Members of the US Olympic Team represent our country on the biggest sports stage in the world, but one athlete says he will not under any circumstance meet the Present or the Vice President. Why? Because he’s gay and LGBTers hate America when it’s not run by a progressive douche. Seriously, this uptight gay athlete is taking something that is supposed to be apolitical and about competition and sportsmanship and turning into a bitchy Resistance moment.
USA Today reports on this latest liberal temper tantrum:
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 Tuesday night.
“You mean Mike Pence, the same Mike Pence that funded gay conversion therapy? I’m not buying it,” said Rippon.
Not buying what? The fact that Mike Pence is the VP or that he’s leading the US Olympic delegation? Either way, it’s a reality. Another reality is that Mike Pence never “funded” gay conversion therapy, so this guy is as full of shit as any anti-Trump idiot out there.
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 prefer not to meet Pence during the traditional meet-and-greet between the official delegation and U.S. athletes in the hours leading to the opening ceremony.
“If it were before my event, I would absolutely not go out of my way to meet somebody who I felt has gone out of their way to not only show that they aren’t a friend of a gay person but that they think that they’re sick. I wouldn’t go out of my way to meet somebody like that,” Rippon said.
He sure does like talking about people “going out of their way” doesn’t he? 3 times in 2 sentences is kind of weird, but he was just warming up the crazy machine:
“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. If he’s okay with what’s being said about people and Americans and foreigners and about different countries that are being called ‘shitholes,’ I think he should really go to church,” Rippon said.
Uh, Mike Pence does go to church and he is a devout Christian. I’m not sure what reality Rippon lives in, but generally devout Christians are against homosexuality. There is nothing contradictory about that at all.
“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,” added Rippon.
You mean like the values of sodomy and disrespecting your own country? I guess in liberal terms those are values but to normal people they seem pretty disgusting.
Always outspoken, Rippon said recently he will not go to the White House for a post-Olympic celebration hosted by President Trump. “I said no,” he reiterated Tuesday.
Congratulations Adam Rippon. You have officially alienated most Americans who watch sports and now have you own country rooting against you in the Olympics. Truth be told, he came in 4th in the US Olympic trials and is 28-years-old, so he probably doesn’t stand a chance, but now he’s got a good chunk of Americans hoping he falls on his ass.
And just in case you don’t already hate this guy, there is this:
“What makes America great is that we’re all so different. It’s 2018 and being an openly gay man and an athlete, that is part of the face of America now,” said Rippon.
Homosexuality is not even close to what makes this country great and being gay is not the face of America, but Adam Rippon thinks Mike Pence has no concept of reality.
