This U.S. Olympic athlete just disrespected Trump for all the world to see
Gold medal winner Lindsey Vonn is no stranger to the spotlight.
As her fellow American athletes continue training for the upcoming Winter Olympics, Vonn has also been hitting the media circuit.
But how she responded to this question posed by a CNN reporter will leave you shaking your head.
In recent interview, Vonn was asked the leading question, “how will it feel competing at an Olympic games for a United States whose president is Donald Trump?”
Away from the slopes, Vonn also appears willing to put her head above the parapet and speak out about US politics.
“I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony,” she added.
“I want to represent our country well. I don’t think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”
And Vonn revealed she wouldn’t accept an invitation to the White House if she were to win gold at Pyeongchang.
“Absolutely not,” said Vonn. “No. But I have to win to be invited. No actually I think every US team member is invited so no I won’t go.
Vonn has now joined a growing list of professional athletes including NBA star Steph Curry who have declined invitations to the White House.
President Trump first ruffled the feathers of this class of coddled millionaires by calling out their disrespect for our national anthem by kneeling for our national anthem before NFL games.
More athletes than ever have taken to Twitter to attack President Trump.
And our left-wing national media has loved nothing more but to prop them up as role models for American children.
But now there is a backlash by everyday Americans by the over-politicization of every aspect of life.
Americans have proven that they don’t want to mix politics and sports.
