When do you know Trump derangement syndrome is at its peak? When liberals are gushing over murderous dictators and their kin just to “stick it” to the president.
CNN took heat for a feature story on Saturday that said Kim Jong Un’s sister is “stealing the show” at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.
“If ‘diplomatic dance’ were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un’s younger sister would be favored to win gold,” the article began.
It then described the North Korean dictator’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, as having “struck a chord with the public,” and even termed her “North Korea’s Ivanka Trump.”
CNN’s favorable description of Kim, who shares both parents with North Korea’s leader and is one of his closest confidants, was in contrast to the remarks by South Koreans the network interviewed.
Kate Yoo, 21, said she doesn’t think it’s “the best thing to have her here, although maybe part of having one of the Kim dynasty over is like a safeguard, then they won’t attack.”
The CNN article came shortly after many liberals cheered Kim Yo Jong for giving Vice President Mike Pence a “deadly side eye” during the Olympic games.
Human Rights Watch notes that North Korea is responsible for a multitude of human rights abuses, including “murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape, forced abortion, and other sexual violence,” as well as suppressing freedom of expression and access to information.
The CNN article unleashed a storm of condemnation.
“Howdy, we’re CNN, and we normalize dictatorships! Got a dictator? We’ll normalize ’em or yer money back!”

It seems odd how CNN always reports on murderous dictators and their family members in a positive light but are own President and his family are bashed by CNN 100% of the time. Agenda?

A guy escaped North Korea on crutches, but the real hero is the sister of a murderous tyrant that gave Pence some serious side-eye.

CNN has officially become North Korean propaganda.
Kim Jong Un's sister is a killer. Most analysts say she's even crazier than Little Rocket Man. https://t.co/ScMZ23uO9y

This CNN International headline is poorly written:
Murderous dictator Kim Jong Un, whose regime starves, tortures and brutalizes millions, sends his sister to the Olympics to normalize their image, disarm and decieve the world. https://t.co/34cz9k2rZx

I didn’t realize this needs to be said, but before you decide to stan Kim Jong Un’s sister, please remember to NOT do that.
Her family literally runs gulags. https://t.co/DZDDD4NnaA

Does this puff piece mean she’s gotten over her dictator brother’s murder of her other brother? https://t.co/JhjCimwQ9O

The Olympic coverage has truly been a shameful display and the gold medal for worst news stories goes to CNN.
