At Olympics opening ceremony, Pence refuses to stand for any country except the U.S.

Athletes from North Korea and South Korea marching under the same flag at the opening ceremonies of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games was a significant symbolic moment for all. Vice President Mike Pence, in Pyeongchang to direct the U.S. delegation, wasn’t impressed, nonetheless.

The Washington Post’s Anna Fifield described “huge cheers” when the unified Korea team entered the stadium on Friday. She also said it appeared that everyone in the VP’s box stood to acknowledge the moment — except Pence and his wife, Karen.

If Pence used the moment to create a political statement, it would be an interesting tactic, believing he walked from an NFL match last year because many players connected arms or took a knee during the playing of their national anthem — a silent protest against injustice and inequality that Pence just couldn’t bear to witness.
