Rippon has been making nasty comments about Pence for weeks, now says he doesn’t what “his Olympic experience to be about Pence. But he made it about Pence. Pence had not said anything against Rippon. In fact, while Trump, Jr. is right to call out the hypocrisy, he’s wrong that Pence said nothing at all to Rippon. Pence did make one comment to Rippon – to be supportive of him. Classy. Unlike Rippon.
Via NY Post:
Donald Trump Jr. slammed US Olympic medalist Adam Rippon for the athlete’s criticism of Vice President Mike Pence’s position on gay rights.
The president’s eldest son was responding to a report that claimed Rippon — an openly gay figure skater — did not want his Olympic experience to be “about Mike Pence.”
“Really?” Trump Jr. retorted. “Then Perhaps you shouldn’t have spent the past few weeks talking about him. I haven’t heard him mention you once???”
Rippon, 28, helped the US win a bronze medal in figure skating on Sunday. He has been openly critical of Pence leading the US Olympic delegation.
