Fed-Up Don Jr Crushes Gay Olympian for Attacking Christian Mike Pence

Share

Not long after openly gay United States figure skater Adam Rippon insulted Vice President Mike Pence for his Christian faith, a fed-up Donald Trump Jr. took to social media to absolutely crush Rippon and his criticisms.

As reported by the Daily Caller, Rippon was quoted in The Hill as saying he didn’t want the Winter Olympics in South Korea to be “about Mike Pence.”

Oddly enough, though, every time the bronze medalist got in front of a camera, all he wanted to do was make political statements criticizing Pence for his Christian views and alleged objections to homosexuality.

Trump Jr. fired off a tweet in response to The Hill article featuring Rippon’s quotes — and mocking the skater for saying “the Olympics are about Olympic competition,” not any political figures.

“Really? Then Perhaps you shouldn’t have spent the past few weeks talking about him. I haven’t heard him mention you once???” Trump Jr. tweeted Tuesday.

Pence has not commented publicly on Rippon’s remarks.

In an interview published Feb. 7 with USA Today Sports, Rippon was asked about Pence being at the Olympics and how he felt about that.

“You mean Mike Pence, the same Mike Pence that funded gay conversion therapy?” Rippon said.

Do you agree with Trump Jr.'s defense of Pence's Christian faith?

The USA Today article also noted that Rippon refused a meeting with Pence after the vice president reached out and offered to have a sit down with the figure skater.

“I don’t want my Olympic experience being about Mike Pence,” Rippon said.

He added: “I have no problem about what I’ve said because I stand by it, but I think right now the Olympics are about Olympic competition.”

The vice president, besides being more mature than the 28-year-old Rippon, has more class, too. He even sent the athlete a tweet after the USA Today article appeared, saying he supported him and wished the entire United States Olympics team luck in the Games.

Guess what? No response from Rippon.

As Trump Jr. pointed out, Rippon has been telling anyone who will listed to him that he doesn’t want the Olympic Games to be about Pence, yet he can’t seem to stop talking about all the vice president.

Rippon says he doesn’t want to any controversy with Pence, then he rejects a meeting with the vice president who likely just wanted to tell him face-to-face he supported him.

He claims he doesn’t want to make the Olympics political, then tells the Daily Mail that he would reject an invitation to the White House if one were to be offered.

Americans like patriots representing them at the Olympics. Rippon is apparently nothing more than a liberal hypocrite. Trump Jr. had every right to rip him apart.
