Gay US Olympians dig in on feud with vice president: 'Eat your heart out, Pence'

Source: the hill

The first two openly gay male U.S. winter Olympians are doubling down on their feud with Vice President Pence over his record on LGBTQ rights.


..........................................


Kenworthy earlier in February called Pence a “strange choice” and a “bad fit” to lead the U.S. delegation to the Olympics.

“To have somebody leading the delegation that’s directly attacked the LGBTQ community, and a Cabinet in general that just sort of stands against us and has tried to do things to set us back, it just seems like a bad fit,” Kenworthy said.
.............................

“I don’t think the current administration represents the values that I was taught growing up,” Rippon said. “Mike Pence doesn’t really stand for anything that I believe in.”
.................................

Pence’s record on LGBTQ rights, including signing a religious freedom law as Indiana governor that many said would have legalized anti-gay discrimination, has made him a top adversary of the gay community.

I am glad they are letting the world know what a bigot Pence is.

6. Yeah, because Dense is such a fucking closet case

He's the orange Mini Me and calls his wife "mother" and will only dine with other women while properly accompanied...like in the 1800s?

He obviously flagellates, well, frantically to muscle mags from the 1960s.

Methinks it's not the lust in his loins for the vag but a thirst for the peen. This is textbook suppression.

10. Spot On!

With the positions he has taken on LGBT rights and a whole host of other positions, he must have a heart as cold as ice.

12. Gay Porn

As someone on twitter remarked during the state of the union address ( or what passes for one now) "I don't watch gay porn but if you watch Pence looking at Trump - well, it seems pretty much like the same thing " - with apologies to gay porn stars. .

13. So far Pence failed to show at the night before dinner, dodged a handshake with

the host country and failed to stand for them when everone else in the stadium did as they entered.
Nice diplomacy, little mike, big donnie-boy will be pleased.
Meanwhile you make the rest of us look like the swamp trash that you personify at one of the world's best international peace events.

Quit today you worthless little toad.

14. And this vile "Mr. Clean" could be our only option if there is

an impeachment. I hope Mueller has the "dirt" on his lying ass (and his Russian $$$ loving brother).
