The single most insipiring athlete in America this week: Megan Rapinoe

[SPOILERS]: Per the Washington Post:
This was a spectacle of women’s soccer, a capacity crowd in a famous stadium roaring as a reigning champion and an overdue contender collided in one of the most anticipated Women’s World Cup matches in history.
It lived up to its billing, and more. And when 90 exhausting minutes expired, the United States remained in contention for a fourth championship by edging France, 2-1, in a riveting quarterfinal before 45,595 at Parc des Princes.
Megan Rapinoe — the focal point of attention on the field by her exploits and off it for her outspoken opinions on politics, race and gender equality — scored twice for the second consecutive match as the Americans advanced to play England on Tuesday in Lyon…
Been a busy week for Ms. Rapinoe…
So as I’ve said previously about @mPinoe: Given this administration’s attitude toward the LGBTQ community (which they’ve enacted into policy), how do people not understand why she is upset?

Oh, @mPinoe. You are so bad-ass. Killing it on the field. Got folks mad cause you don’t wanna eat fast food at their house. Just keep shining. And I humbly invite you to dinner at my house anytime. Until then, I’ll watch this video of you being cool and epic. Onward! #AllEyesOnUS pic.twitter.com/VwMpzKmq7r
