Trump Blasts U.S Women’s Soccer Team: If They Weren't 'Woke' They'd Have Won Gold
'Woke means you lose, everything that is woke goes bad'
Donald Trump said "woke" politics in the U.S. Women’s soccer team caused them to earn bronze medals in the Olympics and not gold.
“If our soccer team, headed by a radical group of Leftist Maniacs, wasn’t woke, they would have won the Gold Medal instead of the Bronze."
“Woke means you lose, everything that is woke goes bad, and our soccer team certainly has.”
The women’s team claimed a bronze medal after defeating Australia's team with a 4-3 victory.
Trump torched the majority of the players for kneeling in protest at the Games.
Trump did, however, praise those brave enough to stand.
“They should replace the wokesters with Patriots and start winning again,” Trump said.
In the opening game of the Olympics, the team lost to Sweden, which put America's future success in the sport into question.
The team also took a beating in the quarterfinals against Canada.
Trump took aim at Megan Rapinoe for her continued criticism of the United States.
“The woman with the purple hair played terribly and spends too much time thinking about Radical Left politics and not doing her job!” he wrote.
Rapinoe responded to the widespread criticism of the team:
“For women’s sports, criticism in the media still needs to get better,” she said.
Trump's remarks join the general consensus of most Americans who took to social media to celebrate their defeat.
Many patriots back home reacted gleefully when the team went down to defeat in Japan.
“Little Ms. Purple Hair and her team of woke warriors fell flat on their faces,” read an article on the website of American conservative commentator Wayne Dupree.
“Maybe it would have been smarter for Team USA to focus more on the actual sport of soccer than the sport of ‘liberal wokeness,'” the article continued.
“I mean, if there was a medal for being ‘Social Justice Warriors,’ team USA would have taken every gold medal in the joint.”
Instead of holding America up to the world as a shining example of equality & opportunity for women around the world, they tore us down. Many American sports fans will never forget this. The result? I’ve never seen a team squander more love & goodwill in my life as a sports fan.— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) August 2, 2021
