What CNN Analyst Said About Trump Bringing Home North Korean Hostages Proves It’s the End Times

The end is nigh…

Published

CNN

Ever since Donald Trump snagged a huge victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, there has been a war going on between our new commander-in-cheif and the mainstream media, particularly CNN.

The folks who work for the network have seemingly made it their life’s ambition to harass, belittle, and sling mud at Trump, his administration, and his family, hoping beyond hope that some sort of scandal is uncovered and his presidency comes to an abrupt end.

As a result of this treatment, Trump has slammed CNN as being “fake news” — a reputation they’ve earned by reporting only half the facts the majority of the time — destroying them regularly on Twitter, and even tossing a few of their reporters out during press conferences.

Given how tumultuous the relationship between these two has been, it’s utterly astounding to see the comments coming from CNN global analyst David Rohde who offered the President praise for getting our hostages back from North Korea.

Rohde pointed out how often analysts criticize the president, and that if they do that, they should recognize when the president does good things.

“Look, the president deserves credit. He used a lot of his tough rhetoric, and for whatever reason Kim Jong-Un is now talking to him. So I want to praise him for what we have so far on North Korea” Rohde said.

“I want to be fair, we all criticize Trump sometimes. You know, he has done well. It’s wonderful these three people have been released today.”

Perhaps part of the reason Rohde is so quick to praise Trump for getting these hostages back is because he has first hand experience of what being in that sort of situation is like.

In 2008, Rohde, his interpreter, and his driver were all kidnapped in Afghanistan while he was there writing a book about U.S. involvement in the country. They were on their way to an interview with a Taliban commander, but never arrived at their destination.

It’s believed they were held by the Jalaluddin Haqqani, who is a warlord and former Mujahideen fighter for seven months before they escaped. Rohde, along with his driver, managed to sneak past the guards who were asleep and climbed over a 10-foot-wall.

Rhode isn’t the only member of CNN giving props to Trump. Chris Cuomo also said this moment would be the highlight of the president’s administration, a compliment that likely wasn’t easy to make.

If only the civility from the media would last.

Democrat Rep. Watches Golf, Refuses to Take Impeachment Hearing Seriously [Video]

Bush league at its finest…

If you have ever heard of Congressman Cedric Richmond, raise your hand. Both of you? Great. Now, for the rest of us who have never heard his name, Richmond is a guy who doesn’t take impeachment seriously. Go figure, right? We all know most other Dems are supporting impeachment simply to support impeachment, but that doesn’t make it right. Cedric took things to a whole other level on Thursday. From Daily Wire: Democrat Rep. Cedric Richmond (LA) was accused of watching the President’s Cup golf tournament during the Democrats’ impeaching hearing on Thursday night in the House Judiciary Committee. Continued: The incident, noticed by GOP Rapid Response Director Steve Guest, appears to show Richmond not taking the Democrats’ impeachment hearing seriously as he was clearly focused on the golf tournament.

Rashida Tlaib makes Jeff Daniels’ character in Dumb & Dumber look like a Rhodes Scholar. The Michigan Democrat constantly finds herself on the wrong side of all issues, just like every member of her party. It’s sad, but they also do it to themselves. You have to forgive people like Rashida because she knows not what she does. She thinks she’s doing the right thing but was obviously taught wrong. What can you do? She is what she is. Check out the latest absolute NONSENSE from the Bernie Sanders-supporting Congresswoman. Here’s her tweet about “white supremacy”… But there’s a GIGANTIC problem.
