Colin Kaepernick has a soul mate in Megan Rapinoe. The two of them could be a pair. Rapinoe announced to the whole world that she would not be singing the national anthem at the games in protest of Donald Trump
Soccer star Megan Rapinoe has vowed to continue her national anthem protests while representing the US in next month’s Women’s World Cup — calling it a “good ‘F you’” to the Trump administration.
“I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart,” the 33-year-old national co-captain told Yahoo sports.“I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again.”
Rapinoe, who already sparked outrage by taking a knee during the anthem, does not hide her desire to shock while wearing the US team jersey during the tournament in France, starting in June.
“I feel like I’m a walking protest,” she told the site.
“I feel like it’s kind of defiance in and of itself to just be who I am and wear the jersey, and represent it.
Then here it comes
“Because I’m as talented as I am, I get to be here, you don’t get to tell me if I can be here or not.
I don’t recall Trump telling her whether she could be in the games or not.
“So 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.
“Which, God help us if we all looked like him. Scary. Really scary. Ahh, disturbing.”
She does kind of look like him. Anyway, Rapinoe told the whole world that she would not go to the White House if invited:

So you protest a president by dishonoring yourself and the entire nation? Statists hate America: Megan Rapinoe: My national anthem protests are an 'F you' to Trump administration https://t.co/RB6rIDOulR

As does Kaepernick, she hates this country. As did Kaepernick, she brought herself right down to the low rent district she accused Trump of being. In so doing, wrecked the World Cup for a lot of people who didn’t deserve to see her trash her flag and her country.
One more time- let’s recall what she said:
Because I’m as talented as I am, I get to be here, you don’t get to tell me if I can be here or not. So 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. Which, God help us if we all looked like him. Scary. Really scary. Ahh, disturbing.”
For the record, Trump appointed the first black woman to be a Marine Brigadier General. He also appointed a lesbian activist for a Federal anti-discrimination job and an openly gay man as Ambassador to Germany. Thus on top of it all, Rapinoe is either ignorant or just full of crap.
This was always all about Rapinoe. Not Trump. Not anything else. I hope the whole world recognizes it.
