When it comes to dealing with the maniacal leadership of North Korea, Donald Trump has been forced into an offensive line of verbiage.
His counterpart in the despotic DPRK is none other than North Korean “supreme” leader Kim Jong Un, a dainty dictator with a penchant for over-the-top political propaganda that often portrays the United States as a pile of radioactive rubble. While this posturing would likely be allowed to slide, especially after being generated by such a hyperbolic twerp, Kim has worked long and hard to hypothetically back up his wild claims.
Over the summer, North Korea has launched at least two intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the U.S. mainland, detonated a possible hydrogen bomb deep underground, and sent a missile screaming over the heads of northern Japan’s terrified citizens, all while dialing up his incessantly violent vitriol.
Truly, U.S. President Donald Trump has had no choice but to lash out verbally at the Kim regime, and his tone during today’s appearance at the United Nations was decisively tough.
This, of course, drew the ire of liberal journalists everywhere, including over at ABC where one reporter made an asinine claim.
“ABC’s Martha Raddatz said during the network’s live coverage of the speech that Trump made a ‘very big threat’ with dire consequences.
“‘People do understand that there is a military option, the United States could destroy North Korea, but not without a great loss of life in South Korea and possibly to U.S. forces as well,’ she said.
“Host George Stephanopoulos expanded on the conditions under which the United States would act in such a way.
“‘If you read the president’s words, he said the conditions for totally destroying North Korea would be if forced to defend ourselves and our allies,’ he said.
“‘You can read that possibly to even open up a justification for preventative war against North Korea,’ he put to ABC News chief foreign correspondent Terry Moran.
“‘That is a potential justification, but the words “totally destroying” a nation of 25 million people, that borders on the threat of committing a war crime,’ Moran responded.”
It is truly a sad day when a violent and maniacal dictator who is literally launching missiles capable of reaching the United States, possibly with a thermonuclear warhead attached, gets less admonishment from the mainstream media than the U.S. President who is attempting to keep his nation safe.
This is yet another example of the liberal sickness that exists within the folds of society. The pure and unadulterated hatred that the left has for President Trump is disturbing on levels that many Americans never believed that they would actually see.
ABC taking Kim Jong Un’s side against Donald Trump is not only unethical and unnerving, but completely unacceptable.
