Donald Trump, Ivanka, and Tucker Carlson walk into N. Korea...no, its not the first line of a joke. Or maybe it is. But this really happened over last weekend. Tucker Carlson, whom I don't think has been senate-confirmed to represent the US abroad, is now participating in the foreign affairs of the United States with a murderous dictator. And Kim Jong Un.

Is anybody paying attention? Hellooooooo?

Not the Secretary of Defense, or Secretary of State, or National Security Adviser Bolton was exiled to Mongolia. But Tucker and Ivanka were on hand to witness Tinyhands' skip across the DMZ. Ivanka described the experience as "surreal." I can relate. Tucker excused KJU's killer streak by rationalizing that "you've got to be honest about what it means to lead a country, it means killing people."

Ladies and gentlemen we present America's new official spokesperson to N. Korea. Tucker Carlson. The new US policy toward dictators: "Go ahead, kill whoever you want!" It's "silly" to get upset about it! All the great leaders do it. Look at Trump! He's making good time at the US border. MBS slaughters journalists working in America and we do nothing, so go ahead! Putin has 'em poisoned and Tinyhands yucks it up at the G20. "Don't mess with our elections" he teasingly scolds, wagging his pudgy baby finger at the lethal KGB agent-cum-dictator.

Just like the mafia, Trump brought his family to meet the other mob boss. Not any US government officials, but his daughter, her hubby, and the Fox News sycophant. Every Don has a lackey in tow. Reality TV at its finest the Apprentice Season Finale. Kim got the full-on ring kiss from the self-appointed American Royal Family.

Why?

Explain to me how anyone benefits from normalizing Kim Jong Crazy? This propaganda tour only helps this killer gain power. It's a great "honor" to meet the man who tortured Otto Warmbier to death on his soil? Inviting him to the White House and complimenting his voice? What the actual f*ck? This guy has threatened the US with a nuclear strike how many times? Is it just because he writes Trump love letters?

What does it take, Truthseekers? Is there no way to restrain this madman before he permanently destroys the US position in the world? Or is everybody looking the other way because the stock market hit another record high?

Is that why nothing is being done about the horrific conditions at migrant facilities at the border? In case you missed it, Alexandria Ocasia-Cortez led a Congressional delegation on a tour of two migrant facilities in El Paso and Clint Texas and things didn't go as planned. She refused to take the "tour" border patrol agents had planned. The CBP agents were not pleased, and were hostile and menacing, demanding they surrender their cell phones. Some agents openly mocked the Congress members as others laughed.

Nevertheless AOC pushed into a cell where women were detained and began conversing in Spanish. The stories the women shared were tragic. CBP agents called them whores, woke them at all hours for no reason, and told them to drink from the toilet when they asked for water. Some had been detained for weeks-longer than the maximum stated policy. There were four showers for almost 800 migrants and they often wore the same filthy clothes for weeks. They were denied medical care and medicine. They cried and pleaded that she not share what they told her because they feared retaliation from the guards.

This is psychological and physical torture. We treat POWs better than this.

These CBP agents are on team Trump and they are ugly. Between detention center visits ProPublica broke a story about a secret 9,500-member CBP Agent Facebook page filled with vile comments about the upcoming Congressional visit, along with jokes about the deaths of migrants in their custody.

ProPublica reports:

One member encouraged Border Patrol agents to hurl a "burrito at these bitches." Another, apparently a patrol supervisor, wrote, "f*ck the hoes." "There should be no photo ops for these scum buckets," posted a third member.

So we're so much better with the world's largest prison population? Look we've been at war since 1953 with NK. Isn't it time to end that and the threats in that region of the world? But you are a partisan who thinks he's a "progressive" when in fact you're simply anti-Trump and just as happy with endless war (yes sanctions are economic war) and threats to nuke Korea. NK is the result of our policies, as is the migration from Central America and now Venezuela. I'll stick to the prerequisite of a true progressive as one who struggles for just peace and anti-war.

I would argue that NONE of our seated presidents have been right for negotiating a true peace with NK.

I do think you make an excellent spokes person for AOC who is more anti-Trump than humanitarian (hers is very selective).

Let's just say that at this juncture, Tucker Carlson is far more antiimperialist than anyone in the democrtaic party not named Tulsi Gabbard. click here

And certainly more so than a moralizing, establishment apologist like you.

Jimmy Dore did a great show on how Tucker Carlson almost certainly averted a war that could have led to the end of life on earth.

I don't put Tucker on a pedistal BUT he is NOT Sean Hannity.

I promptly add that anyone who can't get past the MSM insane propaganda on North Korea needs to seriously do more homework.
