We'll just have our own Olympics. I'm guessing the US will win gold in all categories. Good for us.

Tensions with NK, potential attack on Olympic athletes, etc. Coming from Nikki Haley actually.

I mean, our president did call Un a little fat man, so...

That and they banned Russia. Have to show solidarity with our future overlords and the man who's made our president his bitch.

Wouldn't this really amount to "terrorism winning." We don't negotiate with terrorists.

one, sanders has already walked that back


two, does the president have any say on who competes in the olympics? its not like being an olympian is a federal position or that we're totalitarian and a president can determine that.

I lol'd really hard at the absurdity of the tweet

then Haley's justification made me struggle to remember if we're still at war with Eastasia now, or if it's Oceania

Whatever dude.

Our Dear Leader and Forever President, King Trump, can do as he pleases and we just have to take it.
Long live the king!

The Winter Olympics are our jam. White people don't have much else to be good at.

Swam with a guy who had the world record in 200 IM and a world class butterflyer. He qualified for three events plus what ever relay he would be on in 1980. Never had another chance to go

we're pretty good at colonization & repressing people of color. So in the Olympics of life we're Michael Phelps.

he doesn't have a say in who, individually, competes. But he does make the final call on whether or not we go as a country. It was Carter (at least I'm pretty certain) that made the final decision not to go in 1980.

i feel like they cant enforce it.
perhaps a president can declare it and the athletes can comply, or agree with the president.

and if its about fearing for american safety, would the media be barred from attending?

Watch every medal-winning american athlete take a knee on the podium.

Bonus points if he/she is a combat veteran

:)

I wonder if that is actually the case. If so I will have to give some respect to the administration that they are able to control it so well.

I’d think each sports federation would have to agree not to send any teams

It was Carter who said "eat a dick" to the USSR in 1980.

That being said, while the USOC gets it's majority $ from the feds, they could tell trump to get bent and go anyways.

someone will spin it as "the IOC is corrupt" and that we should be holding these games in Grenoble or some shit like that.....

I thought it was the USOC, which could be pressured but not controlled by the president

isn't that the way it went down with Carter in 1980?

yes MiD.....

but now we have the issue with the networks spending big $ and advertisers spending bigger $ for the games.

pretty sure if the russkies and 'murica don't show up that the TV ratings will be lower than a broke dick dog here.

I like the Olympics and hope this won’t happen.

Nikki Haley speaks with her teeth clenched. Weird
