Perhaps NBC News and MSNBC have realized that they’ve lost all credibility with the American people – a credibility that probably isn’t coming back anytime soon. So they’ve taken a drastic step towards salvaging their brand – instead of trying to introduce some actual, journalistic integrity into their programming, they’re just going to start catering to a different audience. The North Korean military brass, for instance!
In a segment that played on NBC’s Today Show as well as their MSNBC counterpart, correspondent Keir Simmons went to North Korea to talk to some of the (state-approved) officials in the military. One of them said – to great approval from the program’s Mika Brzezinski – that he thought Trump was off his rocker.
“He quite plainly said he believes President Trump is mentally ill,” Simmons said of a North Korean colonel he spoke to. “And he was unequivocal in saying that he believes that North Korea could win a war with America.”
Now we would naturally assume that North Korean military officials would get the majority of their talking points and beliefs from the tightly-guarded flow of information coming out of the Kim Jong Un regime, right? But apparently, thanks to the biased U.S. media coverage of the past year, the North Koreans in the upper echelon of the military have a newfound favorite source of anti-American propaganda!
“Be it no doubt that the senior officials here pay attention to what is being said in the U.S.,” Simmons reported. “One telling me that he watches ‘Morning Joe’ every day, especially for the segments about North Korea.”
Once they came back to the studio, Mika – perhaps flattered by the idea that she was broadcasting live to America’s greatest enemies – said, “Joe, a couple of things that come to mind here. First of all, they’re saying what a lot of people are thinking – that the president is mentally ill. It’s considered inappropriate to say…”
That’s one for you, Kim Jong Un, baby!
IS that what a lot of people are thinking, Mika? That President Trump is “mentally ill?” Or is that just what you and your elitist liberal friends in New York City think? The ones who have never spent more than ten minutes in the company of a real conservative – and no, Joe Scarborough certainly does not count. The ones who thought this country was just swell under the inept leadership of Barack Obama because, oh, he was so well spoken and so cool and so black. Ugh, and this TRUMP…how…how…how absolutely AWFUL!
When you find yourself on the same page as North Korean propaganda – nay, when you realize that you ARE North Korean propaganda – you should probably reexamine your entire life, to say nothing of your television program.
