The U.S. women’s soccer team has gained a lot of attention over the past two weeks. Unfortunately, for female American athletes, it’s gotten the wrong kind of attention. When Megan Rapinoe, the captain of the U.S. women’s announced prematurely that she’d reject the offer of President Trump to visit the White House, telling reporters, “I’m not going to the f**king White House,” it became front-page news in every Trump-hating news publication and the top story on many of the failing cable networks.
Sadly, instead of tuning in to take pride in the U.S. women’s exceptional soccer playing skills, many women, like myself, had no interest in watching them, as they turned what should have been a moment of pride for all Americans, into another athlete who stole the attention from her teammates because she just can’t seem to find a cure for her Trump Derangement Syndrome.
It didn’t stop with Megan Rapinoe’s hatred for President Trump, the radical leftist team captain also showed her stellar leadership qualities when she refused to kneel for the national anthem that represents the country she plays for.
The Gateway Pundit has been reporting on the selfish behavior of the US women’s soccer captain – Rapinoe started kneeling during the national anthem back in 2016. She said it was a protest against “white supremacy” and in support of black lives matter movement. She later said it was a protest against the treatment of gays in the US.
But recently she said her protesting during the anthem is her f*** you to Trump and all of his racism.
Last Tuesday President Trump ripped the far-left activist for trashing her country, “You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there, maybe they shouldn’t be in the country.”
Today, the fans of the women’s U.S. soccer team took a page out of the feminazi captain’s playbook, and instead of enjoying the women’s U.S. soccer team won the World Cup, they opted to cheer for equal pay for the female athletes.
Well done, liberal America. Way to show your pride for the American team who just won the Women’s World Cup!
The Hill reports – Chants of “equal pay” reverberated from the bleachers of the Stade de Lyon in France on Sunday following the U.S. women’s national team’s 2-0 victory over the Netherlands to win the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Videos posted on social media showed different sections of fans repeatedly and loudly chanting “equal pay,” a reference to the disparity between the income of the U.S. women’s and men’s national teams.

As a mother of three female athletes, I understand their frustration when it comes to being paid at the same level as the men’s teams, the problem is, it’s a numbers game—when an equal number of fans start buying tickets to women’s games, they’ll start being paid equally, until then, we’re back to the forced minimum wage argument…
What do you think? Should these women athletes be paid the same as their male counterparts, when they don’t draw the same number of ticket-purchasing fans to the stadiums? Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
