Megan Rapinoe, The United States Women’s National Team star who has become a woke activist in recent years, might be enduring the worst month of her life. After missing a penalty in a win or go home situation in the Women’s World Cup, Rapinoe is now being slaughtered by media pundits who are furious at her lack of national pride and poor play on the world stage.
Rapinoe spoke to The Atlantic to play the victim and pretend that all of the criticism she has received is unfair. The criticism came from high profile members of the media and government, ranging from Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly to former teammate of Rapinoe, Carli Lloyd.
Rapinoe said, “It always is, because what he’s saying is fake. It’s a compilation of hit words and hot-button words that don’t actually make any sort of sense or square with reality at all… I think, just in general, the way that our team was spoken about over the course of the tournament, it was fake.”
She continued, “And it didn’t make sense to me: In 2019, we were ultra-confident, ultra-swaggy – and won everything. And even though we won, we did it in bad taste, according to our critics. This time, we weren’t confident enough, and we don’t have the right “mentality.” And so we lost. It’s just so disingenuous. There’s no way for us to win, and there’s no way for us to lose.”
Of course, Rapinoe couldn’t last the entire interview without bringing politics and feminism into the mix. Was she being basked for poor play? No, Rapinoe wanted the audience to know, she was really receiving flak because conservatives couldn’t stand to see a woman succeed. She said, “They want women to believe that you can’t fight for things and be excellent; you can’t ask for what you deserve and be successful.”
Ben Shapiro gave the best possible explanation about why fans, politicians, and media members alike all cheered at the demise of Megan Rapinoe. “The part about Megan Rapinoe that is annoying is that she’s Megan Rapinoe,” Shapiro said.
Donald Trump also took a second to hop on Truth Social and bash Rapinoe after her horrific play. “The “shocking and totally unexpected” loss by the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team to Sweden is fully emblematic of what is happening to the our once great Nation under Crooked Joe Biden. Many of our players were openly hostile to America – No other country behaved in such a manner, or even close. WOKE EQUALS FAILURE. Nice shot Megan, the USA is going to Hell!”
Rapinoe has run the gamut throughout her career, beginning as a beloved American soccer star to becoming the face of multiple woke brands who yearned for a pink haired activist to be the head ambassador to their brand. Now, it may very well be the case that Rapinoe has no option but to ride off into the sunset, never to be heard from on a national scale ever again.
