Here's your daily dose of cute from gay Olympian Adam Rippon

Here's your daily dose of cute from gay Olympian Adam Rippon

Rippon helped Team USA earn a bronze medal in the figure skating team competition this week but there was some controversy over the scoring as he placed lower in the judge's eyes than Russian skater Mikhail Kolyada and Canadian skater Patrick Chan (who both fell during their performances).

'This is a great effort on behalf of the Vice President to reach out with kindness. Earlier this month, Rippon told the BBC that he doubts "somebody like me would be welcome there".

Rippon's mother later said her son did not actually "refuse" to meet with Pence, but instead, did not wish to do so before he competed at the event.

Rippon has always been vocal with his criticisms of the Vice President.

Despite the VP's conciliatory replies to Rippon and his assurances that he supports all U.S. Olympians equally, Rippon continued attacking Pence throughout his time in South Korea.


Rippon was thrust into the spotlight for being one of the first openly gay athletes to take a stand at the Olympics. He was like, 'You're everywhere right now.' I was like, 'I know, I'm like America's sweetheart.' And he just laughed in my face because what you think of as sort of the American people embracing, I don't really think I, on paper, really embody much of any of that sort of perceived persona.

Both Rippon and Kenworthy have made it clear that they have no interest in chatting with the former in governor, who while running for Congress in 2000 posted a controversial comment on his campaign statement.

President Trump also rescinded a White House invite to Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors around this same time.

Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon said Tuesday he does not want his Olympic debut to turn into a feud with Vice President Mike Pence, despite previously vocally criticizing his politics. "Then Perhaps you shouldn't have spent the past few weeks talking about him".

He was quickly cut down to size by Brennan however, who stated:' I see Donald Trump Jr. has joined conversation. "I haven't heard him mention you once???" Also, Pence absolutely mentioned Rippon, tweeting about him February 7'.
