Donald Trump Jr Criticizes Adam Rippon's 'Olympic Experience Not About Pence' Comment

Olympian Adam Rippon Dedicates His Medal To His Mom… But Mainly Reese Witherspoon!

Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon has been all over the news lately for his sometimes hilarious comments about everything from Vice President Mike Pence, Olympics kisses and athletes eyebrows so it's no shocker that Rippon would take the opportunity to show his personality on the podium.

"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".

Rippon said his comments about Pence have resulted in extra attention to his teammates.

'If he's OK with what's being said about people and Americans and foreigners and about different countries that are being called "s**tholes", I think he should really go to church'.

'I don't think he has a real concept of reality.

Egyptian army Puts militant death toll in Sinai at 38
The operation involves troops from the Egyptian air force, navy and ground forces as well as the police and border guards. The success or failure of the military's latest push will most likely not affect the result of the March 26-28 election.

'You mean Mike Pence, the same Mike Pence that funded gay conversion therapy?' said Rippon in that interview. Pence tried to set up a meeting with Rippon on January 17, which the figure skater turned down, reported USA Today.

Rippon also very publicly refused to visit with Pence after the vice president's staff reached out to arrange a private meeting. During an interview with USA Today last month, he expressed his distaste at the decision to send Pence as the leader of the US delegation to Pyeongchang.

It is important to mention the rumor, that Pence supports the controversial procedure, began when a statement from his 2000 congressional campaign website surfaced, which read: "Resources should be directed toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior".

He was quickly cut down to size by Brennan however, who stated:' I see Donald Trump Jr. has joined conversation. Speaking to the New York Times, Adam shared details on how he kept so slim - and apparently, his story is not isolated as many athletics feel the pressure to keep thin. "I haven't heard him mention you once???" "But I would like to do something to help my community", he added.

"I worked really hard to get where I am", Rippon said. "And over the past year, when he broke his foot, I was sobbing when he said, 'Mom, you've got to believe that this has happened for something better to come in the future.' And when he said that, I just knew he would be here and something like this would happen". And I hope that in the process of me sharing who I am with everyone that they can find their voice, too.
