Looks like Megan Rapinoe isn’t quite done calling out president Donald Trump. Over, the weekend on an appearance on CNN, the outspoken Rapinoe called out The POTUS over his tweets about lawmakers Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib. Rapinoe, fresh off a World Cup win, said ‘It’s disgusting, to be honest.’

‘To say it’s disappointing is… it doesn’t even come close,’ she added. ‘I’m just honestly waiting for a racial slur to come out, like we’re not far from it at all. How much closer do we need to be?’
Rapinoe also added that she thought ‘everyone is like disgusted by that. That’s not who we want to be as a country,’ going on to note that even Republicans were ‘like wow, too far…even for us.’
She also went on to say that she found the general public’s disapproval of Trump’s tweeted sentiments energizing though, especially in the positive manner in which Omar was greeted by supporters at the airport when she flew back to her Minnesota hometown.
What do you think of Rapinoe’s continous comments on President Donald Trump?
