People cheered when US Women's Soccer Team co-captain Megan Rapinoe told a reporter that she wouldn't be "going to the f---ing White House" following the Women's World Cup.

President Donald Trump was not one of those people.


Rapinoe has been open about her distaste for Trump. In the past, Rapinoe has knelt during the National Anthem in solidarity with NFL player Colin Kaepernick's peaceful protest against police brutality and systemic racism. Trump has railed against these protests in the past and today, responding to Rapinoe's White House comment, was no different.

In a since-deleted version of the tweet, however, Trump tagged @meganrapino instead of @mpinoe.

It turns out she's no fan of Trump either, which she didn't hesitate to make clear by siding with the soccer champion.

Given Trump's 60+ million followers, Rapino's mentions soon blew up and hilarity ensued.

Rapino, who hadn't tweeted since March of 2017, instantly became a Twitter celebrity.

As it turns out, Rapino wasn't the only one who stood in stark disagreement with Donald Trump.

Rapinoe hasn't responded.

President Donald Trump raised eyebrows this week when he commuted the sentences of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, resulting in his release from prison.

Blagojevich infamously attempted to sell the vacant Senate seat left open by the election of President Barack Obama to President of the United States. Recorded calls showed Blagojevich saying he wouldn't give the seat away "for nothing."

Far-Right radio host Rush Limbaugh received widespread backlash earlier this month after laughing at the idea of gay South Bend, Indiana Mayor and 2020 Presidential contender Pete Buttigieg kissing his husband on a debate stage next to "Mr. Man," President Donald Trump.

Despite the backlash, Limbaugh recently revealed that Trump himself called and told him not to apologize for his words about Buttigieg, leaving some to question whether Trump was sincere when he said recently that he wouldn't have a problem with a gay President.
