World-renowned talk show host, Rush Limbaugh, says that Megan Rapinoe wants a contract with Nike as their LGBTQ queen.
Limbaugh says that the motivating force behind her antics during the world cup was her desire to sign a huge figure contract with Nike to serve as their female version of America hating Colin Kaepernick. Nike recently shelved the Betsy Ross shoes as being racist and hurtful even though there was no slavery in Philadelphia by law and that Betsy Ross was a fervent abolitionist.
But the same Nike had no problem producing shoes for the Chinese and Turkish flags.
Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of RushLimbaugh.com):
What are we supposed to take from this? Somebody help me, is she LGBTQ? OK. OK. Then that’s what this means. She’s talking about the oppression of gays. And Trump wants to bring that back. That’s what Make America Great Again means. He wants to go back, and he wants people like her in the closet.
There’s not a single utterance ever from Donald Trump on the subject. And, you know what? Anderson Cooper doesn’t care, as long as she’s saying it, mission accomplished. Cooper then said, “Can you see a day where you do put your hand over your heart and sing the national anthem?”
So here we have the captain of the American women’s soccer team reluctant to sing the national anthem. Do you know what I think this babe may be angling for? Kaepernick. She wants a Kaepernick deal with Nike. Damn straight. She’s angling for a Kaepernick. She’s showing Nike she can be just as anti-American as Kaepernick. Give me a chance. Let me do the LGBTQ angle of Kaepernick.
I don’t think they would pay her the same. Well, I say that. Who would ever know? We don’t know what they’re paying Kaepernick. We would only know if they pay her the same as Kaepernick if we find out what they’re paying Kaepernick. But she would demand to be paid the same as Kaepernick. But then she would have to perform like Kaepernick. They’d have to design a set of soccer shoes that had the American flag on it, she’d have to say, “Nope, not wearing ’em. Don’t sell ’em,” and they would say, “OK. We won’t.” Or whatever. Anyway, here’s how she answered the question.
