Yesterday, America put on what might be the most impressive performance on the world stage of any country, ever. In their opening match of the 2019 World Cup, the U.S. national team set a record for the most goals ever in a World Cup game, shellacking Thailand 13-0.

It was a thoroughly unbelievable performance, and for 90 minutes, the U.S. was the most dominating force the soccer world had ever seen.

America! Kicking butt! Showing up other countries!

You might think that modern conservative men, the most pompous, bloviating nationalists America’s ever seen, would be all about it. Except that this is the Women’s World Cup, the version of the sport where the men don’t play.

So what wins out: Jingoism or misogyny? Here’s what they all had to say.

Ben Shapiro:

Nothing

President Donald Trump:

Nothing

Matt Walsh:

Nothing

Charlie Kirk:

Nothing, but he did take time out yesterday to mention how the left hates conservative women.

Benny Johnson:

Nothing, but he hasn’t tweeted in over a week.

Dave Rubin, classical liberal:

Nothing.

Jordan Peterson:

Nothing, but he’s Canadian so we can cut him a bit of slack.

Dan Bongino:

Nothing.

Seb Gorka:

Nah.

Prager University’s Will Witt who once called rape “hilarious“:

Something! But only to bash the women’s desire for equal pay, which totally has to do with inflexible positions on the economics of soccer and not his attitude toward women.

Jack Posobiec:

Nope.

Dan Crenshaw

Nope.

Ryan Fournier, Chairman of Students for Trump:

Nope.

Kurt Schlichter

Only to whine about about something that doesn’t affect him.

Stephen Miller aka redsteeze:

Nope.

Oh well. Maybe they will tune in when the U.S. plays Chile on Sunday.
