American Olympian Kim Rhode just became the first person in this year’s Olympics in Rio to medal in six consecutive events. However, you won’t be hearing about her accomplishments from the mainstream media.
According to American News, the liberal media has blacklisted Rhode because she is a proud Donald Trump supporter who is also an outspoken advocate for the Second Amendment. Because of this, she doesn’t fit the requirements of a liberal “champion” the way being the first woman to wear a hijab does.
This is especially unfortunate considering how remarkable Rhode’s background is. She began competing in skeet at age 10, and at 13 she won her first world championship title in women’s double trap shooting.
Back in 1996, she became the youngest female gold medalist in the history of Olympic shooting. Rhode then won a bronze in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney before getting a gold in Athens in 2004. In 2008, she won a silver in Beijing, but then she scored another gold in the 2012 Olympics in London.
Just by competing this year, Rhode became the first U.S. Olympian to qualify for an Olympic team on five different continents. She ended up winning another bronze medal in Rio, but don’t hold your breath on the mainstream media reporting on it…
