WNBA’s Sue Bird Defends Megan Rapinoe, Trashes President Trump

Published

on

WNBA superstar Sue Bird is coming to the defense of her girlfriend, Team USA soccer star, Megan Rapinoe in a scathing response to a string of tweets from President Donald Trump.

Trump took to Twitter to take Rapinoe to task, rather immaturely, after Rapinoe said she would never go to the “f*cking White House” to celebrate with Trump if the Women’s US Team were able to take home the World Cup.

Here is the interview that set all things off:

Trump took to Twitter, in a series of tweets, to say that “Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job!” and also adding “Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team.”

Now, Bird is chiming in, writing a piece on The Players’ Tribune in response to Trump’s comments, titled ‘Sop the President F*cking Hates My Girlfriend”.

Bird kicked things off, in the section of her article where she addresses the issue, with a doozy: ” The one that’s probably most on your mind. And by that I mean: What’s it like to have the literal President of the literal United States (of literal America) go Full Adolescent Boy on your girlfriend? Hmm. Well… it’s WEIRD. And I’d say I actually had a pretty standard reaction to it: which was to freak out a little. “

“Like, dude — there’s nothing better demanding your attention?? It would be ridiculous to the point of laughter, if it wasn’t so gross. (And if his legislations and policies weren’t ruining the lives of so many innocent people.).”

“And then 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. And now they’re doing takedowns of Megan on Fox News, and who knows whatever else. It’s like an out-of-body experience, really — that’s how I’d describe it. That’s how it was for me.”

Trump is likely unable to resist responding, and will likely further this story by going on another one of his now-infamous, and sometimes venomous, Twitter rants.

The clock is ticking.
