Megan Rapinoe just endorsed Elizabeth Warren for president

Megan Rapinoe, the star of the US women’s national soccer team and World Cup champion, has once again waded into American politics — this time to endorse a 2020 Democratic nominee for president.

“I’m proud to endorse Elizabeth Warren today, for being bold, for being real, for listening to ALL of us, and for being prepared to navigate the unique challenges we face today as a country,” Rapinoe tweeted on Friday afternoon. It’s a message that could resonate with her 900,000+ Twitter followers and many others who take her stances — most prominently when it comes to equal pay for women — seriously.

One of those people taking Rapinoe’s endorsement to heart? Warren, of course. “Megan is a champion of justice on and off the field and a role model for women and girls everywhere,” the US senator from Massachusetts and leading presidential candidate said in a statement sent to me by her campaign. “I am honored to have her endorsement, and look forward to fighting alongside her for big, structural change.”

Rapinoe’s tweet also included video of a phone call between the two women in which the senator thanked the soccer star for her support. “You both lead your team on the field, but you also help lead America off the field,” Warren said. Rapinoe replied that she’d been following Warren’s campaign closely and believes that “it’s amazing. It’s big, it’s bold.”

10. So much for the theory that all athletes are dumb.

 

But for every Rapinoe, there's a Curtsy Schilling. Okay, 50% are dumb.
