Donald Trump Jr. Attacks Olympian Adam Rippon On Twitter

Sherri Shepherd and Joy Behar

Sunny Hostin said she found it "interesting" Omarosa said "Jesus tells Mike Pence what to say", and added that when she went to law school in IN, the former governor was "a hated figure there".

'If he's OK with what's being said about people and Americans and foreigners and about different countries that are being called "s**tholes", I think he should really go to church'. And I think when you have Mike Pence, who now puts this religious veneer and calls people 'values voters, ' I think we're in a unsafe situation. Learning about the Olympian's comments, Pence's press secretary, Alyssa Farah, told reporters that the accusation was false.

"And what we typically see from the left, if they don't understand something, is they have a tendency to try to despise it or mock it", Barnette added.

Bristol writes in her blog post that Vice President Pence wanted to meet with Rippon and the figure skater refused, which is reportedly true.

"I apologize, you are a conservative I guess. you know what, I'm not in this fight today", McCain said in response.

Bristol did not include Rippon's actual answer or reason for not declining an invite to meet with Pence, despite that quote coming right before the soundbite she opted to highlight.

Rippon, the first openly gay US figure skater to compete in the Olympics, helped Team USA win a bronze medal in the figure skating team event on Monday.

According to German newspaper Die Welt, the remark was made regarding the fact that Pence had ostentatiously avoided contact with North Korea's officials who also attended the opening ceremony, including Kim Yo-jong, the younger sister of North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un. But I don't think the current administration represents the values that I was taught growing up.

Gus Kenworthy and Adam Rippon, United States athletes in freestyle skiing and figure skating respectfully, shared a kiss on social media this weekend.

Rippon has not commented on Trump Jr.'s tweet.

'Resources should be directed toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior'.

And Rippon, who is based in Los Angeles, has no plans to quiet down.

After explaining what Pence did, co-host Sunny Hostin sneered that Pence was being a hypocrite, since he famously walked out of a football game a year ago after NFL players kneeled during the National Anthem.

"I'm Christian, I love Jesus".
