Too much and too loudly for some people, who don't like his message or his style.

Rippon has always been vocal with his criticisms of the Vice President. "It's something really personal between me and her".




Right now, it's a blast. After her 15-year figure skating hiatus, Rippon helped Loza shake off the rust and restore some of her luster on the ice.

He goes to press conferences where microphones are put in front of his face, happy to answer any question. He said, "But to the people that were distressed - I hope maybe you can be on a judging panel someday".

Adam Rippon also made headlines as the first openly gay USA athlete to compete in the Winter Olympics.

It's the same sense of humor he uses to approach everything in his life, even here, where the stakes are the highest and any lapse in concentration means the difference between standing on the medal podium and going home empty handed. The Berlin Wall came down when I was, like, born. "It's gotten me through a lot of challenging times". "We all live during our Olympic careers, and after our competitive careers, with an interesting relationship to food".

"I personally don't have anything to say to Mike Pence", Rippon said. Four years ago, we were eating In-N-Out on the roof of her house in Arcadia, California, and we were crying that we weren't at the Olympics. "Get used to it", Kenworthy wrote on Twitter.

Rippon, who won his first Olympic medal last week, was attacked by Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday night for speaking out about Vice President Mike Pence's anti-gay record. Back in December, the bronze medalist tweeted, "I was recently asked in an interview what its like to be a gay athlete in sports. I am very proud", Kelly Rippon said. "I am really glad that my sister got to see me skate in a competition for the first time".

After breaking his left foot past year, Rippon realized it was time to address his diet, believing it could have contributed to the injury. "I'll be fine, '" he said. They might now want to get to know me. "I was disappointed as a citizen of this country".
