Trump and Kim impersonators thrown out of Winter Olympics

Winter
Olympics security guards had to throw US President Donald Trump and
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un out of the Opening Ceremony on Friday.




At least, that’s how it looked – but the
pair were in fact impersonators who had made their way into the stands
for the ceremony before swiftly being shown out by security staff.

“We
wanted to surprise everyone and bring world peace and then we’re being
escorted out by security guards, which I think is really unfair,” the
Kim impersonator said. “Doesn’t everyone want peace?”

Is my sister getting the same treatment?

The ceremony was marked by a show of unity between North and South Korea.

But the lookalikes’ own show of unity – “We’re getting along great,” the Kim lookalike boasted – was less well received.

The
appearance by the celeb-mimicking pranksters clearly touched a nerve at
a politically intense time for the US, North Korea and South Korea. 

Athletes
from both Koreas entered the arena under a flag depicting a unified
Korea as American Vice-President Mike Pence and Kim’s sister, Kim
Yo-jong, watched on from a VIP box.

“Is my sister getting the same treatment?,” the Kim lookalike said as he was escorted out of the stadium.

While
the appearance of the two faux politicians was in good jest, the
opening ceremony was troubled by another, more worrying intruder who
attempted to accost two performers.

Just
after the two Koreas had marched into the stadium behind the
blue-and-white unification flag, a man made a daring entrance, sliding
down a long icy chute to reach the performers before being wrestled out
by security officials.

He
was tackled by Olympic security and thrown out. Police said no arrests
were made, while South Korea organisers confirmed the incident but were
unable to give further details.

The invasion
came just after the two Koreas had marched into the stadium behind the
blue-and-white unification flag, possibly indicating the stunt was
politically motivated.

As
the two Koreas marched together in sub-zero temperatures, South Korea’s
president shared a historic handshake with Kim Jong-un’s sister as the
Games marked a thaw in the often frosty relations on the peninsula.

However,
just a block from the Olympic a few dozen protesters raged against the
presence of North Korean athletes and officials at the Games, tearing up
a North Korean flag as emotions ran high.









LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATE

Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
