Jemele Hill weighs in on Mike Pence’s decision not to stand for the combined Korean team’s entrance

Jemele Hill has some thoughts about Mike Pence’s actions on Friday.

Friday, during the opening ceremony for the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, United States Vice President Mike Pence reportedly chose not to stand for the combined Korean team’s entrance, despite being seated in a box with a number of South Korea’s leaders. The Associated Press has more:

"The White House official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Pence stood only for the U.S. team, despite other people in the box standing and applauding when athletes from the two Koreas walked in together. The games are taking place amid an international standoff over North Korea’s nuclear weapons."

Jemele Hill, who recently left her role as SportsCenter anchor, used her newfound social media freedom to address the topic. Hill called it “ironic” that Pence would choose an athletic event to make a political statement.

Hill, of course, is alluding to former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel for the national anthem two seasons ago. His decision sparked a movement that included a number of NFL players following suit.

Many countered, suggesting it’s a bit unfair to compare Kaepernick’s decision to kneel for the national anthem with Pence’s decision to sit for anything North Korea-related.

Hill responded to those criticizing her on that front as well. Check it all out below, via Twitter:

The Winter Olympics kicked off earlier this week, but the Opening Ceremony didn’t take place until Friday. We’ll keep you updated on all things Olympics-related.
