Ever since Donald Trump has stood firm against the childish displays of power by North Korea, the left has been attacking him, accusing him of handling the situation poorly.
What they’ve been ignoring, however, is something that Barack Obama said in 2016 that’s almost identical. It turns out that North Korea has been up to nuclear shenanigans since Bill Clinton’s disastrous energy deal in 1994.
Liberals love blaming Donald Trump and the Republican party for everything, however, which is why they haven’t spoken a word of Obama’s statement. They’ve completely ignored the brash remarks that Obama made to Kim Jong Un, back before the North Korean nuclear threat was even a fifth of what it is now.
David Blair of The Telegraph reported the following from April 2016, when Barrack Hussein Obama was still in office:
President Barack Obama delivered a stern warning to North Korea on Tuesday, reminding its “erratic” and “irresponsible” leader that America’s nuclear arsenal could “destroy” his country.
Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator, claimed to have tested a submarine-launched missile last Saturday. A photograph showed the weapon flying out of the sea, although there was no independent confirmation that it had been fired from a submarine, as opposed to a sub-surface platform.
But North Korea already has between six and eight nuclear warheads that could be mounted on a missile. If the regime does perfect a submarine-launched system then it would, in theory, be able to launch a nuclear attack on the American mainland. This would require a submarine being able to sail within missile range of the US.
Mr Obama gave warning of the possible consequences. “We could, obviously, destroy North Korea with our arsenals,” he told CBS News. “But aside from the humanitarian costs of that, they are right next door to our vital ally, [South] Korea.”
Funny enough, it seems that the liberals missed that one. Obama initiates years of disastrous foreign policies costing us trillions of dollars, and yet Trump makes a few remarks that get media coverage for weeks? How dumb does the media think you are?
Liberals erupted in outrage on Twitter after Trump took a firm stance against North Korea’s antics, exposing their true colors. The left is nothing more than a bundle of sniveling babies, eager to jump at any chance to feign the victim.
Trump may have fabricated a faux nuclear standoff with North Korea to distract attention from what Mueller is finding out about his crimes.

Hillary Clinton and her administration have also had their verminous nature exposed, after they said that Trump’s take on North Korea was “too weak,” during the election.

Angela Merkel, the leader of Germany who’s absolutely destroyed her country with open borders policies, had the audacity to virtue signal against Trump, implying that violence shouldn’t be used to stop a tyrannical nuclear threat.

Thankfully, conservatives responded in jest. At this point, many have realized we shouldn’t even take liberals serious anymore—it’s like we’re living out a skit form Monty Python or something, with the level of insanity that these liberals are pushing.

Elon Musk, billionaire Entrepreneur and tech investor, even had something to say, adding that the threat of Artificial Intelligence is far worse than that mini-monster Kim Jong Un.
If you're not concerned about AI safety, you should be. Vastly more risk than North Korea. pic.twitter.com/2z0tiid0lc

Some, such as Hannity, pointed out that there will be no negotiating with North Korea. American leaders have tried that for the past 25 years, and have failed miserably—just ask Obama, the Bush family, and Clinton.

This article highlights the hypocrisy of liberals—they’re quick to dish out hate, but they can’t take it in the slightest. They praise Obama when he attacks North Korea, but condemn Donald Trump when he does the exact same thing when the threat is even larger.
