  • -The women's World Cup ended last week.
  • Here with the highlights of the tournament,
  • please welcome one of our writers, Jenny Hagel, everybody!
  • [ Cheers and applause ]
  • -Hey, everybody!
  • The World Cup wrapped up las week, and it was incredible!
  • First, some teams played each other
  • and some qualified and some didn't -- yada, yada --
  • but the whole thing really kicked off
  • when U.S. player Megan Rapinoe
  • had this exchange with a reporter.
  • -Are you excited about going to the White House?
  • -[ Scoffs ] I'm not going to the [bleep] White House
  • [ Laughter ]
  • -Yeah. [ Cheers and applause ]
  • When that happened, lesbians were like, "I love her."
  • And straight women were like "Am I straight?"
  • [ Laughter ]
  • Then the team beat Thailand and Spain,
  • and then Megan Rapinoe sat out a game,
  • and everyone in America was like,
  • "Oh [bleep] is my girlfriend okay?"
  • [ Laughter ]
  • -Sorry, Jenny. This is great but I thought you were gonna
  • go over the highlights of the World Cup.
  • -Seth, I'm a lesbian. These are the highlights.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • Then the President tweeted
  • "Megan should win first before she talks.
  • Finish the job!"
  • And then Rapinoe scored two goals against Franc
  • and ran to the sidelines and did this.
  • And you know what the President said then
  • [ Cheers and applause ]
  • Yeah, you know what the President said then?
  • -What? -Jack [bleep]
  • 'cause that's the dopest comeback ever.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • Yeah. Last night, I tried to buy milk at a bodega,
  • and they were like, "We don't take debit cards,"
  • and I was like, "I have exact change, bitch!
  • [ Laughter, cheers, applause ]
  • Then, the U.S. beat Englan and the Netherlands
  • and became the world champ for the second time in a row
  • And not only that, Megan Rapinoe is here tonight to celebrate
  • [ Cheers and applause ]
  • It was a great ending for straight fans.
  • For lesbians, it was just the beginning.
  • Because then, things got very gay.
  • Player Kelley O'Hara ran into the stands
  • and kissed her girlfriend,
  • even though she wasn't eve officially out.
  • What a badass way to come out!
  • I came out in my apartment by whispering
  • to my straight roommate, "I think I like girls."
  • And then she said, "Okay,"
  • and then we just went back to watching "Dawson's Creek.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • Then, goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris
  • posted a picture of hersel wearing this.
  • Look at that outfit! [ Cheers and applause ]
  • It's like she's the CEO of a company that makes lesbians.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • And then, Rapinoe rolled up to an interview with Rachel Maddo
  • looking like some kind of sexy Tim Burton character.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • It's like Jack the Pumpkin Kin had a hot gay sister.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • But don't worry -- Rachel Maddow is a professional,
  • and she meets high-profile people all the time,
  • so you can totally count on he to keep her cool.
  • -You -- You, um...
  • You're really good at talking.
  • I'm still so nervous.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • -Look how flustered she got!
  • That's how other lesbians ac when they meet Rachel Maddow
  • Hoo! It was truly the gayest week America has ever seen
  • [ Laughter and cheers ]
  • Now, I just want to say, I kno the U.S. Women's National Team
  • is not just made up of lesbians,
  • and every team member's contributions to the World Cup
  • were incredible.
  • But it was a big deal this wee to watch the gay members
  • of the team be so out and prou
  • and unapologetic about who they are
  • and for the whole country to be so on board with it.
  • For once, Americans were into lesbians
  • but not in a creepy way.
  • [ Laughter, cheers, applause ]
  • I'm a lesbian, I'm a woman and I'm also Hispanic,
  • so there hasn't been a lot o great news for me lately.
  • But watching America go, in just a few years,
  • from this to this,
  • that makes me proud to be an American.
  • [ Cheers and applause ]
  • -Jenny Hagel, everybody!
