Megan Rapinoe Is No Leader

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 7/12/2019 9:31:41 AM

Megan Rapinoe, the captain of the World Cup-winning U.S. women’s soccer team, has become the latest ideological thorn lodged underneath the collective skin of conservatives. But Rapinoe kneeling during the national anthem or saying that isn't “going to the f***ing White House” seems downright inoffensive compared to her behavior over the course of the past few days. Appearing on multiple news outlets, Megan Rapinoe appeared self-centered and divisive. She criticized President Donald Trump, as expected. She made accusations of homophobia, as expected. And an adoring Rachel Maddow called for Rapinoe to run for president, as expected.

The vision of her kneeling for the national anthem is one I will not forget. She is the reason I had zero interest in watching the team. If someone gave me her team shirt I would give it to a homeless person.

From what I have seen of her, she is an attention-seeking egomaniac, for whom the other team members are simply supporting cast. (They did just fine when the had to play the UK without her and beat them anyway.) The sad thing is that the other team members seem to think that it is fine that she grabs all the attention. Rather like the dutiful wives that these feminazis abhor...

Her true colors show when she raises her arms in a plea for personal adoration -- beseeching the heavens while wearing the uniform of the country she despises. Phony to the core as she willingly accepts the cheers aimed at the American team. The cheers are for the team and not her. Kinda like Bernie trading in his Socialistic platform and credentials for the Democratic label just to get elected. Phony and sneaky to the core. Two undeserving minority peas in a pod who won't run under their own banner.

She is a leader, but unfortunately she's leading her team over the cliff. Many people don't really like "in your face" leftist celebrities who can't keep their mouths shut.

Rapinoe is as repulsive as anyone I can think of in recent memory. I would snuggle with Kathy Griffin before I would get in the same ROOM with Rapinoe. She makes the average Waffle House waitress look like Paulina Porizkova in her prime. She is good only for making my investment in eleven foot poles look better and better.

Give an angry woman some face time and she will go nuts believing she deserves the attention. It's part and parcel of the entitled generation. They never had to pass tests, never had to be accountable, never were told to sit down and shut up, never told that their explanations and comments were vapid, never heard the word "NO" from anyone. How should they be expected to behave when no behavioral guardrails were ever set?

I think the numbers speak for themselves! The number of viewers watching World Cup Soccer was WAY down. I think Americans, Soccer fans or not, will not watch anyone who cannot support our country, especially when they are wearing US shirts and are in a foreign country! The whole thing was a turn off! Megan, to begin was a very poor spokesperson for the US Team. Are we really to believe not one woman on that team wanted to go to the White House? I doubt that! But Megan, being the Bully she is, did not allow anyone else to speak! SHE called the shots! So now, SHE can be the one to blame for the Poor numbers of US viewers! I would bet sales of World Cup Gear will also be way down. I certainly wouldn't buy a Shirt if I had young daughters. No Way would I want my daughters to see Megan as a Role Model! She is disgusting!

A delegation of nearly 50 members of Congress petitioned the Trump administration on Wednesday to cancel a series of sanctions waivers that have permitted Iran to continue its most contested nuclear research, including at a military site known to have housed the Islamic Republic's bomb program, according to a copy of the letter exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The letter, spearheaded by Rep. Liz Cheney (R., Wyo.), represents the strongest protest to date by lawmakers who view the waivers as an attempt by some deeply entrenched U.S. officials to keep the landmark nuclear deal on life support against the White House's wishes.

When I saw President Trump’s odd tweets over the weekend — the ones that told four American lawmakers to “go home” — my first thought was about Napoleon Bonaparte, who famously said, “Never interfere with an enemy while he’s in the process of destroying himself.” (Video) That’s just what the Democrats had been doing for weeks. In their first presidential debate last month, all but a few of the 20 candidates running for the White House pledged to give illegal aliens free health care and said crossing the border illegally should be just like getting a parking ticket.

His tweet will not live in infamy, but his cringe-worthy “go back” language rhymes with many of his earlier self-inflicted mistakes.

Families going out with their dogs, which are carefully groomed, looking extremely healthy and happy. The pet is a real member of the family. His needs are as important to his owners as their own. Because of this close relationship, dogs have developed the ability to perfectly understand us.

Just 27 percent said they’d rather he continue his presidential bid. Since then, his national poll numbers have dropped significantly—one recent poll of New Hampshire voters found that O’Rourke had 0.0 percent support in the state.
