Adam Rippon Ices White House Invitation To Meet Donald Trump: 'I Will Not Stand With People Who Discriminate'

| Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpOlympics

Adam Rippon politely rejected an invitation from the White House to meet Donald Trump with members of the 2018 U.S. Winter Olympic and Paralympic Teams, because… well, did anyone actually expect him to go??

The Olympic figure skater announced that he was skipping out on the visit Friday morning, noting that he "will not stand with people who discriminate against those that they perceive as different." He would instead be donating to causes like GLAAD, Planned Parenthood, and the Red Cross.

Plenty of other athletes joined Rippon in rejecting their invitations. Skiers Lindsey Vonn, Mikaela Shiffrin, and Gus Kenworthy, and flag bearer Erin Hamlin also opted to pass on the trip to D.C..

Trump didn't end up alone on Friday, of course — dozens of athletes from the Winter Games showed up to the party. Only it's not really a party without Adam Rippon, is it?

Adam Rippon & Gus Kenworthy

This is what dreeeams are made of!

American idols Adam Rippon and Gus Kenworthy star on the cover of OUT Magazine's newest issue, which debuted on Thursday! The Olympians looked as hot as ever in the black-and-white image (above) — and oh yeah, they're shirtless, too!

In the interview, the athletes open up about how their friendship blossomed IRL after connecting online and how close they've gotten since competing at PyeongChang! Not to mention, their experience as out and proud American athletes! Seriously, we're so proud.

Adam said of their initial meeting at the opening ceremony:

"You know, it was really important for me to find Gus. We joke around a lot, but being able to experience the opening ceremony with somebody that I know has felt a lot of those same feelings as me was important. I thought of everything I had been through as a young kid to get to that moment, and to feel confident, and to feel that I really liked who I was."

Gus added:

"The opening ceremony is obviously a very big deal — it's ceremonial, and a rite of passage in a way. But I didn't have the best Olympics experience the first time around, in Sochi. I felt like a fraud. I wasn't being myself. I had a boyfriend at the time that I wasn't telling anybody about — and I wasn't out to my parents. And then post-Games every interviewer asked me, "Who's your celebrity crush? What's your type of girl? What's your ideal date?" And I was just lying. And I hated myself for it. So to be in Pyeongchang, and get to walk into this huge stadium as myself, as an out gay man, and do it alongside Adam was the biggest, best moment of my entire life. And that was why it was so important for me to find him. Because I felt like we had the same story, and I wanted to share that moment with him. It was the highlight of the entire Games for me."

Of being out gay athletes representing people back home who are against you (looking at you, Mike Pence), Gus said:
