Megan Rapinoe on USWNT's possible White House visit: 'I'm not going to the f---ing White House'

Megan Rapinoe on USWNT's possible White House visit: 'I'm not going to the f---ing White House'










If, for some reason, you thought USWNT star Megan Rapinoe might have changed her mind about visiting the White House if the United States women’s national team wins the Women’s World Cup, then wonder no more.

The USWNT co-captain provided another straight answer.

“I’m not going to the f---ing White House,” Rapinoe said. “No, I’m not going to the White House. We’re not going to be invited. I doubt it.”

Rapinoe had been asked by Eight by Eight magazine if she was looking forward to making the trip, which was met with an audible scoff.

That emphatic answer backs up what Rapinoe said before the tournament, that she would “absolutely not” attend a White House celebration in the event of a World Cup win. Fellow USWNT star Alex Morgan also said she would not attend.


Rapinoe, who drew a public condemnation from President Donald Trump for not putting her hand on her heart during the national anthem before a game, has made no attempt to hide her scorn for the Trump administration.

From an interview with Yahoo Sports earlier this month:

She is at ease, however, in her role as USWNT co-captain. She is "a walking protest when it comes to the Trump administration," she says, because of "everything I stand for."

"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," she continues. "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."

As Rapinoe mentions in her more recent quote, the USWNT probably shouldn’t even be expecting an invitation from Trump if it wins the tournament given his past history with not inviting any champion he thinks will reject him.

No NBA or WNBA champion has visited the White House during the Trump administration, and the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles also had their invitation rescinded after it became clear most of the team’s players would be skipping the event. This year’s NBA champion Toronto Raptors seem set to continue the trend.

USWNT defender Ali Krieger issued a strong rebuke to President Donald Trump after he tweeted about teammate Megan Rapinoe on Wednesday.

"In regards to the 'President's' tweet today, I know women who you cannot control or grope anger you, but I stand by (Rapinoe) & will sit this one out as well," Krieger wrote.

"I don't support this administration nor their fight against LGBTQ+ citizens, immigrants & our most vulnerable."

On Wednesday morning, Trump sent several critical tweets about Rapinoe, who had previously said she wouldn't visit the White House if the U.S. won the World Cup. Trump wrote, in part: "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."

Trump added that while he hadn't officially invited the team to the White House, he was extending that invitation Wednesday: "I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job! We haven’t yet invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the TEAM, win or lose.

Unlike you I would say the same about any president, no matter their political affiliation.

I am sure it was all on the tax payer's dime as well for Obama. Whereas Trump paid for his.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/2019/01/14/clemson-white-house-donald-trump-hosts-national-football-champions/2568501002/

In the midst of the longest partial government shutdown in U.S. history, Trump welcomed coach Dabo Swinney, quarterback Trevor Lawrence and 75 other players with stacks of burgers from McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's, among other assorted fast food.

Press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement that Trump covered the cost of the food because "the Democrats refuse to negotiate on border security" and "much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed."

"I had a choice," Trump said. "Do we have no food for you? ... Or do we give you some little quick salads that the First Lady will make, along with the Second Lady — they'll make some salads.

"(No), I said, you guys aren't into salads."

Though the White House did not initially detail the amount of fast food and its costs, Trump said he ordered "about 1,000 hamburgers" for the group. He believed the football players would enjoy the meal because they have some "very large people that like eating."

I wish all athletes would boycott going to the WH whenever invited. No matter who is in charge. Consider it a break for the US tax payer.

yes Sean,

and now for some common sense from your article

Of course, this match against the academy team was very informal and should not be a major cause for alarm. The U.S. surely wasn’t going all out, with the main goal being to get some minutes on the pitch, build chemistry when it comes to moving the ball around, improve defensive shape and get ready for Russia.

The game will, however, serve as a great anecdote for the kids on the FC Dallas squad to tell their grandchildren about one day. It also speaks highly of the level of academy development MLS teams are doing these days.   

Pro teams do not risk injury by going "all out" in scrimmages, regardless of the sport.

A U14 boys academy team could beat any women's team at the world cup.

That depends very much on the academy in question.  A national powerhouse club, probably so.  A local club playing 3rd division, certainly not.

I'm not sexist I also coached my daughter when she played and enjoyed it that being said women play the game at a much lower level than men.

This is because people are emotional and stupid.  The best American athletes don't play soccer.  The best athletes in most other countries do.  You can't coach a sow's ear to become a silk purse.

If you've been involved with US Soccer at almost any level I don't need to explain that the next biggest problem is politics, power struggles and petty dickheads fighting over their own little fiefdoms.  

Others suggest that it's cultural, we just aren't interested in running 7 to 10 miles a game for low pay and no fame when we have football, baseball and basketball. 

It's not the running, it's the fame.  People like the attention they get being good at something people love to watch.

In a competitive match, surely.  In a friendly.....meh.  The scoreline in such a contest isn't really of any value.

The better point is that they chose a U15 team.  FC Dallas has hundreds of academy teams, going up to U19.  Why choose the 14 year olds?

Going "all out" shouldn't be necessary for a professional team to beat a team going through puberty.

Almost every boy on that team will be bigger, faster, stronger, and more agile than the women.  Probably MUCH more so.  If everybody played at full competitive intensity, you'd run out of stretchers taking women off with broken legs, destroyed knees, and facial injuries from contested headers.

All of which just serves to reinforce the points about the difference in level between the men's and women's game.

It's not my cup of tea, but I support people who represent my country.  I'm happy for them, but I'm not likely to attend a game and probably won't watch unless they make the final.  That probably reflects the sentiments of most Americans, I think.

Mine gave it up to be a quarterback.  It's Texas, after all.  He was 6'2" by age 14 and ran a 4.4 by 16.  Later gave that up to play baseball in college.

I enjoyed the soccer, though.

Seems a little early to be contemplating this. They haven't won the thing yet.

If they are invited, I think they should all go, but I say that for every team. You don't have to agree with the president or even like him, but it's not about him. It's about the athletes being honored where all of America will see. It promotes the sport and the players. This is particularly true with anything that isn't one of the major professional sports. 

For years afterward, these athletes will do clinics and give speeches promoting the sport and getting kids (in this case, young girls) excited about playing the sport and where it could take them. They'll be able to flash pictures of their team being honored at the White House. The kids won't give a shit about the politics of who the president was. They'll just be pumped that they could maybe a small part of something that exciting.

Or you could pissy and selfish and blow it off. You know, it's a free country and all.

He knows he is mentally and physically at the end of the pack (if his daddy wasn't rich he would be an incel and he already kind of is).

Go to the WH.  Get on camera.  Ask the president for a commitment to protect the rights of gay people.  Then every time he doesn't do that, remind all of Twitter about his promise.

If he won't promise, announce to all of Twitter that he refused.

If they win, she'll still be one of 23 people on the roster (assuming the women's WC is the same as the men's).

She plays a sport that most Americans care very little about, and she plays it in the women's division, which most Americans also don't care about.  

She's also going to join a looooong line of people boycotting WH visits, and most of those people are much better known and more followed than she is.

She's not pouting

If she's not pouting, what would you call it?  Serious question, because all I see is immaturity flushing a golden opportunity down the toilet.

"I'm not going to the fucking WH" is the language of a petulant teenager.  Refusing to go because you don't like the people you'll meet there is like avoiding a HS party because the cool kids aren't going to be there.  Seriously?  She needs to grow up.

If there is really some cause here and Donald Trump is that big a villain, go confront him in his own lair.  Grow a spine, act like a full-fledged grown up and use some of the influence celebrity provides.

If she refuses to go, all she becomes is a Kaepernick wannabe.  A completely unoriginal follower of another petulant, immature athlete....which is really stupid because he flushed the biggest opportunity in American history.

Depends on what she's saying "fuck that" to, but pretty much since always.

This is something that she would be honored to do under almost any other circumstances.  It's also something the rest of the country would love to see.  Any time a national team wins it's special, because we're ALL cheering for them, not just the hometown fans.

So she's passing on this activity that is considered an honor because Trump says mean things.  Sorry...that's just pouting.  She may as well be in junior high school argument where she says "tell Donald I'm not talking to him".

What they have been doing is incredible and a testimony to the skill and dedication and hard work they have put in to form this team. And IMO they should accept the invitation. This would be a time to honor all that they have done in front of the nation that they represent. This should be a time to respect what this team has done and to respect the office of the presidency.

I am perfectly capable of supporting the USWNT and shitting on Trump at the same time. The two are not mutually exclusive and frankly he has made it hard to respect the office of the presidency anymore at this point. I mean, really, if a guy like him can be president then is it really worth respecting? 

If a serial liar, con man, epic business failure, and likely rapist can be the president then why even pretend the office is deserving of respect? My respect for the office disappeared with the election of the current fat ass in chief.

This President is the divider-in-chief and has only further driven a wedge between sane Americans and the rabid right minority which encompasses his base.

Don't forget the rabid left minority, who have lost all pretense of sanity and pretend it's justified because of something they saw on Twitter.  Seriously, these people are turning "winning the World Cup" into a divisive issue.  That's some serious, professional level batshit insanity.

That's why any American with even a smidgen of self respect is declining any invite to this joke of an administration.

Or....in the "put your feelings back in your pocket, act like a fuckin' grown up and get something accomplished" world....they could go to the WH and ask POTUS on camera for his commitment to support the rights of women/lesbians/goalies/gingers/whatevergrouptheywant and then hold that over his head for as long as he's in office.  "Mr. President...you promised..."

Meetings are more effective than protests, and a protest without a stated, measurable objective is a "tantrum".  If Colin Kaepernick had just picked up the phone, we'd all be talking about a reduction in police violence by now.

Well that's certainly not the world Donald Trump or his supporters live in. This incompetent man-baby and his enablers are the epitome of childish schoolyard bully's which is why its so important not to give in to their petty demands. We have a huge problem with fucking stupid poorly educated morons who imagine themselves smart just like their half-wit dear Leader Donald who couldn't think himself out of a wet paper bag. The only accomplishment this President has achieved so far is to make us a laughing stock around the world.

Amen!  It would be funny if it was so tragic and devastating to the country.

So why the hysteria surrounding him, then?  Serious question.  If all he does is talk and tweet, why does everybody go so crazy?

Meh.  We could say the same thing about Bernie Sanders.

Again...we could say that about Bernie.

We got tax reform.  Part of which we needed, part of which we didn't.  Frankly, I don't care what people in other countries think of us.  They have their own issues, just like we have ours.

On some things, absolutely. On others, meh.  On still some others, nah, I kinda agree.  I can give you examples of each if you care.

Personally, I can't stand him.  I just don't get hysterical about it.
