At the White House today, President Obama paid tribute to the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, for their triumph at this year’s Women’s World Cup, and for presenting a positive example to young girls — and to all Americans.

“This team taught all America’s children that ‘playing like a girl’ means you’re a badass,” Obama declared.

“Perhaps I shouldn’t have used that phrase,” he added. “Playing like a girl means being the best.”

No, please, Mr. President — you had it just right the first time.
