The U.S. Women’s soccer team — which lost to a team of 14-year-old boys in 2017 — celebrated their World Cup victory in New York City today, and captain Megan Rapinoe was as insufferable as ever.
In a classy move, she ended her speech by yelling “motherf*cker” into the microphone, which was perched atop the official podium of the city’s mayor.
The uncensored moment was broadcast on live television in the city and throughout the country.
“New York City, you’re the motherf*cking best!” she screamed as the crowd applauded her outside city hall.
During a parade in the team’s honor, Rapinoe rode on the float, and was seen on video holding a bottle of “Veuve” in one hand, the World Cup trophy in the other, and telling viewers, “I deserve this.”

“I deserve everything,” she added.
Rapinoe is the same player who nearly trampled an American flag after it was dropped on the field by teammate Allie Long during the post-game celebration.
The Fox broadcast caught Long holding a flag, letting it drag on the ground before dropping it altogether so they could dance.
Rapinoe was about to step on it before another teammate snatched it off the ground.
Rapinoe has come under criticism for refusing to stand during the National Anthem, instead opting to kneel in protest. She has vowed not to visit the White House should President Trump invite them.
She tells Eight by Eight that she’s not going, as some sort of epic Social Justice Warrior victory.

“Are you excited about going to the White House?” a reporter asked.
“I’m not going to the f*cking White House,” she said smugly.
“No. I’m not going to the White House,” she said as the reporter chuckled.
“We’re not going to be invited. I doubt it,” Rapinoe added, bitterly.
Trump already has invited the team.
