With all the love and unity surrounding the joint appearance of the North and South Korean Olympic teams at the opening ceremony, President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un decided it was time to end their war of words and embrace each other at the games in a show of solidarity.
Okay, none of that actually happened. But it sure did look like it did.
Two impersonators portraying Kim Jong Un and President Trump, caused quite a stir in the stands during the opening ceremony Thursday night. And given their incredible likeness to the two men, it’s easy to see why:

But all good things must come to an end. After causing a stir in the stands, the two “leaders” were led out of the stadium by a security team that obviously wasn’t feeling the good vibes:

As USA Today reports, “According to National Public Radio’s Melissa Block, the impersonators were escorted from the stadium by security staff just behind the media section.”
Still, it was fun while it lasted.
