Skier Lindsey Vonn made a seamless transition from empowered feminist to damsel in distress on Tuesday after receiving backlash for her comments bashing President Trump.

From USA Today, “Lindsey Vonn on backlash to her Trump comments: Some ‘hoping I break my neck'”:

In an Instagram post on Tuesday morning, U.S. Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn described the backlash she has faced since her remarks about President Donald Trump on CNN last week.

Vonn wrote that she has received comments from people “hoping I break my neck.” Vonn had told CNN she would be representing “the people of the United States, not the president” in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Games.

Vonn, who recently suffered a minor back injury in Switzerland preparing for the Olympics, also wrote that some had told her, “God is punishing me for being ‘anti-Trump.'”

“My recent comments (with CNN about President Donald Trump) opened up my eyes as to how divided we are right now,” Vonn wrote, calling the comments “hurtful.”

Here’s her full statement:

As I head to France for the next races, I would like to share with you my reflections from the past few days. I’ve received a tremendous amount of feedback, both positive and negative, about my recent CNN interview. The point that I was trying to articulate is that all Olympic athletes represent their nation as a whole, and are not representatives of their government or any specific political figure or party. None of us work tirelessly for years on end to compete in the Olympics on behalf of Democrats or Republicans. The Olympics are a non-political event, a chance for everyone to put aside their differences and be on the same “team.”. That does not mean that Olympic athletes don’t have political opinions. As an American, I am extremely proud that our great nation was founded on principals and ideals where citizens can express our opinions openly. It is a privilege that some others around the world don’t have. I am proud to be an American, and I want our country to continue to be a symbol of hope, compassion, inclusion and world unity. My travels around the world have recently made clear that this is no longer how people view the United States. You cannot pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV in Europe without noticing how people are questioning our direction. It seems to me that we must lead with understanding and strive for unity in our relationships throughout the world. As for myself, my recent comments opened up my eyes as to how divided we are right now. It is hurtful to read comments where people are hoping I break my neck or that God is punishing me for being “anti-Trump.” We need to find a way to put aside our differences and find common ground in communicating. Is it wrong to hope for a better world? All of this is much bigger than skiing and the Olympics. I am going to take the next two months to focus on what I can do and right now that is competing for my country. In doing that, I will be hoping that we Americans can still be that “shining city on a hill.”

Translation: the European fake news media is making fun of us, therefor I threw our country under the bus to be accepted.

You libs need to decide whether our nation was founded by evil, patriarchal, white supremacist slave owners or progressive liberals who supported open borders and feminism, because it can’t be both.

It’s the same situation with you posing as an empowered feminist only to turn into a damsel in distress as soon as it suits you.

These contradictions can’t be photoshopped away.

    Hope the backlash gets worse andd she gets removed from the team. I do not want someone reprisenting the country that disrespects the President. Oh and that is comming from someone who did not vote for Trump.

  • It is not Paranoia

    …just don’t kill yourself over stupid internet comments.

  • rouge1

    My recent comments (with CNN about President Donald Trump) opened up my eyes as to how divided we are right now,” so I decided to stir the pot of divisiveness and got burned. What a nasty bitch.

    I will never drink another Red Bull.

    • Frank Energy

      Oh shit, does she represent Red Bull, I may have to boycott

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      Easy peasy – I’m not sure if I’ve ever had a Red Bull. . .

    The reason our country is being looked at like this is because of the mainstream media and their constant divisive rhetoric, blatantly biased reporting, and never ending Trump bashing.
    She even said that in Europe, you can’t watch tv or pick up a newspaper without seeing something negative about the US. The media is responsible for the way people think of us. Maybe not entirely, but to a high degree.
    And when people like Lindsey make such divisive statements, it adds to this negative image she is seeing everywhere. She is now a part of that negative image.
    She knew what she meant when she said not the president. She didn’t mean “not just the president”, she meant not Trump. Not that she isn’t allowed to have her own opinion, but she can’t expect to make such a statement and not have people express their own opinion.
    She should expect people to respond when she makes a negative comment about the president. I don’t think it was right for people to wish her harm, but she should expect some blowback.
    And maybe she should start taking her own advice too. She could be a part of the solution, instead of being part of the problem.

    Don’t blame her—being a great athlete has little to do with functioning brain cells—muscles and coordination do not equal intelligence and rational thought.

  • toktomi

    Lindsey Vonn, what an amazing creature – physically. I have yet to encounter any evidence that her intellectual capabilities are anything above sophomoric. But she can pack water in my camp any day.

  • Awakemama

    That’s an extra long ring finger…{running quickly away}

  • Joel W

    Personally I could not rationalize her saying that. Of course she, or any other Olympian, are not representing Trump. None have ever represented any President. Virtue signalling twit.

  • Jeff

    It must a strange God that makes Lindsey Vonn take a fall right after bashing President Donald Trump. If Vonn were smart enough she might be asking herself: “If God is for Trump, then who could God be against?”

    Great photo of this libtard. Another empowered idiot. What the hell did Tiger Wood see in her?
    Careful when you are skiing that the last thing you ever see is a tree.
