With the Olympics on television around the world, it’s hard not to notice the impact of Donald Trump on the games.  On Thursday, it was reported that Vice President Mike Pence, who is in the US delegate to the games, snubbed North Korean delegate Kim Yong Nam, according to Reuters. Pence reportedly refused to shake Yong’s hand at a dinner with political leaders, when he shook everyone else’s hand.  Pence  is also involved in a political tug of war with two out gay  American athletes, skater Adam Rippon and skier Gus Kenworthy. 

Also there is the  scandal, involving Trump’s favorite country Russia.  Only a few  Russian athletes  will be allowed to compete in this year’s games, after the World Anti-Doping Agency found evidence of systemic tampering with urine samples at the Sochi games.

But the      big headlines from the opening ceremony was the appearance of Trump and Kim Jong Il impersonators.

  1. In every walk of our life the likes and rudeness of Donald trump and friends have disgraced us, harmed us, and have attempted to destroy us. We must push back harder, we must call them out, we must expose them.
    We need Law enforcement, We need Mr. Mueller to arrest and convict those responsible and those that enabled the hackers that rigged our election. We must push back!!! The ground beneath our feet is the ashes of our grandfathers. All things are connected like the blood of our families.

  2. It amazes me how draft dodgers get all warlike and non athletes, wannabes, get all team centered as if they played for the team. One of the Olympic ideals is bringing us together through sportsmanship. We win or lose gracefully and we applaud the skill and accomplishments of out competitors. Trump, being a cheater in golf, probably has a problem with the treatment of Russians and any Olympic judges.

    Speaking of Olympics, why aren’t we recruiting gang members for biathlon? They are good runners, and they shoot on the run. Biathlon is basically cross country drive by shooting.
