Megan Rapinoe is once again the gal everybody’s talking about right now, and not just because of his outstanding performances with the USWNT in this World Cup.
The often-controversial Rapinoe has made a name for herself for standing up for her beliefs, even being one of the first white athletes to kneel during the national anthem back in 2016 to support Colin Kaepernick’s cause.
Obviously, that has put her on a rather uncomfortable position at the eyes of a portion of the American population, with her and Donald Trump entertaining in a bit of debate during their latest statements, sort of say.
Her, being as sharp, smart and sarcastic as she is, tried not to give him a lot of attention during to their personal feud with the President after claiming she wasn’t going to the “fuc#ing White House,” but still ended up roasting Trump anyways:
“I expect him to have a lot better things to do before that got on the to-do list. “I’m sure he skipped over a number of things,” Rapinoe claimed about Trump’s controversial tweets.
Moreover, Rapinoe went on to clarify why she’s taking the time and risk to take a stand on such a polarizing matter, and his answer was as heartfelt as convincing:
“I think that I am particularly and uniquely and very deeply American. If we want to talk about the ideals that we stand for and the songs and the anthem and sort of what we were founded on, I think I’m extremely American. I feel very fortunate to be in this country, I’d never been able to do this in a lot of other places but also, that doesn’t mean that we can’t get better, that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t always strive to be better. I think that this country was founded on a lot of great ideas but it was also founded on slavery, and I think we just need to be really honest about that and be really open in talking about that so we can reconcile that and hopefully move forward and make this country better for everyone,” Rapinoe concluded.
