In summer us Dutch swim to work and grocery store via the canals. You’ll hear that next summer Olympics.

Why are they so good? you may be asking yourselves. Because skating is an important mode of transportation in a city like Amsterdam which sits at sea level.”
“As you all know, it has lots of canals that can freeze in the winters. So, for as long as those canals have existed, the Dutch have skated on them to get from place to place, to race each other, and also to have fun.
So true; they are right to despise us in terms of education.
What a stupid b!tch...
Their olympic ice fishing team is pretty darn good too.......
Fun beating her up, but during the Little Ice Age, that was about the only way to get around for most of the year...so there is some history there, similar to Scandinavians and skiing, and Kenyans and running.
Fair, unfair, never mattered to Katie Couric when she was heaping her own politically motivated scorn on anyone else, so have at it. She’s sown plenty, time to reap.
What a racket it must have been for all those Dutch running in their wooden shoes to beat up on Katie. CLOP CLOP CLOPPITY CLOP
Stereotypes... bah! My “Dutch” ancestors came from some Frisian islands, and there wasn’t much skating on the North Sea. Now if the Olympics ever had an event that showcased being dour and humorless...
Apparently, though, they do like to skate.
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.
So US "news" networks are saturated with fake news. Anybody with a functioning brain knows that at first glance.
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.
My favorite comment from the article, “We dry our hair with tiny windmills.”
She’s an idiot, but the comments are awesome and happy to have a laugh at her expense.
