Russian TV relishes ‘this clown’ Trump hurting relations with US allies — and coming up empty on North Korea

Published

on

Russia’s state television service this week mocked President Donald Trump for harming relationships with his own country’s allies while completely failing to come away with an agreement to denuclearize North Korea.

As Julia Davis reports in The Daily Beast, Russian state TV show host Dmitry Kiselyov this week listed all of the president’s foreign policy missteps and ridiculed him for painting himself as a top deal maker who could convince North Korea to abandon its arsenal of nuclear weapons.

“Trump miraculously managed to worsen relations on all fronts: with the European Union, China, Russia,” he said. “Total failure in Syria. The same with Turkey. Failure with Iran and failure with Venezuela. Nothing but failures at every turn… Trump, who calls himself the ‘master of the deal,’ left Vietnam empty-handed.”

Konstantin Asmolov, an expert from the Center for Korean Studies, similarly mocked Trump and said that many foreign leaders could be wary of cutting a deal with someone whom they believe will be voted out of power in less than two years.

“If Kim conceded anything [to Trump], then Trump’s successor might say that everything that this clown [Trump] has signed was not in our national interests and then Kim would end up in Gaddafi’s position,” he explained.

Russian state TV host Olga Skabeeva, meanwhile, said that she was encouraged that North Korea had refused to dismantle its nuclear program.

“We trust in Kim and hope he won’t abandon anything,” she said.

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
