CNN anchor Jake Tapper seemingly slammed his own network’s coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in South Korea Sunday night; attacking the channel’s glowing praise of Kim Jong Un’s brutal regime after suggesting the despot’s sister should win the “gold medal” for diplomacy.
Tapper’s comments come as the cable news network found itself in hot-water over a recent article that praised Kim Jong Un’s sister for her stellar “diplomacy” at the international competition; mingling with world leaders and even South Korea’s president during the games.
“If ‘diplomatic dance’ were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un’s younger sister would be favored to win gold. With a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea’s presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the Pyeongchang Games,” writes CNN.
Tapper seemingly slammed his own network’s pro-North Korean puff piece, writing, “If you hate US leaders more than you hate the Kim Jong-un regime, you really need to read up on North Korea,” before posting links to various human rights violations committed by the communist dictatorship.
If you hate US leaders more than you hate the Kim Jong-un regime, you really need to read up on North Korea.

HELL FREEZES OVER: CNN Calls Out LIBERAL HYPOCRISY Over FISA Memo
Sanity and reason returned to CNN for a brief moment Monday morning when an anchor at the cable news network called-out the liberal hypocrisy regarding the recently released FISA memo; asking a left-wing legislator if releasing a “Democratic rebuttal” would be “extremely reckless as well.”
CNN host Alisyn Camerota was speaking with Democratic Rep. Pete Aguilar earlier Monday; pressing the California congressman to comment on the House Intelligence Committee’s decision to release the controversial FISA memo last week.
“Let’s put all of these memos out there and let the American public decide and weigh-in,” said Aguilar. “It’s been ridiculous. This is a failed partisan attempt to discredit the FBI because the FBI is investigating the President and his associates.”
“How can their release be extremely reckless, but you want the Democratic rebuttal released?” asked Camerota. “Isn’t that the same thing? Wouldn’t that be extremely reckless as well?”
Watch the brief moment of sanity below:

HELL FREEZES OVER: Destroy-Trump Media ADMITS President’s Speech a ‘HUGE’ Success
Members of the destroy-Trump media were desperately attempting to spin the President’s first State of the Union address Tuesday night, but were forced to report on polls that show the vast majority of American’s highly approved of Trump’s primetime speech.
According to CBS News, a whopping 75% of Americans liked what they heard from their Commander-in-Chief, with 25% disapproving.
The figures broke down largely along party lines, with nine in ten GOP viewers saying the address made them “proud” and nearly half of Democrats saying it made them feel “angry.”
“Eight in 10 Americans who watched tonight felt that the president was trying to unite the country, rather than divide it. Two-thirds said the speech made them feel proud, though just a third said it made them feel safer. Fewer said the speech made them feel angry or scared,” admits CBS.
The positive feedback gives the President more political capital as the government sets its sights on tackling immigration reform, a hot-button issue last addressed in the 1970s.
Trump outlined his vision for overhauling the nation’s outdated immigration system Tuesday night, saying he was prepared to provide a “pathway to citizenship” for nearly 2 million ‘Dreamers’ in exchange for billions in border wall funding.
