You have to love the French when it comes to annoying people and this time they’ve turned their attention to Donald Trump after his Twitter war with Megan Rapinoe.
The USA forward won the World Cup (again), scored in the final, won the World Cup Golden Boot for top scorer and the World Cup Golden Ball award for best player, all while being trolled by the most powerful man-child in the world who didn’t congratulate the team for two hours after the final whistle.
….in our Country’s history, and the poverty index is also best number EVER), leagues and teams love coming to the White House. I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job! We haven’t yet….

Playing on Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ catchphrase, leading sports publication L’Equipe went with an English language front cover that has been designed specifically to say ‘up yours’ to Donald Trump.
I’m sure I’m not alone in applauding this front page:
That it probably winds Piers Morgan up as well is just an added bonus:
The arrogance of this is breathtaking. Try winning it first, Ms Rapinoe – then inform us of your latest tiresome political activism. https://t.co/bgvqEViHkL
