This is a woman who, after her last win, told reporters, “You can’t win a championship without gays on your team. That’s science, right there.” Going into the Fourth of July, she is our new American hero.
i have never been more conflicted about a sporting event than this women’s world cup Pros: Amazing athletes Team USA Winning Megan Rapinoe Piers Morgan mad Donald Trump mad Cons: I hate soccer — An Angry Librarian (@Halpern Alex) July 2, 2019 So yes, Bird does write about Trump.
After Trump attacked Rapinoe on Twitter over an interview in which she said she wouldn't go to the White House, Bird stepped into to clap back.
Bird's post addressed a lot of different issues, including how proud she was of her girlfriend and the USWNT, the things she didn't understand about soccer, and how she's invented something called "Megan Goggles" to help her see the world from Rapinoe's perspective.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you're probably well aware of how hard the U. Women's National Soccer Team (USWNT) has been killing it in the World Cup.
Not only has the USWNT team already scored several goals, but as of July 2, it is the first-ever team to reach the finals for the third time in a row.
In an essay published on The Player's Tribune epic enough to rival Megan Rapinoe's girlfriend called out Donald Trump for targeting Rapinoe, and you honestly have to drop everything and read it.
Bird's piece in the Player's Tribune, called "So the President F*cking Hates My Girlfriend," referenced some drama surrounding Rapinoe and POTUS.
Bird’s love letter to Rapinoe reminds me a lot of that. Rapinoe didn’t play in today’s match against England (a hamstring injury kept her benched, though the US team still won!
She apologizes to “everyone who was on the plane with me last week, and had to watch me fistpump like a bozo after each of Megan’s goals.” “It won’t happen again except let me be clear it might,” she says. ), and it would be great to live in a country where we weren’t waiting for the president to tweet something mocking her for that, or to push a theory that seems to be going around amongst his fans that this was punishment for her kneeling protests (which, again, she’s been doing for multiple years).
