S wing and a kiss!

Former President Donald Trump appeared to be snubbed on stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas on Saturday night while welcoming swimmer Riley Gaines to the event.

Gaines, who competed on behalf of the University of Kentucky against Lia Thomas (a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman) and has since spoken out against the athlete, was being introduced by Trump when the former president leaned in to kiss her on the cheek as a greeting.

Swimmer Riley Gaines dodges Trump as he tries to kiss her on stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas on Saturday.


Video of the incident shows Gaines appearing to pull her head away from Trump's before leaning back in slightly. Trump then appeared to say something to the young athlete, but it does not appear in the video as if they made contact.

Gaines then went on in her speech to say she is fighting to "keep female sports female."

As she finished her remarks, she thanked the former president, and he appeared to try a second time to give her a kiss on the cheek.

Gaines has been critical of Thomas’s participation in women’s collegiate swimming, saying the NCAA failed to protect the integrity of women’s sports.

"Is this really happening?" Gaines recalled saying. “We’re sitting there not even knowing who to talk to, who to complain to, because this kind of all happened behind the scenes and very discreetly."

Blogger, did you actually watch President Trump's speech? "Appears to snub"? They were trying to move out of each other's way in front of the microphone, for Pete's sake!
