When it comes to trolling at the Olympics, the Dutch are gold medal winners. First a pair of Dutch speedskating fans had a laugh at U.S. president Donald Trumps expense. Now theyre taking aim at American broadcaster Katie Couric after some incorrect assumptions she made about the country when it was introduced during the Opening Ceremony. As the Netherlands entered the PyeongChang Olympic Stadium during Fridays parade of nations, Couric shared a theory on why the Dutch are so good on the oval.

Oh, and mexicans are great swimmers because they have the Rio Grande conveniently located at the border.
I was never a big follower of perky Katie but this is nothing new for her. I recall her saying stuff during the 2000 Sydney summer games that led me to the obvious conclusion that perky was a moron.
Swim? I thought their wooden shoes allowed them to walk...
Katie thinks Holland in wintertime is like “Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates”.
So US "news" networks are saturated with fake news. Anybody with a functioning brain knows that at first glance.
That should be svim to work and grocery sture.
LOL! Good one!
I have a former business associate/partner & entrepreneur who lives in Dutchland and he constantly rails against the socialism he and his fellow Dutch citizens must endure.
At least they didn’t hire these guys....

Someone needs to tell the Dutch that PDJTs vision of American First is about things bigger than speed skating. Their little stunt says more about their own insecurities that it does about our President’s priorities.
At least she didn’t say “Look at that little Dutch monkey go”.
My favorite comment from the article, “We dry our hair with tiny windmills.”
They use tulips under each armpit for deodorant
I respectfully disagree. In this case, I am quite confident that Her Perkiness learned all she needed to know about Dutch speedskating one Sunday night in the 60’s, when Little Katie saw “Hans Brinker or The Silver Skates” on Walt Disney. I am absolutely sure that is where her comment came from. And that is journalism for you in the 21st century.
They skate over to the red light district to er... window shop.
She’s an idiot, but the comments are awesome and happy to have a laugh at her expense.
