Earlier this week, the US women’s national soccer team took home a bronze medal after taking down Australia.
Following the disappointing result from the USWNT, former President Donald Trump was left absolutely fuming. In a statement released following the USWNT’s bronze medal win over Australia, Trump railed against the team.
“If our soccer team, headed by a radical group of Leftist Maniacs, wasn’t woke, they would have won the Gold Medal instead of the Bronze,” Trump said. “Woke means you lose, everything that is woke goes bad, and our soccer team certainly has. They should replace the wokesters with Patriots and start winning again. The woman with the purple hair (World Cup MVP Megan Rapinoe) played terribly and spends too much time thinking about Radical Left politics and not doing her job!”
Well, it didn’t take long for those comments to make their way to one of the specific people Trump mentioned: Megan Rapinoe.
Here’s what she said to Trump after the team’s win over Australia, via NBC:
“It’s a real sad dig into an old bag,” Rapinoe told reporter Jack Doles. “I’m just like, ‘You’re rooting for people to do bad?’ Yikes.”
Rapinoe herself had an incredible final game at the Olympics, scoring the United States’ first two goals in a 4-3 win over Australia for bronze.
She recorded an “Olimpico” which is a goal that is scored directly from a corner kick.
We likely haven’t seen the last of Trump’s feud with the USWNT.
