Champion skier Lindsay Vonn placed 6th in her first 2018 Olympic competition as it shocked many onlookers.
Many Trump supporters saw that as justice for trying to show up President Trump a few months ago showing how she wasn’t skating for him and the White House and how she wouldn’t visit the Oval Office if she won a Gold medal.
Trump supporters responded fiercely after she bombed her attempt reminding her she was skating for the United States of America which included everyone and picking and choosing who she represented wasn’t cool.
I highlighted Julie Foudy’s tweet as a sympathetic voice to Vonn’s low placement in an earlier article, but I didn’t know Vonn was going to answer:
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?

Of all the responses to her loss, she chose this one to die on a hill with as Trump supporters trolled her for this one too.
It’s ok Julie. Not everyone has to like me but my family loves me and I sleep well at night. I work hard and try to be the best person I can be. If they don’t like me 🤷🏼♀️ their loss I guess… Thank you for the support🙏🏻❤️ https://t.co/EaySJE7QAe

If you do not study responses, she’s actually hurt by those who have reminded her what she said about Trump, but she also needs admiration and support which is why the last part of her tweet is asking for support as if she is the victim.
“If they don’t like me, their loss I guess
Why even add that when you’ve poked the bear, trying to be popular with a degenerate crowd who hates the President of the United States.
Here are some responses from those who caught this tweet cry to be seen and pampered with positive tweets.
I’ve always loved Lindsey and have followed her for years. But honestly the comments she made about our President were so unnecessary. What was the point? She brought it on herself.

She also put down the office of the United States President. Where was she for President Obama’s many mistakes- no comments then. You respect the office and support the country especially when you are a public figure in public. Who exactly has supported her Olympic carreer?

You have a lot of nerve to talk about judging people

Congrats on your loss.

Not my loss, I wish all of you uppity sportsman would not include politics into their mantra. You should have kept it to yourself, and your family. Bashing Trump supporters is NOT even close to trying to be the best person you can be,

Sports and Politics shouldn’t mix in my opinion, if someone doesn’t wanna go to the White House, state that after your season is over not before you start your season or Olympics in this case. Stay classy not trashy. 👍

Lindsey’s attempt to get pampered with support did work with her tweet. Many of her fans will love her no matter what and support her hate/dislike for President Trump, but a lot of people see her dissing Trump when she didn’t need to.
She didn’t learn anything today about her attitude, and she will probably never apologize for trying to show up Trump so her karma will continue and it’s a shame.
