We covered last week that during the World Cup Tournament United States Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) famed leader Megan Rapinoe was asked if she would go to the White House on more than one occasion and she was pretty insistent that they wouldn’t even if invited, but they had to win first anyway.
Piers Morgan, being an avid Donald Trump fan tried to publicly shame her by politicizing the slight, framing it as if she wasn’t asked the question.
The arrogance of this is breathtaking. Try winning it first, Ms Rapinoe – then inform us of your latest tiresome political activism. https://t.co/bgvqEViHkL— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 6, 2019

Imagine being Piers Morgan and lecturing someone else about their breathtaking arrogance.— Kevin M. Kruse (@KevinMKruse) July 7, 2019
Hey @piersmorgan this is a good time to offer your congratulations AND apologize for your arrogant remarks about the team and Megan.— R Blackwood (@RRBlackwood) July 7, 2019

This Tweet, like Piers, has not aged well.— F (@Slanderous_Oats) July 7, 2019
It’s no surprise that Piers Morgan is an arrogant jackass anyway. But it’s really nice when shit like this blows up in his face.
Congratulations USWNT on your amazing victories! You do our country proud!
At least one President offered congratulations.
Yes! Fourth star. Back to back. Congrats to the record breakers on the @USWNT, an incredible team that’s always pushing themselves—and the rest of us—to be even better. Love this team. #OneNationOneTeam— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) July 7, 2019
Even Google got excited.
