With the United States Women’s National Soccer Team moving onto the semi-finals of the Women’s World Cup after their impressive 2-1 victory over France yesterday, team co-captain Megan Rapinoe — who scored both winning goals — didn’t really need to do anything else to demonstrate to President Trump how little she cares about his invitation to the White House for the team.

Rapinoe garnered a significant amount of media attention last week when her profane reaction to a question about a potential invite went viral.

“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.”

The widespread coverage of her vehement response caught the attention of President Trump who petulantly did his best to humiliate the soccer star by immediately tweeting a win or lose invitation to the team while admonishing them to put up by winning or shut up.

Progressive Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) gave the team a much more attractive alternative when she invited them on a tour of the House of Representatives yesterday after their latest victory.

Rapinoe, whose political sympathies are apparently more in line with the firebrand progressive representative than the president, eagerly accepted this invitation in a way that will surely have Trump pondering over his Twitter keyboard, fumbling for an appropriately insulting response to the news.
