Though he waits his remarks, the 28- year-old does not desire his fight to eclipse the Olympics itself. As reported by CNN, he informed press reporters at an interview in Pyeongchang, South Korea on Tuesday:
“I don’t want my Olympic experience being about Mike Pence.”
That exact same day, Donald Trump Jr. captured wind of Rippon’s remarks and composed the following nasty tweet:
Sorry to rupture your bubble Donnie Jr., however Pence HAS openly spoken about Rippon this month! In a social networks message composed recently, the VP stated:
@Adaripp I desire you to understand we are FOR YOU. Do not let phony news sidetrack you. I take pride in you and ALL OF OUR GREAT professional athletes and my only wish for you and all of #TeamUSA is to bring house the gold. Go get ’em!
— Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) February 8, 2018
Sadly, Donald Trump‘s boy isn’t really the only conservative figure to slam the professional athlete!
Earlier this month, Bristol Palin composed a post where she discreetly knocks Rippon for choosing not to meet Pence. She meals:
“The cool thing for athletes to do now, apparently, is to snub any invitations to the White House in order to take a stand against the Donald Trump administration… This is a great effort on behalf of the Vice President to reach out with kindness. In today’s crazy political climate, it’s nice to be kind — even if we have different political views. I hope one day Adam and the Vice President have a chance to sit down together. In the meantime, I hope Adam — and all of Team USA — do a great job representing our nation well!”
However, the figure skater seems absolutely unbothered by the drama! He composed on Wednesday:
With whatever going on in the media about me this Valentine’s Day I do not desire individuals to obtain sidetracked and forget how gorgeous I am (on the outdoors)
