Olympic Bobsledder Lauren Gibbs Gives Into Leftist Outrage Mob, Deletes Selfie with Ivanka Trump, Sarah Sanders

Published

on

The United States’ Silver Medal-winning Olympic bobsledder Lauren Gibbs finally gave into the leftist outrage mob that has relentlessly attacked over the course of the past few days on social media after she posted a selfie with First Daughter and senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

In the Twitter post accompanying the selfie, Gibbs wrote, “It’s important to remember that we don’t have to agree on everything to get along, be civil to each other and enjoy each others company. #itsforamerica it was a pleasure to meet you both!”

Gibbs also went on to allow Ivanka Trump to wear her Silver Medal that she won with Elana Meyers Taylor in the two-woman bobsled competition, after Ivanka reportedly questioned how it felt to wear an Olympic medal.

“I feel like this almost is like trying on someone’s wedding band,” Trump said. “Am I allowed?”

As is typical of the anti-Trump left, what followed was a barrage of hate, threats, and intimidation from a seemingly coordinated liberal outrage mob.

To her credit, Gibbs fought back against several critics before deleting the image.

“History will treat [President Donald Trump] as an equal to Hitler,” one user wrote. “Your children and grandchildren will be so embarrassed of you for this picture.”

Gibbs responded:

Another Twitter troll took the opportunity to accuse Gibbs, who happens to be black, of being a “complicit citizen to the very people working against your chance at a better life.”

While much of the reaction Gibbs received to her Tweet was the typical drivel we often hear from the anti-Trump left, it wasn’t all negative as some sensible Americans choose to weigh-in, as well.

In the times in which we live, the world could use a few more athletes like Lauren Gibbs.

Canada, Australia Withdraw From Tokyo Olympics Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic

The Olympics could be postponed or cancelled.

Published

on

Canada and Australia have formally withdrawn from participating in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as planned, and it appears possible that the Olympic Games are set to be either postponed to cancelled entirely on the basis of the global Chinese Coronavirus epidemic.

Canada nor Australia will not be participating in the games if they’re held at all this year, with the Olympic committees of the two nations ruling out participating at all if they’re held in 2020. This may force Japanese authorities to move the games to 2021 if they plan on hosting them after all.

An Olympic tournament ultimately would prove to be a considerable threat for global spread of the disease. The games always involve a considerable deal of global travel, and it’s almost a certainty the movement of hundreds of thousands of people for the games would bring home the coronavirus when they return home.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe acknowledged the possibility that the games may not occur as planned as a result of the pandemic on Sunday. He forcefully rejected the notion of having to cancel them outright, stating such a possibility was “not an option.” The opportunity to host an Olympic tournament is highly coveted by the nations of the world, and it’s not surprising that Japan doesn’t want to consider cancelling the games at this point.

The Internation Olympic Committee is said to be in intense deliberation over the planning for the event. It’s hard to imagine a structure for the games that would be isolated from the coronavirus threat.

The games have only been wholly cancelled three times since their inception- all during World Wars I and II.

If the coronavirus epidemic truly does result in the postponement or cancellation of the Olympics, it would likely solidify the virus’ place in world history as a truly massive event.
