And yet, ABC anchor Terry Moran said Trump’s vow to retaliate “borders on the threat of committing a war crime,” the kind of comment you’d mock an MSNBC prime-time host for saying. (Lawrence O’Donnell actually did say the same thing. “At UN Trump threatened to commit a war crime,” he tweeted Tuesday.)

Jessica Schulberg, a reporter for the liberal Huffington Post, even suggested that Trump’s comments justify North Korea’s provocations. “Gee, Kim Jon-un is so irrational for wanting nuclear weapons,” she said on Twitter.

Kim starves his own people and the media are siding with him over them and, more importantly, us.
