It’s become cool in sports these days to tell everyone within hearing range that you wouldn’t go to the White House even if you were invited. You see it throughout the sports world now. And it doesn’t matter if it’s the pros, college or even high school… everyone is taking a political stance these days. It’s disheartening.
On the top of the heap of irrelevance here comes the WNBA champs, who have not been invited to the White House after their win this year but saw fit to preemptively refuse any invitation coming their way from President Trump. Well, Trump got the last big laugh because I seriously doubt he even considered inviting them. They are utterly irrelevant. This is sheer grandstanding for attention to get their name in the media, which it did.
The Seattle Storm’s team point guard Sue Bird, of course, blabbed to the Seattle Times that they would NEVER accept an invitation from the current occupant of the White House. Great! Their loss and frankly, they were on no one’s radar, to begin with.
“At this point does it even need to be discussed?” Bird told the Seattle Times Friday. “It’s come up. We pay attention to what happened with Minnesota and not getting invited. … We all pay attention to what’s going on.”
How arrogantly pathetic. So much for sportsmanship. The point guard was referring the Minnesota Lynx, which took home the WNBA championship last year and hosted a community service event in Washington, DC, earlier this year after they did not receive a White House invite from President Trump. What is it with these teams? They all seem to have a vastly over-inflated opinion of themselves.
The Storm won their third WNBA title Wednesday night against the Washington Mystics. Meh. Didn’t even know about it… don’t care.
“It’s a huge disappointment,” the 11-time All-Star said. “[It] used to be something that’s really special and something that was an honor and you look forward to.” Well, missy, you don’t deserve it. With that attitude, I wouldn’t have you in my home much less the Peoples’ House.
WNBA championship winning teams frequently visited the White House under former Presidents George W. Bush and Obama. But the disrespect that is shown President Trump makes for an argument to not even bother with the WNBA anymore.
Bird said it’s no longer something to look forward to… gee, wonder why? You mean she doesn’t get it? Bitterly biased and clueless all at once, it’s a twofer!
“There’s an excitement about it. You’re going to the White House. I remember first walking in to meet President Obama and it’s like — just the aura — it’s insane,” Bird continued. “And now it’s, that’s not what the feeling is anymore. It doesn’t feel exciting. Nobody wants to go. It’s totally changed and that’s disappointing because it used to be something that most athletes looked forward to.”
“I think until people see a change it’s probably going to be the norm,” Storm forward Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis said. “I don’t see many people that are going to accept the invitation if they get one.” Well, all I can say is good riddance to bad rubbish. They should never be invited again.
Will Americans even notice that they aren’t visiting the White House? Not many and even fewer will care. Athletes have become so self-centered, arrogant and elitist, they aren’t worthy of visiting the President of the United States.
But they love Obama who was the left’s chosen one. Yes, let’s be groupies for a president that was Marxist in my opinion. Let’s fawn over a guy that was at best a progressive socialist. Maybe while donning a ‘Che’ shirt, or perhaps even ‘Mao’.
This certainly isn’t the first time a team won’t be invited to the White House or even disinvited. Last year, Trump withdrew an invitation for the NBA champion Golden State Warriors after star Stephen Curry said he didn’t want to attend. Wish granted!
The South Carolina women’s basketball team and the North Carolina men’s basketball team, which won NCAA titles in 2017, declined White House invitations. The Notre Dame women’s basketball team and the Villanova men’s basketball teams — the 2018 NCAA champions — have not received invitations.
Earlier this year, NBA star LeBron James also criticized Trump for not inviting the WNBA champions for a visit to the White House, telling reporters that it was “laughable” for the Minnesota Lynx to be excluded. Americans are not laughing, LeBron. Those that show disrespect for their president and for America have no business going to the White House.

Trans Athlete Wins Two Gold Medals At 2019 Pacific Games
It’s time that women athletes fight against this insanity. We have young women that have spent years training..only to have that chance of winning taken from them and given to a man. A man who can’t beat other men. These medals should be taken away.
Where all these so-called feminists? Amazing how you don’t see them boycotting against this.
The root cause of this insanity is organizations and groups that allow them to do it…that think they’re being ‘tolerant’ and ‘inclusive’.
As long as these mentally sick people are allowed then it will keep happening. They are trying to normalize this behavior. We are in a full culture war, folks.
Via The Daily Wire:
Over the weekend, a man who identifies as a woman won two gold medals at the 2019 Pacific Games in Samoa.
Laurel Hubbard, 41, formerly Gavin Hubbard, “won two gold medals and a silver in the three heavyweight categories, for women weighing more than 87 kilograms, or 192 pounds, finishing first in the snatch-lift and combined categories and second in the clean-and-jerk,” The Washington Times reported.
CaldronPool.com reported, “In second place was Samoa’s 18-year-old weightlifter Feagaiga Stowers, who won her nation’s second gold medal last year after Hubbard was forced to withdraw due to an elbow injury.” Stuff.co added, “Lifting for gold comes after revelations that Hubbard was charged with careless driving causing injury after her vehicle fishtailed on a sharp bend near Queenstown on October 24, 2018. Her car hit a vehicle carrying an Australian couple in their 60s. The male driver spent nearly two weeks in Dunedin Hospital and needed major spinal surgery on returning to Australia.”
Stuff also reported that Hubbard sought the permanent suppression of his name after the accident, and a judge ruling in February supported suppressing the name until the end of September 2019, but Stuff appealed, and last week the High Court overruled the judge from February. Stuff noted, “Justice Gerald Nation said Judge Farnan had made a number of errors and Hubbard’s potential distress did not meet the legal test for suppression.” Continue Reading

Megan Rapinoe: Our Soccer Team ‘Has Managed To Make People Proud Again’
Yesterday, on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” U.S. Women’s Soccer World Cup championship team co-captain Megan Rapinoe credited her team with making “people proud again.” I could not disagree more. They disrespected the American flag by deliberately dropping it on the ground when they won and were very anti-American and anti-President Trump as well. I am deeply ashamed of them representing the U.S. in soccer and I think most Americans agree with that sentiment.
Rapinoe said, “I think the opportunity is in everyone’s exhaustion of the fighting and the negative, and our team has managed to make people proud again, to capture people’s interest, and make them want to do something. I think people are asking the question, how can we rally around this team? And in that, what the team stands for, whether it’s equal pay or racial equality or LGBTQ rights, I think we’ve just managed to give people hope, and with that, we need to do the next step, which is to actually take the progress step.”
The 34-year-old forward and co-captain of the team, who skyrocketed to national fame in recent weeks for her incredible performance in the world soccer championship as well as her outspoken opposition to President Trump, said Americans are tired of all the negativity. Yep, and it’s coming from her and her comrades.
From the HuffPost:
“Rapinoe, who is openly gay, has repeatedly accused the Trump administration of pushing policies that further threaten the rights of marginalized communities, such as LGBTQ people and immigrants. She made headlines last month when she told a reporter that she’s “not going to the fucking White House” if her team wins the World Cup.
“We’re not gonna be invited,” she added. “I doubt it.”
“Trump quickly fired back at Rapinoe on Twitter, claiming she should first “WIN” the World Cup before talking about a White House invitation. Her team subsequently beat the Netherlands 2-0 last Sunday to win the championship.
“Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team,” the president said.
“Rapinoe on Sunday called on her team’s fans to continue to take action on issues they’ve supported, including racial equality, LGBTQ rights, and equal pay.

“Asked if she’s considering a future run for political office, Rapinoe said she’s not sure she’s qualified to do so.
“There’s no qualifications for office these days,” host Chuck Todd told her.
“That’s true. Up to 44, I guess there was,” Rapinoe responded, an apparent jab at Trump’s total lack of political experience prior to becoming the 45th president of the United States.
“She continued: “You know what? I’m going to fight for equal pay every day, for myself, for my team and for every single person out there ― man, woman, immigrant, U.S. citizen, person of color, whatever it may be ― equal pay, as the great Serena Williams said, until I’m in my grave.”’

What Rapinoe misses is that no one cares if she’s gay and she’s ruining the sport for everyone out there. She obviously loves identity leftist politics more than her country. Frankly, she should just stay in Europe where she is far more at home.
And she is definitely not qualified for political office. We don’t need drama queens and grandstanding narcissists… we need those that love America, know what she stands for, and don’t malign her at every opportunity. That is definitely not Rapinoe.
