It’s been almost a year since the obnoxious United States women’s national team won the World Cup. In the time since, the players have become the epitome of the expression “your fifteen minutes of fame are up.”
Nobody really cares what controversy they’re attempting to stir now but they are in a massive lawsuit against the United States Soccer Federation.
And former Vice President Joe Biden wants the U.S. women’s soccer team to defy that federal judge’s decision.
The United States women’s soccer team is coming off an unprecedented run on the worldwide stage after winning their second consecutive World Cup last summer.
And although they were dominant over every country they faced, the women’s national team stirred controversy by publicly criticizing President Trump and flaunting their arrogance while defeating opposing teams.
Early on in their World Cup run, a sports journalist asked Rapinoe if she would visit President Trump’s White House if they won the World Cup and she said, “I’m not going to the f—king White House.”
This actually sparked Trump to take the high road and invite them regardless if they won the whole thing or not. After the USWNT won, Trump tweeted, “Congratulations to the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team on winning the World Cup! Great and exciting play. America is proud of you all!”
But amidst all the hoopla surrounding their victory, many politicians like Sen. Kamala Harris and former Vice President Joe Biden called for the women’s soccer team to have equal pay to their male counterparts.
But Judge R. Gary Klausner of the United States District Court for the Central District of California, delivered a crushing blow to the USWNT after siding with the United States Soccer Federation’s argument they were drastically underpaid.
In fact, according to Andrew Das of the New York Times, “In his ruling, he dismissed the players’ arguments that they were systematically underpaid by U.S. Soccer in comparison with the men’s national team. In fact, Klausner wrote, U.S. Soccer had substantiated its argument that the women’s team had actually earned more ‘on both a cumulative and an average per-game basis’ than the men’s team during the years at issue in the lawsuit.”
Of course, the team’s lawyers plan to file an appeal.
In the meantime, Biden urged them to appeal and keep fighting.
The former vice president wrote on Twitter, “To @USWNT: don’t give up this fight. This is not over yet. To @USSoccer: equal pay, now. Or else when I’m president, you can go elsewhere for World Cup funding.”
Biden is really confident he will defeat incumbent President Trump in November. How did it work out for the last person who was overly confident they would win the election against Donald Trump?
Rule number one for Democrats moving forward should be to never underestimate President Trump.
Biden also stands accused by his former Senate staffer, Tara Reade, of sexual assault stemming from an incident that occurred in 1993.
What do you think the women’s soccer team thinks about that allegation? Or will they just ignore it like the rest of the Hollywood elitists and mainstream media?
