Justin Trudeau makes gay athletes feel lucky as hell while President Trump and his lackeys make them feel like second-class citizens … that’s the sad truth according to the first openly gay athlete to win a gold medal at the Winter Olympics.
Canada’s Eric Radford says he’s gotten a hero’s welcome after he and figure skating partner Meagan Duhamel won gold this week in PyeongChang.
It’s a stark contrast to the drama U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon‘s dealing with after snubbing Veep Mike Pence, who invited Rippon to meet with him after his bronze win. Rippon declined … citing Pence’s staunch opposition for gay rights (he once referred to gay marriage as “societal collapse”).
Check it out … Radford extends his own invite to Rippon. Guessing he’ll definitely accept!
So proud that @Adaripp and I get to wear these medals and show the world what we can do! #represent🏳️🌈 #olympics #pyeongchang2018 #pride #outandproud #medalists #TeamNorthAmerica pic.twitter.com/eXMlZ2Utrw
