People are jokingly(?) talking about a ‘curse’. What do you think?
It’s 2018, should it really surprise us that EVERYTHING is being made into a political statement?
Even the Olympics, where, historically, we’re supposed to leave our differences at the door and meet merely as competitors — that’s not happening.
The rush to get the cultural approval of ‘virtue signaling’ your hatred for Trump and the political right seems to be a drug they just can’t resist.
But is it worth it?
Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before fall, as the Bible says.
And, whatever explanation you might give for why it’s happening, that’s a pretty fair description of what’s happening to the various Olympic hopefuls who made sure they publicly bashed their own President while they wore the Red White and Blue.
Take American Maddie Bowman. She failed to win a gold medal — or a medal of any color — in the free-ski halfpipe. She won gold at the 2014 Olympics, but she fell on all three runs during the final on Tuesday in Pyeong Chang. In the end, she finished 11th.
Her plans of ‘not visiting the White House’ — not a problem. The also-rans tend not to get invited anyway.
Remember that outspoken guy ‘Rippon’ who wanted to both “be” and “not be” a ‘gay icon’ at the Olympics? He dissed Pence (would not shake his hand) and made himself the center of attention for all kinds of reasons that had absolutely nothing to do with his athletic ability?
He won’t have to worry about a White House visit either. He finished 10th. He may be wondering if that offer of an NBC gig is still available.
And what about Lindsey Vonn?
Before the Olympics, she said she would be representing the “people of the United States, not the president.”
Asked if she would accept an invite to the White House to meet Trump if she were to win a gold medal, Vonn said “absolutely not.”
“No. But I have to win to be invited,” she added.
She didn’t win that gold medal. Or the Silver. Or even the Bronze.
She finished 6th.
Who won gold in her Super-G skiing event? A SNOWBOARDER from the Czech Republic.
The number of times that Trump winds up getting the last laugh in these situations is simply uncanny.
And yet again, we find ourselves playing ‘his song’.
If you’re gonna talk smack and then fail…
Be prepared when we all laugh at you for it.

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
You can get the guy’s version here.
