Adam Rippon v. Mike Pence
Over the past few weeks, animosity rose between Adam Rippon and Vice President of the United States Mike Pence.
According to reports, Rippon refused to meet with the politician in the run-up to the games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Rippon has previously denounced Pence’s poor record on LGBTI rights. He also refused to go to the White House to meet Donald Trump.
So Pence tweeted Rippon to assure him he’s on his side.
He wrote: ‘I want you to know we are FOR YOU. Don’t let fake news distract you. I am proud of you and ALL OF OUR GREAT athletes and my only hope for you and all of #TeamUSA is to bring home the gold. Go get ‘em!’
Rippon did not respond.
