Sports uniting Korea's after 67-years

Olympics

If North Korea and South Korea can come together despite Trumps punk ass, the so can we Americans.

“They only understand one thing,” Dumb Donald said on social media last September about North Korea. South Korea has proven that Trumps provocative talk does not work, at least with Koreans. The divisive rhetoric was charmingly for Americans. Neo Nazis are seeing a surge in popularity not seen before in the history of the country. While blacks and whites have never been more divided.

So, good for the Koreans for coming together after nearly 70 years to become allies by talking with each other and finding common ground first with the Olympic Games which have fared well and now are both enjoying post games success to the chagrin of the current US administration.
