During his overblown and classless performance at the North Korean Summit in Singapore, Donald Trump's love of strong-armed dictators was shown in full force.
It was obvious to many of us how much he needed the young ruler (who murdered his own family members). Trump groveled before the North Korean dictator. And what's worse, he used the American flag and all that this country stands for to schmooze with the leader of a crumbling regime beset by poverty and oppression.
I wonder if he did all this just so he can visit North Korea and be welcomed by a fascist, authoritarian military parade put on as only a despot like Kim Jong-un can.
Returning with Trump on Air Force One, host Bret Baier of Fox News' Special Report asked about his effusive praise of NOKO's despot.
Baier said, “You were asked in the press conference a number of different times and in different ways about human rights and that you that called this relationship ‘really good’ and that he was ‘very talented person.'”
He continued, "You call people sometimes killers. He is a killer. He’s clearly executing people.”
Trump said praisingly, "He's a tough guy."
He continued, "When you take it over from your father. I don’t care who you are, what you are, how much of an advantage you have. If you can do that at 27 years old, I mean, that’s one in 10,000 that could do that,”
Trump waxes poetic about Kim because he sees the similarities in his relationship with his own father and his business.
I'll agree that it takes a special brain to ruthlessly kill your own family members and torture thousands more in prisons.
“So he’s a very smart guy. He’s a great negotiator, but I think we understand each other.”
Baier replied, “But he has still done some really bad things.”
Trump replied, “Yeah, but so have a lot of other people done some really bad things, I mean I could go through a lot of nations where a lot of bad things were done.”
That's his justification in defending and protecting Kim Jong-un? When other leaders murder their own population we don't rationalize it away.
This is a replay of his antics in Charlottesville when he defended the neo-Nazis after violence erupted during their hideous demonstrations.
“You had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists,” Trump said. “The press has treated them absolutely unfairly. ”You also had some very fine people on both sides,” he said.
If you were marching with the Nazis you aren't "a very fine person."
It's evident that Trump really needed the love, comfort, and support Kim Jong-un was able to provide him on the world stage.
