White House Quotes Obama Out Of Context To Defend Trump’s Threat To “Completely Destroy” North Korea

The Daily Kos reports:

When you take the position of press secretary in the Trump White House, the first thing they teach you is highly selective editing.

That certainly makes it appear that President Obama made the same unvarnished threat as Donald Trump, only in that case the national press didn’t raise an eyebrow.

Clearly another case where Trump is being held to a higher standard for policy that’s just the same as past administrations. That is, except for some pesky words located adjacent to those that Sanders lifted.

“It’s not something that lends itself to an easy solution,” Mr. Obama said. “We could, obviously, destroy North Korea with our arsenals. But aside from the humanitarian costs of that, they are right next door to our vital ally, Republic of Korea.”

Obama: Why we can’t destroy. Trump: Why we have no choice but to destroy. Sanders: There’s no difference.

      The colonel poisoned me once. Ate some of his chicken and spent a day in the hospital. Ten years ago. Last time I ate KFC.

      • Steverino

        Working at KFC was my first job, at age 15 in 1971. Starting wage was $1.14 an hour. Quit two years later after graduating high school. Oh, the stories I could tell… I could get sued… So I won’t…

    • gaycuckhubby

      The one thing the Trump campaign was good at was causing in fighting and controversy. I’m half convinced they picked Sarah Huckabee Sanders as spokesperson JUST because her last name is Sanders and it will subconsciously stoke the Clinton Sanders divide every time her name is mentioned

    • Steverino

      The Colonel allegedly once said during an interview on a Canadian radio station that he “would never serve a cocksucker his chicken.”

      Oh, there is so much I could deconstruct from that quote…

    I think that “highly selective editing” is the second thing that press secretaries in the Trump White House learn.

            I’m told it’s horrible. I’ve long since purged the taste from my brain (that was the only pop we had in the house, growing up).

          • Joe in PA

            I like your comment, but I was actually referring to “Tab” being the thing you put in a “slot” in an internet porn video. 🙂 Just assume I’m saying something naughty. 🙂

            Hey, you must be from the midwest…you called it “pop”. From MN here and that’s what we called it. And I think my mom drank Tab because it was diet?

          • RJ Bone

            Gotcha 🙂 I mostly default to pervy, but every now and then I try to live like the others do 😉 I fail miserably, but I DO try.

            Yeah, I was born in Nebraska and lived there until I was 11, then moved to El Paso because my dad got a teaching job there. Oregon after that, Pittsburgh after that and roundabout back to Texas (bleh).

            People kept trying to get me to call it “coke” generically in the south or soda, when I moved to Oregon, but pop has just stuck. 😉

          Bernard John Taupin is an English lyricist, poet, and singer, best known for his long-term collaboration with Elton John, writing the lyrics for the majority of the star’s songs, and making his lyrics some of the best known in music history.More at Wikipedia

            https://youtu.be/5JoPFIWOONU

          • Thanks for posting a new video of her, but yeah still a solid no. Not a fan of slow emotional sort of songs. I go more for this…

          • greenmanTN

            I never really cared much for hard-core rock. Though the music I like is considered alt-rock, not mainstream, there is usually, though not always, a somewhat mellow side to it. I’m tense enough without adding guitar riffs to the mix!

            https://youtu.be/YNjCugzVPqA

            https://youtu.be/cSgd1CugnfQ

          • Ok, I’ll be the first to admit just how odd I truly am. Slow songs, emotional songs make me tense, my shoulders raise, and my stomach knots up.

            Chrome isn’t bad! A tiny bit repetitive, but fun! Pinetop Seven is a solid, “oh hell no!”.

          • greenmanTN

            In high school a friend came to visit and I was doing my DJ thing, playing music but changing them before the songs had finished, which I tend to do when I’m anxious. She looked at me and asked, “You’re high-strung, aren’t you?”

            Well, yes, yes I am and certain pitches and guitar riffs give me a feeling like claustrophobia, like I have to get away. I’ve learned to control it, but in the past I would sometimes lash out physically to get away from it. It isn’t physical pain, though it is similar, and I absolutely can’t stand it.

            So even the stuff I like that to others might seem rough is always bass heavy. Eh, it is what it is. I’m also very into lyrics.

            https://youtu.be/zN-GGeNPQEg

          • isn’t it fascinating how the same song can be soothing, upbeat or torture to different people? There are only two bands who I loved the lyrics to, and could sing most of them, Linkin Park and Marilyn Manson. But for the most part I prefer Japanese music due to not being held to the lyrics and just enjoy the sounds. Sorry, that song is a miss for me too.

          • greenmanTN

            Eh, no harm no foul. People like different things and you have to respect that, even though they’re wrong. 😉

            I suspect we have very different tastes and nothing I like will appeal to you. Ok, maybe one.

            https://youtu.be/TLV4_xaYynY

          • YES!! I do like this one!

            But of course I’m wrong, I told ya that I was musically weird.

            Oh! I do have a slow song you might like! Give this one a try,
            https://vimeo.com/142294637

          • greenmanTN

            Wow. That IS very different from the other things you’ve posted. I really haven’t had much exposure to Japanese music though I like Ryuichi Sakamoto a lot.

            I couldn’t find my favorite song from the album, which is in Japanese, but this is my 2nd favorite.

            https://youtu.be/KDBLtOMYS00

            Then there was the Japanese new-wave band The Plastics. I bought an album of there’s but didn’t really like it that much.

            https://youtu.be/KDBLtOMYS00

          • I became interested in Japanese music through a young friend of mine from Singapore. I have terrible issues with songs ear worming me, but when one doesn’t know the language, its quite a bit harder to ear worm. I’m totally cool with music ear worming me, just not lyrics.

        The international press seems to agree:

        ‘A blunt, fearful rant: Trump’s UN speech left presidential norms in the dust
        His maiden address was unlike any delivered by a US president, and when it was over a sense of incoherence and menace hung in the air’

        ‘There can not have been many, if any, threats to “totally destroy”
        another nation at a UN general assembly. He did not even direct the
        threat at the regime, making it clear it was North Korea as a country that was at peril.
        Trump issued the warning just minutes after the UN secretary general, António Guterres, had appealed for calmer rhetoric. “Fiery talk can lead to fatal misunderstandings,” Guterres had said in his own first general assembly address, and it was clear who those remarks were directed towards.

        Saudi Arabia was not mentioned. Nor was Russia…. .’
