President Donald Trump gave a speech to the United Nations on Tuesday and, among other issues, he spoke of the nuclear missile threats posed by Kim Jung Un of North Korea. In addition to the recent testing of ICBMs capable of reaching far within the shores of the United States, along with efforts currently in progress to arm these ICBMs with nuclear warheads, the leader of North Korea has stated that, “Now is the time to annihilate the U.S. imperialist aggressors.” He followed that with, “We will use nuclear weapons to ‘sink’ Japan and reduce the USA to ‘ashes and darkness.’ ”
In his speech, Mr. Trump said, “The United States has great strength and patience. But if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”
For this, President Trump was been ripped and vilified by multiple members of the liberal media who lost their minds — MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, ABC’s Terry Moran, Joy Behar and George Stephanopoulos — and even accused the president of “advocating for war crimes.” Please note, defending one’s country or its allies would not be a “war crime.”
Our president previously said, “Our first priority is to protect the American people and our allies. North Korea is erratic enough and the country’s leader is irresponsible enough that we don’t want them getting close. We could, obviously, destroy North Korea with our arsenals.”
The president made these remarks to Charlie Rose, co-host for CBS “This Morning” on April 26, 2016. That president was Barack Obama.
Double standards within the liberal media are alive and well.
