It's Adam Rippon's world, and we're just living in it

It's Adam Rippon's world, and we're just living in it

Another recent example involving Vice President Mike Pence and 2018 Winter Olympics figure skater Adam Rippon once again shows a general consensus among modern athletes towards the very peculiar administration. "And that's sort of given my skating a greater goal", Rippon said.

Adam Rippon is supremely comfortable in his own skin, often thanking his single mom, Kelly, and his open-minded friends for fostering a world that welcomed him just the way he was.

Rippon continued by saying he didn't believe Pence had a "real concept of reality" and cited Pence's outward Christianity conflicting with the actions of his runningmate Donald Trump.

"This might be my first Olympics, but it's not my first rodeo", Rippon said.

Rippon told CNN that he still stands by his comments but wants to just focus on the competition right now. And if you somehow missed it, you really need to watch right now; I promise you'll be glad you did.




This news clip has resurfaced of Rippon talking about his Olympic dreams - when he was 13.

However, a spokesperson for Pence has denied this is a reference to gay conversion therapy, and also rejected Rippon's claim that the Olympian had turned down an invitation to meet with the vice president, stating no such meeting had been offered. "It's the same now as it was in my day, and I think it's all figure skaters", former champion skater Brian Boitano told the Times.

Because of this, the other Adam Rippon has received some digital correspondence from people wanting to let him know that they aren't big fans of him. Pence led the USA delegation at the opening of the Winter Olympics. I hope one day Adam and the Vice President have a chance to sit down together. It helped the US earn a bronze medal in the Pyeongchang Olympics event.

"In so many articles it's always "gay Olympian Adam Rippon" and I wear that title really proudly, but I'm not a gay Olympian". "And now I'm an Olympic medalist and I happen to be gay". "I've known Adam for a long time now, so not only to get a team medal, but to get it with him is just incredible". I say it every five minutes. "And then I was like, 'Okay, that's it for my public message, you may go back to bed'".

"The REAL one for I did for TV says "my mom" but, like, I needed this one for myself because it was the first thing that actually popped in my head and I thought I was so amusing".
