GMA #USWNT # Rapinoe # AlexMorgan #RoseLavelle #CarliLloyd #Soccer # WorldCup WATCH FULL Screw Equal Pay , pay these women MORE! The men aren't comparable to this team. Megan Rapinoe is more of a Patriot than Orange trashcan will ever be in his miserable, pathetic life.

Having proven to be the best of the best, Kimmel emphasized that he had one golden question for the teammates: "Why are you guys so much better than everyone else?" "It's a good question," Morgan responded, as the two then laughed off the late-night host's jab at the men's soccer team failing to be as successful as them.

Kimmel also praised the team for bringing a positive moment for the country, to which the soccer players agreed. "I think success just drown out all the other bad things," Morgan said.

Team co-captains Rapinoe and Morgan, who won an ESPY award on Wednesday for best female athlete, also talked about equal pay during the interview, which they have become outspoken about. After Kimmel emphasized that they should earn more than they make, Rapinoe thanked the late-night host and suggested he join them in their efforts. "We're taking you to mediation with us," Rapinoe said. "We are working towards that but I also think our fans and everyone is speaking for us," Morgan added.

Women's World Cup 2019: Megan Rapinoe says she'll be ready for final after sitting out vs. England with injury Rapinoe explained what it was like to watch from the bench when many expected her to be on the pitch. "It's just energy and confidence," Rapinoe said. "I feel like when we're on the bench that's all it is. You need to just be hyped for the team and where you can give those little tidbits but really give that energy. It's not all the time they're coming over but there's VAR decisions and you know breaks in the game and just giving that energy and getting those vibes out there." Rapinoe gave the U.S.

Earlier this month, Rapinoe, who has been vocal about the Trump administration's policies toward the LGBTQ community, gained visibility for expressing during an interview that she would not want to visit the "f–ing White House" if her team won the World Cup. This caused the President to respond on social media, declaring that the soccer star should "never disrespect our country, the White House, or our flag."

Rapinoe's partner, WNBA star Sue Bird, also got involved in the spat when she published a blog entitled "So the President F*cking Hates My Girlfriend," criticizing Trump for the verbal attack. Bird also noted that Rapinoe will not let the outburst faze her. So far, the soccer team has accepted an invitation to visit Congress in Washington D.C. and celebrate their triumph. It remains unclear if they will visit the White House.

Though Rapinoe didn't comment about Trump, Kimmel explained that he had a solution should they not visit the White House. "I didn't "want to cheat you of the experience of visiting the White House," the late-night host said, before directing their attention to the other side of the stage. As the curtain rose, a set up of a mock Oval Office stood with a tray of "5,000 chicken nuggets" and "a couple of actors pretending to be Secret Service guys" appeared leaving Rapinoe and Morgan to burst into laughter.
