TOLERANCE: Rapinoe Says Her Dad Needs To 'Go To Therapy' Because He Voted For Trump


Far-left women's USA soccer star Megan Rapinoe has been at the forefront of the news in recent months for her hatred for President Donald Trump.

During the world cup, Rapinoe was asked if she would visit the White House if her team won the championship. "I'm not going to the f***ing White House. No. I'm not going to the White House. We're not gonna be invited. I doubt it."

Although the world cup is over, Rapinoe still continues with her hateful, anti-Trump rhetoric. After Colin Kaepernick kneeled for the National Anthem, Rapinoe decided to follow in his footsteps of disrespecting the American flag. After being called out by President Trump, Rapinoe recently responded saying, “It’s ridiculous and absurd. People were like: ‘That was so intense!’ And I’m like: ‘Honestly, he’s a fucking joke, so it wasn’t intense, because this is ridiculous.’”

During an interview with the Guardian, Rapinoe opened up about her family life including her parent's political views. She first responded to how it felt to be "attacked" by the President online.

“The only moment where I was like ‘Aaaargh!’ was when I thought: ‘Is this going to affect the team in some way?’ I didn’t want that to happen. But actually I have the opposite [view of] authority – my sister and I both. I wouldn’t say that we’re anti-authority, but when there’s a person who is abusing their power or manipulating people, whether it’s a teacher when I was younger or Donald Trump now, there’s nothing that fires me up and grinds my gears more. I was just like: ‘No. That’s not happening.’" she said.

After whining about President Trump, Rapinoe talked about life growing up and the political stance of her family.

When asked if she grew up in a political household, Rapinoe said, “No, not at all. I feel like I grew up with all of these lessons [about equality], but nothing was ever spoken. No language was ever put around it. Both of my parents should be really progressive – especially my mom – and I don’t get that they’re not. I’m always saying: ‘You guys should really be Democrats!’ But they’re not, so what’s happening?”

Things got weird when Rapinoe admitted that her dad may have voted for Trump and that she thinks he needs to go to therapy.

“I know. And I’m very similar to how they are, even though I think my dad voted for Trump and I’ll say: ‘I don’t get it. How are you simultaneously as proud as punch of me, and watching Fox News all the time, [who are doing] takedowns of your daughter?’ That’s why I’m like: ‘You guys need to go to therapy.’”

She was then asked if they fight now? “There’s been some major blow-ups. There’s definitely been some dust-ups.” She then adds: “I’m very close to my family. It’s not like: ‘Ugh, I’m from a conservative town and I never talk to them any more.’ I talk to my parents all the time, every day. And I feel like I have seen progress and growth. I would love it if people understood you should never say racist things and be OK with gay people, or whatever it is. But, obviously, it doesn’t happen that quickly.”
