If not liking Trump causes you to diss your country, it means that there was something wrong with you that has nothing to do with Trump.

The co-captain of the United States Women’s national soccer team, Megan Rapinoe, told Yahoo Sports, “I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart. I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again,” boasting that she is “a walking protest when it comes to the Trump administration,” because of “everything I stand for.” She added, “I feel like it’s kind of defiance in and of itself to just be who I am and wear the jersey, and represent it. Because I’m as talented as I am, I get to be here, you don’t get to tell me if I can be here or not. So it’s kind of a good ‘F you’ to any sort of inequality or bad sentiments that the [Trump] administration might have towards people who don’t look exactly like him. Which, God help us if we all looked like him. Scary. Really scary. Ahh, disturbing.”

Things were different in 2011 when Rapinoe sang “Born in the USA” into a microphone during a FIFA World Cup qualifying match. But in 2016, after former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick started kneeling during the national anthem, Rapinoe imitated him, first before a Reign match and then before a game against Thailand. Rapinoe, who recently became the first openly-gay woman to pose for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, stated at the time she was kneeling, “I know what it means to look at the flag and not have it protect all of your liberties.”
