Daily Wire – The co-captain of the United States Women’s national soccer team, Megan Rapinoe, told Yahoo Sports, “I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart. I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again,” boasting that she is “a walking protest when it comes to the Trump administration,” because of “everything I stand for.” She added, “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. 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.”
Yup, protesting the national anthem will sure do it! Trump Derangement Syndrome is a real problem y’all.
Rapinoe is the first openly gay woman in soccer, and told The Guardian once that “maybe men should just take a few hundred years off”.
