Perhaps the most showy appearance at the Seoul WInter Olympics opening ceremony was that of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, accompanied by the President of the United States Donald Trump.
Or rather an Australian Kim Jong-Un impersonator called Howard and an American Donald Trump lookalike called Dennis Alan.
Though as the world’s media snapped away at them the pair were rather unceremoniously ejected from the opening ceremony after causing a commotion.

The impressionists wanted “to show the world this is what peace can loook like when two leaders get along,” said Howard, adding:
“Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un they will – if they talk – they will probably get along, because in my opinion they are pretty much the same people.”
These Trump + Kim Jong Un impersonators caused quite a stir shortly after Team USA marched in the Parade of Nations. pic.twitter.com/oET7j2skMy

Trump impersonator met Kim Jong Un impersonator, and they left peacefully together. The Olympic Spirit at its best. https://t.co/cFsiCZEXJw

Since you’re here …
More worrying is the staggering decline in independent, investigative journalism. It costs a lot to produce, so many publications facing an uncertain future can no longer fund it.
With nobody to hold the rich and powerful to account, or report on the issues that don't fit with the mainstream 'narrative', your help is needed.
You can help support free, independent journalism for as little as 50p. Every penny we collect from donations supports vital investigative journalism.
