Twitter Descends Into Mockery After Melania Tags Wrong Team Following US World Cup Win
The Trumps just can’t get it right when it comes to sports teams. Their relationship with athletes hasn’t been a good one, and it seems it’s getting worse by the minute.
After the US women’s soccer team victory to nab the World Cup and a bar full of patrons in France chanted “Fuck Trump!” live on Fox News, the White House family’s responses continue to be lackluster at best.
Donald himself took forever to even congratulate the team. Melania was a step ahead of her hubby with felicitations, but even she completely fucked them up when she actually offered her compliments to the wrong damn team.
“Congratulations to 2019 Women’s World Cup Champions @TeamUSA!” Melania’s tweet read, featuring a soccer ball and American flag emoji. What’s the hangup, you ask? The @TeamUSA handle belongs to the US Olympic team — not Megan Rapinoe’s soccer team who actually took home the World Cup today.
Of course, Twitter users had to respond and mockery ensued:
Congratulations to 2019 Women’s World Cup Champions @TeamUSA! ⚽️🇺🇸

Talk about hypocrisy and trying to pretend your “husband” didn’t denigrate members of the team weeks ago. Birther

@USWNT not Team USA. I suppose this is more than what your lying, corrupt husband did, but still not good enough. Embarrassing.
