PYEONGCHANG, South Korea - U.S. Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy had less-than-kind words for one of his fellow Americans at the closing ceremony for 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
“So proud of all these people!” he said after sharing a picture. “Everybody here has worked so hard to make it to the Olympics and have the opportunity to walk in the closing ceremony!”

“Well… Everyone except Ivanka,” he continued, mentioning the first daughter. “Honestly, tf is she doing here??”
Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump's daughter, led the presidential delegation in the closing ceremonies. Vice President Mike Pence appeared at the beginning of the Olympics to lead the presidential delegation in the opening ceremonies. Pence made headlines when he sat down for the Korean delegation, which included athletes from both North and South Korea.

Christ. Who cares that's she's there. It's the Olympics. There are a lot of people there.— Theresa Lundy (@TheresaMarie16) February 25, 2018
She has every right to be there as a rep to the President. I bet you didn't say one word when anyone from the Obama Administration attended past Olympics. It's hateful stuff like this that keeps this country divided.— Chris Kowitz (@themancalledroy) February 25, 2018
Others made political jokes at Ivanka Trump’s expense.
