WNBA star Sue Bird is not a fan of Donald Trump.
Bird did not appreciate the tough Twitter talk coming from President Trump about her girlfriend, U.S. women’s soccer player Megan Rapinoe.
“It would take the President of the United States going on a hate-filled Twitter spree trolling my girlfriend while she was putting American soccer, women’s sports, equal pay, gay pride and TRUE LOVE on her back, all at once, scoring two majestic goals to lead Team USA to a thrilling victory over France and a place in the World Cup SEMIFINALS, for me to ever even think about writing again,” Bird wrote in the Player’s Tribune.
“But I’m a woman of my word. So here I am.”
A video surfaced last week that showed Rapinoe bluntly stating she wasn’t going “to the fucking White House” if the U.S. women’s national team wins the World Cup.
Trump responded on Twitter, stating he is a “big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer” but “Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job!”
The Seattle Storm star decided her team that just won the 2018 WNBA title would also not go to “the (f*cking) White House.”
“And you’ve got all these crazy blogs writing terrible things about this person you care so much about,” Bird wrote. “And now they’re doing takedowns of Megan on Fox News, and who knows whatever else. It’s like an out-of-body experience, really — that’s how I’d describe it. That’s how it was for me.”
“But then Megan, man….. I’ll tell you what. You just cannot shake that girl. She’s going to do her thing, at her own damn speed, to her own damn rhythm, and she’s going to apologize to exactly NO ONE for it. So when all the Trump business started to go down last week, I mean — the fact that Megan just seemed completely unfazed? It’s strange to say, but that was probably the only normal thing about it.”
You can fully expect Trump to read these comments and fire back on Twitter.
