That's why Johnny Weir is a figure skater ...

... and not a rocket scientist. Weir explained his choice of a vintage red CCCP warm-up jacket thus: "It's not that I'm anti-American or anything like that ... I just admire Russian culture and Russian skaters for their strength and their perseverance through everything they go through."

I get it, Johnny. So the logical way to honor Russian skaters is to wear a symbol of brutal artistic repression (not to mention the gulag, the the great terror, and the Ukrainian terror-famine).

I watched that too, KM and was like (wtf?).

Hey dude, if you love the Russian skaters and Russian culture, how's about wearing a red sweatshirt that says..."Russia"?

Exactly, WD! And I'll bet the Ukrainian and Polish skaters who know their recent history (isn't it strange to consign that evil empire to history?) are just *thrilled* with his statement.
