@carlquintanilla @NBCOlympics This is probably the most bizarre thing.. they should probably do summer Olympic synchronized swimming. They’d be great.

@global912 @carlquintanilla @darrenrovell @NBCOlympics Have you ever seen the videos of North Korean children performing with their guitars? truly creepy

@carlquintanilla @NBCOlympics Loosely translated, the song says: “We get to eat as long as our team stays at the Olympics. Go, team, Go!”

@carlquintanilla @NBCOlympics My Korean is a little rusty, but roughly translated, they're saying "we're cheering because if we don't our families will be shot"

@carlquintanilla @NBCOlympics Are the surrounded by any handlers to prevent any defections??

@rwstedman @carlquintanilla @NBCOlympics In addition to handlers to make sure the "cheerleaders" don't try to escape, all of their family members are likely being held at gunpoint in NK in the event an escape is attempted.

@carlquintanilla @NBCOlympics .Carl, with respect, you do realize this is like a performing bear (ie, the bear performs because he doesn't want the cattle prod)? It's horrible, terrifying, and sad. #olympics #NorthKorea

@carlquintanilla @NBCOlympics Nothing about the oppressive, tortuous, communist regime of North Korea should be celebrated, Carl. Those cheerleaders are only "entertaining" because their LIVES depend on it. It's very sad you don't see that.
