Olympian Lindsey Vonn has shown her backside to the world, and in doing so disgraced our nation.

Vonn, an Olympic Gold Medalist, is set to compete once again in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and while she’s going to be competing on behalf of our country, she apparently doesn’t realize the President is part of our country. In fact, Vonn said that she doesn’t consider herself to be “representing” President Trump when she competes this year.

“Well, I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Vonn told CNN.

The 33-year-old went even further by taking a not-so-veiled swipe at members of the Trump administration.

“I want to represent our country well,” Vonn explained. “I don’t think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”

Vonn’s comments aren’t entirely surprising, but they are extremely tasteless. This same alpine skier visited the Obama White House numerous times over the last eight years, including with her ex-boyfriend Tiger Woods, so her issue isn’t with government, but with President Trump himself.

Such was evident when she was asked whether or not she’d accept an invitation from Trump to the White House after the games as a congratulations. Her answer wasn’t exactly that of a professional athlete.

“Absolutely not,” she remarked.

Vonn isn’t the only athlete who’s disrespected the office of the President since Trump was elected. If you remember, the entire Golden State Warriors team, led by crybaby Steph Curry, also took shots at President Trump and ended up being uninvited to the White House after winning the NBA Championship earlier this year.

Additionally, NBA player LeBron James took a shot at not only President Trump, but the 63 million people who cast a ballot in his favor.

“No matter whether you voted for him or not, you may have made a mistake and that’s OK, if you voted for him. It’s OK. I’ve done things for my daughter and realized I shouldn’t have gave my daughter that many damn Skittles. Maybe I shouldn’t have done that,” he said.

“At the end of the day, I don’t think a lot of people was educated,” he said. “And I think that’s one of the biggest problems that we have. When it becomes vote time, people are just not educated on either the individual or what’s going on in the state of the world right now. … I don’t think a lot of people are educated and they make choices and say things that are uneducated.”

Either way, while we expect low-class NBA players to act like immature babies, such conduct seems unbefitting of an Olympian preparing to represent our nation at the global games.

Perhaps Ms. Vonn should forfeit her position on the U.S. Olympic Team if she’s not going to respect the leader of our nation.
