Obama urged Otto Warmbier's family to keep quiet during North Korean ordeal

Obama urged Otto Warmbier's family to keep quiet during North Korean ordeal

Otto Warmbier's parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier, shared heartwrenching new details of their son's return from a North Korean detention center where he was brutalized for 18 months.

What happened:

Otto Warmbier was captured in North Korea in January of 2016. He was a student at the University of Virginia at the time of his arrest and was accused of allegedly stealing a North Korean propaganda poster. He was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in North Korea at just 22 years old.

His parents called North Koreans "terrorists" in their sit-down with Fox News

On Tuesday's episode of "Fox and Friends," Warmbier's parents debunked the rumor that their son returned to their home in Ohio in a state of a coma. They said that when they received Otto from North Korea he had a blank stare, was "jerking violently" while "howling involuntarily" and making "inhuman sounds." His parents also revealed that the Obama administration urged them to keep quiet while their son suffered unspeakably at the hands of North Korea.

Fred called the regime "terrorists" and accused them of purposely torturing and injuring young Otto.

Pat's take: 

On today's episode of "Pat Gray Unleashed," Pat discussed the utter hypocrisy of the Obama administration for their complete failure and neglect to secure Warmbier's safe return. Pat praised Fox News for the interview as well as Warmbier's parents for handling the situation so well despite the tragic circumstances.

"There's no way I would have kept quiet," said Pat. "What a great situation for them to come out now and remind us all that North Korea is not the victim here. Their son is one of the many victims here. The North Korean people are victims here, but their son did absolutely nothing to deserve what they did to him."
