Trump just made a delusional and questionably racist tweet in attack on US women’s soccer star

Never one to merely brush off even the most minor of slights — given his vengeful personality — President Trump naturally felt compelled to respond to the widely publicized and brutally honest response given by the United States women’s national soccer team co-captain, Megan Rapinoe, to a reporter asking whether she would be excited to visit the White House if her team won the Women’s World Cup.

Rapinoe’s answer was an incredulous and spontaneous emotional reaction.

“Psssh, I’m not going to the f*cking White House,” she blurted out before the reporter could even finish his question. “No. I’m not going to the White House. We’re not gonna be invited. I doubt it.”

This morning Trump went out of his way to prove Rapinoe wrong by extending an invitation to the team while making it clear that he believes that Rapinoe has no right to even comment on any invitation to meet the president until after her team actually wins the championship.

Shortly after beginning his tweet, Trump’s fractured syntax diverts mid-sentence to comment on a variety of other subjects, displaying an insidious internalized racism, before returning to his original topic.

Besides his thoughts on the ownership structure and nomenclature of the NBA, and a defensive — and now outdated — claim about black unemployment, he also includes lies about the U.S. poverty index, a calculation that he has tried to redefine to make the numbers look better.

Trump’s claims that “leagues and teams love coming to the White House” is belied by the many players who have declined the invitation to feast on the insulting fast food buffet that the president has unprecedentedly offered as celebratory fare for the victorious teams that he treats like trained monkeys, not worthy of the expense of a regular White House meal.

Trump’s decision to invite the women’s national soccer team to the White House “win or lose” would likely not have happened without Rapinoe’s vehement declaration that she wouldn’t attend and her doubts about whether women’s soccer was even on the president’s radar.

President Trump lectures the team’s co-captain as if her objection to meeting him stems from a lack of patriotism rather than her strenuous objection to the horrific policies of his administration in every area of its governance.

While Rapinoe has yet to reply to the president’s personal reprimand — probably because she’s focused on the next match in the Women’s World Cup — she could easily respond with the assertion that she is indeed proud of our flag and our country. It’s simply the corruption, incompetence, and evil policies of the current administration that leads her to believe that the United States is doing less than “GREAT.”
