Rippon Responds on Social Media to Haters Hoping He'll Fail

Trump Jr. slams Olympic medalist Adam Rippon
He is not competing as a figure skater in the Olympics right now, nor has he ever competed in the Olympics in any event.
Rippon will next take the ice on Friday for the men's short program.
Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon had a not-so-subtle message for social media haters hoping he'll fail under the intense glare of the Olympic spotlight.
The gay athlete reportedly refused a meeting with Pence in Pyeongchang and has made it clear he has no time for what he believes to be the vice president's views about gay people.
It has many up in arms for talking about a prescription drug so flippantly. About double cheeseburgers and tears under a night sky. "I keep coming back every year, and every year I get better!" His interviews and tweets surrounding the Olympics, and Vice President Mike Pence, have been more exciting than any of the curling events (no offense to curling).
Urged to lose weight by his new coach a few years ago, Rippon said he had adopted the diet of three slices of whole grain bread, topped with a bit of margarine, plus three cups of coffee at each meal.
Right now, it's a blast.
USA figure skater Adam Rippon made a splash in his Olympic debut but, just a few years ago, he was struggling to make ends meet.
He goes to press conferences where microphones are put in front of his face, happy to answer any question. "So much fun", Rippon said to NBC's Andrea Joyce. I think that me using my voice has given my skating a greater objective of more than just something that I enjoy to do. The other day I was joking to one of my friends and he was like, you're kind of everywhere now.
"You know, I've worked my entire life for this moment".
IAF aircraft crashes in Assam, 2 pilots killed
The aircraft was reported to have crashed about 20 km away, at Majuli island, counted among the world's biggest river island. The micro-light aircraft crashed soon after it took off from the Jorhat air base on a routine sortie around noon, they said.
Rippon, 28, who is the US's first openly gayWinter Olympics athlete, has impressed people with his frankness in PyeongChang. With his openness and his self-discovery came a more daring approach. I've used my sense of humor as a coping tool. But at the same time, I have this fantastic opportunity to go out onto the ice and show people, 'Hey, I'm a really serious athlete.' I have this huge personality, but I can put that all together, and that's what gives me strength to go out there in front of millions of people and skate.
"Being here at the Olympics does give me a louder voice", said the skater. It's incredibly powerful, this platform that you can have at the Olympic Games.
Fast-forward four years, and the pair are still hunkering down together. There have been a lot of stories written about that including the vice president's involvement.
