While the World Stands Together, America (Literally) Sits on Its Ass

Vice President Mike Pence went to South Korea to represent the U.S. at the Olympics. He got into a bitch fight with a cool and collected gay U.S. skater and sat through the entrance of a united Korean team while all other leaders in the VIP box stood and applauded. Classy.

Leading from behind. No, leading on your behind.

Slate had it right. Mike Pence is best described as a jerk:
Name: Mike Pence
Home country: United States of America
Known for: Being Donald Trump’s vice president, leading the U.S. delegation to Pyeongchang, staging walkouts of sporting events, homophobia.
Why he might be a jerk: He’s Mike Pence. Case closed!
Slate adds more to be sure. Also, while we're at it, has there ever been a vice president so characterized -- aside from being a jerk -- as not knowing anything about anything? Just wondering.
