The legendary Sue Bird has had it with Trump’s Megan Rapinoe bashing

(CNN)Megan Rapinoe’s girlfriend, basketball star Sue Bird published a World Cup article/ political rant / love letter defending Rapinoe and the USWNT against President Trump’s recent criticisms, and it is a wild ride from start to finish.

“I mean, some of it is kind of funny….. but like in a REALLY? REALLY? THIS GUY??? kind of way,” Bird writes. “It would be ridiculous to the point of laughter, if it wasn’t so gross.”
She says that, while she was inclined to laugh at the ridiculousness of it all, the online hate she and Rapinoe have gotten from strangers has been unsettling.
    Bird won three WNBA titles (2004, 2010, 2018) and four Olympic gold medals (2004, 2008, 2012, 2016).
    In between President-focused clapbacks, Bird’s article is just 2,900 words of pure, uncut Megan Rapinoe love. Bird says the Trump tweets and online harassment barely get to her at all.
    “You just cannot shake that girl,” she writes. “She’s going to do her thing, at her own damn speed, to her own damn rhythm, and she’s going to apologize to exactly NO ONE for it.”
    Ultimately, Bird says, the politics and the controversy shouldn’t take away from the athletic achievements of Rapinoe and the whole USWNT. Rapinoe has been absolutely critical to the USWNT’s success in the tournament. She scored every single US goal in first two rounds of knockout play, notching two goals against both Spain and France for a pair of narrow 2-1 victories.
    “I just think it’s also really important not to forget what this is actually, first and foremost, about, you know?” she writes. “It’s about a world-class athlete, operating at the absolute peak of her powers, on the absolute biggest stage that there is. It’s about an athlete f*cking killing it. It’s about Megan coming through.”
    Girlfriends and boyfriends of the world, get on Sue Bird’s level.

    Reactions from Rapinoe’s inner circle

    Bird isn’t the only one stepping up to defend Rapinoe. The soccer star’s father, Jim Rapinoe, told CNN’s Paul Vercammen that even though he identifies as a conservative, he is proud of his daughter’s political inclination.

    “Megan and I don’t see some things the same way,” Jim Rapinoe said. “But I applaud her for taking a stance, for fighting for equality. And she will not back down from anyone when it comes to something she believes in.”
    “I never thought my daughter would end up in a Twitter way with President Trump,” he said.
    Oh, and by the way, another prominent partner of another prominent USWNT hero wants you to know something: Megan Rapinoe and Abby Wambach are, in fact, different people.
    Glennon Doyle, wife of former UWSNT star Abby Wambach, has taken to Twitter recently to express her support for “REVOLUTIONARY BLONDE SOCCER LESBIAN GODDESS” Rapinoe (quite a quote).
      “To all those congratulating me on my wife’s amazing World Cup performance: thank you!” Doyle tweeted. “Just real quick- my wife is the OTHER Revolutionary Mega Goal Scoring Blonde Lesbian Soccer Bad Ass. It’s okay, it’s confusing. Love you! Love the lesbian bad asses. Love the soccer.”
      The USWNT will face England in the Womens’ World Cup semifinals Tuesday afternoon at 3 p.m. ET.
