When asked in an interview if she was interested in going to the White House, Megan Rapinoe was very emphatic in her negative response.

This caused Trump to pick another fight:

“We haven’t yet invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the TEAM, win or lose. Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team. Be proud of the Flag that you wear,” he wrote.

Ms Rapinoe is a more welcome “ambassador” of the United States throughout the world that Donald Trump. She plays at the top level of the most popular sport in the world – “the beautiful game.”

Unlike Trump, Ms Rapinoe has never called the White House “a dump”. It is the current Resident she disapproves of.

Ms Rapinoe doesn’t wear a flag because USWNT is aware of the law – 4 USC 8j: “No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform.” Oh, she also doesn’t use the flag for a pole dance as Trump has done multiple times.

Someone should inform the current Resident what Ms Rapinoe and her team do – they kick balls! They are very good at kicking balls. They kick balls with their insteps and occasionally their heels. They kick balls with power and with accuracy. I would be reluctant to annoy anyone who was as good as Ms Rapinoe at kicking balls. 😈

World Cup Qtr Finals – Day 2

France 1 – 2 US

Les Bleues controlled the ball 60% of the time and looked great, but they couldn’t get the ball in the goal. The US had speed, reaction, and Megan Rapinoe. The US shifted to a five women defense at the end to maintain their lead and it worked.

This is the eighth consecutive Women’s World Cup in which the US reached the semi-finals.

Update: BBC Sports selected Crystal Dunn, US fullback, ‘Player of the match’ for shutting down the French offense.
