What happens when the media hears the truth from President Donald Trump during his U.N. speech concerning the fate of North Korea should they continue threatening America?
They act like snowflakes and melt, of course.
Those on the Right, however, have a different reaction.
Trump’s speech in front of the United Nations on Tuesday left no doubt that the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un aka #RocketMan is on borrowed time if he continues on his current path.
Trump said in no uncertain terms:
“No nation on earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles. The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary.”
MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell immediately accused Trump of threatening to commit a war crime against North Korea.
“At UN Trump threatened to commit a war crime: “totally destroy North Korea.”

In 2014, then President Obama warned that “the United States will not hesitate to use our military might” to protect American allies.
Not much difference between “totally destroy” vs. “use our military might,” Larry!
But then again, the difference may be that Trump actually means what he says.
Then there was NBC Chief White House Correspondent who reacted by tweeting:
“This goes beyond “fire and fury”
The “fire and fury” remark was in reference to a speech in July in which Trump indicated that “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen… he has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before,”

Others who were not as timid as those on the Left had only praise for Trump’s warning to Kim Jong Un:
Michelle Malkin tweeted:
“Libs who mocked GWBush as “Smirking Chimp” are now hyperventilating over Trump mocking Kim Jong Un as

But perhaps the best critique of the President’s speech came from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who took to Twitter to sing Trump’s praises when he said:
“In over 30 years in my experience with the UN, I never heard a bolder or more courageous speech.“
