Megan Rapinoe's girlfriend Sue Bird says Trump 'f**king hates' the soccer star: 'It would be ridiculous if it wasn’t so gross'
WBA star Sue Bird slammed POTUS Donald Trump for his attacks on the soccer star Megan Rapinoe in an essay titled 'So the President F**king Hates My Girlfriend'
Megan Rapinoe's girlfriend Sue Bird has called out President Donald Trump for attacking Rapinoe.
Bird published a blog post on Tuesday in The Player's Tribune titled 'So the President F**king Hates My Girlfriend' and slammed the president for his recent comments against her girlfriend.
The WBA star expressed her disbelief that the president would be concerned with such trivial matters and take time to attack the US women's soccer team co-captain.
"Some of it is kind of funny... but like in a REALLY? REALLY? THIS GUY??? kind of way. Like, dude — there’s nothing better demanding your attention?? It would be ridiculous to the point of laughter if it wasn’t so gross," Bird wrote.
Last week, Trump had attacked Rapinoe in a series of tweets after she revealed that she would not visit Trump at the White House if her team won the Women's World Cup. "I am a big fan of the American Team and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job! We haven’t yet invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the TEAM, win or lose," Trump wrote.
Trump also criticized Rapinoe for taking the knee while the national anthem was being played in solidarity with former NFL star Colin Kaepernick’s protest against police brutality and racism. "Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team," the president's tweet read.
In her blog post, Bird said that it was "legitimately scary" that Trump fans have come after her and Rapinoe in full force with vile threats and comments.
"It’s not just his tweets. Because now suddenly you’ve got all these MAGA [Make America Great Again] 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," she wrote.
Bird was full of praise for her girlfriend's cool demeanor and wrote, "I just think it’s also really important not to forget what this is actually, first and foremost, about, you know? It’s about a world-class athlete, operating at the absolute peak of her powers, on the absolute biggest stage that there is. It’s about an athlete f**king killing it. It’s about Megan coming through."
"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," she added.
