Former President Donald Trump mocked the US women’s national soccer team after they settled for an Olympic bronze medal earlier this week, specifically taking aim at the “woman with the purple hair.”
That woman, Megan Rapinoe scored two goals as the USWNT held off Australia 4-3 to win bronze at the Tokyo Games. Despite being favored to win gold, few athletes will feel shame in winning a bronze medal at the Olympics. But Trump took the third-place finish as an opportunity to ridicule the USWNT for their various social justice messaging in recent years.
“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,”
