earlier this month, we reported The US women’s soccer team’s humiliating defeat in the Round of 16 at the World Cup marks their first-ever exit from the event. Megan Rapinoe, who long considered herself the awakening Colin Kaepernick of the women’s soccer world, is now speaking out to claim that any criticism of her and her team for this loss is “fake.”

Rapinoe laments being criticized
Fox News The women’s soccer team’s performance at the World Cup was criticized by everyone from analysts like Carli Lloyd and Alexi Lalas to media personalities like Megyn Kelly and even former President Donald Trump, the report said. However, Rapinoe is bizarrely claiming that none of this criticism was actually real!
“It always is, because what he’s saying is fake,” Rapinoe explained. the Atlantic, “It’s a compilation of hit words and hot-button words that don’t really mean anything or don’t match reality at all… I think, in general, the way our team is treated during the tournament I was talked into, it was fake.
“And it made no sense to me: In 2019, we were overconfident, over-swaggy — and won everything. And even though we won, according to our critics, we did it in bad taste,” he added. “This time, we weren’t confident enough, and our ‘mindset’ wasn’t right.” And so we lost. This is very fraudulent. There’s no way we’re going to win, and there’s no way we’re going to lose.”

Rapinoe criticizes ‘The Right’
Rapinoe accused her opponents of waiting for her team to “stumble” as she attacked what she deemed “right”.
“Everybody on the right—and everybody who was using hate speech and these clumsy words—looks like they’ve been waiting since, I don’t know, 2016? 2019?” He said. “They were waiting for this team to falter. But when we are perfect, we are accused of thinking that we are perfect.
“Really, what’s happening is that the right wing wants this to be true: They want women to believe that you can’t fight for things and excel; You can’t ask for what you deserve and be successful, Rapinoe said.
It was Rapinoe who won the match against Sweden when she missed a crucial penalty kick. She was widely criticized afterwards for smiling and giggling, which indicated to some that she was not taking the situation seriously at all.
Rapinoe misses the fourth!

Trump lit Rapinoe
Former President Trump, whom Rapinoe had frequently attacked during his presidency, immediately blamed her for his team’s humiliating defeat.
“The US women’s soccer team’s ‘shocking and completely unexpected’ loss to Sweden is perfectly emblematic of what is happening to our once great nation under crooked Joe Biden,” Trump wrote on TruthSocial “
Trump further said, “Many of our players were openly hostile to America – no other country has behaved like this, not even close to it.” “Wake up equals failure. Nice shot Megan, America is going to Hell!!! Maga.”
Rapinoe made headlines in 2017 when she joined Kaepernick in kneeling during the national anthem before their games. Since then, she continues to bash America whenever she gets the chance.
Thankfully, Rapinoe retired from professional soccer after the World Cup, so we hope she’s never again forced to deal with her antics on the field. Like most lefties, Rapinoe can’t stand any criticism of herself, so it’s no surprise that she considers any negative criticism of her poor World Cup performance to be “fake”.
Perhaps Rapinoe should have paid a little more attention to her football, and a little less waking up all these years. Megan, how’s that for “fake” criticism?
