Megan Rapinoe Wants To Be President – But, Didn’t She Protest The National Anthem?
In a VICE TV interview, US Women's soccer star Megan Rapinoe said that a future run for President isn't off the table then took a swipe at Donald Trump.
Megan Rapinoe has a reputation for taking a stand against the National Anthem. Now, the ultra-feminist US Women’s soccer player is considering running for President. And of course, she took a stab at President Trump when she made the comment by calling him a “white nationalist.”
National Anthem During The World Cup
Megan Rapinoe, the controversial star of the US Women’s National Team, doesn’t have a reputation of being a patriotic American. She’s been hostile towards displays of American exceptionalism and pride.
Last summer, when playing in the World Cup, Rapinoe protested during the National Anthem as people around the globe watched.
She also said that she would not attend a reception at the White House after the US Women’s Soccer team took the top prize.
Now, even though she kneels or turns her back during the National Anthem, Rapinoe expressed aspirations to live in the White House.
Soccer star Megan Rapinoe is a national disgrace just like Kaepernick! She’s supposed to be representing the United States but instead, she disrespectfully kneels during our great National Anthem. Unbelievable! @mPinoe #MeganRapinoe #USA🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/AITMmMBxbC

Rapinoe Says Trump Is A White Nationalist
“We have a white nationalist — I think — in the White House,” Rapinoe told VICE TV’s Anand Giridharadas.
“And, the spewing of hate and the other’ing of the rest of the country has only led to more rife between people and more despair and more anxiety and more fear going forward.”
