Just about a week and a half after the nation saw Ji Seong-Ho rise in the balcony after President Trump recounted his horrific story of torture and eventual heroic bid for freedom, U.S. media outlets are praising the sister of the brutal dictator of North Korea for her appearance at the Olympics.
In the article the outlet likens Kim Yo Jong as the North Korean answer to Ivanka Trump and praises her warm message in the Olympic guest book. It goes on to say she is one of her brother's most trusted advisors and functions as an informant for him. Yup, an "informant" for the guy who offs family members in his quest to consolidate and maintain power. Seems like an awesome job.
Is it just me, or does her message seem more ominous than heartwarming given North Korea sees unification under it's own dictatorial regime?
"I hope Pyongyang and Seoul get closer in our people's hearts and move forward the future of prosperous unification," she said in her guest book message, referring to the capitals of North and South Korea.
Not to be outdone by CNN, the Washington Post chimed in.
Guys, after coming out of the shadows following the death of her father this little bucket of joy has held two government jobs. She was Vice Director of the Worker's Party Propaganda and Agitation Department. This department's job is to ensure everyone appropriately idolizes Dear Leader. Now she is in the Organization and Guidance Department in charge of state security and the military. I would be absolutely shocked to learn she has ordered the deaths of various North Koreans (sarcasm) but by all means let's compare her to Ivanka Trump because you hate the President.
ABC decided to celebrate the North Korean cheerleading team. I think they are wearing masks of Kim Yo Jong, so you can take what you like from that.
I am sure these "cheerleaders" that exhibit military precision are totally there of their own free will after choosing this career. I bet none of them has ever been beaten for being off a beat or not kicking high enough, right?
Leave it Buzzfeed to bring a little sanity into the discussion. Yes, I said Buzzfeed. I can't find where this article was tweeted on the publications Twitter account, but is more accurate than any of the MSM outlets above. In case you need encouragement to click, here is a shot of the headline. Way to go Julia and David.
I've seen the urge to "resist" Trump make people say awful, hypocritical and inane things. I've seen Better Midler make jokes about the attack on Rand Paul. I've seen Stephen Colbert tweet awful and disgusting insults at women in Trump's administration. But after seeing a man riddled with bullets running across the DMZ, hearing from Otto Warmbier's parents and watching a man triumphantly hoist the crutches he hobbled to freedom on over his head, I don't know how any American media outlet can prop up the right hand woman of the monster responsible for it all.
