Mike Pence Showed Up Late To VIP Olympics Reception, And Didn't Get A Seat

By Chet Dawson

Vice President Mike Pence was left standing at a VIP event at the Winter Olympics.

The dinner celebrating the opening of the Winter Games on Friday night played host to world leaders, but organizers weren't expecting the Vice President. By the time he strolled in, the event had already started. Awkward.

The Veep was supposed to be dining with U.S. athletes. Instead, he basically crashed the VIP reception and stayed long enough to gladhand everyone he could. Or almost everyone.

Pence ignored the delegation from North Korea, whose presence in South Korea was a first since the war that divided their countries.
