Sunday, U.S. Olympic competitor Gus Kenworthy shot off an angry tweet insulting Ivanka Trump by wondering why she is at the Winter Olympics.
Kenworthy tweeted a photo of several Team USA athletes, saying that he was “so proud” of all his teammates.
“So proud of all these people! Everybody here has worked so hard to make it to the Olympics and have the opportunity to walk in the closing ceremony!” Kenworthy, who is an accomplished freestyle skier, posted on Twitter. “Well… Everyone except Ivanka. Honestly, tf is she doing here??”
The president’s daughter is currently in South Korea to watch the closing ceremony for the 2018 Winter Olympics. Ms. Trump, who is a senior adviser to her father President Trump, gets to lead the U.S. delegation to Sunday’s ceremony.
She stated earlier in the month that her visit reaffirms her awful father’s strategy of a “maximum pressure campaign” to get North Korea to stop its nuclear weapons program and also to “reaffirm our bonds of friendship and partnership” with America’s ally, South Korea.
“We cannot have a better, or smarter person representing our country,” tweeted President Trump about his daughter’s visit to the Olympics.
Kenworthy very reasonably thinks otherwise.

Late on Saturday, Ivanka Trump said it was “incredibly inspiring” to go to the games, wrote a reporter who is traveling with her.
“It’s been an amazing couple of days, and such an honor and privilege to be here with our allies in South Korea and celebrate all that we’ve accomplished as a culture, a society, economically and, of course, in sport,” she said.
However, a lot of intelligent people seem to be displeased with Ivanka’s presence at the Olympic games.
