Look Who's Refusing to Stand During a Sporting Event Now


At the Olympic opening ceremony on Friday, Mike Pence, a man who has hair made of Lego and a heart made of stone, stayed seated as everyone else in the VIP box stood to applaud when athletes from North and South Korea entered the stadium under a unified flag.

Presumably, this was because North Koreans were involved, and Pence didn’t want to cheer them. But if you ask me, this seems a lot like Mike and Mother Pence were making a political statement by refusing to stand at a major sporting event. Which is interesting.

Remember back in October when Mike and Mother Pence also walked out of a football game on Trump’s orders because the 49ers took a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality? Pence announced that he had left the game because “President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.”

What a difference a few months make. Looks like Pence is a hypocrite in every sense of the term.
