After making headlines for telling Eight by Eight magazine that she would not go “to the fucking White House” should the US women’s national soccer team win the World Cup, President Trump lashed out at her on Twitter.
“Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team,” he wrote in a series of three tweets Wednesday.
At Friday’s game in Paris, Rapinoe led the way for her squad, scoring both goals that lifted Team USA to a 2–1 victory against host nation France.
She then ran to the corner of the field and flung her arms in the air majestically in celebration as supporters in the crowd roared.
She was quickly ambushed by cheering members of her team, who jumped on her and hugged in celebration.
On Twitter, the USWNT said Rapinoe “is on another stratosphere right now and we’re so lucky to witness it.”
This is one of my favorite sports pictures of this decade. Thanks for being such an inspiration to my daughter @mPinoe – you were unbelievable today.
I don’t know what the female equivalent of big dick energy is, but Megan Rapinoe has it in spades.
Still, others couldn’t help but take the shot of a defiant Rapinoe and link it to the political drama that has followed her this week.
“behold the field in which I grow my fucks and see that it is barren” -megan rapinoe
For the rest of us nonsporting and/or lazy people, the pictures of Rapinoe swiftly became a hilarious meme.
The images went viral Friday and Saturday as people used Rapinoe to celebrate their own lesser accomplishments.
So, thank you, Megan Rapinoe, for your contributions to the worlds of soccer and memes.
