Mike Pence didn’t stand for the Korean athletes at the Olympicsand Twitter noticed the irony

Four months ago, Vice President Mike Pence made an expensive fabricated outrage when he attended an NFL game but then left before it began because players from both teams knelt during the national anthem. The Donald Trump administration has been adamant about musicians standing during the course of its carol with the president calling Colin Kaepernick a son of a bitch for is inadequate to do so.

So, when Pence didn’t stand for the unified Korean entrance during the course of its parade of nations at the Olympics Opening Ceremony on Friday, Twitter didn’t overlook the incongruity. And users called him out for what they said was flagrant hypocrisy.

Pence sat only a few feet away from Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un, but according to reports, they never spoke to each other. Pence and his wife, Karen, reportedly were the only people in that suite not to stand for the Korean delegation, which is now being made up of South Korean and North Korean athletes during the parade.

“The vice present applauded for the team he’s rooting for. He cheered for the USA, ” a U.S. bureaucrat said, via CNN. “That’s the team he’s going to be cheering for all Olympics. He wants them everyone to win awards. He’s biased for the Americans.”

This hasn’t been a great Olympics thus far for Pence. He was rent by openly gay figure skater Adam Rippon for his anti-LGBTQ panoramas, and freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, who’s likewise lesbian, wrote on Instagram, “The 2018 Winter Olympic Gaymes are officially under way! I’m so proud to be representing the LGBTQ community alongside this amazing guy! Eat your heart out, Pence.”
