A woke ESPN reporter noted Monday that he was triggered by seeing the U.S. flag at the Olympics and that it left him “thinking back on the Capitol riots.”

During a stint of CBS This Morning, ESPN’s Bill Rhoden opined about how America needs to be humbled on the international scene. Still, he hit an upbeat note saying, “I love the opening ceremonies, march of countries.”

But then came the trigger: “Then I realized, you know, man, particularly after these last four years, I had it wrong. Nationalism is not good. We’ve seen the rise of White nationalism. Nationalism is not good.”

“And also, this whole idea — I keep thinking back on the Capitol riots, and I saw a lot of, you know, U.S. flag,” Rhoden gravely added.

But as he opened his comments, Rhoden insisted that the U.S. needs to be humbled, especially in light of the loss by the USA’s basketball team.

“I think we should be humbled. You know, I mean, this whole last year in this country — it’s about entitlement and privilege. Nobody epitomizes that more than basketball,” Rhoden said. “We’re just supposed to win [in basketball].”

“Across the board, we just need some humility,” he exclaimed.

Rhoden wrapped up his comments saying that the Olympics should have been canceled, but capitalism would not let that happen.

“Of course, they should have cancelled the Olympics,” he said, adding, “but our highest value now is money. Everything is being driven by money. So, they’re telling fans, athletes, roll the dice because we are going forward.”

He concluded saying, “We should not hold these events, but I know that horse has left the stable.”

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
