She's mad at Trump and therefore refuses to honor her country? That makes no sense. It's the National Anthem, not the Trump Anthem.

Be a shame if she were to fall in to a wood chipper.

I mean, those things are not easy to clean.

There's the bigger problem. Why people get riches and fame for playing schoolyard games is stupid.

i agree with you.
takes some special mental gymnastics, and self serving interests, to hate your
country over who is in the white house.

i did not like obama but i sure didn't change the way i feel about a country like ours.
one that was created for the people.

seriously. lefties are ignorant of that fact.
the country is the constitution.
yes, there have been some son of b in power and done some shameful things but that is not any knock on the country as a whole.

Her "**** you" to our president won't accomplish JACH ****, except make her look like an unpatriotic BITCH.

Trump will continue to do and say as he sees fit, based on his policies, even after her little temper tantrum on the podium.

This vindictive little bitch did alienate half of America, so how about a big "**** you" to HER.

I hope she ruptures her Achilles.

She probably doesn't even know why she hates Trump. The media and her left leaning friends have successfully brainwashed her. The democrats are probably applauding her tasteless move showing the propaganda is working on the weak minded.

U.S. women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe ignored the national anthem before the Women’s World Cup game against Thailand on Tuesday.

Rapinoe, who is openly gay, had previously said she would never sing the national anthem again as an ‘f-you’ to President Donald Trump. She announced that she would “never put my hand over my heart” or sing the national anthem in an interview with Yahoo News in May.

“I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart,” Rapinoe said in May. “I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again.”

She was seen standing silently without her hand over her heart when the national anthem played on Tuesday while her teammates sang and placed their hands over their hearts, The Blaze reported. Many people took to social media in response showing both their support and disagreement with her decision.

“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,” she told Yahoo News. “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.”

Rapinoe became the first white athlete to kneel during the national anthem in 2016, supporting former professional football player Colin Kaepernick. The former NFL quarterback made headlines when he knelt during the anthem before a game three years ago. Kaepernick has said that kneeling during the national anthem was a way to protest against police brutality and racism.

After Rapinoe knelt, U.S. soccer gave a statement and adopted a rule that requires players to “stand and honor the flag.” Rapinoe has said that she was not happy with this decision and with the statement.

“Using this blanketed patriotism as a defense against what the protest actually is was pretty cowardly. I think the NFL does it,” Rapinoe told Yahoo Sports. “I felt like the statement from U.S. Soccer, and then the rule they made without ever talking to me, that was the same as what the NFL was doing – just to not have the conversation, to try to just stop me from doing what I’m doing instead of at least having a conversation, and trying to figure out a [solution] that makes sense for everyone.”

Rapinoe is a captain on the U.S. women’s soccer team. The women’s soccer team is currently suing the United States Soccer Federation for “purposeful gender discrimination” in an effort to gain equal pay, according to The News York Times.

Kick the piece of chit off the team immediately. And revoke her citizenship until she apologizes to her team and her countrymen.

The one where lesbian coaches ARE sexual predators attacking young women. Lesbian coaches are far less trustworthy around youth than male coaches of the same age.

Look how fucked up things have become under liberalism and political correctness. That a US team has to make policy of such things.

These people are not well.

If she wants to make political statements, they should pull the team and let the other members personally express how they feel to her at missing their personal chance in life of being on a US National Team that competes. Had a friend who qual'ed in 1980 for Swimming and I think she is still pissed off.
