MSNBC’s Katy Tur Questions President Trump’s Use of ‘Rocket Man’ During U.N. Speech

I bet you didn’t notice this: There was a reason President Donald Trump referred to North Korea dictator Kim Jong-un as “Rocket Man” during his U.N. speech.

President Trump didn’t say the little tyrant’s name. Instead, he replaced it with a label, thus reducing this world leader to a small status. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. Trump didn’t even recognize North Korea’s supreme leader as a major figure. That speaks volumes on the global scale.

China probably will walk away from helping North Korea to save face if anything goes down. Think about it: If China’s government tried to protect a man who was less than a leader, it would be guilt by association. What gets me about the entire situation is how the media appears to be afraid of dictators, rather than back up President Trump who is standing up to them.

This is how America lost a lot of stature in the world. Our media and our liberal politicians worry how people see us instead of leading and creating paths of success. MSNBC Katy Tur, who has had many disagreements with President Trump, looked pitiful during a recent segment where she seemed disturbed that Trump used “Rocket Man” as a pejorative for Jong-un.

Here’s what Tur said: “Is it a good idea to personally name-call, call somebody, make fun of them with a nickname, ‘Rocket Man,’ – somebody who is as unstable as [Kim’s] believed to be?”

Why is she so worried about what a tinpot dictator like Kim “Rocket Man” Jong-un thinks?

No wonder nobody serious watches MSNBC. Panelists ask questions they all know the answer to, and there is no diversity of opinion. Talk about bad television.
