Isn’t it funny how MSNBC and CNN are parading all these former Obama hacks around and pretending they are legitimate foreign policy “analysts”?
MSNBC even had the audacity to bring Ben Rhodes out to talk about the North Korea meeting.
Ben ‘Iran Deal’ Rhodes.
You’ll have a hard time finding a single person on this earth who is less credible than Ben Rhodes on foreign policy at this point.
And yet, there he was criticizing Trump for not taking enough notes in the meeting or something. Such a hack.
Speaking of the Iran Deal, George Stephanopoulos asked Trump if he still thinks the Iran Deal was a bad move now that he’s negotiated his own deal.
Trump was ready with the perfect answer.
From The Daily Wire:
Stephanopoulos asks Trump whether, now that he’s had experience negotiating for disarmament with a nuclear power, if he still believes that Obama’s deal with Iran was misguided.
Oh, he does.
G: You’ve set the bar for nuclear agreements by criticizing the Iran nuclear deal, said it’s the worst deal ever made.
T: Terrible deal.
G: Does that mean that any deal with North Korea has to be tougher than the Iran deal?
T: I don’t think a deal could be softer. First of all, we’re not paying $150 billion, OK, we’re paying nothing from that standpoint other than, you will see what happens.
He’s right. Trump’s critics have no leg to stand on here. Every American should be rooting for this plan to succeed.
There have been a lot of liberals out there running with this silly narrative that conservatives would be hammering Obama if Obama had held a summit like this.
First of all, Obama never would have been able to put this meeting together so that’s a terrible argument.
Second of all, the difference between Trump and Obama is that Obama would legitimately be impressed by Kim Jong and would probably give him a ridiculous number of concessions. Trump is clearly playing a game with Kim Jong Un and hasn’t given up anything.
There’s a big difference. Conservatives would not be angry if Obama achieved peace in North Korea. There’s just no way he ever could have.
He had his shot. He blew it. Now it’s Trump’s turn.
