Openly gay Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon recently ripped VP Mike Pence, accusing him of funding “gay conversion therapy.”
From Daily Wire:
Openly gay Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon is being hailed as a hero for refusing to meet with Vice President Mike Pence, whom he accused of “funding gay conversion therapy,” despite Pence’s repeated efforts to respond to Rippon’s claims and clear the air.
USA Today called the interaction a “bizarre battle,” and implied that Pence is locked in a feud with an Olympic athlete, even though it seems it’s Rippon who would prefer to stand by an incorrect statement rather than sit down with the high profile official he’s accused — wrongly, according to Pence’s office — of supporting a horrific practice involving electroshock therapy.
“You mean Mike Pence, the same Mike Pence that funded gay conversion therapy? I’m not buying it,” Rippon told reporters when Pence was announced as the administration’s choice for top Olympic delegate.
Enter Donald Trump Jr. who delivered a hard right cross to Rippon, via The Hill:
Donald Trump Jr. slammed U.S. Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon on Twitter after the Olympian said he did not want his Olympic experience to be about Vice President Pence.
“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. said in a tweet on Wednesday.
