Trump Nemesis Megan Rapinoe Gets New Talk Show, Lands AOC As First Guest

Trump nemesis Megan Rapinoe just got a new talk show and no one doubts she will go after Trump and his administration.

Do we really need more anti-Trump voices in a media environment today that is saturated with them?

Rapinoe landed New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as her first guest along with a few others in what is being billed as a: “critical conversation between some of America’s most innovative thought leaders during this significant time in our country’s history.”

 

From Sports Illustrated:

U.S. women’s national team star Megan Rapinoe will host a talk show special for HBO on Saturday, but she doesn’t plan to spend much time focusing on sports.

On Seeing America With Megan Rapinoe, the two-time Women’s World Cup winner will talk with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Netflix’s Patriot Act host Hasan Minhaj and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones about “the ongoing cultural conversation that has been taking place during this significant time in our country’s history.”

“It is an honor to host a show with a critical conversation between some of America’s most innovative thought leaders,” said Rapinoe. “I am so thankful to HBO for providing such a powerful platform for this important dialogue.”

The half-hour special, which is produced by HBO Sports, will air Saturday night at 10 p.m. ET. Rapinoe serves as an executive producer alongside HBO’s Peter Nelson and Bentley Weiner.
