President Donald Trump got his revenge on Megan Rapinoe after the “woke” U.S. women’s soccer star missed a penalty kick and blew the team’s World Cup hopes.
Trump and Rapinoe have an ongoing feud and neither side has hinted at backing down.
“The ‘shocking and totally unexpected’ loss by the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team to Sweden is fully emblematic of what is happening to our once great Nation under Crooked Joe Biden,” Trump said.
“Many of our players were openly hostile to America – No other country behaved in such a manner, or even close.
“WOKE EQUALS FAILURE.
“Nice shot Megan, the USA is going to Hell!!!! MAGA.”

Trump’s comments came after the team was eliminated from the World Cup.
Rapinoe choked in the big moment and missed a penalty kick, resulting in the team being knocked out of the tournament.
Asked what she was thinking when she took her penalty to win the game Rapinoe said: “I’m gonna score.
“Back of the net. Always.”
And what was going through her mind after she choked, she said: “A sick joke.
“That’s why I had that smile on my face.
“Like, ‘You got to be f—ing kidding me. I’m going to miss the penalty?’
“I honestly can’t remember the last time I missed a penalty.
“Not in a game for a very long time.
“But that’s the way it goes.
“I’ve definitely thought about that before — it’s always a possibility when you step up there.
“But I thought I was going to make it.
“I thought everyone was going to make it.
“I feel so lucky and so grateful to play as long as I have and been on as many successful teams as I have and be a part of a very special generation that has done so much on and off the field.
“It would be hard to feel disappointed in any type of way.
“Obviously there’s the immediate disappointment of being out of the tournament, but I’m OK.
“I’m ready in a lot of ways to be done and I feel at peace with that.
“I’ve loved every bit of my career.
“I’ll miss it to death, but it also feels like the right time and that’s OK.
“It’s some dark humor, me missing the penalty at the end of this game.”
