MSNBC is very bothered by President Trump’s extremely ‘graphic’ description of North Korea

You know the MSM has taken their anti-Trump hysteria beyond the point of no-return when its triggered by critiques of a brutal communist regime.

A panel on MSNBC couldn’t handle the “dark” language President Trump used when discussing North Korea under Kim Jong-Un’s rule, during a speech in South Korea on Tuesday.

The speech, which was well-received by the audience of South Korean lawmakers, extolled the growing economy and democratic government of the free Korean nation while condemning the horrific human rights abuses of its neighbor to the north.

But Washington Post‘s White House Bureau Chief, Philip Rucker, was not a fan of President Trump’s vivid description of the detestable conditions to which the Kim regime subjects upon its people.

“The other thing that stuck out to me in this speech was, he painted a picture of what life in North Korea is like under this regime,” Rucker said. “He described it as hell. He talked about a murderous regime. In very dark terms.”

Rucker then contrasted this with the President’s favorable portrayal of South Korea: “And then he painted a picture of South Korea, talking about South Korea’s economy that’s been booming for decades, about the political independence there.”

MSNBC’s Brian Williams agreed with Rucker, and the two then proceeded to question the President’s “dark” language.

WILLIAMS: Yeah, Phil, to one of your points, I was struck by how clinical and graphic this speech got at one point.

RUCKER: Very much so.

WILLIAMS: Very dark, wondering what, where, how that was injected into this speech? It’s not the kind of thing you wanted children in the room to hear.

RUCKER: It’s not, but we’ve seen this before in some of President Trump’s speeches, including his inaugural address when he talked about American carnage. He likes this sort of graphic imagery. He spoke this way on the campaign trail a lot. He describes terrorists as animals. I mean, he likes to come up with really sort of visceral terminology when he’s making his points.


President Trump’s speech certainly minced no words in assessing the misery of the North Korean people under Kim Jong-Un.

In one graphic passage, the President listed several specific atrocities the North Korean government has committed against its citizens.

“In the part of Korea that was a stronghold for Christianity before the war, Christians and other people of faith who are found praying or holding a religious book of any kind are now detained, tortured and, in many cases, even executed.

North Korean women are forced to abort babies that are considered ethnically inferior. And if these babies are born, the newborns are murdered. One woman’s baby born to a Chinese father was taken away in a bucket. The guard said it did not deserve to live because it was impure. So why would China feel an obligation to help North Korea?

The horror of life in North Korea is so complete that citizens pay bribes to government officials to have themselves exported aboard as slaves. They would rather be slaves than live in North Korea.

To attempt to flee is a crime punishable by death. One person who escaped remarked, ‘When I think about it now, I was not a human being. I was more like an animal. Only after leaving North Korea did I realize what life was supposed to be.’

And so, on this peninsula, we have watched the results of a tragic experiment in a laboratory of history. It is a tale of one people, but two Koreas. One Korea in which the people took control of their lives and their country and chose a future of freedom and justice, of civilization and incredible achievement, and another Korea in which leaders imprison their people under the banner of tyranny, fascism and oppression.”


Are the words graphic? Yes. But are they also true? Absolutely. How can we unite the free world against the totalitarian Kim regime without making known the full extent of their crimes against humanity?

Rucker and Williams would benefit from some self-reflection. If you criticize the President because his words might hurt the feelings of a murderous dictator, you might have a case of anti-Trump hysteria.
