On Wednesday, Megan Rapinoe smirked and refused to put her hand over her heart when the national anthem played during the World Cup victory parade in New York.
“As far back as last May, Rapinoe made it clear that she would never put her hand over her heart and sing during the national anthem again because of President Donald Trump,” Breitbart reports.
“I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart. I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again,” Rapinoe said. She views herself as “a walking protest when it comes to the Trump administration,” because of “everything I stand for.”
Now, with her attacks on President Donald Trump and her acceptance of an invitation to visit New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she is making it worse. Then, on Tuesday, she appeared on CNN with host Anderson Cooper and essentially categorized herself as not being an American.
Wednesday was much the same when she cursed during the New York City parade for the team forcing MSNBC to apologize, and she said the team could not win if it did not have gay players.
“New York City, you’re the motherf***ing best!” she said, classy as ever, as the crowd cheered for her and her vulgarity. Of course, Rapinoe couldn’t care less that kids were in the crowd.
“Well, we certainly want to apologize for the language at the end there,” MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin said to the audience.

Following their victory over the Netherlands, she shared a photo on Twitter of her and two other gay teammates with a caption.
“We already discussed this,” she said in the tweet. “Science is science. Gays rule,” she said, as if heterosexuals could not win. It was a continuation of what she told The Guardian about somehow in her mind, science has proven gay people are better.
“Go gays! You can’t win a championship without gays on your team — it’s never been done before, ever. That’s science, right there!” she said.
