In a desperate play for relevance, an American rag just sided with Kim over Trump in the latest build up of internation tensions.
They worked in all the predictable digs, starting with the headline, where they quoted Kim by saying ‘Senile Donald Trump…’
North Korea is effectively the world’s largest prison camp, and Newsweek is voluntarily pushing their propaganda?
Such dazzling journalistic ‘integrity’. Right up there with ‘The Weekly World News’. No wonder we had almost forgotten they exist.
Might they have any other ‘pearls of wisdom’ to share? Of course! You didn’t think they would stop there, would you?
What other gems of propaganda did Kim’s Pravda-by-Proxy regurgitate?
There were several —
Kim accused Trump of spouting nonsense and said “sound dialogue” is not possible with a person “bereft of reason, and only absolute force can work on him,” which drew a fair bit of attention in the press. –Newsweek
We’ll come back to that in a moment.
But Kim also slammed Trump spending his time “on the golf links,” which showed the president did not “grasp the ongoing grave situation.” Kim also added Trump was “extremely getting on the nerves” of North Korean soldiers with comments that showed his “senility.” –Newsweek
So the three criticisms are Trump’s mental faculties, his sabre-rattling, and his golf.
For good measure, they added a video clip riffing off the title of the Cold-War cult classic ‘Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb’.
You get the picture — Trump is at least as dangerous and unstable as Little Kim, the same guy who shelled an island in habited with S. Korean fishing villages.
This should be fun.
Flashback: has anyone in the Left’s weaponized media reported THIS quote?
“We could, obviously, destroy North Korea with our arsenals,” he told CBS News. “But aside from the humanitarian costs of that, they are right next door to our vital ally, [South] Korea.” —Telegraph
Oh No! Look at that! What kind of a crazy sonofabitch was trying to start WWIII?
That quote was uttered by no less than The President of The United States of America. (What a bastard that Trump is, right?)
Guess again. That quote was from April of 2016. Who was President way back then? Does anyone remember? Osama… no, Obama… something or other? Maybe #44 was similarly ‘bereft of reason’.
How about ‘playing too much golf’? Maybe Newsweek didn’t read the Eight Reasons Trump Shouldn’t apologize for playing golf.
#2 was relevant: “Golf can connect world leaders in an informal setting”
Where was the outrage for Obama’s 333 rounds of golf while in office? *crickets chirping*
Unlike the way a typical businessman would use golf, the links were hardly an opportunity to conduct business for #44. Don’t take our word for it.
If there’s any question that Obama prefers to leave the presidency behind when on the course, consider this: Obama has included another elected official in a game only nine times since taking office, and on five of those occasions that official was Joe Biden. Meanwhile, he has played 33 rounds with campaign photographer David Katz, 26 with his friend Dr. Eric Whitaker from Chicago, and nine with Walter Nicholson, a man who’s chief qualification is being the trip director’s brother. —Time
As for mental faculties, is this anything new?
The Left only ever has three cards to play. Anyone on the Right is either Dumb, Old, or Evil.
They couldn’t make Romney out to be dumb, so they went ‘evil’ with the dog on the roof, the firing of Big Bird, and binders full of women.
Dubya was — depending on the day — either an evil genius who was running the world, or he was dumb as a box of rocks. But now that he’s harmlessly out of politics, the Left has forgotten all of their hate, and (when politically expedient) pretends to ‘love‘ him.
The Weaponized media is terrified.
All of the usual weapons that will frighten career politicians on the Right, and bring them to heel — whisper campaigns, negative press, character assassination — isn’t working on Trump.
He simply has no f—s to give about whatever they might throw at him.
He’s already got influence and wealth. They can’t threaten to take either of those away from him… because they never gave it to him in the first place.
And how desperate is the media now that there’s a Politician that can’t be bullied by them?
While the rest of the world sees Un as a modern-day-Nero, fit only to be mocked.
The Left-wing Media are willing to side with a North Korean Despot to get their licks in on a President the American Public dared to elect despite ALL their best efforts.
To quote the guy they hate the most… Sad!
