Adam Rippon? Isn’t he the Olympic figure skater who baselessly accused Vice President Mike Pence of promoting gay conversion therapy and refused to meet with him? Isn’t he also the one who complained later that he didn’t want his Olympic experience to be about Mike Pence?
Here’s a hot take from BuzzFeed video producer Logan Rhoades:
Adam Rippon will not medal, but it's safe to say he's the winner of the Olympics

Rhoades notes that Rippon did win bronze in the team event, but still …

No it’s not safe to say that because he didn’t win. He was very good but there were better skaters and they are the winners.

Maybe that’s something one would say in a #safespace, but in the real world, he didn’t win shit. At least not individually.

First of all, Shaun White is arguably the winner. Secondly… no. Kid had the opportunity to be liked by a country, and decided to divide along politics. Nobody in sports “wins” by dragging politics into it. Ever.

Sorry Shaun White, you might have won your event, but your straight ass isn't allowed to win the Olympics. https://t.co/OeSX5E6aD1

Where have we heard this take before?
Hillary Clinton will not win the Electoral College, but it's safe to say she's the winner of the Election
