Walking termite buffet Mike Pence is in South Korea for the Olympics and his unique brand of diplomacy continues apace:
“U.S. Vice President Mike Pence made only a brief appearance at a reception marking the start of the Winter Olympics on Friday, avoiding a potentially awkward encounter with the ceremonial leader of North Korea attending the same event.
“…Pence shook hands with other leaders, including close ally Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, but not Kim Yong Nam, according to a Blue House pool official.”
Well, to be fair, Mother doesn’t like Pence to touch other women lest he be tempted by the she-devils to fornicate on the spot. Never can let your guard down, you know. Regardless of why, it has the effect of insulting your friend’s date at a party.
“The reception in the mountain resort of Pyeongchang came hours before North and South Korean athletes marched together at the opening ceremony, the culmination of months of work by Seoul, which seeks to use the Olympics to ease tension spurred by North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear weapons.”
And didn’t he say as recently as last week, he would be open to meeting with the North Koreans as long as he was there? Sumpin’ about nuclear ambitions?
One outlet noted that during the opening ceremony, Pence abruptly sat down when the combined North and South Korean athletes entered the stadium, which was kind of a slap in the face to his host, again, too/also. Probably under strict orders from Comrade Stupid, you know, like when going to NFL games.
