CNN gets buried alive in backlash after glowing feature article praises Kim Jong Un’s sister

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.

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.

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