United States Women’s Soccer National Team star and World Cup Champion Megan Rapinoe has become a polarizing figure.
With her attacks on President Donald Trump and her accepting of an invitation to visit New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez she is making it worse.
Then, on Tuesday, she appeared on CNN with host Anderson Cooper and essentially categorized herself as not being an American.

And she did not stop on Wednesday when she cursed during the New York City parade for the team causing MSNBC to apologize and by saying the team could not win if it did not have gay players.
“New York City, you’re the motherf***er best!” she said, classy as ever, as the crowd cheered for her and her vulgarity.
“Well, we certainly want to apologize for the language at the end there,” MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin said to the audience.
“But that is Megan Rapinoe speaking in New York City right now to the tens of thousands of fans who have assembled to celebrate that World Cup championship.”
On Twitter after the United States defeated the Netherlands she shared a photo of her and two other homosexual teammates with a caption.

“We already discussed this,” she said in the tweet. “Science is science. Gays rule,” she said, as if heterosexuals could not win.

It was a continuation of what she told The Guardian about somehow in her mind, science has proven gay people are better.
“Go gays! You can’t win a championship without gays on your team — it’s never been done before, ever. That’s science, right there!” she said.
“I’m motivated by people who like me, who are fighting for the same things. I take more energy from that than from trying to prove anyone wrong.
“That’s draining on yourself. But for me, to be gay and fabulous, during Pride month at the World Cup, is nice,” she said.
For centuries heterosexuals have won numerous sports Championship, more than could be counted in merely one story.
But that is not the point of what she said. The point she is making is that, in her mind, gay people are better than straight people.
