The United States women's national football team might not have been everyone's cup of tea but it's hard not to admire what they achieved at the World Cup in France.

Not only are they really good at football. having won the tournament for the second time running but they also became figureheads for standing up against Donald Trump and the politics that he promotes.

As you can imagine, their success and stance against the president didn't sit very well with the presenters on Fox News, who generally speaking seem to criticise anyone that even slightly disagrees with him (apart from this host who seems to regularly school Trump).

Thanks to the progressive watchdog group, Media Matters for America, a two-minute compilation of newsreaders from the network endlessly berating the team, especially Megan Rapinoe, for apparently disrespecting the United States.

The clip features the usual suspects such as Laura Ingraham, Brian Kilmeade, Jesse Watters, Geraldo Rivera and Stuart Varney all doing their absolute worst to try and ridicule the team.

Watch it in the video below.
