Red Gerard/Donald Trump 2020?

Snowboarding and politics rarely collide, but when they do, we guess it is our job to report on it? In the latest media tour for Red Gerard and Team USA, they made a stop at the White House. Red isn’t old enough to vote yet so we won’t get into who we think he would have voted for, but will just state the fact that the current person in the office has repeatedly tweeted about his disbelief in climate change. We will stick to just the facts.

Red Gerard visited the White House along with members of Team USA (including snowboarders Chase Josey, Kyle Mack, Jake Pates, and more) and was called up to the podium, had an awkward handshake/tug/hug with Mr. Trump, and then left. Notably missing from the event was Chloe Kim and Shaun White, which makes us wonder if that was a choice or just a scheduling conflict.
