Jerry Bowyer: Media Hypocrisy on North Korea


This is Jerry Bowyer of Townhall Finance for Townhall.com.

The hypocrisy on the left was on full display during the Trump-Kim summit. Many on the left outright attacked Trump for trying diplomacy and giving Kim “legitimacy.” On MSNBC, guests said—on a number of occasions—that this meeting showed how much Trump loves his “fellow” dictators.

This is clearly absurd, but even more so given the absence of that rhetoric in 1994, when President Carter—during the Clinton administration—persuaded Kim Jong-il to agree to stop making nukes. We all know how that worked out.

But now it’s Trump  and the media can’t stop throwing cold water on it.

If anyone other than Trump was up there shaking Kim’s hand, elite media would be fawning.
