Whoopi RIPS INTO Pence For Not Respecting North Korea At Olympic – IMMEDIATELY Regrets It!
Source and content: 6RQnn5
Move over CNN, Whoopi Goldberg has some things to say about the Vice President and it’s just as insightful and reasonable as the rest of the commentary that we’ve come to expect from The View. Goldberg joined her other, equally unbiased co-hosts to talk about the Olympic games in South Korea this month, and as always seems to happen, the discussion quickly migrated to politics.
The nations of the world are gathered to see who’s the best and who will be going home and trying harder for the next four years. The unexpected twist in this year’s winter games was the fact that North Korea and South Korea have united their athletes to compete together. This is unexpected for a couple of reasons, but the most prevalent is the fact that North Korea has been threatening to blow everyone off the map for the past year.
Because of the tyrannical dictator’s aggressive declarations of war, he’s not well loved by some, including the Vice President. Few people are as aware of the implications of what Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator, could do if he decided to make good on his promises. Because of that knowledge, Vice President Mike Pence decided that he didn’t want to respect that country, or it’s athletes at the Olympics. The bleeding heart liberals obviously had a problem with that. Newsbusters reports that more than one of them piled on, with Whoopi, of course, being the loudest:
“Monday on ABC’s The View, liberal co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar called Vice President Mike Pence a hypocrite for sitting down while North Korean athletes marched into the stadium at the Olympic Games this weekend. Whoopi complained that Pence didn’t not show North Korea their due “respect,” while Hostin compared Pence’s actions to the NFL anthem protests.
After explaining what Pence did, co-host Sunny Hostin sneered that Pence was being a hypocrite, since he famously walked out of a football game last year after NFL players kneeled during the National Anthem.
‘I thought that Mike Pence said that it was inappropriate to make political statements at sporting events?’ Hostin said sarcastically. ‘Wasn’t he that guy who walked out of the football game because people were kneeling and not standing?’ she added, condescendingly.
Playing devil’s advocate, Behar claimed Pence would say this was different because it wasn’t in the United States. ‘In their own country is what he would say to that,’ Behar offered.
‘But he’s representing the United States of America isn’t he?’ Hostin snarked.”
This argument was so flimsy, even Joy Behar couldn’t stomach letting it go by. A person not standing for their own national anthem, and not standing for the athletes of another country, is in no way the same thing.
