He should focus on his goal, acknowledge this great country we live in and be satisfied with his accomplishment, what ever it is.

He's letting politics and drama distract him. I support his figure skating, not his political drama. I'm sure he will learn this over time.

31. Why do you guys

make this so easy?

You do realize that a person's opinion on a relatively obscure discussion group is not the same as the opinions expressed by the alleged "POTUS"...in public... they are not the same, right?

Trump's favorite sport? Insulting other people. Fat-shaming women. Humiliating them in public. Calling them fat and/or ugly when he's the very essence of fat and ugly himself.

His attacks on Alicia Machado, former Miss Universe, for her weight....yeah? Let's see his big fat lardass in a bathing suit.

On second thought...never mind. Not enough eye bleach in the world to get rid of that image.

I'm unaware of a physique clause to the Constitution's presidential eligibility requirements.

Though, that being said, I'm still not sure what the Left is going on about:

36. And she was beautiful

She still is.

Now, I realize that beauty is, as they say, in the eye of the beholder, which is fair enough.

But that is not the point.


There is no standard of physical attractiveness attached to the office of POTUS. I never said there was.

The problem here is that whenever anyone on the left makes a disparaging comment about Righty's beloved cult leader, some of you come back with snark wondering what that person looks like.

What does it matter what that person looks like? People can have an opinion. Even Orange Donny can have an opinion...but there's a big difference between an anonymous person expressing an opinion here where relatively few are going to see it, and the (again) alleged "POTUS" slut and fat shaming women IN PUBLIC.

Humiliating them IN PUBLIC. Especially disgusting when the person publicly humiliating someone else is a blubbery blob of lard himself.

Anyway, no matter. I just think it's sort of amusing-sad-scary how Trumpites defend him at every turn, even at the risk of making themselves look somewhat silly.

37. Your opinion over her beauty is just that: Your opinion.

Spare us your false piety over Trump's words when the Left has made sport of trying to humiliate Conservatives - particularly female Conservatives - for quite some time.

If you and NavyBrat want to castigate Trump for his remarks and act superior then be superior, i.e. don't follow in kind. If you want to chide him for his appearance then post a picture of yourself. You might as well because I have the nagging sense that the problem isn't that Trump struck, only that he struck first and best and the reality is you are no real catch yourself while he beds supermodels for a hobby.

Anyone who follows figure skating (and I don't, I had to Google him) would know who he is.
Righty is just so phenomenally hung up on gays and gayness that they can't comprehend identifying with someone for any other reason.

50. Strangly enough

I keep seeing claims like this but see remarkably few instances of it actually happening. Aside from a couple trolls, your going to get them on every subject, seems like the right couldn't care less about gays or gayness. So long as they aren't being forced to accept it. They seem perfectly ok with tolerating it and when some odd ball steps forward to do otherwise they seem pretty good about calling that out as wrong when they notice. Although they probably don't notice as quickly because they aren't out there trying to dig it up.

Truth is for the vast majority of those you are pointing fingers at, they seem to not care less about what you are accusing them being "hung up on."

If you mean because of his trump comments he is entitled to them

I also do not approve of Rippon's lifestyle, that's MY opinion

But honestly he is not even on my radar as a supposed athlete

Skiers, Biathlon, Luge, Hockey, Speed skaters , etc. are athletes

Prancing on ice is not a sport

20. Had to get in that last bit, didn't you?

 

You launch yourself into the air, complete four rotations, and have sufficient balance and leg strength to land upright on a strip of metal a few millimeters wide, and THEN tell me skaters aren't athletes.

Hell, I don't much care about the sport, and I don't follow it, but I'm not so ignorant as to deny their athleticism.

I'm also more impressed (and interested in) the biathlon and skiers. But I will reiterate ... I'm not so ignorant as to pretend that skaters aren't athletes.

23. I thought I heard the other day

that the force involved in landing after launching into the air and completing a bunch of rotations is something like 500 lbs.

Balance...leg strength...timing...knowing where your body is in space...

For me, it's one of the most beautiful sports ever. Sometimes when I'm watching a particularly moving performance, I get all weepy. As a teenager I had dreams of being a figure skater...not saying I would be good enough for the Olympics or anything, but just for my own self.

Nope. It was not to be. Weak ankles and a disheartening lack of grace and balance kept me from doing much of anything at all on the ice.

I wasn't good at any sports, to be honest. sigh...

Anyway, my favorite male skater...I don't know whether or not he's gay, and I don't care. He's just the cutest thing ever...

52. Actually he is correct

ice skating is not a sport. Or more accurately, figure skating is not a sport, speed skating on the other hand is. That doesn't mean it isn't athletic and take a great deal of skill but if the event requires a subjective measurement to determine the outcome then it isn't a sport. Note the difference between subjective measurements for outcome such as scoring systems in gymnastics or figure skating vs subjective implementation of penalties like in soccer. The difference is that the end result is an objective measurement either the ball went in the net or it did not.

Now someone is likely to call into question boxing which has both but because there is a means to win that does not include judges that qualifies it as a sport.

...doesn't lie in any lack of athleticism. Elite level figure skaters are insanely athletic. The problem with the sport is too great a reliance on subjective judging and a history of corruption.
