Smerconish on U.S. Women’s Soccer Team: ‘Politics Intruded on Yet Another Area that Should’ve Been a Unifier’

‘Gone are the days that we’d unite against a common foe’
By Grabien Staff


SMERCONISH: “If lower Manhattan, aic iter tape parade celebrated the U.S. Women’s soccer team. Of course they deserved it, their play was extra ordinary. I watched at parade moved from battery park to city hall and they were greeted with a banner that read one nation one team. If only that are were the case. Instead it was sad to see partisanship seeped in to people’s reactions to the World Cup champions. Again, Politics intruded on yet another area that should have been a unifier for The Nation. Long before the final match, team co-captain Megan Rapinoe famously said she’d not visit the Fing White House which drew a pointed response from the president who said he’d nevertheless extend an invite. After winning, rapinoe said she was unaware of a single teammate who would be willing to go. No surprise then that formal invitation has yet to follow.”
