Megan Rapinoe is the U.S. women’s soccer player who is famous for kneeling during America’s national anthem and standing up when she’s paid to do Subway commercials.
Now one of her teammates is saying that she basically bullied other players into kneeling for the anthem.
Is this really very hard to believe?
FOX News reports:
Hope Solo says teammate Megan Rapinoe would ‘almost bully’ players to kneel during national anthem
Former U.S. women’s national team player Hope Solo said during a podcast last week that she saw teammate Megan Rapinoe “almost bully” players into kneeling for the national anthem.
“I’ve seen Megan Rapinoe almost bully players into kneeling because she really wants to stand up for something in her particular way, but it’s our right as Americans to do it in whatever way we’re comfortable with,” Solo said on “All of US: The U.S. Women’s Soccer Show” last Tuesday.
The former goalie described kneeling as “very divisive.”
“I do appreciate the fact that there’s no national anthem right before the game. To really remove that decision from athletes. Because that’s very tough, it’s tough,” she said.

Solo, 40, added that there is a lot of pressure on athletes and many feel they are “carrying the world on their back.”
“I think that’s really hard being on the main stage right now with so many political issues for athletes,” she said. “There’s a lot of pressure, and ultimately at the end of the day, our number one focus should and has always been to win first.”
Most Americans are pretty tired of being represented by people who clearly hate our country.

Megan Rapinoe should find a new profession. Or maybe a new country she doesn’t hate.
