Following their victory in the final match of the 2019 World Cup tournament, the women of the United States national team reverted to form and showed their true colors as ungrateful, unpatriotic, unAmerican brats who have no business representing the rest of us.
Megan Rapinoe, the captain who was benched for the semi-final against France, and who did stand for the national anthem even if she did not put her hand over her heart as all Americans are supposed to, was seen disrespecting the flag after the game along with another player. The flag ended up on the pitch and had to be rescued.

What a pathetic display from women – and that word is used anatomically only – who are desperate for attention, and a different face in the White House despite most of the rest of the nation not having a problem with the current president. Due to the protests on the world stage, Rapinoe gained a following not necessarily of soccer fans, but people who agree with her politics. The group even started going on and on about equal pay for the women despite the fact that they make a greater percentage of money from revenue than the men’s team.
As for President and Mrs. Trump, the protestees as it were, they took the high ground and tweeted out congratulations to the ungrateful women.
Congratulations to the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team on winning the World Cup! Great and exciting play. America is proud of you all!

At this time, there are no clear plans to invite the women’s soccer team to the White House. Several members of the squad, including Rapinoe, claim that they would not attend. They will, however, get a ticker tape parade down Wall Street courtesy of New York mayor Bill DeBlasio despite the trading floor not using ticker tape any longer.
In the meantime, a number of veterans on the national team are due to retire after this year’s tournament. With all luck, Megan Rapinoe will be one of them.
