Continuing the 2018 tradition of U.S. Olympians feuding with the Donald Trump administration, freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy took a Twitter shot at Ivanka Trump during the closing ceremony on Sunday.

Basically, he wondered why she was in attendance, though he had a slightly more colorful way of asking it.

Kenworthy has been particularly noteworthy this Olympics. He and figure skater Adam Rippon are the first openly gay Olympians for the U.S., and both criticized Vice President Mike Pence for his anti-LGBTQ views and for being the head of the U.S. delegation for the opening ceremony.

He made news with this kiss …

… And he saved a puppy from a dog meat farm by adopting her.

Though the Olympics are over and though he only finished 12th in skiing slopestyle, his shot at Ivanka Trump probably scored high with those who judge the neverending Twitter burn competition.
