Donald Trump Jr. stood up in defense of Vice President Mike Pence when Adam Rippon, the first openly gay athlete from the United States to participate in the Winter Olympics 2018, said he did not want his experience in South Korea to be all about the man who supported gay "conversion therapy" in the past. "What concerns me is, how long is the conversation with Jesus?"

Bristol wrote that after seeing this, Vice President Pence refused released a statement of his own 'instead of shrinking back from the athlete's rebuke, he put out his own statement'.

"It's one thing to talk to Jesus. Look, I'm Catholic, I'm a faithful person, but I don't know that I want my vice president talking in tongues". Rippon said he wouldn't meet with someone who funded those programs like that, which have been widely discredited. I don't think he's that insane.

Sherri Shepherd said, "You know Joy, as a Christian, that's just par for the course".

He was absolutely fearless in his first run with super giant height on his first jump and just kept the momentum going from there. As soon as he finished his fun, he lifted both of his hands in the air, realizing he gave the run he needed to earn Olympic Gold.

"I think when you have a Mike Pence that puts a religious veneer on things and calls people values voters, I think we're in a risky situation", she added.

'If he's OK with what's being said about people and Americans and foreigners and about different countries that are being called "s**tholes", I think he should really go to church'. "I have no problem about what I've said because I stand by it, but I think right now the Olympics are about Olympic competition". "Why am I a liberal?"

Omorosa Manigault Newman, who left the White House in December, cautioned critics of Donald Trump against impeachment, because it would mean the "extreme" Mr Pence would inherit the presidency. I don't think he would destroy the environment. I think that me using my voice has given my skating a greater goal of more than just something that I enjoy to do.

"The crackdowns are happening and they're aggressive and they're intentional and they're about to get worse - but don't get me wrong, the Obama administration was aggressive on deportation, too", she said. I don't think he would make it his life's goal to go against everything Obama did.
