Maybe This Is Why Megan Rapinoe Is Acting Out?
The Co-Captain of The U.S. Women's Soccer Team, Megan Rapinoe, made headlines when she vulgarly claimed that she was not interested in going to see the White House. Since then she has also disrespected the flag and blames Trump for not being inclusive enough.
"Message to the president," she said. "I would say that your message is excluding people. You’re excluding me. You’re excluding people that look like me. You’re excluding people of you’re excluding, you know, Americans that maybe support you."
According to Rush Limbaugh, this could all be on purpose. It could be that she is trying to get herself a Nike contract. like the one Kaepernick has.
"What are we supposed to take from this? Somebody help me, is she LGBTQ? OK. OK. Then that’s what this means. She’s talking about the oppression of gays. And Trump wants to bring that back. That’s what Make America Great Again means. He wants to go back, and he wants people like her in the closet.
There’s not a single utterance ever from Donald Trump on the subject. And, you know what? Anderson Cooper doesn’t care, as long as she’s saying it, mission accomplished. Cooper then said, “Can you see a day where you do put your hand over your heart and sing the national anthem?”
So here we have the captain of the American women’s soccer team reluctant to sing the national anthem. Do you know what I think this babe may be angling for? Kaepernick. She wants a Kaepernick deal with Nike. Damn straight. She’s angling for a Kaepernick. She’s showing Nike she can be just as anti-American as Kaepernick. Give me a chance. Let me do the LGBTQ angle of Kaepernick.
I don’t think they would pay her the same. Well, I say that. Who would ever know? We don’t know what they’re paying Kaepernick. We would only know if they pay her the same as Kaepernick if we find out what they’re paying Kaepernick. But she would demand to be paid the same as Kaepernick. But then she would have to perform like Kaepernick. They’d have to design a set of soccer shoes that had the American flag on it, she’d have to say, “Nope, not wearing ’em. Don’t sell ’em,” and they would say, “OK. We won’t.” Or whatever. Anyway, here’s how she answered the question."
It makes sense, Kaepernick was practically awarded by Nike for disrespecting our flag. She also called out for equal pay for the women's team, despite already getting a better percentage than the men's team. So maybe this is all about the money.
