I don’t want to overuse the word “cringe, ” but if there was ever the perfect lesson of said word, this exchange with Michael Phelps would be it.
A reporter with the ebullience of seven puppies leaped on the Olympic swimmer as soon as he stroked down at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
He expected Phelps how he feels to be back on US soil, and the athlete wasn’t having any of it 😛 TAGEND
I’m not answering all the issues people. If you could give me that infinite while I try to get my family residence and safe, I would appreciate that.
If you guys want to do an interrogation you can contact my agency.
I appreciate you guys coming, but I’m trying to get their own families residence safe and that’s what matters the most.
Thank you for understanding.
He disappeared proper protective pa mode on that reporter’s ass.
GREAT JOB, MICHAEL.
You’ve got to give that reporter some recognition. He plowed through that piling of awkwardness like a champ.
Phelps’ arrival home was far less dramatic than his teammate’s.
On Wednesday Ryan Lochte was also invited to cede his passport to Brazilian authorities who are investigating his tale about a robbery.
The swimmer was already home at this stage, but teammatesGunnar Bentz and Jack Conger were gathered off their flight residence to answer questions.
James Feigen, who was supposed to be on the same flight, didn’t even been demonstrated at the airport.
According to Lochte’s account of events, the four swimmers were returning home from a nighttime on the town when the taxi they were in got pulled over.
Men brandishing police badges prescribed them to lay on the ground.
Lochte repudiated, and one of “the mens” cocked his grease-gun and placed it directly at his forehead, he told NBC.

He said the men made off with their fund and his billfold but left their phones and credentials.
But Brazilian powers aren’t buying it. They’re now sayingLochte lied about the accident.
