Megan Rapinoe's Girlfriend Sue Bird Takes on Donald Trump

And with England, who put down Norway 3-0 to reach the semis, the U.S. had a more than worthy foe; Ellen White's gorgeous equalizer made that clear. That heading into today's semifinal, the team with four gold medals and three world titles, who have reached the semifinal round in all eight of their World Cup appearances, would be called arrogant by a team with, well, none of those things. "What do you want us to do?"

WNBA athlete Sue Bird, the girlfriend of soccer star Megan Rapinoe, slammed President Donald Trump on Tuesday for attacking Rapinoe. Just this morning, Bird released an op-ed piece with The Players' Tribune titled, "So the President F**king Hates My Girlfriend".

With the United States preparing to play in the women's World Cup final the team's fight for pay equity resurfaced on Wednesday with the Democratic Women's Caucus demanding answers from U.S. Soccer chief Carlos Cordeiro.

Rapinoe was the target of critical tweets by Trump after video emerged of her saying she would not visit the White House if the US retained the World Cup. Trump responded with three tweets that ranged from taking a shot at the National Basketball Association to inviting the U.S. team to the White House regardless of if they win the title.

In a recent interview, Rapinoe admitted that she had no interest in attending the White House, should the U.S. Women's Team take home the World Cup. No matter what injury challenges they face, there's someone else who will step up to the challenge. "It's unusual to say, but that was probably the only normal thing about it". "But then Megan, man...."

"To all those congratulating me on my wife's unbelievable World Cup performance: thank you!"

Once the governing body ruled that you must stand during the national anthem, Rapinoe began a different protest of her own. "She's going to do her thing". They made history together a year ago as the first gay couple on the cover of the ESPN body issue.

Bird isn't the only one stepping up to defend Rapinoe.

In the lawsuit, attorneys for the women point out that if both the men's and the women's teams were to win 20 non-tournament matches, the men would earn on average $13,000 per game, while the average women's team player would earn a maximum of $5,000 per game.

On Sunday night, she would love to cap off an intense tournament in style - a high-profile tournament where she has stood out with her goals, her pinkish-purple hair and also by standing by her opinions. "It's a lot of pressure on a goalkeeper to make a save in the semifinal of a World Cup to keep the other team on top".
