‘He’s Out With the People’: Fox & Friends Runs North Korean Propaganda, Calls Kim Jong Un ‘Quite the Romantic’

Fox & Friends took time on Thursday to show the “lighter side” of North Korean dictator Kim Jon-Un, airing photos from the regime’s state-run propaganda network of the brutal killer visiting a fish factory with his sweetie, because awwwww. Something’s changed since their coverage in February (below). But what it could be… This morning, Fox anchor Jillian Mele read the story, which had no discernible news value, beginning with the fluff-piece classic line “turns out Kim Jong Un is quite the romantic.” Referring to Kim as the “North Korean dictator” she explained that he took his wife on a tour of a fish pickling factory. “State media releasing the photos to showcase what the rogue regime considers its economic strength,” she said. “The softer side,” quipped Steve Doocy after the Mele tossed it back to the hosts. “Very romantic,” said Ainsley Earhardt. “A fish factory.” “Very romantic,”

Fox & Friends Tackles News North Korea May Not Be Denuclearizing: ‘Hmm’

On Fox and Friends on Tuesday, hosts Pete Hegseth and Steve Doocy tackled the news that U.S. intelligence has evidence that North Korea is building new intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States. Hegseth reported that “North Korea could be working to build new missiles despite its pledge to denuclearize.” “The Washington Post reports U.S. Spy agencies are seeing signs that the rogue regime is working on up to two missiles capable of hitting the United States,” he read. “This satellite photo reportedly shows production at a missile facility.” “Hmm,” said Hegseth after reading the report. “Not great.” The pledge Hegseth slightly mentions was the one between Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump at their summit. After that summit the President said that there was “no more nuclear threat” from North Korea. The Washington Post story has much more. Co-host Steve Doocy Continue reading "Fox & Friends Tackles News North Korea May Not Be Denuclearizing: ‘Hmm’"

Trump Says There’s ‘No Time Limit’ For North Korean Denuclearization: ‘There is No Rush’

President Trump is apparently saying his agreement with Kim Jong Un doesn’t include a deadline for the denuclearization of North Korea. Trump told reporters on Tuesday that the Korean Peninsula’s denuclearization was one of the topics that came up during his summit with Vladimir Putin.
“Discussions are ongoing and they’re going very, very well. We have no time limit. We have no speed limit…The sanctions are remaining. The hostages are back. There have been no tests. There have been no rockets going up for a period of nine months, and I think the relationships are very good, so we’ll see how that goes.”
Trump reaffirmed these comments on Twitter today as he defended himself from those criticizing his Putin press conference along with his attempt to walk back his controversial statements.

Trump Suggests Negative Media Coverage of The North Korea Summit is ‘Almost Treasonous’

In an exclusive interview set to air Saturday night on TBN, former Arkansas governor and 2016 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee sat down with President Donald Trump. In what will likely be a wide-ranging interview, part of the conversation was focused on Trump’s recent summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, which Trump insists was widely successful. However, CNN supervising producer Steve Brusk flagged this portion of their exchange. After telling Huckabee he and the North Korean dictator came to a “wonderful agreement,” Trump took the opportunity to blast “fake Continue reading "Trump Suggests Negative Media Coverage of The North Korea Summit is ‘Almost Treasonous’"

Poll: Republican Voters Have a More Favorable View of Kim Jong Un Than Nancy Pelosi

Voters who identify as Republicans hold North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in a slightly more favorable view than they do Democrat Congressman Nancy Pelosi, per a new poll. The survey, which was conducted by Ipsos on behalf of The Daily Beast, polled approximately 1,000 self-identifying Republican voters and found that — following Trump’s summit in Singapore with Kim — 19 percent of GOP voters had a favorable view of the DPRK leader, while 17 percent of the same group saw Pelosi favorably. However, Kim was deemed unfavorable by 75 percent of the group of Republicans, while Pelosi was deemed unfavorable by 72 percent of respondents. This data comes after Trump repeatedly praised Kim following their historic summit, as he told Fox News that the dictator is “the strong head [of his country]” and added, “He speaks, and his people sit up at attention. I want my people Continue reading "Poll: Republican Voters Have a More Favorable View of Kim Jong Un Than Nancy Pelosi"

Art of the Deal Co-Author Blasts Trump’s ‘Deranged’ Praise of Kim Jong Un: POTUS ‘Lacks a Soul’

On Saturday, MSNBC’s Joy Reid sat down with Art of the Deal co-author Tony Schwartz to talk about President Donald Trump‘s recent defense of brutal, human rights trampling North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Earlier this week, Trump was asked by Fox News’ Bret Baier about the “killer” despot and how he can continue to say nice things about him despite all the bad things he has done. Trump replied, saying this: “Yeah, but so have a lot of other people have done some really bad things.” Referencing that remark, Reid asked Schwartz about Trump’s praise of Kim Jong Un including going so far as to call Kim a “smart guy.” Schwartz replied, “Only a person with no conscience could say that…That is deranged.” Reid then asked Schwartz if, when working with him, he ever heard Trump express gentleness or empathy. Schwartz responded by saying Trump Continue reading "Art of the Deal Co-Author Blasts Trump’s ‘Deranged’ Praise of Kim Jong Un: POTUS ‘Lacks a Soul’"

President Donald Trump gave a surprise interview to Fox & Friends earlier today, and then eventually opened up to the rest of the White House press pool, which led to 51 minutes of sparring with the media and all sorts of unbelievable statements.
