In its first reports about the Games, North Korea’s state-run media slammed U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Saturday for what it called ‘shameful’ and ‘snobbish’ behavior not in line with the spirit of the Olympics. Pence fired off a tweet calling the North’s participation in the Games a ‘propaganda charade’ and saying the world must not ‘turn a blind eye to the oppression and threats of the Kim regime.’

Pence and the North Koreans have been an awkward presence at the Games to say the least.
