It's an honor to be a members of the US Olympic Team and represent the country on the biggest sports stage in the world. But one figure skater has decided to use the occasion to throw a gay diva temper tantrum and says he will not under any circumstance meet the Vice President Pence, who is set to lead the U.S. Olympic delegation to South Korea. This uptight little Rump Ranger is taking something that is supposed to be apolitical and about competition and sportsmanship and turning into a bitchy Trump resistance moment.
From USA Today:
Adam Rippon, the 2016 U.S. men’s figure skating champion who is believed to be the first openly gay U.S. Winter Olympian, criticized the White House’s selection of Vice President Mike Pence to lead the 2018 U.S. Olympic delegation to South Korea in a phone interview with USA TODAY Sports.
Rippon, 28, who was selected to his first Olympic team earlier this month after finishing fourth at the U.S. national championships, said that he would not meet Pence during the traditional meet-and-greet between the official delegation and U.S. athletes in the hours leading to the opening ceremony.Rippon didn't hesitate at all to show he regularly has his head up his ass too:
"I don’t think he has a real concept of reality. To stand by some of the things that Donald Trump has said and for Mike Pence to say he’s a devout Christian man is completely contradictory."
"I don’t think the current administration represents the values that I was taught growing up. Mike Pence doesn’t stand for anything that I really believe in."Of what values do you speak? Sodomy and disrespecting your own country? I guess in liberal terms those are values, but to normal people they seem pretty disgusting. Rippon also said he will skip the White House post-Olympic celebration hosted by President Trump. I'm sure The Don will be Okay with that, he prefers to be around winners anyway.
It will be interesting to see if NBC Sports Olympic skating commentator Tara Lipinski and her embarrassingly clownish effeminate appendage, Johnny Weir choose to fawn a little extra over Rippon and his feminine out-fits. Truth be told, he placed 4th in the US Olympic trials and is 28-years-old, so he could be just an also-ran. And if he doesn't shut his mouth he'll have a good chunk of Americans viewers just waiting to see him spectacularly falls on his ass.
Thank You MJA for the Linkage![USA Today]
