Another day, another pro athlete throwing an anti-American temper tantrum because they can’t deal with the results of a legitimate election.
President Trump is definitely no fan when it comes to leftist athletes who use their stardom to engage in disrespectful gestures to America and he has harsh words for the Megan Rapinoe who has chosen to make her political statement overseas.
As the co-captain of the U.S. women’s soccer team that is currently competing in the Women’s World Cup in France, Rapinoe who is an activist for multiple LGBT organizations is taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem in a selfish display of hogging the spotlight away from her team members who just want to play soccer and avoid the silly temper tantrums.
But to Rapinoe who is the very definition of a prima donna, she has proclaimed herself as a “walking protest” to Trump and his policies and has taken her snit across the pond where it no doubt thrills the Euros but is gauche and unseemly and dishonors that very uniform that she wears as a representative of her home country.
During his latest series of interviews with mainstream media outlets, the leader of the free world blasted Rapinoe’s taking a knee as inappropriate when the baited question was posed to him.

President Trump on Monday said he does not think it’s appropriate for Megan Rapinoe, a co-captain of the U.S. women’s soccer team, to protest during the national anthem.
“No. I don’t think so,” Trump said in an exclusive interview with The Hill when asked about Rapinoe’s actions.
Rapinoe has previously knelt during “The Star-Spangled Banner.” During this year’s Women’s World Cup, she has abstained from singing along during pregame ceremonies. Rapinoe, who is gay, has referred to herself as a “walking protest.”
Trump, who has suggested NFL players who protest during the anthem shouldn’t be in the country, disagreed with Rapinoe’s actions but offered praise for the women’s national team.
“I love watching women’s soccer,” he said in the Oval Office. “They’re really talented.”
Trump latest condemnation of a pro athlete dissing the flag and those who paid the ultimate price for it – many of whom died to free France from the Nazis – will trigger much weeping and gnashing of teeth with the wokester mob on Twitter but he has been consistent to a fault when it comes to such petulant displays.
The POTUS regularly called out former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his legions of disciples for their antics on the sidelines during games and in doing so, gave voice to millions of patriotic Americans to whom the flag still means something that hasn’t been terribly distorted by the social justice whiners.
There will be cries of misogyny and homophobia but Trump has previously voiced his disgust with pampered narcissistic athletes who chose to act out in another country including Oakland Raiders surly running back Marshawn Lynch who sat on his ass for the Star-Spangled Banner during a 2017 game in Mexico City but stood for the Mexican national anthem.
Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.

And Rapinoe made it clear that she is not going to the FUCKING White House either:

It is truly unfortunate that those who have been blessed by all that this great country has to offer see the flag as a symbol of hate and oppression but Megan Rapinoe’s chip on her shoulder over perceived injustice to her sexuality is a selfish distraction that shows no respect to her teammates whose dreams of winning the cup for their country will be somewhat spoiled by the sourball in their midst who unfairly will command all of the media attention.
