Rescind his medals. He doesn't represent the USA.

When Trumpistan gets a chance to compete, he can join them.

Do not let him represent the US in future international competition. Maybe he can represent Mother Russia

That's a butterfly-kickable face if I ever saw one.

Looking at ol Mr. Pudgy in the article, I don't think that's a possibility anymore.

Post-college, Keller now works as a Brokerage Associate for the Colorado and Ohio-based real estate agency Hoff and Leigh where he "spends his time advising industrial landlords and sellers on maximizing the value of their industrial asset."

Post-insurrection Keller is unemployed without benefits and is awaiting arrest by Federal law enforcement agents.

Klete? Is there some organization of expecting parents that's trades in stupid names?

Great job, astronaut, war hero and/or Olympian -- with your help, we're gonna change the world! This on? [thump thump] Hey. Listen up out there. That thing up ahead's called an elevator. Not a bathroom.

When swimmers quit swimming 20+k a day they pudge up real fast. A friend of mine gained 50lbs on summer when we were about 15 and blew out both his elbows when he got back in the water in the fall.

Klete Keller?  Is his middle name Kyle?

Well son, you used to be an Olympian. Now you're just a traitor.

FTA: In another video by the same reporter, Keller can be seen standing calmly in the Rotunda holding a bottle of water.

He then poured it over his head, ripped off his clothes, and swam a dry lap of treason.

They responded that he was a current employee, and they seemed unaware of the Capitol video or of Keller's possible involvement in the riot.

He's since been scrubbed from their website.

Wow another person pissed away their reputation, job, and maybe freedom on Trump. And Trump won't life a finger to help any of them, hope it was worth it aholes. Loyalty only flows one way with Trump and these morons still haven't seen it after four years.

Is that "Real Americans" or citizens and residents of the United States of America? Because they seem to be different groups to you.

I'm going to assume that Arron Copland was Aaron Copland's pirate brother.

Is wearing one's Olympic jacket years after the event the same as wearing one's high school varsity letterman jacket years after graduating?
