I haven’t watched one minute of the Olympics in Korea this year, mainly because I am not interested.
Vonn made her Winter Olympics debut, and it went poorly. The U.S. skier’s first even was the super-G event. Vonn is one of the older skiers at the Olympics this time around, 33, and she was the first skier to go through the course.
Viewing the video below, she skidded pretty badly toward the end of the course and cost herself some precious time. As you can see in the video below, she mouthed “I tried” after she finished.
Back in December, Vonn went viral on social media back when she commented on the possibility of visiting the White House after the games.
“I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony,” Vonn told CNN. “I want to represent our country well. I don’t think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”
Frustrating to be so close to the podium and to have made such a big mistake…but that’s ski racing. I’m proud of the way I skied and how I attacked the course. I gave it my all and came up short. That’s life. Now it’s on to the Downhill! ??

Vonn said she would not accept an invitation to the White House.
“Absolutely not. Nope. I have to win to be invited so – no, actually I think every US team member is invited. So, no, I won’t go.”

Lindsey Vonn said she was going to boycott the White House visit.
Lindsey Vonn screwed up her ski run.
Trump doesn’t want losers visiting the White House.
Lindsey Vonn isn’t invited therefore she can’t boycott the White House.

Guess "Lindsey Vonn" won't have worry about declining that Trump invitation to the WH after all! pic.twitter.com/X3TmqZEbCF

What do Lindsey Vonn and Hillary Clinton have in common?
They both thought they deserved a trip to the White House but neither one will even be allowed on the property.

If Linsey Vonn wouldn’t have choked today in her #Olympics run…she could have turned down that White House visit in epic fashion. Too bad she’s an asshole who CHOKED. You aren’t getting an invite, Trump likes winners. @lindseyvonn

Vonn did have her supporters, however:
I just spent last 20 min's reading thru tweets directed at @lindseyvonn. Sickened & disgusted once again by the lack of humanity that engulfs our country. She just raced her damn heart out & Trump supporters gloat/cheer/celebrate her inability to medal. Is this what we've become?

Either way Julie, Lindsey set her course with her own words. Just because people are responding to her doesn’t make them bad. Her initial words against President Trump could be tagged with the same “sickened and disgusting.”
She didn’t want to visit the WH and right now she’s making it possible she will not need to pack her bags.
SOUND OFF in the comment section what you thought of this race and is this part of that #TrumpCurse?
