Does Megan Rapinoe have daddy issues? Sure sounds like it, based on a recent interview in which the U.S. women’s soccer player said that her father and other family members are Trump supporters.
“There’s been some major blow-ups. There’s definitely been some dust-ups,” she said, admitting that there has been stress in the family due to her frequent anti-Trump tirades.
Rapinoe continued about her family, “I don’t get it. How are you simultaneously as proud as punch of me, and watching Fox News all the time, [who are doing] takedowns of your daughter?’ That’s why I’m like: ‘You guys need to go to therapy.'”
I guess she doesn’t realize that they can love her and still vehemently disagree with her disrespect and political views.
In the interview, the co-captain claimed that the president is having trouble on deciding how to address the World Cup-winning team.
The team is “everything he loves with the exception that we’re powerful, strong women,” she said, “And he was having a really hard time – you could see in these sets of tweets: you hate us, you love us, you want us to come [to the White House] – and you are threatening us, all at the same time.”
Rapinoe did say that she worried that her feud with Trump might negatively affect her team, especially when she began yelling that she would never go to the “fucking White House.” But she added that few of her teammates would go, either.
The player noted that she is somewhat anti-authority in outlook, “when there’s a person who is abusing their power or manipulating people, whether it’s a teacher when I was younger or Donald Trump now, there’s nothing that fires me up and grinds my gears more. I was just like: ‘No. That’s not happening.’”
Honestly, with how she is acting, I would almost be embarrassed to admit I was part of Rapinoe’s family! Her actions and nasty language is already a disgrace to Americans, let alone her family!
