Of all the things that we have learned during the 2018 Winter Olympics, one thing remains clear: Vice President Mike Pence is living rent free in the heads of two openly gay Team USA athletes.
In addition to the well-publicized and completely one-sided feud between U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon, and Mike Pence. We can now add the completely unprovoked Thursday tweet from gay Olympian Gus Kenworthy.
Kenworthy announced on Twitter that he broke his thumb during practice. He also said that the injury would not prevent him from competing in events. Yet, the injury would prevent him from shaking hands with Vice President Mike Pence:
Broke my thumb yesterday in practice. It won't stop me from competing (obvi) but it does prevent me from shaking Pence's hand so… Silver linings! Will be giving my teammates (and literally everyone else) an enthusiastic "thumbs up!" of encouragement the rest of the trip. pic.twitter.com/XylPPGAq9P
