White House press secretary Sarah Sanders put the media in their place Friday over their soft spot for North Korea.
Fox News Radio’s John Decker said that Kim Jong-un “starves his own people, murdered his own people, we can say he is responsible for the death of Otto Warmbier.”
“Why put him on the same stage of the president?” he asked.
“The president wants to make sure that we denuclearize the peninsula and that we’re securing and helping have a safer world,” Sanders said.
“I’m glad that you are acknowledging a lot of problems of North Korea because just a couple weeks ago, a lot of members in the press were actually elevating North Korea and some of the members of the regime and comparing them to people in the United States and in this administration. I think that is actually what put North Korea on a similar stage.” (RELATED: ‘April, That Was Very Polite Of You’ — Sarah Sanders And April Ryan Share Funny Moment)
“No action by this administration has even remotely demonstrated a level of rise that the media did during the Olympics and through some of those stories.”
