VIRAL MOMENT EVERYONE’S TALKING ABOUT: Megan Rapinoe’s Girlfriend Sue Bird’s Powerful Essay Attack on Trump
Megan Rapinoe is not just helping lead the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team to the 2019 World Cup Finals in France, the star athlete was catapulted into the public eye, most notably, President Donald Trump’s after answering a journalist’s question saying she would “not go to the f**king White House,” if her team won.
After Trump shamed Rapinoe online, her girlfriend, former WNBA star Sue Bird, penned a message to 45. Publishing her words on The Player’s Tribune, she posted the essay entitled So The President Fucking Hates My Girlfriend, after Trump went on what she referred to as “a hate-filled Twitter spree trolling my girlfriend while she was putting American soccer, women’s sports, equal pay, gay pride and TRUE LOVE on her back, all at once, scoring two majestic goals to lead Team USA to a thrilling victory over France and a place in the World Cup SEMIFINALS.”
Bird wrote, “What’s legitimately scary, I guess, is like… how it’s not just his tweets. Because now suddenly you’ve got all these MAGA peeps getting hostile in your mentions, and you’ve got all these crazy blogs writing terrible things about this person you care so much about. It’s like an out-of-body experience, really — that’s how I’d describe it. That’s how it was for me.”
But as for her girlfriend Rapnioe, Bird added, “I’ll tell you what. You just cannot shake that girl. She’s going to do her thing, at her own damn speed, to her own damn rhythm, and she’s going to apologize to exactly NO ONE for it.”
