A member of the U.S. men’s figure skating team got his leotard in a twist because Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to lead the U.S. Olympic delegation to South Korea in February.
Adam Rippon, the 2016 U.S. men’s figure skating, pitched a particularly nasty hissy fit — telling USA Today he would prefer not to shake the vice president’s hand before the opening ceremony.
Mr. Rippon is believed to be the first openly gay Winter Olympian — and he took great umbrage at the vice president’s devout Christian faith. “You mean Mike Pence, the same Mike Pence that funded gay conversion therapy?” Rippon snarled. “I’m not buying it.”
Adam Rippon may know how to land a triple axel, but when it comes to civility and grace, he’s skating on thin ice.
