‘Sports Illustrated’ Names Megan Rapinoe its ‘Person of the Year’

The magazine Sports Illustrated named the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team player and outspoken Trump critic Megan Rapinoe its “Person of the Year” for 2019, according to Breitbart.

The magazine’s editorial on Rapinoe was overflowing with praise for the notoriously foul-mouthed lesbian, specifically praising her criticism of President Trump; the magazine falsely claimed that Rapinoe was “under attack by a world leader” and responded “without fear.”

However, as Breitbart notes, Rapinoe was not attacked by President Trump at first; it was Rapinoe who issued the first insult by saying she’d refuse to visit the White House if the women’s team won the World Cup.

Following President Trump’s criticism of her arrogance in assuming that they would win, Rapinoe continued to make anti-American statements through such actions as refusing to place her hand on her heart or sing during the National Anthem. Immediately after the team’s global victory, Rapinoe and several other teammates celebrated by dropping the American flag onto the ground and stomping on it before another teammate picked it up.
