Junior Attacks Olympic Medalist Adam Rippon

The New York Post reports:

Donald Trump Jr. slammed US Olympic medalist Adam Rippon for the athlete’s criticism of Vice President Mike Pence’s position on gay rights. The president’s eldest son was responding to a report that claimed Rippon — an openly gay figure skater — did not want his Olympic experience to be “about Mike Pence.”

“Really?” Trump Jr. retorted. “Then Perhaps you shouldn’t have spent the past few weeks talking about him. I haven’t heard him mention you once???” Rippon, 28, helped the US win a bronze medal in figure skating on Sunday. He has been openly critical of Pence leading the US Olympic delegation.

As many informed Junior on Twitter, Pence HAS mentioned Rippon and directly tweeted at him last week.

    Someone remind Jr he’s a decade away from having his father’s hair.

    • Todd20036

      and a lifetime away from even looking as good as Trump.
      Rippon is talented, scrupulous, courageous, and damn is he cute!

      • And don’t forget about that booty

        • Todd20036

          He’s a figure skater. That’s all that needs to be said about his physique.

    • Prost Seattle

      I didn’t know a combover could be bequeathed. You JMG peeps teach me something knew each day!

  • another_steve

    Imagine the temptation – the pressure from their base – to go full-homophobic.

    Just imagine.

    • Todd20036

      Your comment implies they aren’t homophobic now.
      Actually, I can only imagine Trump calling Rippon a little faggot (or Pence doing so, or Trump Jr) out of earshot.
      It’s pretty obvious they’re thinking it.

      • another_steve

        Of course they’re homophobic. That’s a given. One can only imagine how Trump refers to LGBT people in private. But there’s been no overt gay-baiting from the White House. Anti-queer policy announcements, yes. But no overt gay-baiting.

        That intrigues me.

        • they will get there, and much worse, if not stopped. mark my words. they itch to lock us up, kill us, burn us at the stake…

          the only people left in the GOP today are true monsters. i think that’s pretty clear. not all of them have more than two functioning brain cells, and not all of them are into jeebus. but as a whole? it’s why i’ve been calling them fascists and meaning it.

          the LGBT community *must* lead the charge to stop these “people” on every front available. voting, protesting, raising money for effective orgs, etc. but now is not the time to be complacent.

        • Ranger One

          Maybe King Baby got bit, and never forgot it. His brat used this “they are just chatty Cathies” fuck you to us, who knows what daddy said.

        • Librarykid

          Pence takes care of that; creating the anti-gay policies and getting word out to the haters to make them happy. He is far more dangerous than 45.

      • Joe in PA

        I think that was sort of Steve’s point. The base WANTS them to not be ‘out of earshot’. But yeah, YOU KNOW that’s what Junior is thinking. Who knows about dad. Prolly.

        • another_steve

          Exactly, Joe. Trump’s friend and mentor, Roy Cohn, had zero problem using anti-queer epithets in public. But we don’t hear that from Trump or his surrogates.

          Something has changed in American society.

          It’s no longer “okay” for politicians to use that language in public.

          I would imagine the Dotard doesn’t even know who Adam is, afterall he hasn’t pledged his undying loyalty to the Dotard.

    • It Takes a Village, People

      That’s exactly what they’re doing. The art of dogwhistling.

    • Kruhn

      Shouldn’t this asshole be tending to his wife who suffered a major scare? Plus dickhead, Mike Pence signed into law a bill so homophobic, his business pals had to pressure him to back off.

      Adam Rippon has more integrity in that little pixie body of his than you, Uday.

    Happy V.D. Junior.
    Did you get a box of chocolate covered Tide Pods for your wife?

    • Snarkaholic

      Yes…dusted with “powdered sugar.”

    • Blake J Butler

      Check the breaker box of her house and she’d also find “black licorice”.

    • Christopher

      I’m sure Jr. has given her VD on more than one occasion.

      When I think of VD, I think of the Trumps.

      • William

        Only the best VD!

        • Christopher

          Of course!

          Nothing but the absolute best VD’s for this family! Ah hell, they can, and probably do, have all of the VD’s out there.

      He did, but he ate them himself.

  • Tawdry D’Tails

    Better put the burn unit on full alert, cause Uday just tried to pick a fight with the wrong Queen.

    • Charlie

      So true…and what’s it to Uday anyway? He has enough of his own going on with his pending indictment and all. And don’t get me started on that mysterious white powder sent to him and his stupid wife opening his mail…I think they sent that to themselves to show the world that they are ‘victims’ . They rushed her to the hospital because she was feeling dizzy(???) and it turned out to be harmless…DRAMA QUEENS at their best.

      • ClevelandJim

        He felt a little left out–he hasn’t seen his name in a headline in a week and a half.

  • safari

    The fun thing is that Adam’s manager said that Pence’s office has tried to schedule a meeting with him and Pence’s office is telling the press publicly that he hasn’t been because he got shot down.

        • another_steve

          Lol. 😉

          That movie is genuinely scary. It relied on psychological terror – not super-fancy 3-D effects.

          On the fear within.

          • ColdCountry

            My favorite suspense movie is Wait Until Dark. Talk about hair-raising with no special effects whatsoever!

          • another_steve

            Television-wise, the master of psychological terror was Rod Serling.

            Many of the classic “Twilight Zone” episodes had no special effects whatsoever, yet they were some of the creepiest and scariest TV programs ever produced.

          • ColdCountry

            Oh, my gods, YES! Open the curtains, there’s someone looking at you. Look in the rear view mirror, there are eyes – the stuff of my nightmares!

        • Mrs. Councillor Nugent

          I’d contend that the opening aerial footage spiraling in to the Dakota is among the best ever shot of NYC.

      “I’ve got eyes for you… I keep them in a jar inside my room” – Old 97’s

      • Kenster999

        Hey, another Old 97’s fan! They’re my favorite group these days. (And you’re referencing a line from a song on “Early Tracks”… well done!)

        For those who aren’t familiar with them, they consider themselves a cross between Johnny Cash and the Clash. The main lyricist is fantastic. Here are the lyrics from a song that I think a lot of folks here would like. It’s called “Jesus Loves You” and it’s about a self-admitted heathen trying to pick up a Christian girl at a bar:

        Jesus loves you more than I do
        Just because He doesn’t know you
        Not like I do

        Jesus says you’ll get salvation
        If you just keep on waitin’
        And readin’ the same book
        Over and over again

        Well, you can talk to Him all night
        But I’m right here
        He makes wine from water
        But I just bought you a beer

        You say Jesus loves you
        And I say what about me?
        Maybe Jesus loves you
        But where the hell is He?

        He’s got the power and the glory
        He’s got a pretty kick-ass story
        And what do I got?
        I got the hots for you

        He’s got the whole world in His hands
        I’ve got Lone Star in cans
        And I’m bringin’ one over to you
        And I’m sittin’ down next to you

        I’m not discountin’
        The Sermon on the Mount an’
        Oh, when I was little you know
        They dunked me in the fountain
        They told me I was born again
        But since then I’ve been torn an’
        When I think about making love with you
        I know it would be more than sin

        I’m a real person
        A real live person
        You could do a whole lot worse than
        Ending up with me then
        Even though I’m a heathen
        Not everybody out there is
        Connecting like we’ve been

        I’ll take you to the river
        Let me take you to the river
        I will deliver you

        Pray to Him all night
        But I’m your man
        He can walk on water
        But I’ll kiss you on the sand

        You say Jesus loves you
        And I say what about me?
        Maybe Jesus loves you
        But where the hell is He?

        You say Jesus loves you
        I say what about me?
        Maybe Jesus loves you
        But where the hell is He?

        Jesus loves you more than I do
        Just because He doesn’t know you
        Not like I do

    has Hillary ever mentioned Trump Junior??? Because he mentions her several times a week.

    • Not that I am aware of.
      There is something very classy and very Presidential holding back and not firing back at people who are obviously not accomplished and way, way below you in stature, accomplishment, and intelligence.
      It would be like Eleanor Roosevelt (who I think is the First Lady who is the closest to Hillary in terms of her own accomplishments) firing back at one of the Eisenhower sons for criticizing her, which I do not think they ever did. The only thing Dwight Eisenhower as President ever did to her was to not reappoint her to the United Nations as a member of the U.S. delegation (which is understandable — she was not a Republican!). He simply ignored her. Eleanor of course is responsible for the U.N. passing The Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. It would not have passed without her clout and persistence.
      I expect Hillary will hit the campaign trail — in a reserved way- for any Democrat who requests her later this year, stay neutral in 2020 primaries, attend the 2020 convention and perhaps make a speech at it if asked, and campaign in the autumn of 2020 if asked — but going negative on anyone (except Trump of course) is simply not what a former first lady and secretary of state does. It is not Presidential!

  • Hey Jr! Pull your diaper up over your face and shut up!

    What does Uday contribute to society? Carbon dioxide?

    Donald Trump, Jr.: One of DJT’s aborted fetuses who got away. Sad.

  • jimbo65

    Hey Fredo. How about you just stfu about things you have no business weighing in on.

  • juanjo54

    So the kid who has been riding his daddy’s coattails his entire life is throwing shade on an Olympic medal winner?

    • Etranger

      They have a lot of disdain for people who have done something with their lives!

      • prixator

        Something honest with their lives.

    Does Don Jr. have a legitimate security clearance?

    • -M-

      He’s supposed to be running the ‘business’ that his dad still owns and profits from and not involvedl in politics.

      /Supposed to be.

  • Shouldn’t Mini-Don be off somewhere trying to finance boondoggles?

  • greenmanTN

    He’s a fool for going up against Rippon. From what I can tell, and quoted from a different context, “Honey Badger don’t give a shit.” He WILL tell you what he thinks and you ain’t gonna like it.

  • Robincho

    “I haven’t heard him mention you once” is a statement, not a question. So what’s with not one, not two, but THREE question marks? You fucking idiot fuck…

  • Gianni

    Dear Jr., Just the fact that you are our nutty Dear Leader’s son should be more than enough reason for you to just STFU.

  • Whatever. Jr. has never so much as had a summer job that wasn’t for his dad. He’s never accomplished anything on his own. So for him to criticize an Olympic medalist is hilarious. And pathetic. Sad, as his father would say.

    • #DJTK5F

      One wonders whether he had to let Donald Sr. sexually assault his wife before they consummated their marriage. Droit de papá.

  • yes b’y
  • infmom

    Junior’s just peeved that he’ll never look that good in spandex.

    • #DJTK5F

      The closest he’d come would be covering his head in a spantard.

    • Ann Kah

      No, that’s not an image I want to have stuck in my mind…

  • ClevelandJim

    Omg, so FUCKING stupid! I don’t understand how he and Qusay are able to function in the world day to day. There isn’t one damn person in that entire family who is able to issue a tweet or statement wthout completely embarrassing themselves.
