Media Reaction To Trump-Kim meeting

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 14, 2018

         YOU’VE HEARD THE JOKE ABOUT A PRESIDENT WHO WALKS ON WATER AND THE NEXT DAY THE NEWSPAPERS AND TV ANCHORS REPORT THE PRESIDENT CAN’T SWIM.

         I THOUGHT OF THAT WHEN I READ THE MEDIA REACTIONS TO THE MEETING BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND NORTH KOREAN LEADER KIM JONG-UN. MOST OF THE MEDIA SAID THE PRESIDENT DIDN’T BRING UP HUMAN RIGHTS.

         FUNNY, THE MEDIA WERE FINE WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA DIDN’T MENTION HUMAN RIGHTS TO THE CASTRO BROTHERS WHEN HE DECIDED TO RE-ESTABLISH RELATIONS WITH COMMUNIST CUBA. NEITHER DID THEY SEEM CONCERNED ABOUT IRAN’S HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS AND ELECTION FRAUD WHEN HE AND JOHN KERRY GAVE AWAY THE STORE AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN EXCHANGE FOR A PHONY NUCLEAR DEAL THAT WILL BENEFIT NO ONE, EXCEPT IRAN.

         NEW YORK TIMES COLUMNIST THOMAS FRIEDMAN, WHO IS WRONG ABOUT MOST THINGS, ACCUSES THE PRESIDENT OF TRYING TO MAKEOVER AMERICA INTO HIS OWN IMAGE. FRIEDMAN WAS FINE WITH BARACK OBAMA PLEDGED TO “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM AMERICA.”

         THERE IS SO MUCH HYPOCRISY OUT THERE IT HARDLY SEEMS WORTH MENTIONING. I’M CAL THOMAS.
