Exactly! Just as she has her opinion and as you say she can speaks her mind so can everyone else speak their minds!

MAGA!



This Olympic Games, I have missed for the first time the opening and have not spend more than maybe one hour watching the events.

After Lyndsey and the male skater started to bring politics into the Olympic Games, I lost my willingness to watch the games.

The Oscars are coming up and Jimmy Kimmel will host it and we know how outspoken he is so that will most likely another bashing, and another night to spend on family and friends and doing other things.

Frankly we never enjoyed so much time doing other stuff, thanks to all the bashers we actually going more out and enjoy Florida more, instead of sitting on the couch and watch the bashers.

The skier also said she would not accept an invitation to the White House if she won another gold medal at next year's Winter Olympics.
Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don

Good for her, I agree 100%!
Thanks Lindsey for having the personal integrity to take a stand. That takes a lot of courage.

It's not hard to give things like this up. I've virtually stopped watching the NFL due to the protests. At first it was weird, but I found I don't really miss it.

Her brand has self destructed.

Not exactly the sharpest knife in the kitchen.

But hey, maybe she can get a job as pundit at MSNBC.

Lol, sure it has . After all she has what only like 81 world cup wins...

Choked? Well, she did win the bronze medal, but I'm sure your standards are much higher

The fact that she thought someone was asking her to "represent Trump" in some way actually says a lot about her.

A lot of people were like me: completely neutral until she shot off her mouth. And now she expects me to buy some product she will endorse? No.

The problem she has now, is that companies are run by people like me. I was once a director of marketing. If her endorsement was offered to my company and I had to choose between Chloe Kim and Vonn, well, guess what......?
