Donald Trump is even being mocked at the Olympics.

Courtesy of Yes Plz: 

President Donald Trump pushed, clawed, and bullied his way into office on an “America First” platform. At first listen that sounds okay—“yeah, America is great, we should take of ourselves.” But it’s really just a more euphemistic way of saying “Make America Great Again,” of which the second, unstated part is, “at the expense of everyone else.”

There was bound to be some razzing of Trump by other countries on the world stage, and it finally happened yesterday, after the women’s 3,000-meter speed skating. The Netherlands completely dominated—Dutch athletes took first, second, and third in the event, making for a full sweep and 100 percent Dutch representation on the medals podium. 

That’s when two women in the stands unfurled the flag of the Netherlands—red, white, and blue like the American flag, but all striped—with a message written on it.

Can't really blame them.

I mean is there anybody on the planet more mock-able than Donald Trump?

And good for the Dutch!

Taking first, second, and third in any Olympic event is a huge accomplishment.

    That's beautiful.
    Usually I have a lot of pride watching the Olympics. This Winter, I don't. My thoughts keep drifting. For instances, during the opening ceremonies: "there are so many countries with rich cultures who are better than us in every way...." During figure skating: "Russians , under any name, still get judging advantages even though they all train or trained in the US at one time or another"......Also, will Drumpf acknowledge our black and Asian athletes or just the white?

      Trump has done major damage to America and it's showing in the Olympics! He so badly needs to be impeached and run out of our country!

    Honestly, it's like being from a dysfunctional family and all the neighbors know what's going on.
    I grew up in a family like that and now I am getting those familiar feelings all over again. Why oh why did we have to fall into all this dysfunction again?
    Why oh why did red state voters have to be angry and chose a guy that answers all their prayers to do in the immigrants?
    Why oh why did Russia have to interfere in such a covert fashion that no one can quite put their finger on it?
    Why oh why did loud mouth needy Donald Trump have to be born?
    Sigh.

    "Netherlands speed skater Ireen Wüst became the first out medal-winner at the Pyeongchang Games" " figure skaters Eric Radford and Adam Ribbon both won medals in the men’s team event. Radford, a Canadian pairs skater, became the first openly gay athlete to win a gold medal at the Winter Olympics."

      Who would even want to paint the two of them? They are probably going to have to pay millions to get someone to actually do the job.

      Especially love the painting of President Obama! It's perfect!

    2. He’s got several portraits he’ll allow them to use for his official one. Probably that tennis one his “foundation” bought. Then he can write it off as a tax deduction.

    "The official Pyeongchang 2018 website went down hours before the opening ceremony, making it impossible for customers to print tickets or look up the events schedule. It took 12 hours for the site to get back online.

    And at the Pyeongchang Olympic stadium, where the opening ceremony was held, wifi went down and televisions in the press center stopped working,"

      America isn't doing as well as anticipated in the Olympics!

      And, Pence being there is/was a joke. What assholes we have representing America (political folks is who I mean). Wish Trump had had the balls to go because the reaction to him would have been fun to watch! But, he showed himself to be a big chicken! He knew he'd be ridiculed and booed if in attendance. He's so despised all over the world!

      I'll bet he was a whiney, cry baby type kid and drove his parents nuts!

    Re: VP Pence and his childish behavior with the N. Korean princess; good grief, guys, don't you know how to behave in public???

    We can't let Pence or Traitor Trump out in public at all. I feel like wearing a brown paper bag over my head when I read about some of the rude and disrespectful things they do and say. They act like drunken trash.

    "Was this a classic dangle operation, where the Russians offered to sell what the Americans wanted, only to substitute something designed to manipulate the buyer?

    Well, YEAH. But were they feeding us fake information to discredit the American intelligence agency, or was it real kompromat designed to discredit Trump?

    The Intercept suggests that it was likely real information.

    In December 2017, the Russian turned over documents and files, some of them in Russian. The documents appeared to include FBI investigative reports, financial records, and other materials related to Trump officials and the 2016 campaign.

    “The information was vetted and ultimately determined that while a significant part of it was accurate and verifiable, other parts of the data were impossible to verify and could be controversial,” the documents obtained by The Intercept state. It is not clear who vetted the material."

    Despite the wardrobe malfunction, I had an amazing time competing in my home country! I promise to sew myself in for the individual event. 😂 I would like to thank the audience for keeping us going until the end. Couldn't have done it without you guys ❤ #grateful

      "Canadian figure skater Eric Radford has said he "might explode with pride", after becoming the first openly gay Olympic champion at any Winter Games.
      Radford took gold at the Pyeongchang Games in the team figure skating event, alongside his partner Meagan Duhamel.
      The pair performed a beautiful routine set to Adele's Hometown Glory.
      US skater Adam Rippon, the first openly gay athlete to reach the US Winter Olympics team, won bronze in the same event at the Gangneung Ice Arena.
      He skated to Coldplay's O, and Arrival of the Birds by Cinematic Orchestra."
