Bristol Palin just stuck up for the vice president in a big way.
Liberals were gleeful when Olympic figure skater openly bashed Mike Pence and rejected a chance to meet him.
“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,” Palin wrote on her blog.
“The most recent snub comes from an Olympic figure skater named Adam Rippon. Rippon is one of the first openly gay figure skaters to qualify for the Winter Olympics.”
Rippon refused to meet with the vice president because of his views on homosexuality. Palin is disgusted by this attitude. Team USA represents all of us. An Olympian should be able to put aside political considerations.
“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!” Palin finished.
Rippon’s attack was a lot harsher. He brutally ripped into Pence, critiquing his faith and his intelligence.
“To stand by some of the things that Donald Trump has said and for Mike Pence to say he’s a devout Christian man is completely contradictory,” Rippon said.
“If he’s OK with what’s being said about people and Americans and foreigners and about different countries that are being called “s**tholes,” I think he should really go to church.”
Pence is a devout Christian.
“You mean Mike Pence, the same Mike Pence that funded gay conversion therapy?” Rippon continued. “I don’t think he has a real concept of reality. I’m not buying it.”
Pence handled Rippon’s attack in stride. Palin is right; modern athletes get a kick out of disrespecting the current administration.
