Anthem kneeling Megan Rapinoe disses White House, accepts invite from Chuck Schumer
You know the purple headed lady Megan Rapinoe on the women's national soccer team? The one who takes a knee during the National Anthem, said she doesn't want to go to the 'f-cking' White House, and was even in a video celebrating the World Cup victory where they threw the American flag on the ground. Well, she has accepted an invite from Chuck Schumer and it looks like she'll be hanging out with him and Nancy Pelosi.
Despite her obvious distaste for America and fact that she's stated she wouldn't go to the White House because she clearly does not like Trump, it should be noted that Trump never actually invited the women's team in the first place. There was no formal invite for the women's soccer team to visit the White House.
So what's really happening is probably this: Trump saw that several players were being anti-American and he doesn't want them in the White House where the President and our country are represented. Megan Rapinoe is not a good representation of America. She is terrible.
The Blaze stated " Megan Rapinoe — by far the loudest voice on the U.S. women's soccer team — said her squad would be "very happy to accept" U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's invitation to visit the Senate's "upper chamber" to celebrate the team's World Cup victory.

Schumer (D-N.Y.) issued a "formal invitation" to the team on the Senate floor Monday and also called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to bring equal pay for women to a vote. "
Chuck Schumer talks about equal pay, but he's just another one of those people who purposely ignores basic math. Men's sports make more money every year, which is why the leagues/teams are able to pay the players more money.
What the #USWNT did was extraordinary, and they deserve to be compensated fairly.— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) July 8, 2019
All women need to be compensated fairly. Period.
And we ought to pay attention to this not just once every four years during the World Cup, but year-in and year-out. pic.twitter.com/gtWgiHS2PH
