Cogdell-Unrein won the bronze (her second medal, and third time appearing in the Games) in women's trap shooting down in Rio on Sunday, and the Tribune commemorated the event with this absurd tweet (below):
Oh, yeah, that's the thing: in addition to kicking ass at her sport, Cogdell-Unrein happens to be married to Chicago Bears football lineman Mitchell Unrein.
So what's the Tribune's take? Well, why not lead with her husband, right?!
Obviously, Twitter users were not shy about calling out the newspaper for its ridiculous angle on Cogdell-Unrein's achievement, and for pretty much an entire day, the Tribune took it on the chin from angry tweeters (below):
@chicagotribune Her name is Corey Cogdell. Who her husband is doesn't matter. SAY HER NAME. Go on, TWEET HER NAME. Redo that tweet.

@chicagotribune Shouldn't you use her name? She is an Olympic athlete or does it not count if she is married?

As we reported on Wednesday night, the President shocked the nation when he withdrew federal protection for transgender students. Previously, under Barack Obama's administration, students were allowed to use whichever restroom corresponded to their identified sex.
On Thursday, the I Am Cait star -- who supported Trump over opponent Hillary Clinton in the last election -- took to Instagram to reveal her thoughts about the new provisions... and she is PISSED!
The athlete begins by offering encouraging words to transgender youth everywhere, saying:
"I have a message for the trans kids of America. You are winning. I know it doesn't feel that way today or every day, but you _ are _ winning. You are going to keep on winning so much you're going to get sick of winning. Very soon, we'll win full freedom nationwide, and it's going to happen with bipartisan support. For all our friends out there, If you want to be part of this winning side, you can help by checking out the National Center for Trans Equality and letting Washington hear how you feel loud and clear."
However, the reality TV personality also has a VERY strong message for the haters, including some not-so-subtle shade thrown at Jeff Sessions:
