Megan Rapinoe has made it clear she won’t visit the White House should the U.S. women’s soccer team win the World Cup, but she’ll be heading to Washington regardless.
After the U.S. team beat rival France in the quarterfinals yesterday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez invited Rapinoe and her teammates to visit the House of Representatives in a Trump-free celebration of America.
Needless to say, it was fun to watch.
Yes! 🇺🇸⚽️✨— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 29, 2019
Presumably the invitation stands, win or lose. (Hey, we hope they’ll win, but it’s nice to know there will be a party actually worth watching this summer after Trump hosts his gauche Celebration of Himself on July 4.)
Go Rapinoe. Go USA. Go soak your spongy circus peanut head in the Potomac River, Mr. Pr*sident.
