Loser President Mocks US Women’s Soccer Team for Getting Olympic Bronze Medal: ‘Leftist Maniacs!’

Ugh, gross.

Former President Trump, also known as a one-term former president who LOST to Joe Biden, criticized the U.S. women’s national soccer team, by saying players would have won the gold medal and not the bronze at the Olympics if they weren’t so ‘woke.’

“Woke means you lose, everything that is woke goes bad, and our soccer team certainly has,” Trump said in a statement.

“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,” he argued.

The women’s team took third place and the bronze medal in Tokyo after defeating Australia 4-3 on Thursday. They were knocked out of contention for a gold medal after losing to Canada 1-0 earlier in the week, which conservatives were just gleeful about. Some patriots.

Trump has repeatedly targeted the women’s national team for abuse, and players have fired back at the president.

Things grew especially heated in 2019 as the team worked its way toward eventually winning the women’s World Cup. Star player Megan Rapinoe, asked if she was excited about going to the White House if the team won, said ahead of the tournament, “I’m not going to the f—— White House.”

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?

Trump responded on Twitter, which has since blocked him from using the platform, saying, “Megan should win before she talks.”

Trump has repeatedly picked fights with politically minded athletes, making Colin Kaepernick a major target when the then-San Francisco 49ers star took a knee to protest racial injustice.

Trump on Thursday returned to that theme, criticizing players for kneeling during the anthem and saying that while there were “a few Patriots standing,” they “they need more than that respecting our Country and National Anthem.”

“They should replace the wokesters with Patriots and start winning again,” he added.

Trump specifically singled out Rapinoe without mentioning her by name, writing, “The woman with the purple hair played terribly and spends too much time thinking about Radical Left politics and not doing her job!”

People on Twitter was absolutely disgusted, as they should be:
