Definitely Not Gay Mike Pence Issues Statement Begging Gay Olympians To Come Meet Him Ahead Of The Games

Vice President-Elect Mike Pence Visits

Source - Adam Rippon, 28, was named as one of three male figure skaters who will skate for the US in Pyeongchang, South Korea in February.  The gay Olympian has made waves this week after saying he would refuse to meet with Vice President Mike Pence, who is set to lead the US delegation in the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Rippon said: “You mean Mike Pence, the same Mike Pence that funded gay conversion therapy? I’m not buying it. I don’t think he has a real concept of reality. To stand by some of the things that Donald Trump has said and for Mike Pence to say he’s a devout Christian man is completely contradictory. If he’s okay with what’s being said about people and Americans and foreigners and about different countries that are being called ‘shitholes,’ I think he should really go to church.”

I commend Adam for using his platform to bring awareness to LGBT issues. I think it’s important for people in the public eye to use their voice as an agent of change. However, this situation is different than most. Pence had been a hard-line gay hater for as long as he’s been in office, acknowledging gays as an ideology rather than a people. Which is why his most recent statement is such a big deal. Not only did he speak directly TO a gay, he essentially asked him to meet up.

The Vice President has since made the extraordinary decision to hit back at the Olympian. Pence’s press secretary, Alyssa Farah, said: “The vice president is proud to lead the U.S. delegation to the Olympics and support America’s incredible athletes. Rippon’s accusation is totally false and has no basis in fact. Despite these misinformed claims, the vice president will be enthusiastically supporting all the U.S. athletes competing next month in Pyeongchang.”

He’s not saying it directly but it makes you think- a cute figure skater comes along and all of a sudden he cares about what we think of him? Seems pretty obvious that he has a type. I don’t even want to know what he’s going to do when he finds out that Gus Kenworthy made the team.

I’m not saying that Pence is a gay guy, but I’m not not saying it either. So don’t be surprised if his next statement includes the words “Into? or “Masc?”

If I were Rippon, I’d use Pence’s interest to my advantage. Get real close then hot mouth (kiss) him in front of the entire world. He’ll either come out as gay or volunteer himself for retirement. Either way it’s a win-win.
