I Am So Ashamed

I watch Mike Pious Pence and I am disgusted. Yes North Korea is a brutal horrid place. And yes they are developing weapons that threaten the whole world. But here we are at the Olympics and it is about the athletes and the competition, not regimes and we can’t get off our ass and welcome the North Korean team. Aren’t we bigger than that? North Korea may become a pariah of the world, but for this moment can it not be about nationalistic posturing and be about the common human experience of competition and giving it your all. President Moon may have it right. It will be the interaction of North Korea with the rest of the world that will be the biggest weapon we have to bring them out of the dark. And America stands and turns their back on them. I am so ashamed. We are being destroyed and soiled by Trump and his cronies. Hopefully our athletes will engage for a moment of human to human, something the Administration of President DFF has never experienced or we would not be expelling Dreamers. I am so ashamed.
