“I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Olympic skier Lindey Vonn said, “I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony.”
Vonn added: “I want to represent our country well. I don’t think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”
For telling the truth, the MAGAts were quickly all over her, like lies, sleaze, and slime on Trump.
“Bah ahahaha! Sucka! Trump winning baby!... #lindseyvonn is the latest to suffer from the "Trump Effect". Should keep your mouth shut and race. Don't insult us... Karma is a mo fo. Glad to see you lose. You're an anti -American... Hoping you bomb the downhill also. You were given a great honor to represent the USA but you took advantage and bashed our president. We will pull for anyone but you!”
Julie Foudy, the former U.S. women’s national soccer team captain shared this message of support for Vonn: “I just spent last 20 min's reading thru tweets directed at @lindseyvonn. Sickened & disgusted once again by the lack of humanity that engulfs our country. She just raced her damn heart out & Trump supporters gloat/cheer/celebrate her inability to medal. Is this what we've become?”
Yes, Julie. Sadly so. Thank FOX(R), Limbaugh. Breitbart, Con-servatives and Trump for ramping up their hate over the decades. This is what we’ve become.
