Snowboarder Shaun White apologized Wednesday for dragging a U.S. flag on the snow after his dramatic gold medal victory in the men’s halfpipe, but said he did not know he had let the flag touch the ground. “I remember being handed the flag but I was trying to put my gloves on and hold the flag and get board,” he told reporters afterward. “Honestly, if there was anything, I definitely didn’t mean any disrespect." "The flag that’s flying on my house right now is way up there. So sorry for that," White continued. "But I’m definitely proud — very proud — to be a part of Team USA and being an American and to be representing for

Comments:
Anyone watching the event last night knows just how emotional this win was for him and why. He proudly wrapped himself in the American flag and represented our country beautifully. As a Gold Star Parent, he gets a pass from me. His actions were completely unintentional and I am proud to have him represent this country.

I´ve followed his career. I don´t hold this against him, although the other matter is a problem.

Shaun White is a good guy who was profoundly emotional and weeping uncontrollably at having won gold. He clearly meant no disrespect. The contemptible haters who cheer wildly when the American flag is desecrated and burned are the disgusting creeps who are howling in mock outrage.

White was emotionally drained after winning, that was clear. What´s not clear is if he even knew not to let the flag touch the ground. Someone his age, in this country now may have never heard of flag etiquette. I´m assuming he´s a product of Department of Education/NEA controlled schools.

Yeah, give the guy a break... probably one of the biggest days in his life, lots of emotions, trying to walk around... he´s a good guy who´s represented his nation well.

Cut him some slacks. He wasn´t stomping, burning, spitting, tearing or kneeling against the flag like the LOSERs do. He was, ...in the moment, in the zone, and soaking it in. However, he may have a bigger issue that´s coming to haunt him. Hope he survives.

I, too, saw his win and the emotion he displayed. When I saw the flag being dragged I knew instinctively that someone would criticize him. One could see he was overcome with joy and he happily wrapped himself in the flag. It was as he left the area part of the flag was on the ground. Give him a break.

You know if this guy was an illegal (and we all Know Obambi would stock the team full if he had the chance) then the media would be praising him for his brave protest against the white devil slave masters that run the US.

## Someone his age? He is 31!!

Having said that I watched the entire thing unfolding. Yes, he was emotional. He was not paying attention when teh flag was handed over to him. He should have instantly wrapped it around him, instead which he was tottering around

Different times, different generation. I was born in ‘43 and back then it was instinctive in all of us that you would throw yourself on a live grenade before the flag was allowed to touch the ground - no matter what the situation.

Watched & shouted at TV - surely someone near him should have prompted him or picked it up for him; glad he apologized as he needed to. I don´t think he did it deliberately, but it´s just as wrong to drag it on the ground & step on it whether deliberate or not. Those around him that saw it are guilty of omission. He should have left it wrapped around his shoulders as first done - ´tho even that isn´t right to do. IIRC you don´t wear the flag as an item of clothing i.e., a shawl or cape. We´re so used to making acceptable that which is unacceptable we end up in situations like this.

I don´t believe Shaun did this on purpose or meant any disrespect. And he apologized without any "buts" thrown on the end.

Sadly, most people under 50 have not been raised to truly respect the flag and handle it properly.

Thank you, #11. The flag is not a piece of clothing and it gripes me every time someone hands one to the winning athlete after every competition because you know they´re going to drape it around themselves like a shawl. It´s worse during the track and field events, worst after a relay. Carl Lewis allegedly had a huge flag planted with a coach in the stands, to whom he immediately ran after winning the 100 meters and then paraded around far too long with it.

Snowboarding is a sport added to assure the USA receives some additional gold medals at the Winter Olympics. Nothing but skateboarding on snow, and I don´t see a skateboarding event in the Summer Olympics. Pretty much fed up with the Olympics. It´s hardly amateur sports any more.

I am one year older than #9 and I am cutting the Gold Winner some slack. He didn´t know it was dragging. He deserves our standing up for him. At least he didn´t get down on one knee in the ultimate disrespect like those American demi-gods, the NFLers

Anyone looking for proof that the disgraced American media could not care less about dead children need only take a few minutes to survey the various national news platforms. While the jaw-dropping list of local and federal law enforcement failures continues to mount, all of our corrupt media’s energy is focused on blaming the completely innocent NRA for Wednesday’s school-shooting massacre. All the way back in September, the FBI was informed that a YouTube user named Nikolas Cruz was publicly bragging about wanting to become a “professional school shooter.” On Wednesday, a guy named Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 people in a Florida high school.

President Donald Trump has asked the Pentagon to plan a grand parade of the U.S. armed forces in Washington this year to celebrate military strength, officials said Tuesday. The Washington Post, which was first to report the plan, said Trump wants an elaborate parade this year with soldiers marching and tanks rolling, but no date has been selected. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the request Tuesday evening. She said Trump wants the Pentagon to “explore a celebration” that will allow Americans to show appreciation for the military.

President Donald Trump was greeted with a booming chorus of cheers mixed with some boos as he took the field Monday for the national anthem ahead of the college football title game between Georgia and Alabama. The president, flanked by military members, stood near the 40-yard line with his hand on his heart as the anthem played. Another wave of cheers and jeers followed him as he left the field. Trump arrived in metro Atlanta around 6 p.m. to take in the all-Southeastern Conference matchup between the two powerhouses. His motorcade caused gridlock and long lines outside the sold-out stadium.

Students are in the middle of a lie-in protest outside the White House over gun laws just days after 17 people were killed in the Florida high school shooting massacre. Groups of students from Washington DC staged the protest on Monday on a road leading to the White House. They took turns lying on the road for three minutes - the same amount of time 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a firing spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week. Other students stood by holding signs that read ´Am I next?´ and ´Is Congress or the NRA making our

Chris Hughes, a co-founder of Facebook and chair of the Economic Security Project, has a proposal to attack the problem of rising income inequality through a basic income, a system of wealth distribution in which people receive a standard salary just for being alive. And he wants to pay for it by raising taxes on the one percent. (Snip) To pay for this, Hughes proposes bringing tax rates on the top 1% of earners in the country to 50% — which is in line with the historical average, he said. The idea is to provide people with a reliable income

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

Outspoken leftist and "Grey´s Anatomy" star Ellen Pompeo challenged Fox News host Laura Ingraham, whom she referred to as a "b****", to a physical fight on Friday. For real. "Someone tell this b**** to meet me outside," wrote Pompeo, referring to Ingraham, via Twitter. "Im [sic] so not in the mood for playing nice or polite this week." (Snip) The actress was reacting to a video clip, which she quote-tweeted, of Ingraham suggesting NBA star LeBron James quit the political activism and "shut up and dribble" — a reference to her 15-year-old book titled "Shut Up & Sing." Pompeo continued the taunting,

GOP Utah Senate candidate Mitt Romney is changing his tune on President Donald Trump from where he was one year ago. Trump endorsed Romney late Monday evening, giving the former failed presidential candidate “full support and endorsement.” Romney responded almost immediately, thanking the president for his kind words and for backing him the upcoming election. “Thank you Mr. President for the support. I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah,” Romney tweeted late Monday evening. Romney’s statement Monday is strikingly different from ones he has previously made

Just one day after the shooting massacre last week at a Florida high school, the woman who cared for the alleged shooter and his brother filed court papers seeking control of their inheritance, which could total up to $800,000, according to the New York Post. Roxanne Deschamps also had Zachary Cruz, the brother of shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz, involuntarily committed to a mental facility shortly after the massacre, the Post reported, citing a family source. Deschamps, a longtime family friend of the Cruz brothers, began looking after them after their adoptive mother, Lynda, died of pneumonia in November.

Los Angeles County´s homeless population is increasing faster than the supply of new housing, even with the addition of thousands of beds in the last two years and millions of dollars beginning to flow in from two ballot measures targeting the crisis, according to a long-awaited report by the region´s homelessness agency. The report showed that officials two years ago far underestimated how much new housing would be needed when they asked city and county voters to approve the tax measures.

“From my cold, dead hands!” – Charlton Heston Liberals love to fantasize about confiscating every gun in America. It may be their most beautiful dream. Liberals get control of the Supreme Court and ignore the Second Amendment; Washington makes gun ownership illegal; almost all the guns come pouring in or are destroyed; a few hapless Jim Bobs who won’t get in line get shot up by the cops and then the government is free to do anything it wants and if people don’t like it, well, what are they going to do about it without guns?
