Donald Trump Kim Jong Un impersonators thrown out of Olympics

In an extraordinary show of unexpected unity, North and South Korea sat side by side Friday night under exploding fireworks that represented peace, not destruction, as the 2018 Winter Olympics opened on a Korean Peninsula riven by generations of anger, suspicion and bloodshed.

Team USA usually marches into the Olympic stadium near the end of the opening ceremony.

The meat is officially classed as "detestable" in South Korea, and while the designation has no legal binding the tradition is now taboo among the younger generation who see the animals as pets and not livestock.

Kim's sister, Kim Yo Jong, was at the opening ceremony with North Korea's nominal head of state, 90-year-old Kim Yong Nam.

But Schoff said that by pouring cold water on hopes for better inter-Korean relations, Pence's stance could be viewed as critical of Moon's outreach to North Korea.

The North Korean artists performed Thursday in Gangneung, a coastal city that will host the skating, hockey and curling events during the games, and are to perform again in Seoul.

"All the athletes around me, all the spectators here in the stadium, and all Olympic fans watching around the world. we are all touched by this wonderful gesture", he said.

Check out the photo below: That's Kim Yo Jong on the far left, and Pence is just one row in front of her and four seats to the right.

None of the performers in the opening ceremony, which involves athletes from all over the world, were harmed in the incident.




The alpine town first bid for the 2010 Games but narrowly lost out to Vancouver, and suffered similar heartbreak when it was beaten to the 2014 Olympics by Sochi.

The significance of Pence and the North Koreans sitting in the same box seemed to run counter to the mission he was supposed to undertake.

PYEONGCHANG, SOUTH KOREA-In his address to a shivering crowd of 35,000, Lee Hee-Beom promised the Pyeongchang Winter Games would be "above all, a peace Olympics". During the parade of nations, they stood only for the USA team.

The Pences did not stand for the unified Korean team's entrance.

Athletes from the two Koreas marched in together under a white flag, which has a blue image in the shape of the Korean peninsula.

Members of the New Zealand Olympic Team are escorted into a welcome ceremony inside the Pyeongchang Olympic Village prior to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

North Korea has given no indication that it has halted, or even slowed, its pursuit of nuclear weapons despite outward signs of new co-operation with South Korea. "I want to still be alive for my race", he said.

United Nations deputy spokesman Farhan Haq told reporters at United Nations headquarters that Guterres sat near 90-year-old Kim Yong Nam at a dinner Friday night, and they were also near each other during the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. In a strong statement on the eve of the Olympics, the Court of Arbitration for Sport kept the delegation at 168 athletes, denying an appeal by several others to be allowed to compete in Pyeongchang.
