Rapinoe says she felt like “a total kid in the candy store” during White House visit, says “I think the genuine nature of the Bidens, just as people, is welcomed”

In a new interview with People, U.S. Soccer star Megan Rapinoe discussed her trip to the White House last month to discuss “equal pay day” in glowing terms.

Rapinoe told the publication “I was like a total kid in the candy store. I got to meet Jen Psaki as well. I love Jen Psaki. I think she’s an incredible press secretary. I don’t know why I geek out about these people, but that was really cool.”

“Obviously the White House is a really special place,” she also told People.  “Generally. I know I said I didn’t want to go there one time, but I think it’s a really special place. It obviously holds so much power.”

“I think the genuine nature of the Bidens, just as people, is welcomed,” Rapinoe later added.
