U.S. Women’s Soccer star Megan Rapinoe, who STILL hasn't received an official invitation to the White House, told a French newspaper over the weekend that “not many, if any” of her teammates would attend a meeting with Donald Trump at the White House if they WERE invited... which they haven't been yet.

Rapinoe, who apparently didn't vote Republican in the 2016 election, has been in an online battle with President Trump for a few weeks now. She previously told a media outlet that she would not be going to “the f**king White House."

Charming woman.

President Trump responded to Rapinoe's initial taunts by saying she should focus on actually winning before dumping on the traditional post-championship invitation to the White House. He then invited the team to the White House, win or lose, but has since been less committal on the matter.

WIBC host Tony Katz discussed Rapinoe's comments in today's Popcorn Moment.
