If he was a better skier, he could have skied for his own country. His song writing ability is on the same level.

I would buy a T-shirt like that.  It would go well with my Tux T from the 70's.  If I ever get invited to a quinceanera , I would so wear it.  People would say "Look at that cool dude in the mariachi t-shirt.  He's like doing his own cool thing."  I'd show up that Roy Moore who seems to cash every one of them.

And if they asked me to join a mariachi band, I could play the air guitar or the air giant guitar.

I'm off to write a outline for my next movie "Quinceanera  Crashers"  One of the crashers will wear such a T-shirt.  The tie-in will be worth millions.  I wonder if I could name one of the crasher Rory Moore.  The extra R will keep me from getting audited by the IRS.

I am not okay with this.  No one should tolerate this type of behavior.  The media should be ashamed for reporting on this story.  It is not acceptable to pick on retards.

Some Mexicans I assume are good people but this guy is probably a rapist, murderer or drug lord.

Hubertus von Hohenlohe is a fabulous name. and as a German in his late 50s, he should know a thing or two about walls that are bad ideas.

He's clearly not native Mexican, because he isn't currently living in the United States.

And (yet) there is this very barbarian thing of putting up a wall.

Putting up a wall is not a "barbarian thing", walls are to keep barbarians out.

If being born in a country doesn't qualify you to represent that country, then please tell us what your criteria are?

Yeah, good on him. He sounds like a guy who's been promoting his adopted country for a while now and really cares.

How is that worth my admiration? The guy is probably still a frickin boob.

You realize you're defending a prince, who was born into power by dictate from great sky person, right?

I encourage him to take a stroll across the border into NK and see what happens. It's not a great comparison, but there are lots of reasons to have walls.

And while people get 5 minutes of attention this slides off the presidents back and it's business as usual.  So what did they accomplish?

A German prince once dubbed the "world's most interesting man" is taking aim at the world's most powerful man with a musical protest to coincide with the start of the Winter Olympics.

Wait, I thought this was about Trump, not Putin?

Perhaps he should take a trip a few miles north of the Olympic venue and see what walls are good for.

Tell us about all the power wielded by this prince. It must be immense if his father moved to Mexico to work for Volkswagen.

The answer you're looking for is "nothing". It accomplished nothing.

The same criteria the Olympics uses. Being born in a country isn't one of them.

This is a rich dude that didn't have the skill level to be on the team from his own country so he represented one where he could by the rules in place. He could just as well have picked any of 50 or more other countries to represent by following the rules there to become a citizen. The point still stands. No skills in skiing. His lack of any songs on any relevant charts also makes the point valid.

You think a stroll into NK would be easy without a wall?

Not every section has a wall, but every section has snipers.

Hint: it's the snipers that keep people from crossing.

That was my point. If he wants to grandstand about how nations should have open borders, the north border over there is a much better way to show how devoted he is to the cause compared to releasing a crappy song.

You are clearly brain damaged. He is in the Olympics so the Olympics recognize the criteria established by the NOC of his country for citizenship. In almost all cases NOC's consider being born in a country as a valid qualification to compete. For example U.S. citizenship is automatically granted to any person born within and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. Therefore anyone born in the USA can represent the US unless they renounce their citizenship.

Since you did not answer my question as to what you think the qualifications should be, it's clear you are upset by his message and have no real reason to dispute the fact that Mexico is his country.
