"Abby said that she wanted her final World Cup to be like a fairytale. And I’m not sure she could have written a better ending: a world champion at last, draped in the Stars and Stripes, showing us all how far we’ve come -- on and off the field -- by sharing a celebratory kiss with her wife."
"This team taught all America’s children that 'playing like a girl' means you're a badass. (Laughter and applause.) Perhaps I shouldn’t have used that phrase. (Laughter.) Playing like a girl means being the best. It means drawing the largest TV audience for a soccer match –- men or women’s –- in American history. It means wearing our nation’s crest on your jersey, taking yourself and your country to the top of the world. That’s what American women do. That's what American girls do. That’s why we celebrate this team."
"Carli’s performance was so good that by the time the game was over, someone had changed her title on Wikipedia from 'Midfielder' to 'President of the United States.' (Laughter.) Which, by the way, the job is about to open up. (Laughter.) ... I guarantee you Carli knows more about being President than some of the folks who are running. (Laughter.) But that's a whole other -- (applause) -- that's a whole other topic of conversation."
