I feel so bad for the winter olympians being forced to compete in winter temperatures with where it’s so cold that water is literally frozen into ice and snow is falling from the sky instead of a snow machine!

THE HORROR!!!

Cold can be dealt with, to an extent. Extreme heat, on the other hand, cannot.

Better than too warm. We can all look forward to sweltering in the summer heat in 2020...

Haven't these people heard of coats?

Moron Moon of SK probably thinks that his bending over to NK and its farce cheerleaders will warm the hearts of everyone present. Don't worry, the Korean peninsula will heat up very quickly very soon

Wonder if they can do their best under such terribly cold weather.  Too cold weather is inappropriate place for games.

Fancy that, a cold Winter Olympics! Gotta love the global warming.
