This week I’ve avoided writing about the unfolding drama between U.S. Soccer legend Megan Rapinoe and Donald Trump because I could see this train wreck coming from the minute this clip appeared in my timeline. I was hoping the focus would stay on the success of the team and not turn into a pissing match with the tweeter-in-chief, who never misses an opportunity to play the victim. To bring you up to speed, Megan Rapinoe was asked if she “was excited about going to the White House” (if the US women’s team brings home the World Cup trophy.) The outspoken star gruffly replied, “We’re not going to the f*cking White House.”

You know what’s coming next, right?

Of course, Donald Trump went on the Twitter offensive, tagging Megan Rapinoe and saying she disrespected her country, flag and the White House. Except, he tagged the wrong Megan Rapinoe. He tagged Megan Rapino. The wrong Megan Rapinoe fired back with a rightful smackdown.

Megan Rapino hits back at Trump on Twitter.

How is he so bad at this? Tweeting is allegedly his strength, right?

There is no reason for Megan Rapinoe to visit the White House. She’s been an outspoken activist for years, promoting both LGBTQ equality and social justice. She’s one of the few white athletes whose had the courage to take a knee during the national anthem in solidarity with black athletes fighting for racial justice. And she has, of course, taken hits for it over the years. Nevertheless, she’s persisted.

Here’s to hoping we get the focus back on the women vying to claim the best in the world title and bring home that World Cup trophy. They will be playing a very tough, skilled French team on Friday afternoon at 3:00 PM ET. Tune in and cheer them on in the quarterfinals, will you?

You’d think the POTUS would be able to be above personalizing EVERYTHING. Such a stupid little baby.

It’s not the WH that people don’t want to come to see it’s the occupant.

Ok, so did Trump just say in his little tweet-tantrum that “since he got criminal justice reform passed(I’m not exactly sure he even knows what that would entail)and “black unemployment” is staying at its all time low and poverty is down””, that the NBA players have no reason to continue their silent protest, which highlights the fact that young black men are racially targeted and sometimes are losing their lives also???Did that moron actually just suggest that to the NBA owners??? Oh, and btw, Megan Rapinoe is absolutely fuckin’ awesome, on and off the field.

That is what scares him. He hates strong women as they are not easily abused

From the little i could say i know, with an ever-rising global population and limited resources, energy has always been a challenging and dynamic sector. There have been a handful of well-established Energy Law LL.M. programs, historically focused on the oil and gas sector; in the US, Texas has always been a hub for the industry, making the University of Texas School of Law and University of Houston Law Center popular choices for LL.M. students looking to focus on the US market.
