Although some were wishing to keep politics out of the Olympics, not everyone feels the same. In fact, an entitled skier proved just that after bashing Ivanka Trump for being at the Winter Games. Too bad for him, that was about the time that fans wiped the smug grin off his face once and for all.
The left is firing on all cylinders these days when it comes to bashing President Donald Trump. At this point, people are so sick of hearing it that they’re looking for somewhere they can go to get away from all the noise. That’s increasingly harder to find as celebrities and athletes are now sticking their noses in politics and making everything a political statement.
Apparently believing their opinion matters more than the average American’s, simply because they’re rich, we’re getting blasted from literally every direction these days. Sadly, it’s no different when it comes to the Olympics. At first, people were excited to see the event that was 4 years in the making, but it quickly lost its appeal.
As one would imagine, the injection of politics into the event hasn’t helped it attract any viewers, but rather, just the opposite. In fact, Breitbart has since reported that the 2018 Winter Olympics has experienced the event’s worst ratings ever, a full 10% lower than their previous low in Sochi. Sadly, the athletes who make these statements still haven’t learned to keep their mouth shut and do what they came there to do.
Proving that most recently is an entitled skier by the name of Gus Kenworthy. Of course, the left has been lauding the Olympian as he’s America’s first openly gay skier to compete. Apparently, that made him think that he was entitled to spew the usual liberal rhetoric, and he did just that in a single tweet.
Although it started out innocently enough, it wasn’t long before he was spouting off. “So proud of all these people!” he wrote. “Everybody here has worked so hard to make it to the Olympics and have the opportunity to walk in the closing ceremony! Well… Everyone except Ivanka. Honestly, tf is she doing here??”

Too bad for him, Americans would soon slap the smug grin off his face once and for all.
Perhaps summing it up the best, though, was a response that read, “Didn’t you finish last or in the bottom half of most of our ski competitions? I believe you did. Perhaps you should practice more on making yourself better and leave the political commentary to the experts.”

Kenworthy placed 12th in the slopestyle final, leaving many wondering why “tf” he was there.
Of course, plenty of others were quick to join in and rip him a new one just as bad:
Given your dreadful performance, the real question sir is what TF where you doing there?

She is there doing her JOB! Unlike some people Mr. 12th place.

With the performance you put out there, she was probably thinking the same thing about you. 😂😂😂

Other Olympians were more than happy to see the First Daughter, like medal-winning Olympic bobsledder Lauren Gibbs who took a picture with both Ivanka Trump and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Unfortunately, Gibbs received so much hate from liberals that she has since been forced to delete the image to put an end to the abuse. However, some weren’t so easy to break:

Liberals are ripping this country apart. If someone can bash another person for simply showing up at a public event and attack someone else for taking a picture with a public figure, there’s seriously something wrong. We all have the right to do and act as we please.
The First Amendment is a great and powerful thing that can be used to do so much good in this world. It’s a shame that the left wants to abuse it by attacking someone else for absolutely no reason. “Tolerance” and “unity” my butt — liberalism is a cancer on this planet and its idiots like Kenworthy who prove exactly why.
