President Obama, who today is hosting Chilean President Michelle Bachelet, congratulated the “Chilean National Football Team” for it’s performance in its match, which it lost, with Brazil:
Let me say, first of all, congratulations to the Chilean National Football Team for an outstanding showing at the World Cup. I know it was a tough loss, but it also showed the incredible skill and talent of the Chilean team. This is as well, I think, as it’s ever done against a very tough Brazilian team on their home turf. And so congratulations to them.
First of all, I hope Chileans are duly shocked at the “everyone deserves a medal” American mentality. The Chilean team lost a close match they could have won. I doubt Chileans see much silver lining in their elimination in the first round of the finals.
And secondly, it’s soccer. Not football. Soccer. Stop sucking up. We play soccer here.
This is football:
This is soccer:
Okay? Enough said.
