When it comes to attacks from the President on Twitter, no one is safe.

Trump unleashed a firestorm of criticism directed at USWNT star Megan Rapinoe Wednesday after she told reporters she wouldn't visit the White House if her team wins the 2019 Women's World Cup.

"I'm not going to the fucking White House," Rapinoe told Eight by Eight. "We're not going to be invited," the co-captain said in a video from behind the scenes of a cover story shoot for the soccer magazine.


"[Trump] tries to avoid inviting a team that might decline. Or, like he did when the Warriors turned him down, he'll claim they hadn't been invited in the first place," she said in an interview with the magazine.

Eight by Eight shared the video on Twitter Tuesday, which according to the New York Times was recorded in January when the photoshoot took place. The issue was recently released in May and an online version of the story appeared on the publication's website in June.

Not one to let insults slide, Trump took to his favorite social media platform to respond to Rapinoe's comments with a series of nonsensical replies.

In his swift response, Trump didn't bother checking to make sure he was tagging the correct Megan Rapinoe. Instead of tagging the soccer player, he instead tagged another Megan Rapinoe (though the president has since corrected his tweets).

Fortunately, the "other" Megan Rapino took it in stride. Finding her Twitter overwhelmed by people who'd clicked her account after reading Trump's tweet, she decided to let the world know just what she thought of the president's taking the real Rapinoe to task:

Rapinoe's responses quickly went viral, with Twitter users praising her clap back.




This isn't the first time Trump has mistakenly tagged the wrong person during one is his Twitter outbursts. In January, he tagged a high school girl in a tweet in which he intended to call out Fox News reporter Gillian Turner.

Like Rapinoe, the mistakenly identified Jillian Turner took the incident in stride.

"Like how does that even happen," she wrote in another tweet. "One in a million chance."

Usually the greatest fear after a wild night of partying isn't what you said that you might regret, but how you'll look in your friends' tagged photos. Although you left the house looking like a 10, those awkward group selfies make you feel more like a 5, prompting you to wonder, "Why do I look different in pictures?"

It's a weird phenomenon that, thanks to selfies, is making people question their own mirrors. Are pictures the "real" you or is it your reflection? Have mirrors been lying to us this whole time??

The answer to that is a bit tricky. The good news is that there's a big chance that Quasimodo-looking creature that stares back at you in your selfies isn't an accurate depiction of the real you. But your mirror isn't completely truthful either.
