North Korea’s state-controlled media has praised the weekend meeting between dictator Kim Jong-un and President Donald Trump as a “historic” event.
But North Korea’s propaganda outlets are not the only ones offering effusive praise for the meeting. Many of Trump’s conservative allies in the media have hailed the meeting as well.
Comedy Central’s The Daily Show on Monday tweeted out a video in which they mashed up clips from Fox News and Fox Business with clips from North Korea.
“This is something that many analysts and pundits thought was totally impossible,” Fox News pundit Jeanine Pirro says in the video, followed by a North Korean broadcaster using eerily similar language.

Dr. Trump’s medicine show: Why is the president pushing an unproven drug? Follow the money
The "Trump is all about Trump" maxim goes a long way to explaining his obsessive beer-funneling of a malaria drug called hydroxychloroquine down the gullets of COVID-19 victims.
New York firefighter gets emotional talking about EMTs who feel guilty they’re too sick to work
The New York Fire Department is struggling to make its way through the coronavirus crisis. Currently, 493 members of the NYFD have tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 3,000 are out sick.
Anthony Almojera, an EMS Lieutenant-paramedic for the FDNY told CNN Tuesday that he doesn't know how they're managing the constant influx of calls for help from New Yorkers.
"It's truly a testament to the EMS workers that we have here, the EMTs and medics," he told host Jim Sciutto. "It's pretty amazing to see how they're going out in spite of seeing all their co-workers get sick. It's frightening for a lot of us. We don't want to bring it home. We don't want to get sick with it but, you know, this is our job, we treat the sick and injured. We still have all of our regular 9-1-1 calls. It's truly a testament to the EMTs."
‘Can we get a refund?’ Trump flack Stephanie Grisham faces a landslide of mockery after her abrupt dismissal
White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is reportedly being relieved of her duties after having gone a full ten months on the job without holding a single press briefing.
Given that Grisham hauled in a salary of $183,000 despite never actually appearing before reporters to answer questions, some Americans are asking if we can get a "refund" for her purported services.
Others, meanwhile, are simply happy to see her leave despite having rarely, if ever, seen her talk in public.
