Gay US Olympian Doesn't Want Pyeongchang Experience to 'Be About Mike Pence'

Gay US Olympian Doesn't Want Pyeongchang Experience to 'Be About Mike Pence'

Sunny Hostin said she found it "interesting" Omarosa said "Jesus tells Mike Pence what to say", and added that when she went to law school in IN, the former governor was "a hated figure there".

"I don't think I would have stood either", McCain said.

"I thought that Mike Pence said that it was inappropriate to make political statements at sporting events", she said. Whoopi complained that Pence didn't not show North Korea their due "respect", while Hostin compared Pence's actions to the National Football League anthem protests.

"And what we typically see from the left, if they don't understand something, is they have a tendency to try to despise it or mock it", Barnette added.

Top U.S officials have expressed openness to dialogue with North Korea, while reaffirming commitment to the U.S.' maximum pressure campaign against the regime.

Rippon, who is gay, was part of the US team that won bronze in the team figure skating Monday, but has repeatedly been quizzed by reporters in Pyeongchang, South Korea, about comments he made that apparently criticized Pence.

Perhaps Trump Jr. missed these tweets, and Pence's call to cheer on all members of Team USA.

"You mean Mike Pence, the same Mike Pence that funded gay conversion therapy?" I don't think he's that insane. "I'm not buying it", he said, ABC News reported.

United States Figure Skaters Vincent Zhou and Adam Rippon speak to the media during a press conference at the Main Press Centre on February 13, 2018 in Pyeongchang-gun, South Korea.

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.

'Resources should be directed toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior'.

However, with the controversial, over-the-top nature of the Trump administration and its unpopular actions and standing on societal issues, the obligatory visit to the White House has not been a smooth process. "Jesus talks back. What concerns me is how long is the conversation with Jesus". I got to where I am for working really hard. Also, Pence absolutely mentioned Rippon, tweeting about him February 7'.
