North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un has shown more sympathy towards President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump than the media and Democrats have since they contracted COVID-19.
On Saturday, Kim reportedly extended his "warm greetings" to the president and First Lady.
“In the message he said he heard of the sudden news that the president and the first lady of the U.S. have been tested positive for corona virus,” the Korean Central News Agency reported.
“He offered his sympathy to the president and the first lady,” the report added. “He sincerely hoped that they would recover as soon as possible. He hoped they will surely overcome it. He sent warm greetings to them.”
The comments from the North Korean dictator were much more pleasant and kind than those from many Democrats and media figures.
On Friday, the LA Times released a bizarre news report where they justified President Trump catching the Coronavirus by comparing his situation to when former President Ronald Reagan almost got assassinated.
Reagan “hadn’t spent months downplaying assassins,” the LA Times wrote.
“When President Ronald Reagan was shot and nearly killed by a would-be assassin, the country rallied around him,” said Del Quentin Wilber. “But he also hadn’t spent eight months downplaying the threat of deranged gunmen.”
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
The Los Angeles Times writer highlighted Reagan being shot and then claimed that it was “very much in doubt” whether Trump would garner the type of sympathy that Reagan did “not only because of the events leading up to his illness, but also the sharp differences between the personalities of the two men, which can be seen by their immediate reactions to their health crises.”
The report attacked Trump’s credibility, claiming that it has been “nearly four years of repeated falsehoods and disinformation.”
There was widespread backlash to the report online with many calling out the classlessness of the piece, while others noted that it was not even listed as an op-ed, but was published as a news story.
On Friday morning, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi responded to the news as well. The Speaker started out by saying how "sad" it was but then quickly pivoted to scolding the President.
“This is tragic, it’s very sad, but it also is something that, again, going into crowds, unmasked, and all the rest, was sort of a brazen invitation for this to happen,” Pelosi said during an interview with MSNBC. “Sad that it did, but nonetheless, hopeful that it will be a transition to a saner approach to what this virus is all about.”
“Maybe now that people who see the president of the United States, with all the protection he has and the first lady still having this exposure it might be, as you say, a learning experience,” she said earlier in the interview. “More than learning, it has to be something that is acted upon.”
