@AsteadWesley So he didn't stand in respect for a sincere effort to resolve conflict and move toward peace. Guess that Apocalyptic Evangelical crap means diplomacy doesn't matter. Shameful.

Hey fool , the murder of OttO was not political , it was another day in the life of #NOKO @VP is a respectful man -btw -Otto's father was there as his guest in case you didn't know! #SundayMorning

@AsteadWesley @mr2ed But the VP is white, so the rules he demands don't apply to him.

@AsteadWesley Maybe he didn’t want to stand up because he got overly excited watching the gay figure skaters 😉

@AsteadWesley Just in case you couldn’t recognize the difference....

North Korea’s dictator is starving its people to death, keeps many in concentration camps and tortures many others

NFL players make millions, can travel the world and think whatever the hell they want

@AsteadWesley Goodness. After their poor etiquette last night at the IOC dinner with Kim Jung Un’s sister in attendance. They were so late that their chairs and china were taken away. They still barged in as everyone ate and said hello’s, except to Kim Jung Un’s sister. Skipped right by her.

@AsteadWesley The Olympics as we know it=122 yrs. What did the combined ATHLETES of the hosting nation & their neighbor do to deserve the disrespect shown? Poor showing by VP as a guest of Olympic host South Korea. #ShameOnYou

@AsteadWesley North and South Koreans described it as a positive experience that highlighted their similarities with hopes that it will lead to peace.

Who the F is Pence to be against this?

@AsteadWesley You're equating not standing for the dictatorship of North Korea, a country who we are technically still at war with, to disrespecting the flag of your own country, ok got it ..

@AsteadWesley Oh he walked out of a football game in Indy too. Spent millions to make a point. I can't wait til 2020. Trump will have been indicted but Pence actually thinks he will be president. After Trump the R's won't elect anyone for 20 years.

@AsteadWesley If that was the case, the American taxpayers wouldn't have been taken for over $250k when Pence & Mother conspired to stage a walkout at the Indianapolis Colts game last year. IOKIYAR

@AsteadWesley @VP So childish and foolish. VP should at least show respect for South Korea's efforts toward closure of 60 yr plus separation of and conflict between North and South Korea.

@AsteadWesley It was a truly momentous occasion. The world knew. What a diplomatic opportunity. It was said he only stood for the US. Pence should have stood for the entire ceremony, recognizing the equality of the competing nations. Instead, he sat aloof. Embarrassing to watch. No diplomat.

@AsteadWesley @LOLGOP I don’t get it: why didn’t he just stand up and walk out like he did the last time he pulled a politically motivated publicity stunt on the tax payer’s dime?

@AsteadWesley He's white, so it's ok.

@AsteadWesley He’s in THEIR country, not ours! South Korea is our ally, and they invited the North. Not our place to be disrespectful.

@AsteadWesley only when black NFL players are involved it seems like.

@AsteadWesley Ruling class = their own 'rules' don't apply to them.

Also, what scrap of humanity/conscience in him won't let him stand to face the folks he already knows they'll be dropping nukes on just ahead of the midterms.

@AsteadWesley Is that something like NFL players kneeling during the playing of the national anthem?

@AsteadWesley @KellyB1101 I thought the Olympics were about suspending political animosity? At least in contemporary times?
2 23
@AsteadWesley The Olympics were *designed* to encourage nations to set aside political differences.
Pence is politically tone-deaf.
And possibly emotionally, too.
Certainly ethically...
2 22
@AsteadWesley I know you want your RT’s and all but at least read the article lol. He didn’t stand for anyone but America, not saying that he should have done that but it clearly wasn’t a protest of any kind

@AsteadWesley yamerica is worried peace might break out between the 'two' koreas

@AsteadWesley That only applies when it’s people of color not standing

@AsteadWesley @JagbusAnne That rule does not apply to the thugs in the white house.
It only applies to the NFL players who are fighting for justice.

@AsteadWesley The Associated Press reports that the Pences didn’t stand for the entrance of any teams other than the U.S.’s.

If accurate, sitting was likely a matter of protocol rather than protest.

@AsteadWesley I thought that the Pence couple were rude NOT to have stood for Korean walk out at Olympics...this was a combined team and they should have stood, at least to acknowledge South Korea the Host Country...Just my opinon

This is dumb Asf. The only country that they stood for is the United States. Stop being ignorant ass wipes.

Such a stupid tweet. The Vice President of the United States not acknowledging a brutal, murderous totalitarian regime is so arrantly different than overpaid primadonna athletes making their unwanted opinions on social issues known by protesting by sitting out the national anthem

This is the second time (I know of) that Pence has pulled this type of hypocritical stunt.
He's no better than the #FakePresident he serves

Another Leftist clown who cant discern the difference between protesting a rogue enemy nation #NoKo and protesting his own countries flag, anthem and LEOs.

@AsteadWesley That sounds really ugly and unsportsmanlike. Was he angry because the two teams of athletes agreed to get along? If South Korea doesn't see fit to punish North Korea at the Olympics, why does Pence feel a need to? What kind of message does that send?

It’s an entrance. Not your own country’s national anthem.

@AsteadWesley It's fine to protest as long as you're protesting against minorities and not for them.

@AsteadWesley You failed at manners, diplomacy, and the Olympic spirit when you don't stand up to honour the HOSTING country's team. No matter who they chose to enter with. As well as ALL THE OTHER TEAMS. Actually, don't stand up, mother's husband, take a fricking seat for good. Or several.

@AsteadWesley I guess my question is does Trump use a dog bark control collar on Pence or did he have something custom made for humans? Whatever he opted for kudos..Pence is well trained.

@AsteadWesley If the point of the Pences' attending the Olympics was to show contempt for the North Koreans, they could have saved us some $ and just let #Presidementia tweet insults at Un. @realDonaldTrump @VP @POTUS #Impeach45

Pence is determined to throw away any chance of making a peaceful gesture at the Olympics. He refused to shake hands with Kim's sister, head of the North Korean delegation. Petty grandstanding.

Why is he supposed to stand for North Korea? This is so dumb it hurts.

@AsteadWesley It wasnt political protest, it was a mere lack of class by Pence, while representing the people of the United States of America.

@AsteadWesley it’s funny, because you know this is a completely different scenario yet you still tweeted it

Sort of Bush League and closes a door to Diplomacy at later dates.

@AsteadWesley So Pence is against taking a knee against police Brutality but ok with not standing & showing respect to two countries trying to make nice, at least during the Olympics?
Pence drinks a lot of 'hypocrisy' in his tea. @VP

I dont know which is funnier.
That people are upset about this, or that they are equating not standing for North Korea's athletes with kneeling for your own nation's flag and National Anthem.
