On Monday, U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon spoke to Good Morning America‘s Amy Robach in PyeongChang, South Korea at the 2018 Winter Olympics where he totally stole the show! Related: 2018 Winter Olympics Have Broken The Record For Most WHAT?! After his charming interview, Michael Strahan gushed: "That was one of the best interviews I've ever seen." WATCH (below) to see why: In case you aren't familiar with the athlete, here are five fast facts! 1. Adam is making history! When Rippon made the U.S. team, he is believed to be the first openly gay American athlete to qualify for any Winter Olympics! 2. He ALREADY won an Olympic medal, though people think he got robbed! On Monday, the 28-year-old won a bronze medal in the figure skating team competition behind Russian skater Mikhail Kolyada and Canadian skater Patrick Chan. However, social media users believe he should've won gold as both aforementioned skaters FELL during their routines! People on Twitter wrote: Adam Rippon was robbed by these judges, and you cannot convince me otherwise. I have two eyes that work just fine, and I know what I saw.#PyeongChang2018 — Charlotte Clymer🏳️‍🌈 (@cmclymer) February 12, 2018 maybe i don’t understand how they judge figure skating, but how does someone who falls twice (*ahem* russia & canada) score higher on technical skill than adam rippon, who delivered a flawless, beautiful skate?! I KNOW WHAT I SAW THEY ROBBED US Y’ALL. — cadet bone spurs ehsan (@fifimcfae) February 12, 2018 I know Adam Rippon is technically part of the US Olympics team but I'm claiming him for the gays. So I can say that yet again the gays WERE ROBBED. — Miles (@zombie_midgey) February 12, 2018 In response to the controversy, he told GMA: "I think we need to get those people who think that I was ripped off on a judging panel immediately. Maybe before the individual competition." Because of his award, Rippon is believed to be the first openly gay U.S. athlete to win a medal at the Winter Olympics. 3. Adam is friends with fellow gay Olympian Gus Kenworthy! As seen on Instagram, the figure skater and the freestyle skier have become quite the duo! The #OpeningCeremony is a wrap and the 2018 Winter Olympic Gaymes are officially under way! I feel incredibly honored to be here in Korea competing for the US and I'm so proud to be representing the LGBTQ community alongside this amazing guy! Eat your heart out, Pence. #TeamUSA #TeamUSGay 🇺🇲🏳️‍🌈A post shared by gus kenworthy (@guskenworthy) on Feb 9, 2018 at 7:29am PST I'm a proud dad, today. ❤️🥉💛💚💙💜A post shared by gus kenworthy (@guskenworthy) on Feb 12, 2018 at 12:22am PST Adam even describes Gus as "such a sweetheart," "super nice," and "super cute"! 4. Adam is giving Vice President Mike Pence the cold shoulder! Rippon has publicly criticized VP Mike Pence for his long record of anti-gay legislation, and for his reported support of gay conversion therapy, which was denied by Pence spokesman Marc Lotter, according to the New York Times in November 2016. In an interview with USA Today in January 2018, Adam quipped: "You mean Mike Pence, the same Mike Pence that funded gay conversion therapy?... I'm not buying it." He also said he would NOT be open to meeting with Pence at the winter games. "If it were before my event, I would absolutely not go out of my way to meet somebody who I felt has gone out of their way to not only show that they aren't a friend of a gay person but that they think that they're sick... I wouldn't go out of my way to meet somebody like that." On Monday, he reiterated his position to GMA: "I personally don't have anything to say to Mike Pence... I'm very lucky because legislation he's pushed hasn't affected my life at all. I spoke out because there are people out there whose… lives have been affected by changes that he's tried to make... Right now I have a voice, and I think it's really important for me to use it," Earlier this month, Pence reached out to Rippon on Twitter, saying he is "proud of [him]" and that he shouldn't believe the "fake news" suggesting otherwise. .@Adaripp I want you to know we are FOR YOU. Don’t let fake news distract you. I am proud of you and ALL OF OUR GREAT athletes and my only hope for you and all of #TeamUSA is to bring home the gold. Go get ‘em! — Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) February 8, 2018 5. Adam has BIG plans after the Olympics! When he returns to the States, Rippon plans to celebrate at... Target! He told GMA: "I'm gonna go to Target, and I'm gonna get a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc Oyster Bay, with the twist top. Immediately." Adam, you 100% deserve it! [Image via Adam Rippon/Instagram.].....»»

White House Says U.S. Considering NOT Participating In 2018 Olympics — And Has To Walk It Back Immediately!

The U.S. seriously considered withdrawing from the 2018 Olympics?? Man, Donald Trump will not rest until we are the laughingstock of the entire world… This temporary insanity all started when United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley implied during a Fox News interview that the recently exacerbated (by someone…) tensions with North Korea could make it too unsafe for [...] The U.S. seriously considered withdrawing from the 2018 Olympics?? Man, Donald Trump will not rest until we are the laughingstock of the entire world... This temporary insanity all started when United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley implied during a Fox News interview that the recently exacerbated (by someone...) tensions with North Korea could make it too unsafe for the United States to send athletes to the games in Pyeongchang. Related: Kim Jong Un's Unprecedented Response To 'Dotard' Trump's Threats To 'Totally Destroy' North Korea! Obviously reporters had to ask White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for the official position on this nonsense -- to which she shocked by saying: "No official decision has been made." No decision on whether to attend the Olympics? Seriously, WTF?? JUST IN: Press Sec. Sarah Sanders: "No official decision has been made" on US participation in the Winter Olympics pic.twitter.com/5ZCvIRhLmr — NBC News (@NBCNews) December 7, 2017 Wow. That must have gotten an even quicker, more negative response than most of the tripe out of the White House, because in an uncharacteristic move, Sanders tweeted out almost immediately after the briefing that the U.S. would NOT be skipping the games this year. Though that might change when Trump sees what Lindsey Vonn said about him... UPDATE: The U.S. looks forward to participating in the Winter Olympics in South Korea. The protection of Americans is our top priority and we are engaged with the South Koreans and other partner nations to secure the venues. — Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) December 7, 2017 Of course, the fact we even considered dropping out had Twitter aflame with forehead slaps, as well as theories Trump was trying to send a message of solidarity with Vladimir Putin after Russia was banned from the games for doping violations. Ch-ch-check out some of the hottest takes on the Winter Olympics fiasco (below): This week in Trump (so far): *Monday: endorses pedophile *Tuesday: biggest land grab in US history *Wednesday: Jerusalem announcement ignites Middle East, slurs words *Thursday: US may not attend Olympics Unit to lead! #impeach #2545 — Amy Siskind (@Amy_Siskind) December 7, 2017 Wow.

We just received breaking news that the Winter Olympics are still a thing and that in record time this year’s event is already tragic stupid and boring. Today marked the opening ceremony of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics on the other side of the globe in South Korea, and now we’re now destined for two weeks of terrible sports that no one cares about. Or three weeks. Or one. Nobody knows. Those up at 6 a.m. this morning were able to stream the opening ceremony live, and tonight’s stateside edited broadcast will be at 8:00 p.m. ET. Be sure to watch out for footage of a stadium full of douchebags punctuated by rags to riches stories and fun facts about the host city shared through playful banter between announcers Katie Couric and Mike Tirico. “Now did you hear this Mike, they eat dogs in South Korea and it’s called ‘gaegogi.'” “Yum Katie, I wonder if they call it Gaegogi Style, like the song.” “Oh Mike you’re so funny, fuck me right here.” Up until this morning’s opening ceremony, the biggest news to come out of the 2018 Winter Olympics was the fact that North Korea was going to allow a chain gang of work prisoners to represent their country poorly in various sports. Though when the alternative to winning is getting tortured and killed, you might have a little extra pep in your step. But this is all old news as of now, because during the opening ceremony, team USA – decked out like 2002 frat boys ready for a ski weekend in Gatlinburg, TN. Who stopped by a gas station parking lot to buy novelty fringe Cherokee gloves out of someone’s trunk – stormed onto the field to the song Gangnam Style by Psy – the most successful song to come out of South Korea. Unless an orgy sex tape leaks from the Olympics HPVillage or North Korea blows up everyone I won’t be covering the Winter Olympics again because I can’t have that kind of liability on my résumé. Sorry if this was too negative, I just don’t like things that are tragic stupid and boring.   Photo Credit: Getty Images The post BREAKING: Winter Olympics Already Tragic Stupid And Boring appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»

Russia Banned From 2018 Winter Olympics - Find Out What Happened

Russian teams have been banned from the 2018 Winter Olympics, set to kick off in South Korea in February. This is due to an alleged state-backed doping scandal, which dates back to the 2014 Sochi Games. “This was an unprecedented attack on the integrity of the Olympic Games and sport.

This is due to an alleged state-backed doping scandal, which dates back to the 2014 Sochi Games. “This was an unprecedented attack on the integrity of the Olympic Games and sport. The IOC EB, after following due process, has issued proportional sanctions for this systemic manipulation while protecting the clean athletes. This should draw a line under this damaging episode and serve as a catalyst for a more effective anti-doping system led by WADA,” Thomas Bach, the head of the International Olympic Committee, said during a press conference. “As an athlete myself, I feel very sorry for all the clean athletes from all NOCs who are suffering from this manipulation. Working with the IOC Athletes’ Commission, we will now look for opportunities to make up for the moments they have missed on the finish line or on the podium.” Athletes from Russia who do compete will have to do so in neutral uniforms, and will be subject to strict anti-doping scrutiny. They will compete under “Olympic Athlete from Russia (OAR)” Reports suggest that Russia had their athletes Sochi urine samples tampered with by intelligence agents, who would swap them out via a hole in the wall of a lab......»»

Matt Lauer"s Sexual Misconduct Accusation Stemmed From 2014"s Sochi Winter Olympics (Report)

A source is telling People that a woman came forward about Lauer and sexual misconduct at the Sochi Winter Olympics back in 2014. The survivor who came forward hired lawyer Ari Wilkenfeld, who released a statement to Page Six about the course of events that occurred beginning on Monday (November 27). “My client and I met with representatives from NBC’s Human Resources and Legal Department at 6 p.m. on Monday. Over the course of several hours, my client detailed egregious acts of sexual harassment and misconduct by Mr. Lauer,” Ari said in a statement. “In fewer than than 35 hours, NBC investigated and removed Mr. Lauer. Our impression at this point is that NBC acted quickly and responsibly, as all companies should when confronted with credible allegations about sexual misconduct in the workplace. While I am impressed by NBC’s response to date, I am awed by the courage my client showed to be the first to raise a complaint and to do so without making any demands other than asking the company do the right thing. This is how the system should work.” Sources are saying the evidence against Lauer was “compelling.”.....»»

And both teams certainly put up a fight. Not only did the game go into a 20-minute overtime, but the extra time ended in a 2-2 tie thanks to a penalty shootout.

Olympic Skier Gus Kenworthy Adopts Puppy From Korean Dog Meat Farm

Team USA’s Gus Kenworthy is once again wrapping up the Winter Olympics with a rescue dog.

The 26-year-old Olympic freestyle skier took to Instagram on Friday (February 23) during the 2018 Winter Olympics to reveal that he and his boyfriend Matthew Wilkas rescued a puppy named Beemo from one of South Korea’s many dog meat farms. “This morning Matt and I had a heart-wrenching visited to one of the 17,000 dog farms here in South Korea,” Gus captioned the slideshow below. “Across the country there are 2.5 million dogs being raised for food in some of the most disturbing conditions imaginable. Yes, there is an argument to be made that eating dogs is a part of Korean culture. And, while [I] don’t personally agree with it, I do agree that it’s not my place to impose western ideals on the people here. The way these animals are being treated, however, is completely inhumane and culture should never be a scapegoat for cruelty.” Beemo was one of 90 dogs living in cold, cramped outdoor cages and neglectful, cruel conditions. Good news: Gus shared that the farm they visited is being shut down, and all of the pups are being flown to the U.S. and Canada, where they will be put up for adoption with the help of Humane Society International. “I’m hoping to use this visit as an opportunity to raise awareness to the inhumanity of the dog meat trade here in Korea and the plight of dogs everywhere, including back home in the US where millions of dogs are in need of loving homes!” Gus added. “Go to @hsiglobal’s page to see how you can help.” Gus also rescued five stray dogs at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. See his full post below. This morning Matt and I had a heart-wrenching visited to one of the 17,000 dog farms here in South Korea. Across the country there are 2.5 million dogs being raised for food in some of the most disturbing conditions imaginable. Yes, there is an argument to be made that eating dogs is a part of Korean culture. And, while don't personally agree with it, I do agree that it's not my place to impose western ideals on the people here. The way these animals are being treated, however, is completely inhumane and culture should never be a scapegoat for cruelty. I was told that the dogs on this particular farm were kept in "good conditions" by comparison to other farms. The dogs here are malnourished and physically abused, crammed into tiny wire-floored pens, and exposed to the freezing winter elements and scorching summer conditions. When it comes time to put one down it is done so in front of the other dogs by means of electrocution sometimes taking up to 20 agonizing minutes. Despite the beliefs of the Korean public at large, these dogs are no different from the ones we call pets back home. Some of them were even pets at one time and were stolen or found and sold into the dog meat trade. Luckily, this particular farm (thanks to the hard work of the Humane Society International and the cooperation of a farmer who's seen the error of his ways) is being permanently shut down and all 90 of the dogs here will be brought to the US and Canada where they'll find their fur-ever homes. I adopted the sweet baby in the first pic (we named her Beemo) and she'll be coming to the US to live with me as soon as she's through with her vaccinations in a short couple of weeks. I cannot wait to give her the best life possible! There are still millions of dogs here in need of help though (like the Great Pyrenees in the 2nd pic who was truly the sweetest dog ever). I'm hoping to use this visit as an opportunity to raise awareness to the inhumanity of the dog meat trade here in Korea and the plight of dogs everywhere, including back home in the US where millions of dogs are in need of loving homes!

This Is Us Fans Are GUTTED By The Super Bowl Episode — See The Most Tear-Filled Twitter Reactions HERE!

AHHHHHHHH. We knew this was coming, but it still doesn't make it any easier!

Brown's 2018 Golden Globes Acceptance Speech **WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD** While fans knew a fire was [...] AHHHHHHHH. We knew this was coming, but it still doesn't make it any easier! NBC and This Is Us finally revealed the way Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) died -- and it had all the feels following the Super Bowl. Related: Watch Sterling K. Brown's 2018 Golden Globes Acceptance Speech **WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD** While fans knew a fire was the catalyst for the Pearson patriarch's death, they weren't 100% positive he died in the fire. Fan theories of death caused by smoke inhalation had been circulating all week, and sadly they were confirmed Sunday night. You see, Jack wound up rescuing everyone by lowering them down into the yard from the second floor with a bed sheet. He was about to jump himself until the family could hear the barking of teen Kate's (Hannah Zeile) pup. At this point the audience could see Jack's hesitation to escape before trying to save the animal. And so could Rebecca (Mandy Moore). Rebecca demanded Jack leave the pet behind, but Father Of The Year couldn't let Kate down so he went back into the window to get the dog. So now teen Kate, Rebecca, and teen Randall (Niles Fitch) are all waiting for Jack to make it out when they see a blaze come through the room they last saw him in. It's this moment when both the family and the audience are panicking, thinking Jack is probably burning to death. Leave it to This Is Us to keep twisting the road though, because Jack DOES make it out of the house WITH the dog. (For all you Kevin fans, teen Kevin (Logan Shroyer) is out in the woods with girlfriend, so he is completely unaware of everything at this point.) Oooookay. So now the Pearsons have lost their house but not their hope as everyone seems to be FINE following the fire. Keyword here being seems. Jack has some burns on his body, and he has inhaled a dangerous amount of smoke. The EMTs are highly recommending he get to the hospital ASAP. Rebecca drops the kids off at Miguel's (Jon Huertas) and they head into the hospital to get the damage checked out. It's there that the doctor reiterates the unhealthy amount of smoke Jack took in, but for everyone concerned, things are generally looking safe. Rebecca takes this opportunity of relief to leave his room and make a few phone calls to nearby hotels. As soon as she left his room, ahhhh shit. Fans knew. As she's making the phone calls, the audience sees nurses and doctors scrambling behind her into Jack's room (completely out of her view). Things are NOT good. When she hangs up, she goes to the pathetically empty snack machine and grabs a candy bar. That's when the doctor walks up and starts telling her the news. Jack died of cardiac arrest. Jack died. JACK DIED. And he was completely alone when he died. She was not with him. JACK DIED. Inhaling that much smoke not only affects the lungs, but the heart too. It was too much damage. Jack died. The episode doesn't end there, but that's the moment everyone was waiting for -- the moment that had been torturously teased out over two seasons. In later scenes we learn: Rebecca spends every Super Bowl Sunday by cooking Jack's favorite lasagna and watching the big game by herself (Miguel gives her space every year on this day), Kevin (Justin Hartley) finally visits his father's place of rest and has a chat with his spirit, Jack sends Rebecca a sign every year on Super Bowl Sunday, Kate (Chrissy Metz) almost loses the VHS of her singing with Jack watching but Toby (Chris Sullivan) gets it saved with the help of a guy he knows, Kate uploads the video in the cloud (not on the cloud), Randall (Sterling K. Brown) celebrates the Super Bowl every year with a huge party for his daughters and their friends, Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) accidentally kills the new pet lizard and Randall comes to terms with his mourning of Jack when he gives a memorial for the pet reptile, Randall and Tess (Eris Baker) have a heart to heart where Tess reveals she's been feeling like Randall wants a new life but realizes that's not true and she'd actually like the family to foster again, Deja (Lyric Ross) comes back, and finally, we learn that Tess grows up to become a social worker who matches foster children with new homes -- and Randall meets her for dinner once a week at her office. Needless to say, fans have a lot to say about the wrecking ball of an episode on Twitter. Read the most cathartic responses (below): Call your parents, hug them, and spend quality time with them. You never know when it will be the last time. Omg, this episode broke me! I cried the whole time. @NBCThisisUs #ThisIsUs — SandyT (@sassygirlcanada) February 5, 2018 Remember when Randall told William he needed to have a nurse so he "wouldnt die while no one was watching" now we know why 😭 #ThisIsUs — What a story, Mark (@WhatAStoryMark2) February 5, 2018 Me: Ok I know that this is the #ThisIsUs episode where Jack dies.

Practice my side-eye for Kate on Tuesday's episode? #ThisIsUs pic.twitter.com/uxrKuFUCNR — Brittany 👩🏿‍💻 (@organizedbybrit) February 5, 2018 Last time Mandy Moore hurt me this way was with A Walk To Remember... #ThisIsUs — Mermaid Seabreeze (@soulful_hippy) February 5, 2018 I DON'T EVEN KNOW THIS MAN, THIS IS A SHOW, I'M DONE. These are the things that I tell myself every week and it never get better. #ThisIsUs pic.twitter.com/06KBx81jX4 — ZVY (@BlessedZvy) February 5, 2018 Finding out that the social worker was Tess 😭 #ThisIsUs pic.twitter.com/lnM3XwZgDg — Elizabeth Ashley (@LizShady) February 5, 2018 To Do List: 1. Call my dad. 2. Google if can I take bereavement leave for a fictional character.#ThisIsUs pic.twitter.com/pYUlGW8pr9 — DJ (@IamnotnotBatman) February 5, 2018 Just when I thought the little black boy was bout to be moving in with Randall family, a white family walk in and I’m shook. Then I find out we in the future and the social worker is Tess 😭😭😭 I can’t deal #ThisIsUs — JERE (@GodWillExalt) February 5, 2018 I AM DESTROYED EMOTIONALLY #ThisIsUs pic.twitter.com/Z6DTcmlMF0 — Melodie Joy Di Rocco (@meldirocco) February 5, 2018 How did they have a play from tonight's game in the show. Mind blown #ThisIsUs pic.twitter.com/Mkf9JmVgIH — Marcus Wilkins (@marcuswilkins24) February 5, 2018 Me while watching #ThisIsUs pic.twitter.com/IMdoiRScyM — Yancy (@fancyyancyy) February 5, 2018 If you were to combine The Fault In Our Stars, with Titanic and every Nicholas Sparks movie, #ThisIsUs would still be 1000x more heartbreaking. 😭💔 — Kylie Wazonek (@KylieWazonek) February 5, 2018 This Is Us: before, during and after #ThisIsUs pic.twitter.com/2QCR7CnoCj — tina tobias (@tobias_tina) February 5, 2018 did no one else hear jack whisper rebecca’s name when she was at the vending machine?! DID NO ONE ELSE HEAR THAT?!?! #ThisIsUs #ripjack crying for a year now... thanks bye. — Nikii (@nikii1013) February 5, 2018 I won’t be available at all next week. I need time to recover from tonight’s episode. It broke me. #ThisIsUs pic.twitter.com/3vmFeso4pY — Sarah (@SarahBelles23) February 5, 2018 I get that not everyone understands the appeal of #ThisIsUs ...but to those of us who watch, it's about life - relationships, family, love, conflict, struggle, loss, pain, vulnerability, strength, hope, happiness, peace, truth & everything in between...❤❤❤ — Pamela (@pokerpami71) February 5, 2018 It wasn't just fans tweeting. See what the creator and the cast had to say (below): Just so everyone knows it....#JackPearson lives in all of our hearts. He’s you. He’s me. He’s Us. Thank you all for supporting our show. We love you all :) And this isn’t the end of Jack. Stay tuned. #ThisIsUs. MV — Milo Ventimiglia (@MiloVentimiglia) February 5, 2018 Ooof.💔 I think we could all use a little support right now. Come on in. #ThisIsUs pic.twitter.com/PfG2HyVZy6 — Mandy Moore (@TheMandyMoore) February 5, 2018 My mom died 10 years ago, unexpectedly. It’s the hinge upon which my life swings. Jack’s death is the Pearson hinge. We look back. We move forward. That’s our collective journey. Sad? Yes. But when you look through a wide enough lens - it’s also outrageously beautiful. #ThisIsUs — Dan Fogelman (@Dan_Fogelman) February 5, 2018 I don’t have words #ThisIsUs 💔 — Chrissy Metz (@ChrissyMetz) February 5, 2018 Wow. Okay, so there's just two days to recover before a new episode?? OKAY. #ThisIsUs — Sterling K Brown (@SterlingKBrown) February 5, 2018 Ready to see what the future holds? #ThisIsUs pic.twitter.com/V8fnqtByjf — Sterling K Brown (@SterlingKBrown) February 5, 2018 WHAT. A. SHOW!!! You can catch the next episode this Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST on NBC. [Image via NBC.].....»»
