    She’s chic, fiery, and really darn good at soccer. Is it any wonder that everybody loves Megan Rapinoe? The soccer star and U.S. women’s national team captain has become a celebrity after guiding her team to yet another Women’s World Cup win on Sunday. Amid endless fanfare, she has received a glowing feature in the Washington Post, modeled for Sports Illustrated, and become a viral sensation. One article in the Week even endorsed her for president. There’s just one problem: She’s actually kind of an awful person. Rapinoe has soccer skills for sure, but her entitled, flippant, and unpatriotic attitude...

    Americans should be rallying together because of her success with the team, instead she is helping to divide us even further. She uses profanity to express her hatred towards the country and her character really shows when she speaks about President Trump. Rapinoe turned down an invite from the administration before it even happened. Rapinoe believes that her and her teammates should receive the same pay as the men’s team. She does not mention anything about the fact that the men’s team brings in a lot more revenue for the organization than her team does. Rapinoe is much like AOC,...

    U.S. Women's Soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe doubled down in her opposition to visit the Trump White House on Tuesday but expressed that she was open to accept invitations from anyone who "believes the same things we believe in" like Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY. Rapinoe's feud with the president began last month when she declared she was "not going to the f---ing White House,” which prompted a response from Trump on Twitter. "I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job!" Trump...

    Soccer champion Megan Rapinoe’s brother, Brian, has a history of involvement with white supremacist prison gang activity, ESPN reported on Sunday. Brian joined a white supremacist gang while he was in prison for car theft and other crimes. His hands, sides, and legs were tattooed with Nazi symbols, including a swastika and lightning bolts. Brian explained them as an effort to become “an active participant in prison culture.” Rapinoe said that she “thought [the tattoos] were horrible.” But, she added, “I could rationalize them: I understood that when he first got in there, he was searching for identity, trying to...

    The U.S. women's soccer team's star forward Megan Rapinoe told reporters Monday that the team would be “very happy to accept” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s invitation to come to Capitol Hill to celebrate their victory and discuss equal pay legislation. “What the #USWNT did was extraordinary, and they deserve to be compensated fairly,” Schumer, D-N.Y., tweeted on Monday. “All women need to be compensated fairly. Period. And we ought to pay attention to this not just once every four years during the World Cup, but year-in and year-out.” Earlier, Monday, during remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer invited the...

    The United States Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) won the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup on Sunday. In a match against the Netherlands, the USWNT defeated the Netherlands with a 2-0 victory. The first goal, as a penalty goal, was scored by co-captain Megan Rapinoe and the second by Rose Lavelle. This is the fourth time that the USWNT won the Women’s World Cup, solidifying the U.S.’s position as the country with the most Women’s World Cup victories. The USWNT also became defending champions as it has won in 1991, 1999, 2015, and now 2019. Before the match started, Rapinoe...

    @ALLIE_LONG I understand the excitement of the moment, but please NEVER disrespect the 🇺🇸 flag by dropping it on the ground! pic.twitter.com/OdPJqAP6r4 — Poetic Spaniard (@PoeticSpaniard) July 7, 2019 It appears that Allie Long wanted both hands free so as to better enact a self congratulatory hands in the air salute. This is unacceptable and demonstrates her priorities and lack of understanding on how one treats the flag. Twitter reaction was highly negative… Women’s national soccer team members Allie Long and Megan Rapinoe stepped on an American flag after Long dropped on the ground as they posed for post-game photos...

    President Trump unequivocally congratulated the United States women's soccer team after its repeat World Cup win on Sunday -- putting aside, at least for the moment, the firestorm surrounding star forward Megan Rapinoe's vow never to visit the White House. "Congratulations to the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team on winning the World Cup!" Trump tweeted. "Great and exciting play. America is proud of you all!" Asked by reporters later in the day whether men and women soccer teams should make the same money -- which Rapinoe has demanded -- Trump responded, “I would like to see that, but you’ve also got...
  • CRIME Florida woman who hid stolen Rolexes in vagina beats charge. What happens to the watches?

    Prosecutors were forced to drop criminal charges against a South Florida woman accused of stealing five Rolex watches — four of which were found inside her vagina during a jail strip search. Delajurea Brookens, 29, beat the grand-theft charge earlier this month when the victim, an Orlando businessman named Ramon Diaz, stopped cooperating with prosecutors. So what happens to the watches? Diaz only had proof of ownership of one Rolex, according to the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office. The rest will remain in the property room at the Miami Springs police department until someone files a motion with the court to...

    According to lawsuit, longtime Harris aide demeaned his executive assistant Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., expressed surprise and frustration when reports first surfaced last week that a longtime aide had settled allegations of gender discrimination last year — attributing her lack of awareness to a “breakdown” in communication. But the California Department of Justice received notification of the suit three months before Harris left her position as state attorney general, according to a new report. According to a lawsuit, Harris confidante Larry Wallace demeaned and retaliated against Danielle Hartley when she worked as his executive assistant at the state Department of...

    Kamala Harris (aka Kamel Hump & Harass) is famous for her pompous way of asking questions in Senate hearings. So I scanned Google Images to find a picture of Harris to turn into a meme.  I soon discovered a couple of interesting facts: It's hard to find a picture of Harris standing in a group.  You can find endless pictures of her sitting behind a desk or standing behind a lectern.  Then I looked it up and discovered that she and Chuck Todd could be twins because they are both 5 foot 2 inches tall.  So this is why she...

    Kamala Harris' office allegedly rejected SCOTUS courtesy call: 'We want nothing to do with you' By Serafin Gómez, Judson Berger | Fox News en. Kamala Harris’ office bluntly rejected a courtesy call from the White House in the run-up to Monday’s Supreme Court nomination, according to a senior White House aide. According to the account, the Democratic California senator’s office told White House Counsel Don McGahn, “We want nothing to do with you.” The senator's office has since denied saying that. Asked about the claim, her office confirmed that the senator's chief of staff, though not Harris, spoke with a...

    SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador -- A Salvadoran woman is in some trouble after she allegedly tried to smuggle into the country's main prison a military grenade and marijuana hidden in her vagina. The cylinder was about 10 inches long and 4 inches wide. Officials didn't say what prompted them to check Lidia Alvarado, 44, but authorities have raised the security level at jails across the country, fearing inmates may be planning something.
