This video clip from Fox & Friends yesterday is really bizarre:
Fox and Friends: Why do you think he [Kim Jong Un] agreed to this meeting?
Pete Hegseth: I think he wants a picture with the America president. The sanctions are having massive effect there, there’s no doubt. The Chinese have put the screws to them on that, the Chines are playing a double game, absolutely. And then I think there’s probably a point at which the guy who wants to meet with Dennis Rodman and loves NBA basketball and loves Western pop culture probably doesn’t love being the guy who has to murder his people all day long, probably wants some normalization, and let’s give it to him if we can make the world safer.
It’s not unusual for Fox & Friends to be bizarre, but making a ruthless dictator sound like he’s just an average guy with a heart of gold who is just so, so tired of having to murder people is way out there.
