Adam Rippon Tells Stephen Colbert He Would Talk to Mike Pence Post-Olympics

Adam Rippon hit Stephen Colbert‘s couch on The Late Show on Wednesday night (March 7) and opened up about initially declining to meet with Mike Pence during the 2018 Winter Olympics.

“You know while I’m training I usually turn down going to the movies with my friends,” the 28-year-old Olympian expressed. “So I was thinking that a phone call with the vice president might be more distracting than like going to Olive Garden. So I was like I don’t think this is the right time.”

“I thought it would be best that I focus on what my job was at that point in time and that was going to the Olympics, that was helping my team get a medal and that was skating as well as I could,” Adam continued. “I was able to do that, and now that it’s all over – if that opportunity is still out there, I would take that call.”

That same evening, Adam hit the carpet at the New York premiere of NBC’s Rise held at the Landmark Theatre.

    Do you know how hard it is to get to the Olympics. When you’re in a competition like that you have every right to be arrogant and self-absorbed. And as a gay man I would never, ever take a call from Mike Pence.
