WTF MSM!? NBC says prisoner release also showed “the worst of Trump”

Conservative Review

Unreal …

Can’t give unqualified credit … This morning NBC’s Chuck Todd, Mark Murray, and Carrie Dann write that the overnight return of U.S. prisoners from North Korea “highlights the best and worst of Trump.” President Donald Trump just secured the release of U.S. citizens from a dictatorial hellhole seemingly without giving anything up. I’m failing to see anything to criticize here.

What was "the worst"? Trump gave praise to the North Korean dictator for releasing the prisoners and treating them well. Trump is playing a carrot and stick game here. He’s been harsh to Kim in the past, but gave a little praise to reward this positive action. Is that so wrong? To these three, it apparently is.

Related … The NBC piece above reminds me of something CNN’s Jim Acosta said yesterday via Twitter:

To that I say thank you, Jim. To Acosta and his left-wing friends in the Swamp, that list is a reason to detest Trump. When I look at that list, I see that every one of those was a campaign promise. This reminds me of January 2010 and Scott Brown’s race against Martha Coakley to replace Sen. Ted Kennedy. Scott Brown’s campaign theme was “I will be the 41st vote against Obamacare.” Martha Coakley’s campaign theme was “Scott Brown will be the 41st vote against Obamacare.” We know how that turned out. (Disclosure: I sold printed materials to the Scott Brown campaign in 2010 and 2012 and received advertising revenue from the campaign for a state-based blog I owned.)

The list of things Trump has done is exactly why people voted for this president – no matter how much that confuses people like Acosta.

Sad CNN … CNN’s overnight crew fretted that President Trump would get credit for the freed prisoners coming home from North Korea. NewsBusters has the video of how CNN handled the arrival of those prisoners at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. The hosts opined that perhaps this move was made to distract from CNN’s favorite programming, the Stormy Daniels one-night stand. Whether it be the Malaysian airliner crash or the Stormy Daniels saga, CNN has time and time again shown that it has a tough time walking and chewing gum at the same time.
