6-Time Olympic Medalist Kim Rhode: “How DARE Anybody Put Me In A ‘Basket of Deplorables’”

posted on September 17, 2016

In response to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s hateful “basket of deplorables” remark labeling Donald Trump supporters as “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it,” six-time Olympic medal winner Kim Rhode, the only triple Olympic champion, fired off an on-target tweet of her own: 

“Wife, mother, Olympian, proud supporter of the 2nd Amendment & how DARE anybody put me in a ‘basket of deplorables’!” Rhode tweeted above a photo of herself with a shotgun and a T-shirt reading, “Gun Owners for Trump.”

Rhode, you may remember, won the bronze medal at the Rio 2016 Olympics this summer, making her the first woman to medal in six consecutive Olympics. She’s also an honorary Life member of the NRA, and we’re proud to have her on our side.
