Soccer star Megan Rapinoe explained her endorsement of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president during a Friday evening interview with CNN’s Don Lemon.
“Elizabeth Warren picking up a big endorsement today from Megan Rapinoe, the soccer star and social activist who was named Sports Illustrated‘s 2019 ‘Person of the Year’ earlier this week,” Lemon reported.
Lemon played a clip of Rapinoe talking to Warren that was posted earlier in the day on Twitter.
I truly believe the best things in life are a result of being bold and being real. 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 @ewarren pic.twitter.com/9hX3gQYjvo

Lemon said, “I’m sure every candidate would love to have had your endorsement, why are you team Warren?
“I like her — she’s fire,” Rapinoe replied.
“I mean I have been tracking the whole thing obviously for a while, but honestly I think we need — as I said in, the video — I think we need really big, bold, brave progressive policy,” she explained.
She also offered her thoughts on President Donald Trump.
“So for me, I just feel like we cannot focus too much on Trump, obviously he’s a crazy force happening, but … we need to show people there is another path forward,” Rapinoe said.
“He should be impeached. It’s clear he uses the office to enrich himself and his family and the people around him, he abuses power,” she added. “For me it’s impeachment for sure.”

Wild poll out of Texas finds Black Lives Matter more popular than the NRA in the Lone Star State
I'm a strong believer in paying attention to the polling averages rather than obsessing over individual polls, but rules are meant to be broken and a survey released on Sunday by The Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas, Tyler has some internal numbers that are worth digging into. So with the caveat that it's a single poll that's subject to error and offers only a snapshot in time, let's take a peek under the hood.
Most reports focus on the topline numbers, which have Joe Biden leading Donald Trump by five points, 48-43. That's somewhat worse for the incumbent than RealClearPolitics average, which shows the state in a dead tie with 45 percent of the vote for each candidate. But this isn't a crazy outlier; Quinnipiac had Biden up by four points in its early June survey, and the former Vice President has led the incumbent by smaller margins in several other recent polls.
RNC’s attack on Joe Biden backfires – internet cheers old photo of Joe holding his young son in his arms
RNC Rapid Response Director Steve Guest on Monday tweeted a photo of a young Joe Biden, cradling in his arms either Hunter Biden or his now-late son, Beau Biden. In the decades-old image the young child is wearing a Washington Redskins hat.
Guest appended a question to his tweet: "Hey Joe Biden are you still a Redskins fan?"
Early Monday the Redskins announced they are "retiring" their team's racist name, amid tremendous pressure from the left.
The attack backfired, as many on social media fell for the endearing photo of the young U.S. Senator in a warm, very personal moment with his child.
