MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is displaying her severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome to the entire world. I already knew she wasn’t well, especially after Trump’s tax return flop. But man. Her case is worse than I thought. She’s not taking the latest developments with North Korea well. Like, at all.
Check out this spin. Please excuse her progressive squawking.
“You might think another president in this circumstance, you can imagine a president asking himself or herself, ‘why has no other American president ever agreed to do this?’ Why has no sitting American president ever met with a leader from North Korea? Why has that never happened in all the decades North Korea existed as a nation? Should I take that to mean that this might be particularly risky or even an unwise move?” Maddow asked.
Wait wait wait. Everything we’ve tried before hasn’t worked, so Maddow wants us to keep doing something that hasn’t worked just because this seems risky? Wanna know what’s risky Rachel? ALLOWING NORTH KOREA TO CONTINUE TO BUILD ITS NUCLEAR PROGRAM AND SHOOT OFF MISSILES WHILE WE WATCH FROM ACROSS THE POND.
“I think a lot of people probably suspect tonight that those are not the kinds of questions that this president asked himself before agreeing to this meeting,” she said. “But this is the president we have and he said yes to North Korea.”
Retrieve your nightmares and imagine Hillary Clinton sitting in the Oval Office right now. Imagine that she somehow managed to get Kim Jong-un to cave. Please know that I realize the chance of that happening are minimal. She wouldn’t embrace the “peace through strength” philosophy. But let’s say she did. Can you imagine how joyous Maddow would be? She would be praising Hillary for her HERstoric achievement. She’d probably have a celebration panel and pop champagne on her show.
You know it’s true.
That creepy little freak (I’m currently referring to Kim Jong-un, not Maddow– I see where there could be some confusion there) only responds to a show of power and intimidation. That’s what Trump’s been doing. He hasn’t backed down.
Don’t be mistaken. Trump isn’t going over there to talk to an equal. He’s going over there to talk to a deranged lunatic who needs to get in line, or else.
