U.S. women’s soccer star and attention-seeking anthem protester Megan Rapinoe definitively announced she is “not going to the f***ing White House” if her team wins the World Cup.
She’s certainly a classy lady.
Rapinoe made the comments during an interview with Eight By Eight Magazine on Tuesday when queried as to whether or not she’d be “excited” about going to the White House if the American team brings home the Cup.
“I’m not going to the f***ing White House,” she responded. “No. I’m not going to the White House. We’re not going to be invited … I doubt it.”

President Trump has been known to rescind offers to honor sports champions at the White House if they repeatedly disrespect the office. The Philadelphia Eagles were once on the receiving end of that message.
The USA will play France in a quarterfinal game on Friday.
Rapinoe previously dropped f-bombs when discussing her protest of the national anthem, something she has described as “a little nod” to Colin Kaepernick.
“It’s kind of a good ‘F you’ to any sort of inequality or bad sentiments that the [Trump] administration might have towards people who don’t look exactly like him,” she claimed, a sentiment that doesn’t exist.
“Which, God help us if we all looked like him. Scary. Really scary. Ahh, disturbing,” she added.
Multiple studies have concluded that racism under President Trump has improved, other polls show Americans vastly supporting him on illegal immigration, and he recently celebrated ‘pride month’ by asking Americans to “recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation.”
So, we’re not quite sure what Rapinoe is referring to when she whines about bad sentiments toward people who don’t look like him.
As for the national anthem, Rapinoe has said, “I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart. I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again.”
The President was asked about Rapinoe’s disrespect toward her own country and whether or not it is appropriate to kneel during the national anthem during an interview on Monday.
“No. I don’t think so,” he responded.
He then complimented the women’s team and the sport in general saying, “I love watching women’s soccer. They’re really talented.”
Trump has been respectful of Rapinoe where she has refused to do so, though previous comments about athletes kneeling for the anthem have been rather fiery.
“You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there,” he said in May of last year. “Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.”
You certainly shouldn’t be the captain of an American sports team while spitting on the country that gave you that opportunity and spotlight. Rapinoe is a disgrace.
