Several women on the US soccer team on Monday turned away from the US flag as 98-year-old WWII veteran Pete DuPré played the national anthem on a harmonica.
The US Women’s soccer team is playing against Mexico in East Hartford, Connecticut in a pre-Olympic sendoff game before heading to Japan.
These women should not be allowed to represent the US at the Olympics.

ESPN showed the women disrespecting the US flag and the veteran, but the USWNT was careful not to show the women up close.
Thank you, Pete! 🇺🇸❤️ pic.twitter.com/BL7kgHbLfg
