Trump Took Tucker Carlson, Not John Bolton, To North Korea

President Donald Trump brought Fox News host Tucker Carlson to North Korea on Sunday instead of his own national security adviser, John Bolton.

"…you’ve got to be honest about what it means to lead a country. It means killing people.”

That right there is what Trump is hoping for – that more and more people will agree with Carlson that he needs to do some more killin’ to be a great leader.

Great, Bolton got stuffed in the trash can while Carlson gets the best seat in the house. I despise Bolton and Carlson but Bolton wants to start WWIII while Carlson is just a greedy scumbag, so I think this is hilarious.

This is a loser for Trump. On many levels. On the other hand, Bolton is a lot more dangerous to
America than Tucker Carlson

Well, Kim does kill off his family members so maybe Trump will learn a few tips while he’s there.

If Woody Allen remade Bananas as a mashup with Mike Judge and Idiocracy it still would pale in comparison to reality.

I would love to be the reporter tasked with doing a piece (and interview) with Carlson when he gets home.

“Over his head” doesn’t even begin to describe the situation he is in right now.

This is the Post FOX, Modern Dixiecrat Republican Party bottom line statement of Realpolitik. Not the earlier, Churchillian or Machiavellian formulation that sometimes you had to do evil shit for the greater good. There it is folks, the result of the reign of Rupert Murdoch and the political party he hand picked and nurtured for our country.

Communists revered trust fund babies, right? " Revered Gospodin Carlson, allow us to personally escort you to your new dacha in Khanty-Mansuk. The fishing is fantastic — even in winter!"

With luck, the North Koreans will kidnap this little shit and use him to practice brainwashing or charge him with spying. Wash, rinse, repeat. Yes, he’s great advising the POTUS that national greatness requires killing innocents.
We go further down the rabbit hole every day.

First question, what was the justification that The Dumpster gave to you when he asked if you’d like to attend. Or was it a “yes sir, another please”, moment.

Kim is killing his own citizens without any semblance of due process and for specious reasons. The antithesis of what America and, I might add, Christians stand for. JFC, what the hell is wrong with Carlson?

Perhaps Bolton is being punished for putting Trump in the position of having to back down on Iran. (Who knows what was really going on there.)

Trump did take Carlson’s advise that he gave on the tv over Bolton’s -only his National Security Advisor -so seems fair.

Way off topic: but you have to see this:

And the French released this fully aware of how humiliating this is for Ivanka.
