CASHIN’ IN: Women’s World Cup Star Megan Rapinoe Scores a Major Book Deal

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.25.19

Women’s soccer star and anti-Trump crusader Megan Rapinoe signed a major book deal this week; making national headlines weeks ago by refusing to meet the President of the United States and protesting the US anthem.

“Now, Ms. Rapinoe, a captain of the United States women’s soccer team, will transfer that message into a book. The untitled project, acquired by Penguin Press and expected to be out in fall 2020, will include anecdotes from Ms. Rapinoe’s life, said the Penguin Press president and editor in chief Ann Godoff, who made the deal, but its message will go beyond sports,” reports the New York Times.

“A lot of women, great women soccer players, have written memoirs,” Ms. Godoff said. “Megan has a different platform.”

“She’s just operating from this very honest and straightforward and ‘This is who I am’ place,” she added. “I think that’s what many people aspire to.”

US Women’s Soccer Star Megan Rapinoe publicly protested the US national anthem during last month’s victory parade in New York City; refusing to salute the flag as a member of the NYPD sang the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’



The controversial athlete unloaded on President Trump during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper Tuesday night; saying the Commander-in-Chief was excluding minorities and other groups with his ‘Make America Great Again’ slogan.

“Protest is not comfortable, ever,” Rapinoe told Cooper. “It’s going to make people uncomfortable, it’s going to cause people to look inwards and question everything they thought that they knew.”

The National Football League continued to reach new lows on Tuesday; flat-out rejecting a one-page advertisement in the NFL’s official Super Bowl Program that urged all Americans to “Please Stand” during the performance of the national anthem, reports USA Today.

The ad -submitted by pro-veteran’s organization AMVETS- urged all those attending the big game to remain standing as the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ rings out inside the arena. The material was ultimately rejected by the league for violating the NFL’s commitment to avoiding “political statements” in the program.

“The Super Bowl game program is designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told USA Today.

“It’s never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement. The NFL has long supported the military and veterans and will again salute our service members in the Super Bowl with memorable on-field moments that will be televised as part of the game,” he added.

The NFL’s been struggling to come to terms with a disastrous 2017 postseason following months of players “taking a knee” during the performance of the national anthem. President Trump rocketed the issue into the spotlight after he called for a full-fledged boycott of the NFL until league owners demand their athletes remain standing during the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’
