U.S. Soccer team star Megan Rapinoe will not be visiting the Homophobe-In-Chief at the White House but has decided to accept an invitation to visit Congress extended by AOC, Speaker Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
WASHINGTON — Megan Rapinoe has accepted an invitation for the U.S. women’s soccer team to celebrate its World Cup victory with a visit to Congress.
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday he looks forward to scheduling a time when ”these inspiring women can come to the nation’s capital.”
Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others in Congress invited the team to visit. Rapinoe said Tuesday on CNN that she had accepted invitations from New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Pelosi and Schumer to go to Washington.”
Questioned yesterday by Anderson Cooper about the Mango Menace, Rapinoe had this to say:
"Your message is excluding people. You're excluding me. You're excluding people that look like me. You're excluding people of color. You're excluding… Americans that maybe support you."

And here she is on The RMS:
You go, Megan.
And, when you visit, could you give some of your moxie to Chuck and Nancy?
They could use some.
