Remember When Hillary Clinton Threatened Russia With War?
North Korea’s very own Rocket Man, Kim Jong Un, threatened the United States with nuclear annihilation again yesterday. Kim made the comment that he had a nuclear button at his desk ready to go.
President Trump, however, refused to let yet another one of Kim’s threats go unanswered. Trump responded in kind to Rocket Man with a tweet of his own. Liberals, naturally, freaked out.
“Trump’s going to start a nuclear war!” they cried in terror.
“We don’t want to die!” they shrieked.
There were various calls on Twitter to ban President Trump for violating their policy against inciting violence. Of course calls for Trump’s impeachment flew fast and furious as well.
I wonder how many liberals wetting themselves over Trump’s “violent rhetoric” remember that Hillary Clinton herself threatened Russia with war during the 2016 election?
It’s true. I have the proof right here:
President Trump’s “violent rhetoric” has hardly resulted in the nuclear holocaust that liberals feared. North Korea actually called the diplomatic hotline with South Korea mere hours after Trump’s tweet:
North Korea and South Korea established contact on a hotline that’s been dormant for almost two years Wednesday, a major diplomatic breakthrough following a year of escalating hostility and a move that could pave the way for future talks.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gave the order to open the line at 3:00 p.m local time (1:30 a.m. ET), according to an announcement on state media in the hours before the two phone calls to the South took place.According to South Korea’s Unification Ministry, the North Koreans made first contact at exactly the time ordered, and the sides were on the phone from 3:30 p.m. to 3:50 p.m. local time (South Korea is half an hour ahead of North Korea).During the initial 20-minute connection, the two nations “checked technical issues of the communication line,” according to a statement from South Korea’s Unification Ministry.The Unification Ministry said North Korea phoned for a second time several hours later on the Panmunjom hotline, suggesting the two sides wrap up business for the day.
Twitter said on Wednesday that President Trump did not violate the platform’s policies against violent threats when he raised the possibility of nuclear war with North Korea in a Tuesday night post.
Trump in a post directed at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un wrote, “I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”
A spokeswoman for Twitter told The Hill that the tweet did not violate its terms of service.
Many of the president’s critics, however, had complained that the social media company is failing to uphold its policies against making “specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people.”
Poor liberals. They just can’t win.
