Anti-Trump U.S. Soccer star Megan Rapinoe accepted an invite from liberal medai sensation Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to visit Capitol Hill after the world cup.
Breitbart reported that earlier this week, Megan Rapinoe rather directly announced that she will not visit the White House after the U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) completes their World Cup run. However, the U.S. soccer star and co-captain apparently has no problem accepting an invite from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to tour Capitol Hill.
The US women’s soccer team will be visiting Washington, DC, after all — but not for a trip to the White House.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) inserted herself into the feud between team captain Megan Rapinoe and President Trump, inviting the squad to the US Capitol.
“It may not be the White House, but we’d be happy to welcome @mPinoe & the entire #USWMNT for a tour of the House of Representatives anytime they’d like,” AOC tweeted to Rapinoe on Friday, after the team beat France for a spot in the semifinals.
“Consider it done,” Rapinoe responded.
Another freshman Democrat, Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, piled on.
“No doubt the food & the company would be much better,” Pressley tweeted — a dig at Trump and his habit of providing fast-food feasts for visiting sports teams.
Trump criticized Rapinoe on Wednesday for being disrespectful to the country after she said that she is “not going to the f–king White House” should they win another World Cup.
