    'America's sweetheart' Adam Rippon donates his Olympic costume to the Smithsonian

    Figure skater Adam Rippon, the bronze medalist whose sparkle endeared fans at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea, is adding another feather to his hat. The 28-year-old announced on Twitter earlier this week he has donated one of his Olympic costumes — a bejeweled, blue-green, long-sleeved top, skintight black pants and skates — to the National Museum of American History. The museum does not have immediate plans to display the glittery outfit, but the outspoken Rippon has some suggestions about its placement. “Now, I just need to convince someone that they need to be next to the ruby slippers,” the “Dancing With the Stars” champion tweeted. Since 1979, the museum has continuously

    Pence: I'd take lie detector test over NYT essay

    The Latest on Vice President Mike Pence (all times local): 10:10 a.m. Vice President Mike Pence says he'd agree to take a lie detector test "in a heartbeat" to prove he isn't the author of an anti-Trump New York Times opinion piece. A top Pence aide has already said the vice president didn't write the anonymous piece criticizing President Donald Trump's leadership. Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has said Trump would be justified in using lie detectors to ferret out the anonymous essay writer. Trump hasn't said whether he'd go that far, but Pence says he's willing. Pence says during a taped "Fox News Sunday" interview: "I would agree to take it in a heartbeat and would submit to any review
