    THE TRUE AMERICAN HERO!!
    KEEP AMERICA GREAT!!
    🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲😃

  2. I would love to see the women's team face the men's team. Winning team gets the higher pay. Quality is key. Still congrats for winning! 🇺🇸

  3. There not heroes. They kick balls into goals for a living… they do things my children do on recess at school. Not heroic

  4. Here is why you don't get paid the same. This minority of people don't understand economics.
    This seems blatantly unfair, until you take into account the vastly different viewership and revenue from the two events. FIFA raked in more than $6 billion from the 2018 men’s World Cup. The women’s 2019 World Cup has been projected, when all is said and done, to make about $130 million.

  5. A celebration after disrespecting the flag? You kick balls around for a living there lucky there passports didnt get revoked

  6. I would personally strip them of their citizenship and ship them off to Saudi Arabia. Try playing football over there.

  7. That's too bad I was kind of hoping they would stay where they were we have enough traitors in our country

  8. Equal pay for the men now!! It's already been proven the women's payroll is 22% of the revenue and the men are only getting paid 7% of their revenue. The women are making triple what the men are.

  9. As an American, I HATE THAT WE WON THE WORLD CUP! Megan Rapeonme is an embarrassment to American sports! Not wanting to go to the White House if you win an NBA or NFL championship is one thing, but not wanting to go after representing your country is a whole new level of disrespect

  10. May have won the game, but when they disrespected the flag and country and president, they lost the respect and support of many, so the final outcome is they're all LOSER'S .

  11. I am for the wage gap. After what these women did to the American flag, more reason for them to play for less.

    Maybe a little more then Chinese soccer player who plays for a bowl of rice.

    Wait til the transgenders take over the game. Bye – bye women’s soccer.

    Hello, gender whatever it will be, men’s soccer 2.0, who knows.

  12. Winning means nothing especially when you are a piece of trash disrespecting the flag you claim to represent disrespecting the country in which you are from and disappointing millions of loyal American citizens with your behavior and tell you the truth I kind of wish you would have lost.

  13. not belaboring the obvious however their marketing image issues and personalized attention agendas are going to need more than a miracle if expecting to translate across a political spectrum of persuasion, and thats obviously with all their support credentials achievements notoriety fame recognition momentum and emotion. lol.

  14. Reply to me if you just clicked on this video to spread your hate for successful women……I'm waiting….

  15. This video is a clear sign of a gang of trash women. Total pile of TRASH. Go home and bake some cookies. Period.

  16. They are amazing at what they do and deserve all the praise for the accomplishment. They maybe and probably are the best women’s team ever. That being said they are paid more then men by % of earnings and should be they have been more successful. But now they want to be paid more because men’s soccer is more successful as a sport world wide. Not happening ladies.

  17. Checked off every single box including losing to a group of pubescent 13 to 15 year old males lmao i cant get over the humility and grace this "woman" lacks. . Guess thats our society atm tho.

  18. My niece plays on the US team and I know for a fact (without naming names or going into details) that a number of players have been playing with greater levels of testosterone in their bodies as compared to the competition – which obviously gives them a much greater advantage – ALL IN THE NAME OF WINNING.  Many baseball & football players, body builders, etc. etc. have been taught that ‘Winning is EVERYTHING’ since they were able to walk. But at what cost? Many wound-up developing illnesses which have taken their lives at a young age, but those lessons seem to have fallen on deaf ears with future generations.  Very sad.

  19. The "game" the US Women lost in Dallas was a scrimmage some twenty-seven months back. The women were not trying to win anything but publicity.
    One of those fifteen year-old (fifteen years, seven months then) players stands six-two, one-ninety at seventeen years, ten months. Pictures taken at the time show that Tanner Tessman was at least half a head taller than any of the women photographed with him.
    Soccer is not a non-contact sport.

  20. I see the Broflakes are out in force. Equality is coming no matter how many tears you cry. You’re on the wrong side of history.

  21. 15 MINUTES OF FAME , THEN BYE FELICIA !!!
    Don't they realise other than there families, nobody cares.
    Who are they again ?🌺

  22. what balls to politicise the parade. make more money if you slits wanna earn more. if you feel that strongly, go on strike. and nwxt time, negotiate a better deal.

  23. (READ BELOW)
    Actually the premier league in 2015 in football (soccer) was one of the most watched sport events ever, drawing in 700 million views world wide
    Liverpool vs united.
    The USMNT makes less revenue than the USWNT did, but it’s not the US Soccer association that’s giving all the men this money. It’s the World Cup

    In the last Woman’s World Cup, it generated nearly 73 million dollars. While the men’s made 4 BILLION DOLLARS. You got a piece just for being in the event. The women are squeeze money from something that doesn’t exist. They can’t give you a piece of money that they don’t make.

    The wage gap is a myth.

  24. Thanks New York for paying for a parade that most Americans could careless about. Especially after there leader disrespecting the American Flag and President Trump.

  25. Don’t hold your breath Meghan for an invitation to the White House. President Trump has more respect for the American Flag.
