that you put them on a shelf, since I do NOT forsee you getting too many votes with your performances lately…
    Sure you were involved with winning the soccer tournament, but you KNOW absolutely NOTHING about world politics and your filthy mouth would get you in trouble all the time……….
    Besides that we have had one freak in the office, and do NOT need another one….
    So please tell your little “girl-friend” that is a NO go………….

  • Mary says:

    They are idiots, both of them!
    They hate the country so why not pick another where they might be happy?

  • JerryV says:

    Great. Just what we need. A gay AOC.

  • Gayle says:

    This think herself, filthy loud mouth, attention seeking, soccer player really thinks she could be president! She just ticked off over half of this country with her ugly, ungrateful, disrespectful, actions! Maybe she should move to another country where they would shut her up!

  • Angela says:

    Get over yourself butt head

  • Angela says:

    As if

  • Georgia says:

    When woman’s soccer makes as much money as men’s soccer then equal pay is appropriate. Until then consider yourself lucky to play a game and get paid. You’re a paid employee who should remember that. If you don’t like what you’re doing, stop doing it. Get a real job and see how that works out.

  • JOYCE WOKICH says:

    Yah, we need another big mouth AOC running the show like we need a hole in the head. She also thinks way too highly of herself! People who are all wrapped up in themself makes a very small package~!!

  • Sharon Barton says:

    You’re such a defect! Do you really think America wants a gay person running our country??? Imagine all the perverted things that would be smeared all over our beautiful nation. EWWW!!! I shutter to think!

  • TerryM says:

    A perverse person in so many ways.

  • William conley says:

    For starters a homosexual isn’t getting elected not in this lifetime at least far too many Bible belters still around for that to ever happen they would lose a dozen States hands down wouldn’t even be close. Now not even mentioning the gayness she said she doesn’t respect our flag or anthem and she’s a foul mouthed moron who is a blatant egomaniac. In regards to soccer when your shitty little sport even compared to a college football team in regards to the money or generates you’d get paid more but nobody gives a shit about soccer in the USA let alone women’s soccer which will just be a bunch of trans dudes in another twenty years or less. So you better enjoy living a lavish lifestyle playing an unpopular hobby for children that became a profession while you still can little miss pay attention to me I dye my hair hate trump and I’m gay as can be.

  • Janet says:

    Wow! And people thought Obama was a narcissist. I find this woman so irritating and obnoxious! What now she thinks she could be President because she won a soccer title? Heck half of the country doesn’t have soccer on their list of sports to watch let alone women’s soccer. She needs to be taken down a peg. Obviously she’s a legend in her own mind. And if she starts endorsing products Thani will be sure NEVER to buy any of them. She is nothing more than a foul mouth, American hating liberal loon! And we all know we have enough of them already running for President. So no sweetheart, you are not going to be the President. Not now, not ever! So you can take that to the bank with your big fat check that you feel isn’t enough!

  • Bill says:

    no wonder she likes you … she’s a moron to…

  • Keith says:

    Hell NO. I would not want you to clean my toilet,Your Opinions do not Help America. You are a POS>>>>>>>>> President of WHAT???? You are a TURD

  • Rockne Hughes says:

    Maddow is so lacking in her education of politics that it is a wonder that anyone still listens to her. Remember that she preached “collusion” in the election for three years and still won’t quit after the Mueller report. A guess will be that Rapinoe will fade into the woodwork after this soccer event moves to the back pages.

  • Nancy West says:

    this woman gives any gay woman a bad name. she also is stealing her teammates accomplishments from them as if she is God’s gift to the Women’s soccer league. She is nothing but a self-important brat.Let her have her 15 minutes of fame, she will fall hard off that pedestal.

  • Sarge says:

    The common thread amongst tyrants is the ego!

  • Evangeline says:

    She’s got an ego the size of Gibraltar! I’d like to know when these traitors that show such disrespect to our POTUS and our country all of a sudden became heroes for it. It’s everywhere now. Celebs saying “F” Trump, athletes refusing to say the pledge, people tearing down peoples flags from their lawns and becoming violent over someone supporting our president and our country. It’s insane! Democrats have turned into enemies of our country and supporters of the ones who want to conquer us.

  • Gayle says:

    You better enjoy your 15 minutes of fame, they are almost over! There is a lot more to runnin a country than kicking a ball. When the transgender a take over women soccer, you will be out of a job and you will have to get a real job!

  • Dave says:

    Calm your fat little ego down, Christopher!

  • RO says:

    Now that is funny shit she is scum

  • jane berry says:

    So sad you highjacked the US TEAMS accomplishment. You have done so much DAMAGE to women’s soccer.
    You have lost me and mine for sure. Very sad.
