The unlikely pairing was kicked out.

NBC won't air the Opening Ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympic games from PyeongChang until 8:00 p.m. ET tonight. However, the ceremony took place early this morning.

During the ceremony, Tongan flag-bearer Pita Nikolas Taufatofua stole the show. Despite the frigid temperatures, Taufatofua was shirtless and oiled-up for the duration of the ceremony.

While all of that was going on, another interesting storyline was taking shape. President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un were both kicked out of the Olympic ceremony.

Well, kind of. Two people impersonating Trump and Kim Jong Un caused quite a stir when the pair showed up to the Opening Ceremony together.

The two were quickly escorted out by security. According to a report from Reuters, the impersonators declined to give their real names.

The man impersonating Kim Jong Un revealed why the pair showed up together.

"We wanted to surprise everyone and bring world peace and then we’re being escorted out by security guards, which I think is really unfair."

He later asked, "Doesn’t everyone want peace?”

The Winter Olympics kicked off on Thursday with qualifying rounds in several events. Medal rounds start over the weekend.
