YESTERDAY, PRESIDENT BARACK Obama welcomed the US women’s national soccer team to the White House to congratulate them on their World Cup victory earlier this year.

Huffington Post reports that Obama told the team that they had “inspired girls to dream bigger — and by the way, inspired millions of boys to look at girls differently, which is just as important.”

He then delivered the slickest line in history.

‘Playing like a girl’ means you’re a badass.

Damned straight.
